Of all the automotive commercials in the world

Elizabeth Miller, Agency Liaison

VW - Milky Way - Commercial

The One Club recently selected headmaster, Shane Hutton's Milky Way/Volkswagen spot as one of the Top 10 Automobile Commercials of the Past 25 Years. Milky Way has earned plenty of awards since its debut in 1999, but being honored as one of the 10 best commercials out of the thousands of automotive ads that have been created over the past 25 years is quite an accomplishment. A panel comprised of more than 70 leading advertising creatives and journalists selected the top ten from a pool of over 60 award-winning spots. Congratulations, Headmaster Hutton, you never cease to amaze us with your talents. Sometimes that talent is your vast knowledge of Japanese culture or mad video games skills but most of the time is it your ability to poetically craft copy and produce work that stands the test of time such as Milky Way. Well done, sir, well done. Click here to view a write up in the Huffington Post where they share a little insight on the development of Milky Way. Nick Drake would definitely be smiling about this today.
