Is this student work? The image isn't very well set up or well shot let alone cleaned up at all.

Those are Indian numbers. They are in use in Middle Eastern countries.

Not all Economist ads are clever.

That should be an ad.

Unfortunately the line doesn't work as substance is a very inaccurate description of the Economist. Nothing worse than a clever line that isn't clever. You could say "Consume some mind expanding substance" which is more accurate but then perhaps too abstract.

hey ivan - that is a terrible pic :)

However, before anyone rips apart the headline you may want to know that this first appeared as a poster many, many, many years ago. And back then, it was very much on strategy.

They also did the "Hello to all readers in high office" bus ad and the "Plankton, Game Show host, Economist Reader"poster.

line was used on an ad perhaps even before that.
an ad for a limited edition fragrance:

just a white background with the fragrance bottle in the middle, underneath it reads:
"$300 DOLLARS AN OUNCE.
MIND ALTERING.
LEGAL."

by Curt Detweiler. Steamhouse Advertising/Singapore.

I couldnt find it online, but it's in the Advertising One Show book. Volume 18.
