The idea is really great, but I think the execution falls flat.

I agree they do feel flat. I wanna love these but something is not quite right. They're lacking the "speed of the journey", or a "point A to point B" element perhaps. I'm not sure what is, but something is askew here that is preventing these from being truly great. Still, it wouldn't surprise me if they won a bunch of awards.

It would have been a beautiful execution to get everyone in a scene to be acting like they were in slow motion instead of just standing there. They could have been very artistic.

Execution is so weird - leaves u wondering what the *&^% just happened. The box just appears after the man is seen walking inside with it. I wonder why it has such a strange feel to it... like alfred hitch. movies.

No matter wat u do,
33% of the people will love it,
33% of the people will hate it,
And rest won't give a #@%#.

Wht will move consumer is.. if you show the fastest journey from point A to point B.. and not how you deliver it in the shop..
they could have done same execution device.. but showing the full journy from piont a to b.. Then it make sense.. that tells me, fastest delivery.!

At this moment idea is wrong.. !!

nice idea!!!

Great execution. For those who disagree, many people are now sick of "overly produced" TVC. There is a trend to do the exact opposite of what you expect an ad to be.

Agree! It's great crafting all on film and that's the beauty of this execution! I guess it's too easy to do it static as a post production level but then it's boring.
