There's just one week left to get your work in to this year's competition, so start your path to immortality today by submitting here. Kate Oh, chief creative officer and executive creative director of Cheil, is next up.


Volkswagen 'Welcome to The Family' (2005)





No doubt, if I were to mention one of my life's immortal ads, I would choose Volkswagen's 'Welcome to the  Family' without hesitation.  

This old classic commercial kept me dreaming of the warmth and happiness of advertising, whenever I was tired and wanted to quit this job!

Carpenters' sweet voice whispered, 'Why do birds suddenly appear? Every time you are near?'

Oh, I feel happy when a smile is built around my mouth. Yeah, it's a happy thing to be an adman.
