2009 British Television Advertising Awards: Walker preview in pics

Darn those Brits, they always get the best of everything: sounding cool no matter how dull the conversation, casually swearing on network TV, claiming both the Rolling Stones and Noel Fielding (pause, please, for a quick swoon). The same is true when it comes to television commercials. We get Budweiser frogs and they get Muppets, life-size puzzles, pasty nudity that's somehow hilarious and 15-minute PSAs that entertain all the way through to the very end. You can see the best spots of the year this month through January 2nd at the Walker, The British Television Advertising Awards always a hot installment that cheekily point to a different kind of marketing strategy 'cross the pond. Twin Cities Anglophiles unite.
