This is the best one of the lot as it really does look like squid at first glance, and when you realize what it is you feel disgusted. However, I doubt it really was collected on the beach. Regardless the message is delivered.

Regardless it's a great price for a ten pack of slightly used condoms.

This is the only one that works. Because it looks a bit like squid, it actually relates to the beach and says something about the effects of littering. The rest leave you kind of wondering, yeah okay, what's your point?

This is really good, but I'm getting tired of seeing executions that are just telling people that there is a problem. I think by now people know there is a problem, Especially if you've ever been to the beach in LA. I would like to start seeing the next step, some executions that show easy, simple solutions.
