Honda "Cog"
Honda's "Cog" spot from Wieden + Kennedy/London collected yet another honor Friday at the One Show, where the commercial was named Best of Show. Dating back to last year, the commercial has won a Gold Lion and the Best of Show honor at the Andy Awards.

Two top awards were also presented for Exceptional Innovation in Marketing -- an honor sponsored by Yahoo! One went to Wieden + Kennedy/New York for its "Beta-7" blog campaign for Sega's NFL ESPN Football. The other went to TBWA/Japan and 180 Amsterdam for the Adidas billboard "Vertical Football," which featured actual soccer players -- suspended by cables -- dueling it out high above the streets.

Beta-7: An Overview
TBWA was the winningest network of the night with 13 Pencils, followed by BBDO and Crispin Porter + Bogusky, each with 12 Pencils. CP+B/Miami was by far the most honored single office of the night with 11 Pencils: 4 Golds, 4 Silvers and 3 Bronzes.

Other TV Gold-winners included a pair of campaigns from Arnold and CP+B for the American Legacy Foundation; BBDO/New York's "Career Maker" commercial for FedEx; TBWA/Chiat/Day/L.A.'s fanciful campaign for the PS2 game Ratchet & Clank; and MTV's animated branding campaign "Watch & Learn."
