I don't understand this ad. Is this selling LG phones or a public message?

Totally agree. It's some sort of weird piggy back onto a fake 'cause' that ends up not selling phones.

Well, if you's not about selling cellphones at all, not even close. It's a social awareness campaign about cyber bullying that actually happens to teens.

If that's the case, then this missed the mark. Cyber bullying is a pretty important cause, but this campaign's cleverness gets in the way of that message. Not saying it has to be a "serious" execution, but these spots really are too in love with themselves to be effective. IMHO.

It's good to see Y&R actually get something out the door, though ;)

I love it's message and how it was said.
I dont think this is suppose to sell phones. Just an AD to add fragrance to LG, being morally concerned and all that
