Our Online Survey

Published on .

Sixty-three percent of AdAge.com's voters disagree with the judges in awarding the Cannes Lions Grand Prix to Wieden & Kennedy's "Grrr" commercial for Honda. But while the majority in our anonymous online poll took a shot at the spot-perhaps preferring their own entries-none were willing to attach their name to a negative comment.

"Why not? In a world of hard surfaces and sharp edges, anything that makes us smile has value beyond its measurable worth. It's fun-'Yellow Submarine' meets PBS-and it gets the job done. "

-Robert Sawyer/creative director/Robert Sawyer/New York

"Hate is a powerful word and Wieden & Kennedy managed to immediately change that power with music, with green hedges and with fuzzy bunnies. This is not the most amazing commercial I have ever seen, but you have to admit it delivers its message on many levels. "

-Brian Hopkins/graduate student/Yale University/New Haven, Conn.

"This is yet another great marketing campaign from Honda. ... It will be interesting to see the success of this whole show-I have no doubt in my mind that this will be a benefit not just for the guys (and grrrls) at Honda and their marketing people, but for everyone."

-Lever/Web designer/Forever Blue Skies/Farnborough, England
