Idea is smart and clean. Like it a lot. Art direction is really bad however.

Hey, here is a brilliant idea. Lets show how your product can destroy a 150 year old landmark.

For me, this comment cut this particular ad off at the knees. You're right. It's a negative connotation that is right out front there and in your face.

How fun would it be if the dotted line was actually perforated? And you could just tear the tree in half! I'd get way too much of a kick outta that one.

Dotted line as cutter guide = good idea. Image and execution = lazy.

Not sure if I think it's too simple? Or just brilliant? Ah hell, it's the holidays - it's brilliant!

definitivamente esto es una porquería. es como vender armas con una foto de Bambi en la mira. a quién se le ocurrió semejante estupidez de poner un árbol tan hermoso y antiguo? no era lo mismo poner un leño? idiots...
