Seems like there'd be better ways of getting the message across. So there's a guy hiding in a trash can...what does that tell me about dinosaurs?

It tells you that dinosaurs are alive. And it's scary. And you should hide in a trash can. And probably go spend your money at this zoo. Or is that not completely freakin' obvious?

So someone decided that the best way to spread the message that "Dinosaurs Alive" is scary is to show a guy hiding in a trash can? Seems like this could be done for anything "scary". It's a weak idea. The next big horror movie is scary = guy hiding in trash can. The Scary Halloween Store is opening up = guy in trash can.

It's like they had this graphic laying around the office and randomly decided to force it into this messaging.

Totally agree, the guy its not even looking up to imply (at least) big size (dinosaurs)! Maybe a t-rex shadow over his face or something a much stronger link is missing!

Are you kidding? Dinosaurs. Big. Scary. In your city. Guy hiding in bin.

Oh there's something missing, but it's not a link.

yeah but they are not showing big! this guy could have been hiding from a rabid dog for all that i care! How about a big shadow over his face with sharp teeth and all?! And maybe some looking up!
