this is a great ad from a saudi point of view only!!!
its not allowed to take pictures in the public in saudi besides
taking a picture IN PUBLIC of A WOMAN is BIG shit!!!!
so this guy who designed this ad..knew how to click in the saudi
market only...

But with that said, Chinese aren't allowed to use cell phones from my understanding. Could I do an ad with a chinese man talking on a cell phone, slap a Nokia logo on it, and call it good?

Why aren't Chinese allowed to use cell phones? I am actually at that point that I say that they are born with one attached to their body. I've sat with them talking business and you are in the middle of a sentence, their phone rings, they pick it up and just talk. That's the way it is.
But coming back to the ad. I think that the essential thought is not a "great" consumer insight here since this person is not from Saudi or even living there. I believe this was created because it's a funny picture... not that I agree that it's funny...

I agree with you.. This not advertising... I don't even think the intention was to make an Ad at the first place.

i think the person/s behind the ad is/are very much influenced by the wry and dark but stylish &
idiosyncratic humor of Woody Allen, Louis Bunuel, Irvine Welsh & the likes. but sadly the person/s
is/are absolutely far away when it comes to applying those inspirational moments in these ads.

i think the ad can be a good one, can we twist the message, as if one will take shots with a Kadak
for just the heck of it, no matter what the photograph is all about. it shows that even this guy
can't stop himself from taking a photograph of his family. something like that.
coz the image does have story, and nothing bad in making good use of it. what do u guys say?
