The Cannes festival takes place in June. TAKEAWAY CHICKEN TAKEN AWAY A “STREET MAGICIAN” – Shayne Graham – persuades two young women to close their eyes and concentrate on a playing card held against their foreheads. Then he absconds with their Chicken Licken takeaway. It’s one of a series of humorous ads devised by Net#work BBDO. Demand was so strong after the new campaign launched that Chicken Licken’s Booysens outlet almost ran out of chicken.
OGILVY GROUP’S retail advertising specialist – Zoom Advertising – has been awarded the Sasko bread packaging, Cape Deli and SportSkin accounts.
