the cast seem to be only Indian is the car only for indians in this part of the world?
and why is the background hazy as if it was dreamy ?

Ok can someone please explain why and how can a human being working in the Ad business approve or do such a thing.
It is not only poorly art directed but it is also awfully wrong.
The worst part is that it makes you think that there is something interesting and suddenly you feel so bad for thinking that way.

Humans ARE slower than cars!!! They don't seem to be slower.

Obviously the world seems slower coz you are in the damn car and everybody else is walking!! sheesh...since when did cars race with pedestrians??!!?

If the 'snails' were in other cars, i would still say o.k. (if i'm in a generous mood, that is). But while they are walking?? C'mon!!

Last time I checked a person is slower (in speed) than a car.

Sorry guys or girls but this ad is pretty sad. No payoff just an extremely straight literal ad, we are suppose to be lateral thinkers, leave the literalness up to the suits

Jesus Christ. I would have never believed that i will agree with the rest of the people here, but this idea is retarded. Do you guys get paid? Because i know a homeless guy who can do better. Shame on you.

I can't even rate this... Guys, honestly, there's no relevance, no insight, no thought, no originality. To top it off, it's poorly executed. Everyone here's right - people ARE already slower than cars so you're merely stating the obvious in a very very bad way. I usually try to give constructive criticism but the best I can say is that this idea should've NEVER been approved by your CD (shame on you) nor client in the first place.

Something I don't understand about you guys.
Most of you find VW ad, of which the concept is quite similar to this, a good one.
Why this is not? Because it compares people to cars? Is that it?
Please stop exaggerating.
