weak idea

Would work if they did it for real, on the streets, as ambient media. As an ad it's so-so.

Exactly my thoughts. This is advertising 1.0. Idea is ok though

Hate advertising? Make better ads.

Yes. Art is terrible and the idea is weak, but worst of all is they have dared to upload here.

That would make a nice pickup line for a perv with a tiny dick. "Hey darling, wanna come and see my baby zebra?"

euh no. it's terribly easy, not involving. It's bad advertising.

visual puns only work when they are really really good.

It's nice little idea for a small town or local ad, but not to post it here... I think.

I agree with the ambient comments. As a print it doesn't really make me smile. But if I see tiny stripes when I am crossing the street... I would find it cute and the ad would be much much much more memorable. Get as close to people's everyday life as possible then surprise them.
