You Saw The Academy Awards, Now See Who Won BI's Oscars For Ads

Flo Progressive Adscar

Embracing the Oscar buzz, Business Insider Advertising wanted to get in on the award show action last week and asked readers to vote for the commercials and spokespeople they deemed worthy of receiving a 2012 Adscar.

Pitting Flo against the T-Mobile Girl and Chrysler against VW, the races were close. (Well, except for poor William Shatner who not only got killed off by Priceline.com this year, but also received no votes for best advertising spokesman).

Best Spokesman goes to... The Most Interesting Man in the World.

Readers showed no love for William Shatner's Priceline Negotiator:

Best Spokeswoman: Flo, Progressive

Sorry T-Mobile Girl:

Best Spokesanimal: The Geico Gecko

The Geico Gecko left other spokesanimals in the dust:

Best Celebrity Endorsement: Will Ferrell, Old Milwaukee Beer
