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.

One of the undisputed stars of lockdown has been Andrew Cotter with his nail-biting commentary of dogs Mabel and Olive. You can tell Maltesers are fans, as they enlist John Motson to mark the return of top-flight football. This 20 ad sees Motty report on his cramped dishwasher, as the psychological effects of lockdown are laid bare.
