They trying to say BMW is faster than the jet?

But I think 100 will not be enough to claim can make the jet looks moving backward...

one of the ways to answer a brief is to exaggerate the product benefit.
in this case, the benefit is 'it's fast'.
they've exaggerated it.
cosybay, no need to take things so literally.
i like this ad, it made me think. always a good thing.

Yes but there is such a thing as going too far. In my sophomore ad class my instructor taught us the concept of "permission to believe". Meaning, some ads may exaggerate their product but in a way that it is not overly BS and you can appreciate what the intended message was. In this case, the BMW being faster than a jet, on a scale of 1-10 on the BS meter it is 11.

This ad was a desperate attempt at illustrating how fast something is.

the benefit on bmw isn’t the speed at all. it’s about enjoying driving.

for example bmw's flamingo spot has a focus on speed.

but it’s the bmw and not a jet. so it's about enjoying speed.

it could be used for example for bmw m3- there are similarities to this concept here.

the overall benefit is driving. this ad though is all about speed.

nevermind the exaggerated quality here...i think this spot portrays enjoyment of speed and control well enough...in fact, the driver is so comfortable with the car at 100 that he/she is still able to take in the view.

still nothing spectacular..but good.

We tried ideas like this for Mercedes, but the client hated them. Too exaggerated.

ok, i understand it and i think it's a good idea. but if the plane is photographed in movement, why the clouds aren't? well done, but not too much.

i had the same thought about the clouds myself...maybe theres some weird atmospheric something-or-other that explains that...

your not really making sense guy....explain yourself.

are you saying that the clouds should be blurred or not? cuz i could imagine an argument for both....

the_ashlands, are you asking me? i'm saying that the clouds shouldn't be blurred. clouds don't travel as fast as a jet, not even close. why would they be blurry if they are only travelling at say 15km/hr? it's got to do with the theory of relativity.
also, i'm not a "guy".
Cheers.

i didnt mean guy in the sense that your a man, its just a boston saying i suppose.

i thought the clouds should have been blurred in the first place anyhow...but, whos to say how far away those clouds are in relation to the car and the jet tho? the clouds should most likely be blurred.

i dont know why im having this conversation...i really dont even care about this crap.

me neither.
it's a case of "the Mondays". I wasn't offended by you calling me guy. I just wanted to clear up that I'm not a guy. I found myself going off on big long descriptions today, for no real reason, other than maybe i'm bored.

cheers to you sir boston.

They screwed the idea by having that line. It kills what the visual is so very well conveying in the first place.

the main line should be something like "fly" i suppose and after that 0-100... as a subline.

Pros are loyal lovers.
