Not a good approach to show the benefit. Would make more sense fpr lomh lasting light-bulbs. Not cool.

Didn't we see this exact same idea for a security company recently.
I recall a front gate with a bricked up door,it feels very familiar.

No, it's not the same idea. The exterior visual here only reminds us of that campaign, but the idea (attempting to be conveyed), is totally different. I hate these ads a lot. (and that's not the liquor talking.) This just goes to show you the fine line between Cannes greatness and lame crap.

And a campaign by Ikea, and a domestic violence, posted recently.

it's air-freshener. supposedly so good that you don't need windows to get a better air.

yeah, pretty lame.

that's the thought behind this?? "You have a beautiful garden, but you don't need WINDOWS anymore cause you can as well SMELL the same if you stick this crap in your socket"?! oh god..

reminded me of the public interest campaign for forced marriages in Switzerland, the visual featured houses without windows.

It`s not often I see an ad and don`t get it. But congrats, you got me!
And thanks to those who explained it. This is too far away from the product. It has NO relevance to an air freshner. When you bricked up windows, the first thing you think is probably something about the view or security? Windows gone missing has no relevance to smell?!?

i thought its a bug repellent.. against mosquitos or somethin. maybe it should be super crappy houses, or some place smelly like a lockerroom, where you definitely would open a door or window.. but then there is airvents for that.. hard.

Nice art direction but the concept is weak. You'll live in darkness with no natural light but at least your air will be fresh?? Strange promise. Don't like these.
