Someone going to some lengths to stay anomymous has pointed at us the Canberra Times reporting on the “pitch perfect” entries to the Canberra Marketing Forum.

Can’t vote! The whole voting area seems to be hyperlinked to the CT link.

I liked Gray’s best anyway. :)

So ads #1 (Gray/Greens) and 2 (Zoo/Lib) tell me The Greens are the team to beat. Ad #3 (Adcorp/Lab) is a plum served in a gentleman’s hat (i.e. bonkers).

Very poor efforts all-round. 100% smear/smarm, 0% policy. I would not engage any of these agencies if I were involves (but the faux Jim Henson’s pretty convincing).

cant vote either – ZOO is the cleverest in my view (if i understood what a folding green was) but none of them are truly excellent. back to the drawing board i say.

It’s usually a euphemism for money, but I haven’t re-watched the ad to check if that meaning would be appropriate in the context.

All of the ads are lame – just like the three products on offer.

You forgot one Johnboy. There should be a radio button for “Can’t decide, they are all lame.”

I mean seriously, this is teh best people can come up with?????

I can’t find any site taking bets on the ACT election (or even giving odds for that matter)… Anyone know?

First two were pretty funny, last one seemed kind of pointless.
