Barry Manilow at CLIO AwardsThe 50th Anniversary CLIO Awards were held this week in Las Vegas and Barry Manilow received an Honorary CLIO Award for his production of some of the most famous advertising jingles of all time (Photo: © Erik Kabik/ RETNA/ www.erikkabik.com).   Manilow also performed a live onstage medley of his 1970s advertising jingles including State Farm, Band-Aid, Tab and Stridex.

Charles Edward Greene, known as “Mean Joe” Greene, a former all-pro American football defensive tackle who played for the Pittsburgh Steelers, received a special CLIO statue for his appearance in the famous 1979 Coca-Cola commercial, “Early Showers.” The commercial featured a kid (Tommy Okon) giving the injured Greene a Coke after he had to depart the game, prompting him to smile and give the kid his team jersey.

Festival attendees also had the chance to meet their favorite advertising icons such as: Nestle’s “Nesquik Bunny”, StarKist’s “Charlie the Tuna”, 9Lives’ “Morris the Cat”, Kraft’s “Kool-Aid Man” and the “Michelin Man” who graced the CLIO Ad Icon Walk of Fame red carpet and told the story of their legendary brand icons.

The Moving Image Awards were held at The New Joint and the Design Awards were held at AGO, the legendary Vegas eatery owned by Hollywood icon Robert De Niro and restaurateur Agostino Sciandri, in the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, Las Vegas on May 14.
