making elvis into a mosquito to relate to the 60's doesn't make any sense

Doesn't look anything like Elvis. What is the link between him and mosquitoes? Except being anti-Elvis, this ad doesn't make any sense at all.

No one cares about child labor, eye donation or saving the Earth: NO PSA!!!

What's not to understand? The Autan is being sold since 1958. It repelled mosquitoes in the 60's (Elvis) and in the 80's (George Michel). Great ads!

You probably work for the agency that did the campaign? Now that you explained it, it does seem interesting. However, you can't expect all consumers to get it. It is indeed a tad confusing at first. That said, Elvis wasn't famous just in the 60's. Same argument goes for George Michael (he was also famous in the 90's). Also, he wore that police uniform in a video that was done in the 90's.

Maybe you should have created a third image, showing a person who's famous or huge today. After all, this product is still selling. Maybe Lady Gaga mosquito? Just kidding!

sorry, its still very hard to get. no, almost impossible. why do mosquitos have elvis's face? because they are sucking his blood, get his DNA and have his face?? this is really confusing.
