No Room at the Ritz

Published on .

It's video holiday card time in the ad world, and -- as usual -- London agency Mother has come through with the most irreverent. Visit www.josefandmari.com and watch a couple posing as the parents of the Lord as they try to get a room at the Hotel Inter-Continental, among other high-end inns. And for even more Christmas crassness, check out this viral spot -- directed by Patrik Bergh of Partizan/London -- for online sex shop annsummers.com. Just try not to think about how much it resembles Frank Budgen's Lion-winning print campaign for Coco de Mer from a few years back. Come all ye faithful, indeed.
