So what?
What does this headline tell me about the product?
C'mon people, work harder!

The idea is almost non-existing here, so there's nothing to talk about.
However, I really appreciate the photography. It combines attention to industrial details with landscape painting.

...because you were buried next to the railroad tracks. FAIL.

Is this an ad for a gravel company? Railroad ties?

...because if you took a plane you'd have been there two days ago.

i think, the ad is working on the psychographic profile of the TG, i.e. the people longing for the old day rustic/pastoral elegance, county life, no hurry days. To me, the communication's brilliant.

Some of you people sound like horrible clients.

The "show me the product" or "work harder, people" comment cliche is so tiresome. To those who commented with those sentiments here, maybe it's time for you to work harder and realize that modern advertising has far more complex challenges than the old P&G rule books let on.

This is a brilliant ad, beautifully executed - it appeals to an emotional benefit and evokes the romanticism of seeing loved ones by train, a pre-emption of more nerve-wracking options like airports and traffic jams.

I agree 100%. This is a good ad, despite the moaners.
