Does the arrogance of your ad (including compulsory emetic Tolstoy reference) depend on screen resolution? I'm guessing this whole misfire was a result of someone saying 'long copy ads really work' and the bored/hungover brown-noser replying 'long copy huh? Here's an idea...'

Here's an idea... get your heads out of your arse. Nobody cares how long your ego is.

Bit harsh, but making a long banner for the sake of a long banner is indeed just objectless.
On the other hand, if it was advertising the first amphibious BMW 30M water resistant car.
And we could read a Jacques Cousteau deep sea report on the way down, then it would've made total sense, right?

Good question: does that 'great idea' just need the right client/situation/context/opportunity/ball-size/Large Shoutiness/product in order for its success to shine through, or is it just a shit idea?

Let's hope the creative team on this one come down and have a chat to share their experience.

Copy is very funny. Yeah, the angry critics, not so much. Does anyone know how it's actually doing from an engagement metric? It's different, I'll give you that much.
