nice idea and headline, really bad photoshop work!

the wrinkled women should be visibly on a picture coming out a epson photo printer.

no, it's festival design. it's got nothing to do with "real-world" advertising.

This exact same ad was made by the exact same creative team at the exact same agency with the exact same photograph and execution two years ago. Very weak. Truly disappointing.

"I've never seen something like that before! The same agency tryed to be rewarded in award shows twice with the same campaign (but with a different brand!)... Complete nonsense? The explanation seems to be that Dove never signed off on this ad. So they sold this idea to another client. It could have been OK, but the Dove ad already was distinguished by Luerzer's Archive in 2008... so it's a "ghost ad" and a total recycling of ideas..."

la foto és molt xula. però no s'haurien de poder llegir les frases? diu molt en contra de la definició o qualitat de les imatges impresses amb les fantàstiques impressores EPSON.

You're all wrong.
It has nothing to do with REMAKING old campaings.

What really matters about COMMUNICATION is the hability of making some piece that completely matches to the needs, historycal moment and application.

Don't matter it had been done before.
Don't matter photoshop isn't perfect.
Perhaps, those "mistakes" fits perfectly to the needed.

Don't forget people, Ads are made based in studies and researches, as natural responses to social latencies. Not by Photoshop cutiness, or completely unviewed brand new empty cute works.

Elvis didn't create Rock and Roll. But he sang it the right way, at the right time.

Your last line contradicts everything above it. Don't pretend to be smart, it only makes you look dumb.

@guest. Give me a break, man. We all know it's a recycled work. We all do this. I remember going with a layout to all car importers in the country. First to my client, when they didn't buy it we broke the rules and went to other car importers, even to ordinary dealers. 12 presentations with the same layout! Well it was far to brave to any of them. But when you publish something officially, selling it to the client, you can't get it back;-) unless of course Unilever didn't buy it in the first place and you just published it for yourself. Anyway I'd feel cheated if I were your client, either Unilever or Epson.

They're BOTH fake clients, too.

Jesus. What's going on here? Our industry has become a joke.

Are they? I'm working for Unilever myself and they aren't so keen to put their brand's logos on ghost ads.Actually, they've got quite tough policy concerning this.

Fake, meaning Ogilvy Paris didn't really do these ads for Epson OR Dove. They just slapped their logos on there.

Obviously Epson and Dove exist.

I think the ad works - whether or not it is completely original or not. The intent is clear and the viewer is blown away by the fine detail of the woman's facial features.

It seems we have some bitter reviewers here - that obviously feel like no one can do something as well as he or she can. Is that why you are unemployed and have so much time to review? Maybe I made a mistake in joining this group, your childish comments annoy me too much.

Guest

Yeah, sure, everyone who doesn't agree is an unemployed frustrated bitter reviewer vs a great, original creative. We're all creatives here. This year lions raise a lot of doubts. Including this very poor and unoriginal, ghost ad. Nice to see you among frustrated and unemployed though.
