Mischke show notes: Nov. 23, 2009
Today on Citypages.com's 'In The Stream' with T.D. Mischke it's the British Advertising Awards. Coming to the Walker in one week.
On the show I'll interview Peter Bigg, British Television Advertising Awards Administrator as he prepares for his trip to our neck of the woods to host the big show at the Walker. Brimming with creativity and chosen by top advertising executives and producers across the globe, these sly, sexy, hilarious, and thought-provoking British advertisements have been a Walker Arts Center highlight for 21 years. The program this year includes dancing marionettes, monkeys, and nudists as well as American celebrities Snoop Dogg, Rob Lowe, and Anjelica Huston hawking products to UK audiences. You'll also catch an '80s flashback for Virgin Airlines, a scandalous piece for Guess apparel, and highlights from the history of 20th-century Britain condensed into 120 seconds for a bread commercial. Among the standouts this year is a spectacular skydiving stunt for Honda that was broadcast live.
