The 20 Best Ads Of The 21st Century, So Far

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.

“This new reel that resulted has turned out to be a compilation of 20 demonstrations of pure genius,” the trio wrote on the site.

“Please join us in applauding the agencies, agency teams, clients, directors and production companies who stand behind this wonderful body of work.”
