The art-direction feels a little disjointed to me. I would have like to see only one photo.

Yep. Right on, K-Rocka. Or, at least, if they really wanted to use 2 photos, they could have done it differently...

Yeah, I thought it was an ambient with a reveal. But then again, I am dumb.

Nice and admirable attempt at recreating what's been coming out of those Minneapolis shops for years...
But that isn't to say I have a low opinion of this campaign. I think it's right on strategy. Still works just fine. But very formulaic. I think it's a case of "if it ain't broke"...
I once worked on a recreational boating engine ads (in Minneapolis, of course) and we'd have a field day coming up with a bunch of cool and clever lines...
But my favorite boat ad headline still remains: "Is it possible the road to heaven isn't a road at all?" I didn't write it. Someone at Carmichael did. And that someone got very famous.
