must have been a 10$ budget, you need to locate the map to see where srilanka is, it's sooooo tiny. funny that they got an ad-industry.
but i like the idea, bad visual, great idea.

admittedly work is not the greatest in any means. some junior creatives in Sri Lanka have done far better work but FYI size of a country doesn't reflect it's creative prowess.
Agencies from Sri Lanka have won ad awards around the world... So before you open your stinking mouth and bash a country...go read up little son...
Sri Lanka won a Gold this time at ad fest...won Silver at Adfest and countless awards across ad shows including the Cannes...
what have you done?

Algunos estadounidenses no aprenden..siguen siendo igual de prepotentes y maleducados a la hora de calificar el trabajo en función a su nacionalidad.
Patético.
Os quiero recordar que Vietnam tampoco era muy grande.. :DDD
No puedo soportar a los estadounidenses prepotentes. Hablais como si vuestra publicidad fuese excelente...

Some Americans do not learn .. are still as rude and arrogant when it comes to grade the work according to their nationality.
Pathetic.
I want to remember that Vietnam was not very big .. : DDD
I can not stand arrogant Americans. You speak as if your advertising was excellent ...and it is not.

An ambulance service/comany won cannes this year with a layout and idea very similar to this one. It is not because is british but the british one was much better than this one. Regarding to layout and copy.

thought provoking, red lime has been producing some decent work, but a small agency, you need to grow bigger in size and produce more work, this is good for sri lanka, nice stuff nish redlime
