Description: 

In Portugal coffee with milk is Café com leite. We’ve played with the words changing leite for latte, (milk in Italian and the name of the product). Similar words that permits the public to read coffee with latte and at the same time understand that we are meaning coffee with milk. This works disruptively funny in Portugal.

Por que os portugueses tomam leite no supermercado?
Porque na caixinha diz: Abrir aqui.

Por que os portugueses só tem chulé no pé esquerdo? Porque as mães deles diziam: "Lava esse pé direito meu filho."

I don't get the 'disruptively funny' part. This ad is forced and outdated. Im not saying that visual metaphors are out, but they have evolve to be more subtle and elegant. The postproduction work looks good though.
