You never flee voluntarily.
Nobody chooses to give up everything, to leave their home to go on a long and dangerous journey in order to seek asylum in a foreign land. That decision has been made for them – by others.

Hmm, I understand what they're trying to say but I'm pretty sure that most people would voluntarily flee from a burning house. The line just seems a bit off to me.

don't like the tag either, but like the line the idea is there -- copy just needs work.

simple. you dont need the headline.

visual is a house made of burnt matces.

the tag needs to be re written to put the visual in context. would be a much better ad.

Thats all. Would be a much better ad.

The ad was likely translated.

i guess it would have made more sense if someone was lighting the house... and the MOM + KID matchsticks were NOT burnt... anyways, the copy is spoiling the neat visual

Nice, but I think it works better as a fire safety advert, that's what I thought it was about originally
