As usual, the art is lovely, from Brazil. But the message? I think the link between visual and the Mercedes Sprinter Cargo is a bit tooo big.

Yes it's a bit far fetched. It's good to think out of the box but there should always be a bigger box you should never cross. This one is on the verge of losing its audience.

No easy to understand :
in first i believed that they were better in the "comfortable swimming pool" :
Like if to be in a Mercedes was for them, better than to swim in the see...

Sorry, but it can be understood in this way...
i needed to see others ads to understand.
Nice but wrong i think....

Errrrrrrrrrrrmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm ok so if they need more space they get into the sea, so im guessing this is meant to be ironic? I really do not get this advert. Mercedes owners generally don't have time to concentrate on anything other than their stocks and shares, this would get lost lol

I still don't get it.. Really, where is the fun creative part at because I really don't see it. It's a beautiful pic I must say.

Ed. The concept from my understanding is people doing things where there's not much space. Someone in a mini paddling pool, or a team playing foosball etc... but around them is a huge expanse of a similar thing (a sea... a soccer field). It took me a good look at the soccer one to make sense of the others in all honesty so unsure how clever a consumer will be in interpreting the same.

Awesome art, but I can take or leave the concept. The birds eye view is what makes it amazing but also at the same time really hides the idea.
