Too bad, isn't it? ;-)))

You could also distribute them in pairs to promote breast enhancement.

A good idea.

I always groan when I see an Economist ad these days, this one's funny cos, whilst its clever, its also daft.

This execution is a little better and more relevant, but knowing the award competitions, this will win at CANNES next year or ONE show or something.

What a shame, this execution is better but its the same idea, theft! (or maybe coincidence)

Is it possible to tell the story with just one balloon shot? I think that will look better (visually and storytelling).

Used this idea for a regional Australian University Open Day... in 1997.
And THAT was in homage to an Oz 'ínflated egos' print ad. Hmmm.

I saw this Economist idea way before that Brazilian ad. Just because something is posted on Ads of the World 1st doesn't mean it was produced first. Besides this seems to be a real balloon whilst the Brazilian thing was a print ad. Heard this won Gold at the One Show.

I give the Economist all the respect. I think this is the best idea they've ever produced.

Never seen a conceptual balloon before. Amazing and I wish I did it.

Awesome! Best Economist idea ever hands down!

Wow! I agree 100%
It's by far the best idea The Economist has ever done.
And that says a lot since they've done some truly great ones.
I want one. Where can I get one?

How this piece does not have a perfect 10 rating is the mystery to me.
This rating system is a bunch of bull. People and their friends vote
for each other to push up the ratings I'm sure.

This is the most conceptually & executionally sound pieces I've ever seen.

Perfect. Perfect. Perfect. I agree. It is by far the best thing the Economist
has ever done in their history, hands down. Good call.
How do I get one? Anyone from BBDO, can I have one?

This one is an 11 in my book!

No wonder why I liked that computer monitor kids day stunt so much. It's the same people who did this.
Way to go!
