Spark: “Wedding Speech” - 2 mins
Telecom company Spark tug firmly on New Zealanders' heartstrings with this touching film. Urging viewers not to leave anything unsaid with their nearest and dearest, it follows one woman's tumultuous route to the altar - both with and without one of the most important people in her life.
The ad is cleverly constructed, as director Christopher Riggert shows us snippets of turmoil juxtaposed with a wedding speech which has the audience begging for a happy ending. And there is one... of sorts, delivered with a poignancy which underlines the bittersweet reality that sometimes, a promise can't be kept as intended.
