I like these. Japanese art-ish.

If I did them there would be more colour in there. Don't know if thats a good thing or not.

Thanks, that explains a lot ... and why do you think, apes were rebirthed as bombs?

i thought first that he did not get the visual but i was wrong.

>and why do you think, apes were rebirthed as bombs?

indeed the copy is not working well, they had posted it in the forum section one day ago or so
with a copy that went in the direction of "the last wish of a lab animal" which made more sense

agree, It's not true, they won't fight back, I think the copy is a bit lame

i like them. the "bombs" thing means nothing, however. but i like the idea that the monkeys will come out from the darkness and kill us all for treating the world as a garbage dump. i'm tired of shots of severed animal parts and deforested rain forest. why not a light approach?

Yeah, right. Apes will fight back like all the other animals that humans already exterminated.

Well. Me too. The line is typical JvM again - Bildzeitung-Style. Do you guys know Bildzeitung? It's comparable to the british "sun".
But the illustration here is quite ok I think.

"bild" may be rubbish as a source of information, but the headlines are the high art of copywriting, inventing new terms and reducing complex interrelations to a minimum of words.

Bild Zeitung is rubbish alltogether full stop. There is no high art of copywriting whatsoever. The only thing reduced is the content to match minimum brain readers.

Thank you very much. It encourages me, to know that there are intelligibly thinking people out there.
But: "Minimum Brain Readers" doesn't cut it for me. A friend of mine once compared the "Bildzeitung" with a quick snack, while the "Zeit" or "FAZ" or any other higher value more demanding newspaper would be something like the main course ^^

ask any good copywriter in germany, he'll tell you.
believe it or not, the guys who write these 'stupid' headlines know exactly what they are doing.
again, i'm not talking about bild's quality as a newspaper.
but sometimes it's easier to boo at something as a whole than to differ what's good and what's bad.

oh, and about your friend's comparison: he's certainly a very clever guy. but this does in no way refer to what i was writing.
i was rating bild's headlines from the advertising POV. and in advertising it's elementary to make it short. usually people don't want to waste their time construeing ads, they prefer the quick snack.

Ok guy, listen. I still claim that JvM is one of the worlds worst agencies. And - in perfect harmony with that statement - I also agree, that they know exactly what they are doing. They are surely among the most professional advertisers. Nothing to discuss there.

What I am trying to say is that they are bad for the world and bad for the image of the advertising branch, not bad in their profession.

I hope you can understand me now.

visualy very nice but i thing the idea is not as good.
it is the 'blidzeitung' effect without enough of 'zeit' in it.
therefor i agre also with doberman.

Monkeys/Gorillaz/Apes/whatever can't fight back. The concept would be emotional if it said just that - helpless. This way - it isn't.
