"Duuuuuuuude." Good. Not great. Although I would have loved to have seen the rejected models for this ad...I'm sure some showed up with bong in hand.

oh come on! Yes it is preferred to do the shoot and art direct it yourself, but in reality there are times when it doesn't happen. I think the previous comment about the client not paying is pretty accurate, so why kill a good idea just because you are using an "istock" photo. I think this is a fun and different approach. Well it made me laugh.

Roshan - the shocked, and slightly perplexed hippy guy thinks 'weed control' refers to marijuana (weed) control, I guess he's not happy about it.

This is not bad for the agricultural ad sector...the reason it is a stock photo is that the client saw it as a visual and then didn;t want to spend any money doing it again and once the ad visual was approved no one changes things, because the commitee has said yes and the product manager just wants an easuy life... I didn't work on this and don't know the agency but I have experienced the pharma client in the past

The traget audience is going to need some serious green grass here not some bland opague green background. BTW My dad is that target audience

This guy looks more like a 70's tennis player, looking at the headband. Not hippie enough.
I know you Jonathon Ryder.

Hehe. I'd have gone with more hippie, less fear & loathing.
