Hehe, yes I love this one. Art direction is great. Though I doubt this guy will have any time to taste a Curly Ball ;p

nice one. not sure about the copy. it's not a question of luck, but of being too happy to think practically, i guess. anyone?

In fact, The ad is even better. The title "Si t'a pas de bol y'a Curly Balls". In French, "bol" means luck or in common language, bowl. So if you don't have luck/bowl, there's Curly Balls (because it's in a bag, you don't need a bol). Great one.

Nice execution on the image but I still fail to see the connection here.

Don't know why this snack is related to luck, but maybe that's in the history of the brand. But being Art Director can be so rewarding when you have a great photographer like Romain Laurent to work with. Also loving his new series 'TILT' (http://www.itsnicethat.com/articles/3175-romain-laurent-tilt)

The advertiser surely does not have the balls.
PS : I work in the agency.

Very cool, a bit dark humor.

Great idea, very creative. However, the guy falling should be facing the other direction towards the bag of curly balls. Right now, I look at the man who is the focal point and my eyes want to move off the page to the left instead of to the right and towards the product.

Nice idea. Copy is ambiguous. Are curly balls lucky or are they for forgetting about your bad luck?
