That is clearly not the same idea. But I have seen this same idea executed elsewhere before.

Like it the most ... still i think it would work better for saving electricity not water.

Well, the idea has been done. But done by Denver Water. I prefer this one.

And i prefer the other one too. it feels strange to waste electricity to say you need to use wisely water.

The first year of this campaign was way better than all of these one-off awards grabs. This is the only one that is similar, but as someone pointed out above, why waste electricity to talk about saving water?

Use only what you need?

Seems like this sign will cost more in power than 2 bulbs lighting a normal billboard...

wow, i would have expected to see this as a psa.

the general message speaks directly to what this country is experiencing and will continue to experience as far as resources go. kind of a direct sign of the times.

you'd never see a luxury brand get near a concept like this.
