Fake Kia Ad Gets 5 Brazilian Creatives Banned From 2012 Cannes Festival

Rate This Social Media Outrage at Hint of Pedophilia Prompted Closer Scrutiny of Moma Propaganda’s Entry By: Laurel Wentz, Claudia Penteado Published: July 21, 2011 [+] Share | Email| Reprints| Print| For the first time, the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity is banning agency creatives from next year’s festival after stripping independent Brazilian shop Moma Propaganda of two Lions won at the Cannes awards for apparently fake ads for Kia Motors Brazil. After the June festival, a firestorm of bad publicity swept social media, criticizing the campaign for overtones of lust and pedophilia. Automotive News, Ad Age’s sibling publication, described the two print and outdoor ads, intended to promote the Kia Sportage’s dual-zone hot-and-cold climate control feature, as comic strip-style scenarios with family-friendly images on one side, juxtaposed with racy, adult fantasies on the other, including a male teacher helping an elementary school girl. When Kia denied approving the ads, the festival investigated. "The Cannes Lions rules state clearly that if requested, proof must be provided that campaigns ran and were legitimately created for a fee-paying client," festival CEO Philip Thomas said in a statement. "Despite many conversations, Moma Propaganda have not provided the proof we require and therefore the Lions have been withdrawn." Although the Cannes festival has stripped agencies of their prizes before when ads have turned out to be fakes created to win awards, this is the first time the creatives responsible have been banned from entering future work at Cannes. The one-year ban covering the 2012 festival applies to individuals listed on the credits and affects five people at Moma Propaganda, a festival spokeswoman said.

The two awards rescinded by Cannes are a Silver Lion in the print category and a Bronze Lion in outdoor. The campaign featured two ads, "Teacher," in which a male teacher fantasizes about a little girl, and "Princess," juxtaposing the Sleeping Beauty fairy tale with an X-rated version. A Kia Motors Brazil public relations exec said the company had no comment because the marketer had not approved the campaign. At Moma Propaganda, a medium-size Sao Paulo agency owned by Rodolfo Sampaio and Fico Meirelles, neither partner returned calls, and Mr. Sampaio’s office said he was on vacation. Although Brazilians’ irresistible compulsion to create fake ads to win awards has blown up again, it’s not always an unforgivable offense in that Cannes-crazy country. Although the agency had to send back two Lions, in typical Brazilian fashion Kia Motors’ Brazilian distributor is still on Moma’s client list, along with Sherwin Williams, a shopping mall called Center Norte, Herbalife and local home furnishings store Camicado.

a senior gentleman. 2011 by Alvin Saldanha Rate This I direct your attention to Shaziya Khan’s wonderful post. April 13. with all the pride with which he usually tells me about some fabulous new thing he has acquired. I have been a Madras Cafe connoisseur for the last 45 years. pristine and flawless. and the coffee is served to us in little plastic cups. where Samta’s mum is waiting for us at the door of Madras Cafe. not sold. And what is Pervez’s bright idea? “Lets have filter coffee at Madras Cafe”. He withdraws the bill. I take matters into my hands and yank the bill from the waiter’s hand. The waiter has an expression so severe and disapproving. 2. and shoots a glance at Samta’s mum. a mere 10 minute walk from Madras Cafe. is unimpressed with the fact that I order in Tulu. and I sip at perfect South Indian coffee. a Dadar Parsi Colony boy and a Don Bosco Matunga boy …. I picked up a good friend. He knows her. but then I am South Indian and am defenceless against all idlis. and the coffee that is a world of meaning beyond its immaculate taste. from way back at HTA. So we glide over. Samta’s mum says no. I am free to admit that I have always had a soft spot for Shaziya. I am a South Indian from Matunga. you’d think I yanked the bill from Samta’s mum’s hand. as she flew in from Shanghai. so in sheer agreement with Shazia’s blog about brands being bought. the waiter. it is about Madras Cafe. featured inCampaign India. Now that I am old and Shaziya is wiser. Pervez has a bright idea. We get a seat immediately. she plans to treat us. and immediately? She wants to go straight to Madras Cafe and eat idlis. . When the bill arrives.An idli by any other name …. here are two personal stories to tell. “I got myself a filter coffee maker from Madras Cafe”. Samta Lalan. To turn a phrase she is the quintessential idli: pure. I reach for it. 1. But a couple of months ago. (Samta lives in the lane opposite to Madras Cafe). And what does the very idli grade Samta want to do. So we drive to Matunga from Sahar. And there we are. But this is not about Shaziya. I know Shaziya from many years. Being a student of Don Bosco. we order the idlis. All going to prove that Madras Cafe is a brand in the classic sense of the word: down to the minutest personal interaction. On the way back from the BMW X Series launch. But he has a broad smile for Samta’s mum. telling myself that sipping Madras Cafe filter coffee from a little plastic cup in the back seat of a top-of-the-line Mercedes is a experience that is difficult to describe adequately. and very territorial about Madras Cafe. Pervez tells me. so you are justified in saying that this is a moot point. ensconced in Parvez Damania’s S Class Mercedes.

It does not dilute its Café-Madras-ness. The waiters at Madras Cafe are borderline surly. Madras Cafe is for connoisseurs who want Madras Cafe. never one for conversation.

believing or forwarding badinfo can be unhealthy or fatal. the discovery and use of knowledge might be at stake. I believe that what people know – and how many people know – matters. the issue of information literacy could be even more important than the health or education of some individuals. Nobody knows how this clash will play out. But the noise death of the Internet is something we can take on and win.
