kerja di "jentera" tapi sejak "dini" tetap "exist" bermain "petakumpet" sambil "mara-mara" tapi tetap tersenyum "simpul" di bawah sinar "srengenge" yang penuh dengan "syafaat"

good local content. but the bad thing is, this ad needs a lot of footnote because the ad doesnt speak for itself. it doesnt have any universal elements that can make me understand as a foreigner.

I think the gas mask is a good universal element.
doesn't it say poisonous air in any language.

I like this becuase unlike many 'tight', clever or slick ads, this considers the people and their lives, it seems more from the ground up, then 'imposed by the brilliant minds of art directors' down.
And thanks Ivan for the diversity. I think there needs to be more of that.

I'd say the gas mask is as much universal element as it can be. Even if I didnt know a thing about this Gatot Kaca character.

It just screams - keep the air clean

by the language of it,its not universal but the image
certainly tells something. Nice but nothing new.

sori, sy gak terima klo ini jogja banget. ini tipikal orang2 kita, mengeluarkann kelokalannya secara 'mentah', hanya sekedar 'baju'. sy pikir gak cuman di jogja, di surabaya, bandung, bahkan jakartapun. mari kita blajar iklan lebih dalam..
