Please explain how it is any of these three things. It is certainly not clear to me. A tear running down a cheek painted with a flag? Ummm... is there an idea? What am i missing?

To my knowledge, the left half of the face leaves higher emotional impact, and so showing it.

Nice job, however.

If you got such a biased and opinionated view on the world around you I suggest you quit advertising.

"What? Sense of your comment not clearing." Try looking first at things that you write as comments my friend. Maybe even double-check?

You guys are so funny.
Actually you reveal an ignorance about the truth in 1989.
No one can represent other nationals to comment on their country.
Just view what the Chinese said.

Do you know what really happened? If you are in the PRC I very much doubt it. The party controls what people know. What truth is. In fact no one knows the death toll. 200? 2,000? The denial / hiding of the facts is rather the point.

Given that, this ad is shit. What's the fucking idea?

And this spate of 'anti-Chinese' ads will stop when China revokes a few ad agency licenses. Which they will. And the multi-nats will buckle like a student under the weight of a tank track. Ad agencies need China. China doesn't need us.

wow the chinese people here are really getting offended...one wants an apology one wants to make ads on Denmark's 19th century activities in retaliation...why don't you relax and let it be?they aren't saying anything about the chinese people just one event...every nation has at least one event it's ashamed of...unless of course you aren't ashamed of Tiananmen Square

China had done the rightthing, as independency and stability are the most important.
The students were just acted too over, and they were utilized by SOME NATIONS.

This is our business, just shut your fucking mouths.
