Clever - it made me laugh. I think it's a creative ad for a branding company.

If done, even better. The whole point is "can you do better?"

copying the same idea is never better. coming up with a different idea that's better is better.

May I ?

The cropping, at left, at best, is dreadful.
The idea, as theft, is awful, somewhere along the lines of out-of-touch Man Upstairs' outburst like this:

"You people don't have a fucking clue. I want you to see some fucking mirrors. Make me an idea,
something that makes idiots reinforce my ego with Capital Letters."

"You creatives are E I G H T I E S , hear? potato thinkers; there! *There*'s your idea. Now:

make my business a success or you're .... what do you MEAN you RESIGN?

Have to apologise for that outburst above. I think I was trying to channel a CD or twelve. Pardon me if I leave this here to look back on in the months to come, decorated with the counterpoints for this series. >leaves<

It's a contest for people who suffer from potato-head syndrome.

YES - we all can do better.

I don't find any fresh idea, or spark of brilliancy, nor any unique concept, or creativity at all.

I went to their site http://wyseadvertising.com/ and there was nothing impressive there either.

Maybe it is their own internal contest for inspiration that Ivan got a hold of. (maybe they need to drink more coffee to perk up)

I think the concept is boring but the execution saves the day.
