maybe just because they happen to have the very best toys you can find... That's what they are suggesting in some way. It's a benefit to me...

Kids are grateful to grandpa for buying lot of toys, so they put up a huge monument for him when he dies.

Man this ad could sell nothing. This is the most ridiculous way to demonstrate someone was thankful.
Maybe a insurance ad.

I´ve read the rather harsh comments about the art direction and i dont like this bashing but they are right: there is no art direction at all. The look came from the photographer but it´s the art directors job to judge the composing and that sucks. It looks totally unrealistic and handdrawn in there. And another point - which is often overlooked these days - but is completely inexistent in this ad is the layout. I mean come on. If you just put a line next to the product brazilian style than think at least about an interesting typeface. It feels as if this ad was done without an art director at all.

Why is there an art director? I think he is one of those who talks too much and nobody sees that he had done anything...
and the idea....he should be fired or start again as practical trainee...to learn something.

Guest
Guest's picture

Well. The last comment sounds like a personal vendetta. Of course he did an incredible shitty job, but if you know the guy, show your name.

Guest
Guest's picture

Well - i would send the guy to Miami Ad School. I heard they´re offering art direction courses there.

Guest
Guest's picture

Bad Art Direction. Bad idea. The ad should be fired. Whats up with the clouds?
The idea understands nobody, who don´t know the idea...its a pity.
