You're both wrong. It says Duck, just like the next ad in the series!

Wow. This is awful.

I realize that foreign ads are generally translated before submitted here, but given that this one is almost completely dependent on knowing English, I'm starting to wonder if this genuine or not. If it *is*, it's pretty sad. But it'll get the views.

In Switzerland almost everyone speaks English.

I gather then that Switzerland now has four languages for commerce? Just trying to figure this out, because when I was in Switzerland a decade ago, the languages were German, French, and Italian, but mostly German. English was rare and certainly didnt merit its own language in a comprehensive ad campaign. It'd be like running an English campaign in Russia, where, yes, people speak English, but would you want to sell your product with it?

Are you bad enough? Is this a rhetorical question to the creatives?

Burn is a kind of Red Bull drink, made by the Coca-Cola company

This is fundamentally a piss-weak watered-down poster version of a campaign for an English alcopop called WKD. Strapline... have you got a WKD side?

The answer? F*ck Off.

If this ever got produced they would have to replace them every other day. Teenagers would be filling in the blanks for them every night.

Am I bad enough for what? Honestly. If it said F... or S... or D... or L... WHAT THE _UCK DOES THAT HAVE to do with the energy drink?

Nice model:

Explicative!!! product!

What was the thinking in this?

stupid. Besides, the drink really sucks. you feel crappy afterwards. I got a bunch of free ones at the cafe I worked at. Redbull is way better. I would say F*** this drink S***s!

edit:ah it's a challenge. Come finish this billboard after drinking this energy drink. wtf. Interactive challenge. Why the hell would you support vandalism as a campaign? Drink us. We support vandals, and you could get caught and get fined, and a police record, but we won't help you out. I REALLY don't like this one.

The tag line for this really bugs me and doesn't seem to have any benefit whatsoever. When i see fire I think FUEL....which is also what people want when they drink an energy drink.

You may want to incorporate that into the tag unless you really think people will start drinking an energy drink to be 1988 Michael Jackson BAD.....JAMON!!!!
