Now celebrating its 28th year in existence, the
2004 British Television Advertising Awards
returns for another rousing year from December 3-30, with Walker Art Center-presented screenings at the Theatre at the Woman’s Club of Minneapolis. Awards Administrator Peter Bigg will be on hand to introduce the opening-night screenings on Friday, December 3, at 7 and 9:30 pm. Remaining programs during the month include evening and matinee screenings.
Nearly 10,000 people attended last year’s sold-out screenings of the British Television Advertising Awards. This year’s winners are even more innovative, racy, and side-splitting. U.S. celebrities Spike Lee, Carrie Fisher, and Roy Scheider promote mobile-phone company Orange, while David Beckham pitches Adidas. Trojan Condoms takes a Gold Award for an explicit viral campaign that was spread by e-mail users. Honda Accord’s entry—inspired by Rube Goldberg and Fischli and Weiss’ The Way Things Go—wins Best Commercial of the Year and is sure to delight.
