I presume the idea is:

- It looks like a regular commodity price chart, in this case the price of gold.
- The price of gold goes up during the One Show Festival.
- This is because gold "supply" is limited due to all the gold awards being given out (notably to BBDO) during the One Show period.

Is this a good ad? Not in my humble opinion.

Look! Pencils!!

Don't get it?!? That's ok, here're some arrows.

Still kinda vague?!? S'ok, here're some little headlines on the arrows.

STILL lost?!? No worries, we put a fancy headline about the price of gold.

TA DA! An ad for one of the biggest shows of the year to honour creative communication.

Goooooooooooooooooooooooooo Excel Vista.
