War, 3

Description: 

The main goal of this campaign was to show how a single cigarette contains a huge amount of toxic substances that attack your body each time you smoke. They are a True invasion force. To illustrate such an idea we looked at the past, present and future of human conflicts and came up with these 3 ads. It all needed to look very epic so we decided to do everything in 3D, each element was individually modeled in a long process which took almost 9 months.

Print advertisment created by BBH, Brazil for ADESF, within the category: Public Interest, NGO.

More than 4,700 toxic substances against you. Stop smoking.

gawddd, 9 months to make this! A similar idea done by an Indian agency years ago simply showed a cigg followed by an "*" and then the * followed by a list of 1500 chemical names, this just seems like putting too much work to make the same idea look different. Just shows that simplicity beats complexity.

lulz Ivan if the comment contains the word @ -gen- cy, then the spam filter doesn't allow it to be posted, how can we talk about advertising without using the world "@ -gen- cy"?

"Against you" isn’t weak, copywriter?

I had that exact idea 4 years ago. My CD rejected it, saying it would take almost 9 months to create art like that. I never forgave him for that. Boy, do I feel like a dumb ass now.

Yeah, right...9 mnths on every little piece is crafted so individually? That's wat i saw u wanna mention in your rationale...that's it, just wanna make people think it's "WOW! 9 months, good job." ? So what's the difference if any1 with good skills and art direction can make it in shorter time with the same result?

Each of these 3 ads individually is interesting, but together it makes the terribly boring campaign.

really cool design work. nothing we haven't heard before and certainly nothing that will convince anyone to stop smoking, but still, cool design work.

I like the Art Direction and the crafting, but the Tide Grand Prix in Cannes comes to my mind, there is some resemblance.
The idea is ok, nothing special, overall it is a good ad.
If it took 9 days or 9 months is irrelevant from the "consumers" point of view.
