Creative, but I would love to have seen some poignant facts or headlines on the back of it (in other words, a taste of that wake-up call). Overall, I agree with the other folks that the Economist tends to have a very strong set of campaigns.

I like the line... just not sure the cliched and over-used "Do not disturb" door hanger is the most effective choice of media. Perhaps this should've gone inside the room on the telephone handset rather or next to the bed

of all the great work BBDO did for economist this year (ostrich, pizza charts, twister), THIS wins at cannes? weird

it won because you can't miss it. If it's elswhere in the room it can be missed. If it's on the doorhandle, you got no choice, you gonna get it! Logic.
