Well of course I think its hilarious!! Very creative, and they chose the "best man they can get" for this ad. I just wonder what other color background might have worked with the red (not sure about the blue.)??

Thanks for the comments! So far, there have been two or three posts regarding whether the ad has been done before. Can you please find it and post the link?

Many thanks!

I like it. And I could see this beeing turned into a whole campaign with 3 or 4 pieces just by making different, yet very recognizable style beards with the shaving cream.

I agree. A Very Bad Execution. With good Art Direction and photographer it could work.

I mean its not a winner, a small but nice idea.

I'm just wondering... why bad execution. You've said it's a "bad execution" but you haven't stated why. Please enlighten us. Thanks.

he's referring to the corporate look. someone didn't think what background would make sense on an xmas card, what else could be done to make the santa claus even clearer. an example: would a foam santa hat have made it a quicker read or would it have made it too much? how about that blue background? usual PG background, should it be altered? how about the logo, it's size and placement?

bad execution means the art director hasn't done his or her job.
