you were probably involved in producing this blight.

Bathe yourself in gold-dust then i'll believe you're filthy rich.

Yeh pretty sound,
Not sure how this is executed though, I think you would have to pay the stall sellers a chunk of dosh because this makes the product they are selling far less enjoyable to consume. All in all I haven't seen this before and it's rather powerful.

I like it. I agree it is strong. Maybe a little dated but strong.

very cool thinking. if i were one of those food stalls, however, i'd probably use the lids that didn't tell my customers to go somewhere else.

What? I'm sorry but this is weak weak weak.
Suck on an exhaust? And then what? Oh, now I feel so bad about my carbon emissions I might just walk to work. whatever.

Agreed. This is a one-stop message that's preaching to the choir.

SO Bloody What! A good ad tells you something. A great ad tells you something you didn't know about the product/service. Where's the reward for the consumer. Sorry, but this is a first idea

What about the product they drinking from the cup ? ... they have nothing to do with this "bad concept".

I like it, but it smells like scam.
I think they only produced 1 cup and took 4 pictures of it with different people.

Where is the call to action? I get the cup and drink the "exhaust", now what? Am I supposed to drive less? Should I recycle the cup? The concept is clever, but it needs more refining to be effective. Also, not the best visual for me as I am attempting to enjoy my beverage.

Yeah, this is just okay to me.

It's very powerful. Although this lid will make the drink less appealing, every time I take a sip of a drink, I can imagine catching a glance of the lid and think twice about my actions. That grey colour is making me lose my appetite already!

this is very true and a very good example. often this kind of ad though is strong, but weak in the call for action. apply to most of the public awareness ads.
