Feel that nip in the air? That's the chilling realization that the nation's cultural critics have begun releasing their 2012 top 10 lists. Don't they even have decency to wait until December?
The list released by AdWeek today won't comfort anybody who thinks Christmas has gotten too commercial—it is, after all, a list of commercials.
But we're bringing it to your attention because Portland ad agency Wieden and Kennedy made the list three times. No other agency had more than one commercial on the list.
So yeah, it's going to be a pleasant holiday for the Pearl District creatives laboring under Dan Wieden's giant wooden beaver. You can share in their joy by watching the three honored ads. They feature Clint Eastwood, a jogger, and your mom.
8th Place: Proctor & Gamble, "Best Job."
7th Place: Chrysler, "It's Halftime in America."
2nd Place: Nike, "Jogger."
