Banks a fine ACT MP…

There are a couple of nice pieces in the Herald today on upstanding ACT MP John Banks – on his advising arrested Kim Dotcom on residency and the Overseas Investment Commission, and on his “National” billboards…

National: Building a blighted future

Since the nutters on the right at the sewer (otherwise known as the kiwiblog comments) seem to have a thing about billboards (probably because they can’t handle actual politics or actual policy). So to keep them entertained and running around like headless chickens rather than doing any actual political action – here is another billboard to keep everyone amused watching them.

DPF thinks that comparing Lockwood Smith to a KKK member is “a pretty disgusting smear”.  Could this be the same DPF who ran a billboard campaign comparing Labour government politicians to brutal dictators?

Labour billboard campaign

Labour have been running a competition to crowd source their billboard design.  Here is the winner, which (see Red Alert) will be going up around Wellington shortly.  It’s going to provoke some controversy.

John Banks: Signs I’d like to see

John Banks has gone big on billboards in his campaign for mayor.  So I thought I’d show some that I’d like to see…

The Greens’ billboards, too good?

Written By: - Date published: 4:50 pm, September 7th, 2008 - 85 comments

I’m impressed with the Green’s new billboard campaign and I’m pretty certain it’ll work as it is clean and effective marketing and reminds me of the best work that was coming out of Saatchi when they were at the peak of their powers. One thing about the billboards disquiets me however, and that is that […]

The Greens billboards have shown how it’s done – striking and simple without being dishonest or simplistic. Maybe National could imitate them: Maybe not.

National’s new billboard. It’s like when your Dad tries to rap.

It just gets worse

Just when you thought National’s billboard campaign couldn’t possibly get any weaker, reports emerge that their next one will say: “Get youth into training, not into trouble” Honestly guys, just cut your losses and start again. [UPDATE: Apparently the first of this run is going up in Vivian Street today.]

Choosing a Righter Future

A couple more National Party billboards I whipped up in my lunch break. You know, when the original is so godawful it takes all the fun out of the parody. Step it up could you, National? Even Ansell’s better than this… (Click on the images for larger versions or here for more submitted by readers.)

Weak

Perhaps I’ve overestimated the National Party’s PR machine. I mean I’ve seen them run their C/T strategy pretty well and, as much as I hate to admit it, Ansell’s billboards were pretty bloody good last time. But then I opened the PDF with their latest billboard on it. It’s busy, the message is confusing, and […]
