Brilliant Dummy

Published on .

This Gold-plated cinema spot by Black Rocket was an instant hit, and it's easy to see why: the :90 has a sparkling storyline (woman's shopping pal is a mannequin), a well-defined arc (she eventually loses her boyfriend to her artificial friend) and a catchy - perhaps too catchy - jingle, written by the agency creatives. Sing along: "I've said it before and I'll say it again. My best friend is a maaannnaaaquin . . ."
