This one's not easy to get unless you know the terms "bull market" and "bear market" (financial terms). Love it; whoever came up with the idea is a genius.

Thanks for this comment, buddy. I was going through this campaign with the fear that I wouldn't get it at the end... Now, I have no clue what "bull and bear market" are, but thanks to you, I know they exist. =)

You made me laugh. :-)

Bull market means confidence, optimism (especially in anticipation of future capital gains); Bear market, on the other hand, means transition from high optimism to widespread (investor) fear, pessimism, etc.

I think the copy here supports the idea that Bull beats Bear. It mentions (inherent) opportunities. I associate opportunities with optimism. This is my take on the campaign.

Uhm, I think it's pretty safe to assume that the target audience does know the terms. And the people who don't? Well, maybe they're not as interesting to the client.
