This week's guest judge is Nick Pringle, creative director at Grey, New York.

It's unpleasantly early in the morning here in New York, so I've caffeinated and eaten a pastry with an unpronounceable filling. In light of the pressing 12pm deadline, I'm going to try and keep short and sweet-ish. READ MORE...
VW POLO.jpgA drive in the New 2014 Polo is quite indescribable. In fact, very few things feel as good. This is the premise behind DDB Mudra West's latest Volkswagen commercial for the Indian market. The idea was born out of drawing parallels to the few moments in life that feel as good.

Like all Volkswagen commercials, this one too needed to be endearing and simple, yet entertaining at the same time. Taking forward the thought of 'Feels that good', the film illustrates the story of two brothers. The younger of the two always gets the raw end of the stick, as he ends up with all the 'hand-me-downs' from his cooler older sibling. From school books to uniforms to shoes and even bicycles, it's always second-hand. Ultimately, the story takes a big turn. The younger brother, now all grown up, comes into his own when we see him driving the sparkling New Polo, while his older sibling is still using a nondescript old car.

Can't recall which one it was now. Anyway, we all had to write down what we thought it meant, and it turned out that different kids saw the meaning very differently. I remember asking the teacher what the 'right answer' was, and him saying there was "no right or wrong," and it was an achievement that the poet had created something that was "open to multiple interpretations."
