Why do we care? Well, this was comical - & a good point - a bad ad is a bad ad, no matter who fronts it.... "Right at the bottom we found individual adverts featuring Lance Armstrong (minus 28 per cent) and Tiger Woods (minus 30 per cent).... Does Armstrong’s low score in the Ace Metrix survey suggest that Landis’s handful of mud has stuck? Perhaps. But is it not equally possible that this was just a bad piece of advertising?" And it did surprise me that the best result was only deemed "to have lifted the value of a campaign by a measly 1.5 per cent" - although if I were in the market for a satnav, I'd definitely buy Garmin, etc, cos i love that they sponsor the team, but I haven't been tempted to buy Bran Flakes cos of Chris Hoy....

funny stuff, makes me like Cavendish even more ;)
Anybody can be a critic, but it takes real guts to offer a solution. Hans was up to the challenge.
