Top of the list

According to the ranking made by the magazine El Publicista, agosto has been the most awarded prodco in Spain during 2010.


Audi – Robot

Robot, the new spot by Nacho Gayán for Audi & DDB.

It tells the story of a little tin robot that envies the capabilities of a much more advanced model and a toy car that feels the same way watching  the new A4. As the claim says, we all look up on someone.

The soundtrack features a nice cover of the song If I Only Had a Heart, the song sung by the tin-man in The Wizard of Oz.
