I get this is audience oriented that most agencies would get this and the stock photo play-on thing is interesting in a parody sort of way, but anyone else is going to be very confused by this. Anyone unfamiliar with Cannes Lions is not going to get this or understand what the product is. Kinda ironic honestly.

It's a bit first-thought. This doesn't really have the legs to stretch out into a full campaign. The headline is the same on every execution, and the visual doesn't change enough to make each ad interesting on its own. So you see the first ad, and you think "Cool. Where's this going?" and then it's just 4 more of the same thing.
