my initial reaction is: so horrible. dont compare what happened to tianamen square to litter on beaches.

but then i think, ok. to animals i suppose it is. but still, using tianamen square is too strong and irrelevant.
a cause like this needs less borrowed interest, and more thought

I thought I should do something to save the planet but apparently, turtle are in charge for it.

I like the idea, but hate the execution. Also, you didn't need to ad "Tianamen square" cpoy... it's like over explaining it. Overall : fail.

I wouldn't borrow Tiananmen Square for use in any ad. Even if it's about saving the turtles. How is this linked to Corona?

Tiananmen reference was used many times in advertising, as were many other historical photos. I don’t see any problem with that.
One of the best executions was by Sims snowboards. I’m sure you all remember this piece of brilliance:

First reaction is confusing
Normally, baby turtles leave the beach and litter is washed onto shore..
It would have been crisper if the hatchlings would be climbing out of a trash littered sand nest
