Ric Cantor Wins an Axis

Ric Cantor’s spot “Hello” for the New Zealand Transport Agency can’t be stopped. After taking Cannes by storm, this week it’s back in New Zealand taking home an Axis Award. The Axis Awards “celebrate the very best advertising in New Zealand.” I think “Hello” qualifies. If you haven’t seen this PSA yet (and at this…

Ric’s New Savills Spot Hits a Nerve

If you like inanimate objects talking then Ric Cantor’s latest ad for Savills is the one for you! Personally, ever since I saw Toy Story I often fear that my belongings can hear me and, frankly, I find this new spot quite unnerving. The commercial finds a couple returning from a day of house hunting…

AdWeek Calls Ric’s New Spot “Devilishly Good”

Cell phones distracting drivers is a global issue. Last year alone there were 1.6 million car accidents caused by cell phone distractions but, unfortunately, that message is not getting across to drivers. The stats for accidents just keeps rising. Nothing seems to work, not government agencies flatly stating statistics, not warnings on GPS and certain…

Ric Cantor and Julie Bowen Team Up With SU2C

I think by now we can all agree, cancer is a son of a bitch. Walk down any street in the world and you’d be hard pressed to find one person who hasn’t been directly or indirectly, through family members or friends, affected by this d-bag of a disease. And it’s that universality, that sense…
