This is bad. life animals as crashtest dummies have nothing to do with CO2 emissions. and this horrible 'impact' pun can't save it

Clients complain that people don't read. I don't want to beleive that but if advertisers don't read either, who does?

It says:
"Engineered for a LOWER IMPACT on the ENVIROMENT"

Think it for a while.
Then, in anytime, it will come to your mind as an idea.

Wordnerd. It´s not a pun it´s a metapher. The shown animals are the first to extinct, if we keep raping the earth with emissions.
It´s a very good advertising thought and get´s the message across. And there´s nothing that has to save this ad, cause it´s a relevant for a real client and it´s got a deserved lion. What did you do this year?

i get what they try to say. but a crash test is the wrong metaphor for me. and for me this is a pun. the word 'impact' is the only connection between the image and the message.
thumbs up it won in cannes, honestly. it's hard to score there and i wouldn't be the one saying they don't deseve it. cause i'm not the jury. but thankfully that doesn't mean i have to love every winner. do yout? and i'm quiet satisfied with my work, thank you for caring ;)

regardless whether it works or not, i think it's just hilarious seeing penguins being thrown around in a crash test.
