Considering it is South Africa it makes sense.

I think this water is somehow weird, but it's interesting.

Feels like a cheap pun. Somehow arresting at the same time.

Why is the Copywriter in the credits?... Not creative... Bad Art Direction, worst execution... I'm giving you a star because you guys sold that to Cadbury

maybe you but not the majority, some freelancers make more money when they work home. It depends only of our talent.

So copywriters only get credit when there are words? So copywriters never have actual ideas? They never conceptualize? Only art directors come up with the ideas? Wow.

How is it that nobody has mentioned that it is just plain borrowed interest from the Jaws movie poster poorly rehashed as a bad ad concept.

Hate to tell you all, reading the comments before there was no sign that people realized it was borrowed interest. Especially with commments like the "I think this water is somehow weird, but it's interesting" and "Feels like a cheap pun. Somehow arresting at the same time."

The fact that until I said something noone flat out called it bad borrowed interest tells me that people didn't realize it. Especially since it should have been comment number ONE.

If you are going to put people down maybe you should read all the comments instead of just acting like you are a witty know-it-all. Just proves to me that all you all want to be is rude, not helpful on the commentary.

Jaws eating a candy bar in a fish tank (bad water line for the ocean)... not good.

the water line seems like it's shot from a fish tank, but I see the direction..

Stop Mediocrity. Start Creativity.
There are two kinds of people in the world; people who like mustangs (cool people) and people who like camaros (idiots).

It could be good if we were in 1980
It could be excellent if we were in 1970
It could be awesome if we were in 1960
But nowadays...

even though there are plenty of white sharks in South Africa, pay attention that Jaws took place in Amity Island NEW ENGLAND

sincerely speaking i think the idea is catchy.

It's such a direct copy of the JAWS poster concept, that I would never think Cadbury would risk a law suit from Universal.
I do believe though, that even if it's an authorized rehash (and a mediocre one at that), it should include credits to either the original artist(s) or to the legal owners of the original artwork. I'm not knowledgeable regarding international copyright laws or agency accepted credit protocol, but it just seems the right way to do it.
With that kind of practice the whole team, artists, copyrighter, creative director, etc don't come out like a bunch of douche-bag unimaginative hackers, but rather as a group of people that took a vintage graphic creation, that has become part of the collective urban imagery (at least in the Western hemisphere), and applied it to a creative concept depicting just how you would hunger for one of these Cadbury bars. Creative with a touch of humor.
I just think it would be good practice that's all. This way, without recognizing who's do credit, it's more like: "Hey, we need to get this Cadbury account! Someone get me a funny catchy concept! PRONTO!" At the same time the "creative" director catches a glance from one of the artists computer screens as the guy is buying a cult vintage dvd on amazon of JAWS, and the "creative" director screams out: "Hey you! Get me a large version of that image from google images, paint it up a bit, move some teeth (to avoid law suits) and add the Cadbury bar up there instead of the girl! I need it by 3pm!".
