Bouncing foxes, dancing builders, a teenage punk rocker and Adrien Brody are not, perhaps, a group of characters you would usually expect to find listed together but these, and more, are among the cast members in the most popular ads from the Campaign website during 2016.
As well as being admirers of John Lewis’s Christmas gem and Wes Anderson’s highly stylised spot for H&M, it looks as though Campaign readers could also be fans of Strictly.
The « epic » dance routines for Moneysupermarket.com make two appearances in the list, which also features Will.i.am sittin’ on the dock of the bay with a cup of Nescafe, a Buzzcocks classic and a tetchy Bradley Wiggins.
