Sadly for us, Nike "Streaker," the spot that gave us "I do hope he's not headed for the Royal Box" is the last North American effort we've seen from the director most would, if pressed, dub the best commercials guy working. Budgen's latest U.K. ad, Audi's "Thirsty Fish," out of BBH/London, adds to the moody and slick yet witty vein (see Levi's "Twist" and "Worn") running through the director's work.

Next up is a new spot for the BBC out of AMV BBDO and, we hope, a return to the bosom of the American commercials industry?
