I was going to say this is pathetically weak but on reflection I'll just say pathetic.

I'd stick to pathetically weak Davosk. Very accurate indeed.

I actually meant it positive. Estonia isn't exactly a G7 country and pretty small, those countries are usually left behind when it comes to making great ads too. With 1,3 million population, of course it has less creative then let's say the UK ;-)

Also, I'm not from the USA.

C'mon Guys. don't be so harsh. Just picture living with a struggling currency which, from new year starts with the strong one. I think it's fine. It's no jawdropping, nor eyepopping. but if was an Estonian, i would say "Hey, did you see it? Cool!"

Life's a Trip. Enjoy the Ride!

It's been a long while since I've seen an alert-the-media formal announcement that a few lights are left on at quitting time. Maybe never. So the guys hitting -- or not hitting -- the light switch at quitting time are the real brainiac creative geniuses here. To them, kudos.
