Idea is cool. Dramatic colors are OK for the concept. But, that reflexion is not possible... But it's only a detail...

True True, if only they really study how a mirror reflects.

thats the whole point.
it's how a drunk person would see it, not neccesarily the right way

That bugs me too, especially on the other execution. I'm not sure why the mirror is even needed, they could have just had the grim reaper peeking out from behind the tree.

I believe the mirror is needed. It reflects how an intoxicated person's perceptions are physically off.

Now, if the mirror's angle error could be corrected, it would be stronger.

maybe the other side of the road is a curve, too...

Well I like it, but if this is a final, it looks like a draft level Ad to me...

I like the insight.
It reminds me of one of my favorite ads from from way back...
It's danish but I thought I'd share it with you anyways...

"CAA reminds you not to drink and drive."

Why is it necessary to put the agency name? Sigh.

would it be better if it was a print with a road image instead of a mirror?

the mirror isn't even facing that curve, so how could possibly reflect it. Good idea or not, this is a big mistake

the only problem is the title "mirror"
to me it's a drunker's vision

this is a cool campaign, but those tire marks, are not necesary.
good job anyway.
