Vaughn WHELAN, Advertising Executive: 1960-2005
Brilliant copywriter who combined a wicked sense of humour with bold new marketing strategies launched an audacious ad agency famous for airing an unauthorized Molson commercial, writes Sandra MARTIN
By Sandra MARTIN, Friday, March 11, 2005 Page S7
A creative renegade with an irreverent sense of humour, Vaughn WHELAN was a talented copywriter who loved devising controversial advertising campaigns that grabbed headlines for his clients. His innovative and aggressive approach earned him both awards and barbs, with some advertising veterans applauding his daring and others decrying his notoriety.
"It's a big loss to advertising," said his friend Simon BILLINGS of the Naked Creative Consultancy. "His company [Vaughn Whelan & Partners] wasn't big, but it was a presence. He was always thinking, always trying to find better ways to do things and always trying to shake the larger agencies out of their torpor."
"He did shake things up, but it always seemed to be for his reasons, as opposed to his clients," said Dick HADDEN, president and creative director of Cossette Communication Group West in Vancouver. "There is a certain style of humour or audacity that some people aspire to in advertising that is more a reflection of the writer than the client. For certain clients, that is a good thing, but the number of those clients is fewer than more traditional ones and it doesn't always fall in line with what most larger clients see as a brand-building approach."
Vaughn WHELAN was born in Newfoundland in 1960. His father died in a car accident when he and his younger brother, Gerard, were very small. Eventually, his widowed mother, Maudie, married John WHELAN and the family moved to Kelowna, B.C.
A short, heavyset man who loved film and music, he was reputed to have written lyrics for the Vancouver rock band Loverboy. He could have a tough bristly manner, but people who knew him well said that was armour to camouflage a sensitive and caring nature.
Mr. WHELAN began his advertising career in Vancouver before moving to Toronto in the 1980s. "He was a spark plug, a little undisciplined in his thinking, but incredibly energetic and enthusiastic," said Mr. HADDEN, who hired him as a junior copywriter at McCann Erickson in Vancouver in the mid-1980s. "He was trying to do things very differently and he aspired to great heights, which is the sort of thing you look for at that level."
Less than two years later, Mr. WHELAN moved to Toronto, where he was hired as a copywriter by Scali, McCabe and Sloves. Geoffrey ROCHE, now creative director of Lowe Roche, was working at the agency when Mr. WHELAN arrived. "I thought this guy was a ball of fire. He loved what he did and he crafted the stuff as well as he could."
Scali is also where Brian SEMKULEY met him -- as a client rather than a colleague. He remembers Mr. WHELAN being part of the creative team that pitched the campaign for Labatt Blue.
"He had a unique way of looking at a communication problem and coming up with technical and strategic solutions," said Mr. SEMKULEY, who is now global marketing director for the beer conglomerate InBev. The two men became Friends after Mr. WHELAN won the advertising account in the early 1990s for Blue Star, a Labatt brand that was only available in Newfoundland. There wasn't a large advertising budget, so Mr. WHELAN advised Labatt to forget television and do a radio campaign, instead. Then he "sat down and pumped out 40 or so radio scripts," said Mr. SEMKULEY, with the tagline "Blue Star: The Shining Star of the Granite Planet."
"It was absolutely the right decision," said Mr. SEMKULEY. " Vaughn was one of the best radio writers I have ever worked with and probably one of the best radio writers in the country." The campaign doubled the beer's regional market share by promoting its Newfoundland identity and by running a contest offering a summer job with the brewery. "Originally, first prize was going to be 10 weeks of work and second prize would be 20 weeks," Mr. WHELAN told The Globe in 1992. That was too ironic for Labatt, which changed second prize to a case of Blue Star every week for a year.
With unemployment in Newfoundland running at 21 per cent compared to a national average of 11 per cent, Mr. WHELAN's humour offended Winston BAKER, then the chair of the provincial Treasury Board. "He may have been born here," he said of Mr. WHELAN, "but he's obviously forgotten what it's like to live here."
Saying the contest was "totally disgusting," Mr. BAKER complained that "they were poking fun at a very serious situation and we told them we wanted it stopped immediately." The beer company agreed to change the first prize to a postsecondary scholarship for $7,000, the value of the employment contract. Despite the political opposition, the Blue Star campaign eventually won Mr. WHELAN a Cassie award for advertising effectiveness.
"He was an unsung hero of our business because he wrote some of the best work that this country has ever seen," said Mr. ROCHE. "If you can write radio, you can write anything and, believe me, he could write like a mad demon."
In many ways, he was too much of a maverick to work in a traditional agency, Mr. ROCHE suggested. "That is probably why he went out on his own." The risk of going out on your own, however, is not being able to create enough business to keep your staff working.
