terrible. there is hopefully something different that´s special about the product.

Interesting thought, i think they could have pushed the execution a little more.

I somehow dont get the concept even after pushing myself too far.
Would be thankful if someone could explain.

You'll love the crackers so much that you won't be leaving any crumbs for the birds, causing pigeons to go hungry (oh the humanity!) ... or at least that's what I'm getting from it.

i think it would have been cool if the pigeons were shown in 'situation'.
ie on some wires, on a fence, hanging around the streets...
but this, in a studio, looks forced and weak to me.
the idea though, is cool.

I agree!... Idea is good ..but think again about execution.

Clever idea, and I absorbed it quickly. But what ever happened to making food ads appetising? The bird is ugly and disturbing...
I don't think it will entice people into trying the product.

Excellent point. I couldn't agree more.

If this was from a 12 year old, I'd still say 'try harder next time'.

similar concept was used for a mosquito repelent brand using frogs and lizards

don't show pigeons in food ads. pigeons are disgusting.

and this one's taking the biscuit.

so i guess birds only eat crumbs left from melba toast? at any rate, this ad made me throw up in my mouth a little at the site of this horrifying bird. i too think that showing this disgusting pigeon does nothing to enhance the wanting of the melba toast. an okay idea, executed badly.

maybe the idea implies that people will buy no other bread than this specific toast once they have tasted it.

okay. maybe. that's a great insight, one i'd like to see better executed than it is here though.

hmmmmm...interesting take....but then why arent the pigeons eating all the other brands of bread that apparently nobody else will consider eating? or did the pigeons get the melba bug too and now they refuse to eat any crumb unless its a melba crumb..?

ellehcimeo's picture

if no one is buying the other brands of bread and crackers, the crumbs can't make it to the ground, thus the pigeon starves.
but i like your idea that the pigeon has the melba bug and won't eat anything else. that's a good twist too.
i'm really tired. please forgive me.

ok then let's just leave it as it is.
as i said before i don't want to see a pigeon in food ads anyway, no matter if it's skinny or as fat as they are in reality

pigeons strave to death coz no one leaves even the crumbs to the poor birds?
the premise couldnt be more doomed! i hope there's still some trees and farms left around that place.

i think its brilliant, only because i came up with the exact same idea 3 years ago that was never sold. I did skinny ducks too. It was so difficult to show that as a visual to the client. Our line was, "Youll want to keep this for yourself"

My biggest problem is that by saying "you" in the copy, I thought that the message was geared towards the pigeon. I couldn't understand why the pigeon was so skinny if it doesn't leave a single crumb. Ok idea once I got it, but still, lousy execution.
