Andy McLeod

There aren't many people who can claim to have introduced a concept that has entered the lexicon but next time you describe an acquired taste as being a bit Marmite, offer a nod of thanks to Andy Macleod because - once upon a time - McLeod and his erstwhile creative partner Richard Flintham decided that their contrasting views of the yeast-based spread would make for an advertising campaign.

That and the other excellent work the duo created during their tenure at Fallon has made it difficult for director Andy McLeod to compete with the achievements of copywriter Andy McLeod... but he's getting there and has quietly compiled an extremely eclectic reel of understated gems.

"Chicken Legend"
The British are notorious for our love of an underdog, from Susan Boyle to Leicester City, so perhaps it's no surprise that McDonald's have given their latest 'Chicken Legend' the Eddie 'The Eagle' Edwards treatment. We see a canoeist who isn't quite ready for his big race pausing to fix his glove before he sets off... losing his oar in the process.
