Sorry guys, but these are awful. Art director should really work hard on his skills...

Yea, there is something wrong in the way the body and the water blend together.

I like these. IMO the art direction is supposed to be a bit rough in order to get this home camera effect. The idea is that the guy fished a huge pack of whiskas and got taken in picture to show off to his friends. It wouldn't have worked if it was a professional shoot, it has to look a bit amateurish to make it real. so this works for me.

I agree with Stigset, these ads are meant to look amateur. When you catch a fish you don't have a pro photographer along with you. These ads are great.

I agree with you but that's not what's bad about these. Look at the whiskas pack and the hands. Looks really fake.

...and what's more, the ocean is way too dark considering it's sunny. See? It's taken from another picture and it's quite visible...

the execution is the least of the problems with this ad.

It's a cat food ad. I've seen a ton of crappy cat food ads. With a bunch of stupid cats. I got this one immediately. It's not gonna win any awards. But it's for cat food. And I got the fact that this bag of vittles taste like fish. So nice job, guys. I'm sure the brief sucked. But you came up a with a new way to showcase the product and still communicate the benefit. And you did it without showing any stupid cats.

Don't like the ad. Such an overpromising. There's not much fish in cat food.

ECD: so what! I'm boss!
AD/CW: Yes, boss! (be careful you ball)

CD/AD/CW, 4A's, agencies & photographer, take notes on this case!

I have to say that this doesn't now even have THE slightest impact. It is simply too simple for an ECD to come up with this. It's pathetic. No wonder everyone is leaving or already left TBWA, so I've heard.
