This ad didn't start on paper either. It was banged out in 5 mins by an account guy.

Why did BMW go for so many bad ads all at once??? Maybe they have ample money to burn OR a bad taste.

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

Dig it. Car has nice detail and shape. Is this CGI?

Could really care less about copy here... I want to drive that car! That's the goal right?

The copy is lame, and the ad is cold and boring. Nothing sexy here. A sculpture doesn't make me want to drive the car. It can't even move. Everything here is stationary. It seems like it might have made more sense to focus on the design of the car and somehow relate it to art. As it is, talking about the driving experience doesn't make sense: There's no driving here. Seems like a disconnect. Was the copy writer in the same room when they hatched this idea? It feels thrown together.
