I was looking for an explanation in the billboard why they used gold and diamants, both dealing with luxury, jewelry... I found it in the explanation underneath the ad, that's ashame. Why not mention 'Treasure! exhibit' on the billboard? Would make a lot more sense (and make you earn an extra star ;)

Did you know that all of the gold that has ever been mined across the world could only just fill a single olympic sized swimming pool?

Did you know that if you put together all of the gold that had ever been mined by mankind you would still only just have enough to fill an olympic sized swimming pool?

It's a nice extension of the campaign and great execution, but if it's promoting an exhibit, why wouldn't you say so somewhere other than the awards description?

This should be quite pretty to look at.
