What the hell?

A) Troy wasn't in the desert.
B) TERRIBLE execution, shadows missing on legs, Dust cloud looks terrible, ground is weird.

Nice idea, although very bad photoshoping, it just don't look good enough.

...Do people on here even know what Miami Ad School is? This was done by students. Thus, no budget, no re-touchers, none of the fancy shmancy agency stuff to make your work look better than it really is. That being considered, I think it's great!

Yes, I agree. You must allow for a lack of slickness to a piece of student work. That being considered, I think that it is a great idea that suffers because they tried to force a product benefit in that doesn't make sense with the subject matter. If they left it in a Greek countryside setting instead of making it in the desert it would be much improved.

Nice idea, poor knowledge of history... The ancient city of Troy is quite close to sea not in the middle of the desert... That's how Greeks traveled to Troy: via ships:)
They should switch the noah's ark headline with The Troy one... because you know most sources say, the arc is somewhere on the mount ararat, eastern Anatolia... where there's no floods or water anymore but dust :)

Okay, although you are correct that Troy is near the sea, this ad is about how this Trojan horse has been there so long that the near by beach has turned into a desert. It's just like the Arc one. A Hyperbole....come on people!

Too many cooks in the kitchen....

oh come on! a hyperbole?? The trojan horse which is by the sea (not really, Troy is located 3-4 kms away from the beach to be precise) in the future is so well protected until the beach has turned into desert???? welcome to the planet of the apes... also, the arc is somewhere on a mountain in the present day but if the horse ad is about future like a post apocalyptic scene, the signals get mixed.

Kinda cool for a students. Also I agree - Be careful. Stupid mistakes (like the Troy in the desert) can destroy good idea. Especially when you are from states so everyone will make jokes at your geography and history knowledge :))

And if i were you i would fight with the copy. It's too descriptive for me.

but still - i like the idea a lot
