they should put some line on this commercial to make people get the real point already... those who dont get on the web-site will not get the message.
anyway, good aproach.

Yeah very strange ad but very good too even if an explanatory line at the end is missing for me.

Very nice though

Not sure that an explanatory line is missing. Not at all, in fact.
If you want to know more, even if it's strange, go to the website.
You'll understand visiting http://www.campokutta.com/.

Child soldiers in developing countries are kidnapped, beaten, raped, drugged, and used as shields. This ad barely skims the surface, except to turn the tables. I get where they wanted to go, but they should have done more than the "hey, what if it happened here" approach. There's way too much left out (even if it is covered on the website very well). The TV ad should drive home the message a lot better. Plus most people who give to non-profits are older, so they're automatic response after seeing a TV ad isn't to head online to figure out what the message is and what they should do. If you're asking for money, you ALWAYS need a call to action. Always. On every piece.

this is not the tv spot, it's the web viral - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xtc1MG9bDrg

the tv spot has the payoff at the end of it.
