“The Pitch” is always one of the more enjoyable segments of The Gruen Transfer / Gruen Nation.
Last night one of the fake advertisements created for The Greens was so darned impressive, it beats the real thing they are currently running.
The ad was created by jointly by Eran Thomson a Director at The Colony who co-wrote the ad with Ben Peacock from advertising agency Republic of Everyone which notes on its website, “Whether green, ethical, health or fitness, we help companies build sustainability credentials and NGOs create positive change.”
UPDATED: Greens spokeswoman Ebony Bennett confirmed the party had contacted Republic of Everyone and the ABC requesting to use the advertisement. The ABC will not allow it be used during the campaign, stating it owns the rights and the “ABC can’t provide one side’s advertising”. Source: smh.com.au
