i think the idea is supposed to be that steel is strong enough that you can hang a car to a billboard. it looks fake. beyond that, who cares? we already know steel is strong. we have 1,500 foot buildings made out of it. i'm not impressed.

I'm not even sure myself, but I think they might be trying to say that the steel in the car is so strong that they couldn't even bend the cutout to fit against the wraparound billboard...?

I think you figured it out. It's a good thing, because I certainly wouldn't have.

The visual treatment where the car's "pulled away" from the billboard throws me.

>>>> That's not an ad. THIS is an ad.

:: aRs :: its photoshop! look at the papers below it, and they are all in spanish, so why should anyone make an english ad in a spanish speaking country?

Actually it's not that unusual to have ads with English headlines in countries where English is not the first language. I see quite a few mag ads with an English headline and German or Italian body copy. English h/ls are very common in Asia too.

Given that, I have no idea if this ad is photoshopped. I don't know if it is fake, but I do know it is crap.
