This is nice - but you can't tell me for one second this ran anywhere. The cost of this intricate manual insertion would make this idea impractical to even the most liberal of clients.

The other giveaway is it is in English, which is not widely spoken in Vietnam. Target market: award juries. Possibly a small run in an 'expat' magazine, always a favourite place to run a scam.

No importa que la idea sea cara. Si la empresa tiene los medios para pagarla, bienvenida sea!
Es bueno para los publicistas latinoamericanos, acostumbrados a magros presupuestos, ver lo que hacen anunciantes con mucha plata. Sueña en grande!

There's lots of cheap labour in Vietnam. Could be done.

Just maybe not ethically.

This is genius.

i like the jealous comments. why don't you just critic the idea and hope that you can come up with something like this one day.

oh plllease. You're speaking to me without knowing what awards I've won. I think up things like this from time to time but then resolve myself to the fact that I'm no long a junior and this is scam work at its very best (or worst). Then what I do is I get on with my actual job - which is trying to do good ads on real briefs with actual budgets behind them, and try and win awards off them. Maybe you should do the same.

Nice idea. Poss scam, but perhaps this could be done if the whole dps was supplied and then stitched in. Hmmm...
