i love these! ivan, were you not able to get all of them?
this restaurant chain has a fun tongue in cheek kind of atmosphere and these ads really fit the bill.

It's great! And I truly believe that simple thinking is not hard (well not the hardest anyway). What's hard is convincing people that it'll work...

Imagine the countless ideas like this that get thrown out of the window every minute...

You can imagine the rest of the campaign...

Unless Ivan can find them, of course.
