Its not bad if you carry on an Idea from one ad to another as long as its differently executed. is it?

This is quite old now. You've probably seen it on another blog.

A textbook example of what not to do for an outdoor billboard. Very poor art direction. Green on gray background??? If you squint your eyes, those words almost completely disappear (yet, you can still see those two cars on the VW billboard far behind it.)

That's a trick I learned from a very well-known creative director when I was still an art director working on a billboard assignment for United Airlines. Many (trained) art directors still do it to test color contrast and its legibility under different light conditions before releasing the mechanicals to vendors.
There's even an industry-standard test (the name escapes me right now) for the effectiveness of OOH boards where they scientifically measure legibility at different distances and light conditions.

Is it called Moby Test? Does that ring a bell? You probably don't even know what the hell I'm talking about. Oh, well...

Exactly what we were taught.

If you're a creative and don't know this technique when doing billboards, better start now ;)

I agree with you I wonder why the grey background. Red or yellow would've worked great.

I find it quite boring as compared to the other Mcdonald ads.
