Well, I didn't like it. Maybe because I am not Turkish.

Advertiser who won 10 or more lions in the last 10 years.
And I am not the real Juan Cabral, guys. So sorry for that!

Actually he said "One minutes" at his first attempt.. If you'd write "One minutes" and put a red correction line on the "s", this AD would be far better..

As the ad is based on a real moment the prime minister did not really say "one minuteS". your opinion could be nice in that case.
what he exactly said was "one minute" and nothing more, cuz he does not speak english.
the copy says "improve your english" not "correct your english"

As Underdose said, you have to make it clear that she is adding the 'S' to help improve their English. A red underline would have been enough to make this ad 10 times better.

given the background i'll go with 'Underdose' to make the ad 'meaningful'.

Bu adamlar nerden bilsin RTE'nin gafını. Güzel fikir. Ancak Nejat Talas'a hiç gerek yokmuş.
