I'd rather the bottles be a flat graphic that i could roll a shopping cart over. also, if the other end of the aisle doesn't look like the end where you'd release the ball, then it should.

I agree with sneaky.
And then I would have liked to see a real bowling ball packed in the refrigerator display at the end of the aisle. ;)
But in any case it's a nice idea.

Las botellas difitultan el paso así que las patearía.

The bottles would make me hard to go through, so I would kick them.

OHS issue! All it takes is one person to not notice them and slip over... Not to mention it just plain gets in the way.

Cute idea, but not terribly practical.

I like the idea of the flat image. You could even make it one of those ones that looks like it's 3D from the other end of the aisle (but ends up being three metres long). That'd be much cooler and practical than "some idiot came by and put bottles in my way".

And what happens when a customer mistakenly puts the bottles back on the shelf? Lol
Lame ass idea!

nice idea, but very very bad execution...

First of all the prospective for "Saudi Bowling competition" is sooooo wrong... it is actually tilting right words. Then for bottles the had to print them following the same prospective as floor sticker not putting them like this on floor, its so disturbing. Lastly they should have used the background to look like part of bowling alley...
