Happy Anniversary George

It's the 75th anniversary of the agency everyone in Aussie adland knows as Patts. George Patterson Y&R.

75 years in business is a long time. But 75 years in the ad business is a seriously long time. Especially in Australia.

It makes Patts older than US agencies like Ogilvy and DDB.

To celebrate their anniversary the team at Patts have put their Top 20 ads on YouTube.

If you grew up in Australia you're sure to recognise many of them. It's a brilliant body of work.

The 'Memories' ad above is a certified classic and was the first Aussie ad to win a Grand Prix at Cannes.

Here's a couple more of my personal favorites.
