Copy is a little bit hard to read but I love how they placed the product, logo, website, etc. Really neat.

Too many subtexts going on here for this to be the simple joke they probably intended. But frank reading says "amateurish headline, concept and execution".

P.S. - As elaborately as this shot is propped and processed, why couldn't this lady hold the ice cream box level, huh? Huh? Why not, huh? Why didn't they straighten it, huh? Huh? Why not, huh?

So much wrong on so many levels, none of which have anything to do with religion, btw.

Most shocking ad. Are pregnant women allowed to indulge in sugar?

I'm sad that Christians aren't meting out violent death threats.

Well, about the ad, stupid pun.

I have no problem with these types of ads; it's just that they are cliched. There are few more from this campaign. View here,

I'm glad that Christians aren't meting out violent death threats, they are civilized people.But this brand will die to death.

Simple ideas are the best !

The art direction is great, the layout and placement is great... but the copy and the concept is extremely forced!

And then GOD said...
Let there be creativity!!!
