The trick? There's birdseed behind the billboard which lures the doves. This is not the first time that this 'trick' is used in outdoor advertising. But it's by far the best twist that anyone gave to it, And that's what counts. This is great work and we'll probably see it back in Cannes.

if its birdseed behind the hat, why no pigeons fly into the hat? could be the oldest trick in advertising: they faked it for the film, anyway... i love it;)

Who says they're using bird seeds? You can't say it' s the same idea than friskies besides the pigeon thing. Very good work.

Loses two stars because the hat is too small, but otherwise brilliant.

Of course pigeons were used before. Mannequins on billboards too, you know. It's not about the ingredients, it's what you do with them. So hats off.

I really like it. Ok so the concept is borrowed, but well executed, on a clean backdrop of brick wall, with clean white space/less mess to show. Maybe they used bird seed...but the trick is to get them to fly off as the seeds would need refill too soon....perhaps a fan that kicks in after an interval? I agree the hat should have been 2x the size. You could say to place a wand along it diagonally...but not so needed :-) Rather well done.
