I can see the rock and roll, but i can't see Advertising. The concept is good, but is first idea.
Lo que intento decir es, Puedo ver el Rock&Roll pero no la publicidad, quizás hubiese mostrado como aplica ese "Rock&Roll" a la hora de hacer publicidad, quizás a la hora de presentarle al cliente una campaña, cómo lo haría esta agencia, digamos, por un lado la forma convencional y por el otro la forma dojo115, como se comportarían a la hora de pensar, quizás algo extremo, no sé. El concepto me gusta, pero la idea es básica. Esta es mi humilde opinión. (I don't know how tell this in english)

So, lets pretend (for argument's sake) that you are an marketing director or exec in some fictitious company. And you are shopping for an agency. Budgets are cut in half, and there's war on the market. Since 2008 the shit is serious... And you expect this exec to say: "Yes, I will trust my hard earned ad money to this guys! They sure know what advertising is. They will spent it wisely and be careful with every cent!".
Wake up. This aren't the nineties.There's no more r'n'r in advertising, those times are over... forever.
Oh, and btw: nobody cares about awards. Not any more...

Did that and it didn't help. Oh, and Epica, too.
Only people who care about advertising awards are advertisers, not clients. Trust me on this one.
