Fake!!! Milky way does not have any caramel in it... Unless this is a new product they are making. Cool idea anyway.

I should know, because I eat this stuff all the time, but Milky Way does NOT have stretchy caramel inside! Sell this fake idea to Twix instead.

You might be thinking of Three Musketeers, which does not have caramel. Milky Way has caramel, indeed.

You must be one stupid idiot if you don't even know what your eating.

what do you know about work in creative department exactly?

Last time I checked, copywriters don't just write radio spots & stacks of body copy.
Are you kidding me? Both Art Directors & Copywriters in advertising come up with ideas.
you're clearly not in the business.

clearly you have no idea how people come up with ideas. art director and writer in room come up with stuff together. just because there are no words doesn't mean anything

This stupid idea only works when a car has a belt with that color.

My mistake, I did not notice this was put on a cab.

Shouldn't there be another strap on it, like by the waist? I've never seen a one strap diagonal seatbelt before. I guess they also invented a new type of seatbelt.

Wow this is really great!
How smart to use the caramel of the product.
Perfect!

I agree. This will clean up at the shows this year.
Finally an ambient idea that says something about the product.
Perfectly executed too. I'm jealous and I want to kill you:)

looks like the earnest little employees from this agency have not been following the rules of posting on this site ...
not sure what's worse - the ad - or the self-praise.

I'm with the majority on this one. This is pretty damn innovative.

if this never ran and wasn't approved by the client, then this should win jack shit. it's not advertising if the client doesn't approve it.

How right you are... and you know they're entering this into shows because of the production value. As an industry we should stand up against this cheating crap. Many award shows have a "concept" category, so enter it there. But don't pretend it ran when it didn't. And running once, in Iowa at 2am doesn't count either.

I read an article in adage about this. It did indeed run.
People have to stop yelling fake at stuff that's legit.
This is darn good.
