this gave me a chuckle, I'm not even bothering with the others, at least this one is going somewhere with the innuendos

... its already been done...

Dear Mr. Ivan,

Please note that you have got the credits wrong. There is no way in the world Toby Talbot will put his name to garbage like this. Please take a look at his previous works of genius, this I say with not an iota of sarcasm. In case this ad has actually been approved by Mr. Talbot, then below is the letter addressed to his truly.

Dear Mr. Talbot,

I am deeply disappointed. I suggest you put more of an effort into getting someone else BACK into your circle. Unlike your current Deputy Creative Directors, when he steals an idea, he actually makes it look better than the previous one. Again, if you're looking for original ideas, why not look far west towards the Big Apple, I'm sure there's someone there who is Lion enough to help you out. Again.

Sympathetic Regards,

Toby's Well Wisher.

PS. I love innuendos.
PPS. I love anonymity too. Did I get the spelling right this time around? Hint hint;)

That's pretty bitchy dude, even if you've got a problem with Toby this is not really the place for personal attacks.

You sound bitter too, what's wrong - Toby steal your lunch money?

Bad, bad, photoshop (for all the second one). Idea is stolen from Club Med. Fairly horrible stuff.

I also like the Club 18-30 Campaign much more.

But a few words to the "bad" photoshop work:
I think in this case it's a stylistic element. I like it very much, it looks new!

why does everyone rely on the retouching so much, if it was good photography everything should fit into place.
a retoucher can't change the way it is lit.
