Traveling fruits? Priscilla, Queen of the desert? The plural of fruit is fruit.

I agree. But what does pubic hair have to do with fruits?

I like the campaign, just not sure about the cause.

Eating local fruit will not lessen air pollution levels for fuck's sake.

Do they think this will happen?

Consumer sees ads, decides to never buy bananas from overseas again, eventually demand for foreign bananas drops, shopkeeper/supermarket tells supplier 'sorry, no more - your product just isn't selling', supplier loses contract, truck stops taking bananas to store, air pollution levels decrease, McCanns Germany wins award for effectiveness. Hmmmmmmm.

C'mon.

how about exporting automobiles, chemicals and industrial goods? how can you export them to peripheral countries if you don't buy agricultural goods from them?

Best of the bunch. No pun intended. but the Art direction could have been handled a little better. Specifically the photoshopping of the banana.

Great ad campaign

the picture has been done well, but I don't like the idea! In instance, if I'd like to buy bananas, if I'd need them (or any other import products) I'll do it & I won't think that they're cause of pollution!

Quite like it, but I don't see why to use pubic hair handwriting...
