Tennis: Wooden courts to encourage fairer contests

PETER YORK ON ADS No 291: GAP

The Benetton equation - "shocking" ads, boring product - holds good with Gap, too. Only the Gap commercials are smart and charming rather than shocking, and all the more insidious for that. The recent Gap series, the dancing ones - Sixties go-go etc - and the singing ones, are all really good in their bland way. They recycle other people's ideas, aesthetics and music in good-taste, high-production-value, high-concept ways. And in very much a photographer's studio; white-out, tasteful settings, with no problematic class or tribal-specific detailing. It's all done with a strong stylist's editorial eye (rather as Ralph Lauren gained hugely from Ann Boyd's taste).
