Nice thinking, till you start thinking - would ants really carry deadwood?

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

I agree. :) Graphically not very appealing. Fire ants would have been more visible...

Rip-off. Friends of mine came up with an idea just like this to put in their portfolio after AWARD school, did a stint at DDB, left, and now look what's happened. The creatives really should be disappointed in themselves for stealing other people's work.

This is a Beauty! Absolutely Beautiful! It merges between history and the art of advertising... it definitely reflects the sophistication of the conceptualizer or the creative director behind it. GOOD JOB!
