Agreed.

Should have gone with some petrified wood. Hard to display that though I suppose.

Maybe if the art direction was a bit more "unrealistic".

I don't know, an illustration maybe? Or just a crazier photo?

I still like the idea though. It's quick and funny.

I like the idea. Very nice. Whether it is right or not, I think we can safely assume the audience are not anal enough to give a shit.

Does the ad tells its' point nicely? -Yes...
Is advertising all about solid logical facts? -No...
Does advertising uses exaggeration as a tool often? -Yes...
So?...

Skor's picture

Totally agree with you.... Why is that ad people get into finding logic and flaws in ads? It's a nice ad, end of story...

and why is it that everyone is so up and ready to find flaws with other people's ads while their own are shite?

Do I sense a little bit of "I wish I thought of it, but since i didnt, let me just make it seem like a bad idea that's illogical?"
