The announcement of the 2011 Emmy nominations have given us six competitors under the category of Outstanding Commercial who seem to have all that it takes to score. From celebrity appearances, polar bears, babies, Indian flea markets, to even Isaiah Mustafa wearing nothing but a towel, it looks as if the choice will be pretty difficult. Kudos to the brands who made the list- McDonald's, Chrysler, Subaru, Nissan, Old Spice and American Express- and especially to agencies TBWA and Wieden+Kennedy, as well as Ogilvy and Carmichael Lynch for their outstanding work and nominations.
I am, however, surprised to see that the Super Bowl smash hit- Volkswagen's "The Force"- didn't make the cut... but nevertheless, here are the nominees!
Agency: TBWA\Chiat\Day New York
Title: "Born on Fire"
