Smart! I'd never heard of these other two guys -- a Chechnyan rebel leader and a Guinean Presidential candidate -- until just now. (Googled them.) It is sort of eye-opening that there's more top-of-mind recognition with a reference to a 30 year-old television series than to a couple political assassinations that took place only a few months ago. However, without the chance to look up who these people are, I'm not sure I'd remember the ad later. Certainly wouldn't remember how to spell those names. But if I'd been reading the world news and recognized one or the other, it would make a powerful statement.

it's ok. not as strong as some of their earlier work. you don't need 2 obscure names. 1 would have made the point just as well, if not better.

full of what? accurate feedback? if it's your work, you need to grow thicker skin. if not, you need to get a life.

This board appeared in the city of Dallas. I think it's safe to say that people who live in Dallas are familiar with the show.

Very hard to do a good economist ad. So many top top class pieces have already been done.
