Thor: The Dark World’s final total of £20.1m may be out of reach but it’s still a strong performance. Noah moved up one spot to second, with £1.6m for a cume of £5.9m. That’s a decent hold and with Easter this week, it may get a seasonal boost.

ITV Presents: The 2014 Spotlight Lecture – The Golden Age of Bullshit at Advertising Week Europe

adweek-2014_website-banner_generic_box-office

What kind of shmuck comes all the way from San Francisco to London to talk about bullshit? Bob Hoffman, in his own words, is who.

Introduced to the stage by ITN broadcaster Mark Austin, Hoffman, author of The Ad Contrarian and partner of Type A Group, presented a frank and provocative discussion on how ‘bullshit’ has come to be a powerful weapon that has gone on to cause damage to consumers, clients and ultimately ourselves. We were warned that the three objectives of his talk were to annoy people, contradict everything we were likely to have been told at Ad Week so far and have us leave the building feeling sceptical and uncomfortable. The auditorium of media and advertising professionals was about to have years of their industry beliefs torn apart.

Gyn Jones, of the class of ’87 and now Group CEO at BBH, immediately raised a chuckle with an anecdote of two contrasting days in his early employment at BBH, a glamorous overseas Levi’s shoot, followed by stock-checking feminine sanitary products at a Croydon supermarket. His purpose, in illustrating that his training balanced both the creative and the data, was to suggest that this was something that had been lost in the fragmented, specialism-oriented marketing approach of today.
