It's cool but a little blind. Is this for guys who like to play hoops with their buddies..organized kids leagues...Would totally pay off better if the URL was ymcahoops.ca or something...but it made me smile..

Let's keep advertising fun

I like minimalism. But this seems sort of half-way there. Something more would lift it to the next level.

That's it.

It's simple, and true... but there's something missing here. It doesn't quite get to that next level.

In other words, it's not as clever as the agency thinks it is :P

Looks eerily similar to a Special Olympics ad I once saw done by a young student.

Definitely unique, but the communication message itself looks very inferior. Anyone can remember about this unique ad, but they very bother to accept the message

very cheap scamwork. where's the relevance? where's the message? student work imho.

great idea, but I agree with those above that the art direction isn't quite there.

would be better for something that makes you jump higher. or a child's growth supplement. very student-y.

Not conceptual. It needs something that isn't so linear. Like for an energy drink like Powerade, this would work. Even for a Nike Shox basketball shoe this would work. But otherwise, this is pretty lazy.

And will this structure last? Or am i the first who think in put a ball in that net?

Them lucky that Michael Jordan is retired.

This was done in the late 90s by a Circus grad. Thanks for ripping it off and being behind the times.

for those who don't know, basketball was literally invented at the YMCA.

This has been done before. Your strategy is showing. That's a no-no.

i think its because women suck at aiming so they gave them bigger backboards! hahaha

What would you add, a headline?

Do people no get this because they're not from North America, and aren't familiar with YMCAs?

Typical pro-bono work. Agency had a cool one off idea that needed a client.

It does need a headline. Minimalism is good but some kind of message you should express. "Basketball" is not a message. "The league with/for the best athletes" (who jumps the highest) or something... then it will make all sense.

again?

(there's message on a pole)

So there is! However putting a message on the pole hoping people will read it, is like putting the headline in the legal small print.

Is it just me or would this idea be better with something like Nike Air or something or a Powerade?

The hoop needs to be bigger so it's relative to the size of the billboard. Looks really off with it being so small, cool idea though.
