Agreed. Let's bring that average down. There's nothing to this series.

That's it.

Looking at this campaign was an exercise in confusion.

It's not great, but it's not confusing for me. Young = baby bottle, Lions = meat. Simple.

Thanks for your rebuttal.

For the record, the confusion lies in figuring out that the meat communicates food for lions, which is not as obvious as you think, particularly if the carnivore is tucked away in the upper right-hand corner. Many viewers here will try and figure out the main visual – coming up with ambiguous notions – before they realize that the logotype sums up the idea.

Garcia+Robles's little campaign is clever -- too clever, as it turns out.

guys what i get is..the lions are young so they are feeding meat(that's what lions eat) in a way we feed babies...
young lions=young human lions..
i see people panning this campaign but i find it as a ok campaign...

Maybe I shouldn't pan it. It's clean and simple and that's usually perfectly ok. But I would expect them to push a little more than they did here. It feels like a swipe or a parody of a classic print ad of the late 1950s/early 1960s to me, and I don't think they were aiming for anything retro. --Thus it seems (sorry) lazy, as if they checked in and didn't try very hard.

That's it.

nice concept but execution doesn't work, meet could be in a teething ring for example not in a baby bottle.

Everybody is creative, be yourself.

What they translated into a visual is the popular "saying" about young people in advertising who are keen on winning awards: They are "young and hungry".
