It's the right sentiment and speaks for optimism...good execution, I reckon.

I like it. It's intelligent and treats readers as though they are intelligent. An agency should have done this campaign as a house ad. Good work.

As a creative I really like this idea, as well as the mental leap it requires. But I have a feeling it could go over the heads of 90% of its target market who may not even notice it. I saw this at my local train station - and some ads get people's attention as they're waiting for the train - but everyone seemed oblivious to this. Perhaps they mistook it for a genuine torn down billboard.