On that score, he appeared to be succeeding. As president and creative director of Vaughn Whelan and Partners, his long-term clients included Radio Shack and Leon's Furniture. For Radio Shack, he had broadcaster Ralph Benmergui joking with nerdy Radio Shack managers across the country. For Leon's, he created a series of television spots showing upscale customers getting Leon's furniture dropped off at night in a ploy to hide the fact that they shopped at a discount store, only to see their truck stuck in a traffic jam with other Leon's vehicles delivering to their neighbours.
Mr. WHELAN's most recent controversy involved two unsolicited television ads that he created and aired for the Molson Canadian brand. He wasn't a big enough agency to be in the serious running for the Molson account last October, so he got the beer company's attention (and everybody else's) by shooting a commercial and running it on television without the brewer's approval. The 60-second commercial showed a bike courier persuading the Canada Revenue Agency to let him classify his daily food as "fuel" and deduct it as an expense on his income tax. The spot ended with the line: "Respect. It's a Canadian thing."
There's nothing unusual about producing an advertisement on spec, but nobody had ever bought the air time to broadcast it. After the commercial aired in Toronto and Burlington, Vermont., Molson sent Mr. WHELAN a frosty lawyer's letter. He didn't get Molson's business, but the press netted lots of attention.
Mr. SEMKULEY, who works for Beck's, one of Molson's rivals, said: "I give him a ton of credit for taking the personal and financial risk of trying to put his name forward as being the best option for the client to choose. I would have looked at his agency differently."
"It was spectacular," said Mr. ROCHE. "A lot of the people in the industry dismissed it, but that epitomized the kind of guy he was. He had balls and I had great respect for him."
Mr. BILLINGS said: "That was a classic Vaughn stunt -- something right out of the box that would generate good and bad press and get you noticed. He certainly got a lot of calls from other companies who wanted to talk to him."
All of that is for naught now. Vaughn Whelan and Partners is folding. "The creative component of the agency was Vaughn and there really isn't a company without him," said Mr. BILLINGS.
Vaughn WHELAN was born in Saint John's on April 3, 1960. He died at Sunnybrook Hospital in Toronto on March 3, 2005, from complications from chronic anemia. He was 44. He is survived by his wife, Eileen STEWARD/STEWART/STUART; his mother, Maudie WHELAN; one brother; and four half-brothers.

YOUNG, Athena (MANAX)
In loving memory of a Dear Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Great-grandmother and Sister, Athena (MANAX,) who went to be with her Lord one year ago today, March 8, 2004.
God saw you getting tired
When a cure was not to be
So He closed His arms around you
And whispered "Come to me"
You do not deserve what you went through
And so He gave yourest.
God's garden must be beautiful
For He only takes the best,
In time we saw you sinking
We watched you fade away.
Our hearts were almost broken.
You fought so hard to stay.
But when we saw you sleeping
So peacefully from pain,
We could not wish you back
To suffer that again.
If you had spoken before you died
These are the words you'd have replied
"Weep not for me but courage take
And love one another for my sake."
Sadly missed by Bill, her husband of 60 years, daughters Athena (BILYEA,) Mary-Anne (HALL) and families.

PALIJENKO, Anne
Suddenly but peacefully at Mount Sinai Hospital, Toronto on Friday evening November 18, 2005.
Beloved wife of the late Basil PALIJENKO, loving mother of the late Nicholas PALIJENKO, the late Marianne PALIJENKO and of Peter PALIJENKO. Dear mother-in-law of Andrea MOZAROWSKI. She will be sadly missed by her sister Lesya PAVLENKO, her brother-in-law Paul PALIYENKO, her sister-in-law Leslie PALIYENKO, her cousin Halya BILYK and their families.
Born in Novostavcy, Ukraine January 14, 1929, she survived horrific wartime events of the Nazi and Soviet armies and a series of losses of immediate family members starting with her mother when Anne was a child of 11. In facing these hardships she found a courage -- both awesome and resourceful -- which forged in her a peerless character and stamina.
Together with her younger sister, she immigrated to Canada to build a life and family here. Her love of learning and innate curiosity became the foundation for an accomplished career as a medical librarian at Princess Margaret Hospital in Toronto. She discovered a love of opera and attended performances with the Canadian Opera Company's inception. The tragic events of her early years pained and haunted her so deeply, but her suffering forged a deep compassion and a strong desire to be loving and tender to others. Her relatives and Friends were the benefactors of her generosity and will fondly remember Anne as a warm, exuberant, giving individual.
The family expresses its gratitude to the staff at Fellowship Towers for the kindness and care which gave Anne support and strength in her later years.
"Here we will moor our lonely ship
And wander ever with woven hands,
Murmuring softly lip to lip,
Along the grass, along the sands,
Murmuring how far away are the
unquiet lands...
The heavy boughs, the burnished dove
That moans and sighs a hundred days:
How when we die our shades will rove,
When eve has hushed the feathered ways,
With vapoury footsole by the water's drowsy blaze.' (W.B. Yeats)
