The Top Screen Ads of 2012 (mUmBRELLA)

by Colin Hay, December 20, 2012


In this roundup from the Encore and Mumbrella Annual, we look at the year’s best screen ads.

1. Telstra – Land Down Under

Launched ahead of the 2012 Olympic games, DDB Sydney’s spine-tingling rendition of Men At Work’s Land Down Under was a fitting tribute to the Australian athletes competing in London.

The band’s lead singer and guitarist Colin Hay directs groups of Aussies in a rendition of the anthem, including a school choir and an AFL team inspiring a feeling of patriotism rarely found outside the sports arena.
