I like it very much. It has astonishing look and quite nice, maybe not mind-blowing, yet witty idea. We're living in the times of illustration renaissance. It could be boring, but in this case it works perfectly with marine climate.

According to Bob Garfield, this sucks.

Therefore, I love it.

(Plus, it's really good.)

Hi, Stuart, you magnificent bastard.

i'm surprised he didn't condemn it as offensive to marine life. i like it too.

in the event of a water landing, the lobstro will call intermission two hours into the performance.

Garfield... well, when 'Just do it' slogan was first presented he said it's nothing special and that it wouldn't make a significant impact.

Very much a work of ART.
I like it, but without the VO at the end making sense of it all it would simply remain ART.
But I do like it. Really.

Saw it during the Beijing Olympics. Love the art and execution. Actually, the ads I liked most during the Olympics were the United Airlines and GE commercials.

Cool art, can't say the same for the idea though.

Bath yourself in gold-dust then i'll believe you're filthy rich.

This execution is unbelievable. I love seeing where illustration is going... much more sophisticated. I was so captivated I didn't even care what they were advertising. However, I think the copy brings it back to the product. Very campaignable. However, a little amusing. Is life more exciting outside of American Airlines?! Of course, it is.
