It's a nice idea. But it really doesn't work - because you can't execute it. after the headline has been washed away the idea's away.

And this happens in less than a minute.

I agree completely. The idea shows good creative thought, but advertising must be seen to be effective. This may be seen by 2 or 3 people before it is washed away or destroyed by feet.
If you could create some sort of media that somehow simulates and maybe even can regenerate this process, that may be more effective. Just a thought though.

the result: a significant increase...ha!
if you can't quantify it, it's dubious.

The creative team is so free, that they can sit there whole day re-doing the headline, to ensure the 'significant increase' of sales. Yeah, right!???! During the economy downturn, can they do some real work please.

Creative, yes. I like the idea, but it's completely impractical to effect a handful of people for the cost. Advertising for advertising's sake.

why not do a metro-lite or adshell at a bus stop, fill it with water and do a sort of ship wrecked thing, where theres a whole bunch of memories that have sunk to the bottom like photos etc etc and then have your memory stick still looking good floating around like a fish?

keep your memories alive, with a waterproof thumb drive.

Strong idea, what works for me is using an unusual medium well, and also relevantly.

Sorry, should have logged in before I posted this...

everything gets washed away, except the sand on the advertising board. The wave wipes out the sandy headline, but not the sand lying on the white poster board thingy.

smells fishy, doesn't it?

How strange. Not one person has as yet been jumping up and down yelling, "Done! Done!". What's the matter boys, losing your touch? Or just silenced by something original?

Skor's picture

Actually, I don't think anyone is jumping up and yelling Done Done cos it's quite an illogical, bad idea that works great on a presentation board...

The kind of thing you do just to put on "Ads of the World" and ding your client another $30,000. Smart.
