If Don Draper were alive, the fictional hero of "Mad Men" would be in Cannes this week for the annual Cannes Lions Festival. This is the world's largest party (ahem…"festival") for the advertising industry . So what if the European Union is teetering on the verge of collapse- "faisons la fete" everybody…Let's Party!! Explosive growth in emerging markets and digital, not to mention the surprisingly robust US ad advertising market (+3.1% last year with 2.2% growth forecast for 2012- Magna Global) means that creative talent is scarce. Slowly, Creative Directors at Israeli agencies have begun to win global prizes and enhance the collective reputation of the local industry. Now the major conglomerates, WPP, Publicis, Omnicom and IPG, are looking to Israel for creative hires. For example, this week Publicis Groupe acquired Israeli advertising and communications firm BBR. Care for hummus and shakshuka, Mr. Draper? Below are some great recent creative executions from Israel, courtesy of Meirav Oz.

For all the fuss last year about the current round of musical chairs among CBS’ late night talk shows – Ferguson is gone, Letterman is leaving, Corden is on deck, Colbert is coming – surprisingly little attention is being paid to something the network is doing right now … keeping “The Late Late Show” alive during the approximately three month gap between Craig Ferguson’s departure and James Corden’s arrival (on March 23) with special guest hosts typically sitting in for two or three days each. This week has featured a two-night stint by Regis Philbin, a man with more experience hosting talk shows than most, and another (concluding tonight) by actress and comedienne Whitney Cummings.
