We’re all in favour of a good ol’ list over at B&T and the Gunn Report has delivered with its top 20 ads from the 21st Century thus far.

The Gunn Report, managed by founder Donald Gunn, managing director Emma Wilkie and director of communications Amanda Benfell, asked 1754 citizens of adland for their say in the ads.
