Gil, Lena, Sharon, Oren,

You're awesome. I'm in love with this illustration and the copy had hairs on my arms dancing like spiders on speed.

On an advertising note, is there a follow-up to connect it closer to the client? I'm not being critical, just curious, because this is a *moving* series, which is no doubt why the client loved it. I look it and see two sides. Then I see the tagline 'the best or nothing' - which is also two sides. Which eventually makes me want to wonder "am I being asked to choose between my left and right, between the best and nothing, do I have to decide if I'm analytical or creative? Because I want both." And the client tagline doesn't say 'both'. So unless you can persuade them to tweak their tag, I'd love if you made a follow-up that married this campaign more closely with their words. But still, congratulations on all of these. Beautiful work.

The illustrations should be wall art, but I am finding a hard connection to the idea with the copy

CP, if you see dancing spiders on speed, your probably on mushrooms :]

I am the viewer who sees the ad. The one who judge. The one who perceive. The one to decide. I like the illustration. The art. I am skeptical. Whether the ad is best or nothing.

Gorgeous artwork, but it looks a bit familiar. Cornett had an eerily similar left brain/right brain design on its homepage for a year and half. It was just taken down in October. http://www.cornettims.com/the-tail-of-two-brains/

Don't understand the concept and the link with the brand. Mercedes is a car for classic persons without specific personality. Luxury, not crazyness... Fail for me. Same if the ad is beautiful!
