The three spots - 'Cafe Au Lait', 'Chocolatte' and 'Mango' - were produced by Brainestorm Studios' Marty Braine.

Listen to the spots here.

Braine produced the overall campaign winner - Alcoholics Anonymous - in the 2012 Sirens.

The Siren Awards are a national competition held annually by Commercial Radio Australia to encourage excellence and creativity in commercial radio advertising.

Sorry, I love Steve and I think he's brilliant, but I didn't like these ads. It feels like it as a quiet month at the Sirens and this campaign did a Steven Bradbury.

There's no insight in the campaign. Sure they're quirky, but I don't see how they will get noticed or move product.

Sorry Steve. Normally everything you do is amazing. I just don't like these.

Congratulations Steve and Marty. Fantastic spots.

Top effort, Stevie and Marty.

I'd like to thank Not Convinced for his/her post. His/her kind comments and his/her candour. There is, dare I say, a modicum of insight in this campaign. It seemed to me there was a trend which said ' radio target audience for flavoured milk is tradies'. So I took that premise and turned it around (a bit). So I wrote some ads where yer more sophisticated tradies drink a higher caliber of milk. So it is vaguely strategic. Banninster Downs Dairy is a direct client; so I'll get instant feedback on whether or not they sold more flavoured milk. I'll keep you posted :-)

These were actually done by Justin.
Sorry Marty.
Can I get you a coffee?

Mr Browning, you are far too much a proper gentlemen to be dragged down to the level of these petty muckrakers.

A thinly veiled insult is the best form of constructive criticism you’ll ever find here.

Don’t you have novels to write, sipping cognac fireside? Stay away…these people will steal your soul.

And congrats too ;)

Good Jobs, Mr Steve.

The Kiwi's did the exact same idea so much better for Jesters Pies. Can't find a link, but if you've got the latest CB national mag lying around check out creative circle NZ.
