When some one need an explanation here what is the need of this no copy ad

Guest's picture

because it is meant for dutch people. they will understand it. duh

do you even know anything about advertising?? not EVERYONE will understand EVERYTHING

and the explanation is: dutch smoke lots of week in coffee shops, and they make the smoke rings

I like it and I don't mind the placement of the logo at the top, it works but it's so bloody big. It makes the ad too top heavy.

Yes, a huge logo upside broke the layout's ballance. I find the idea interesting, but I didn't like and I can't say why.

enough space is here to make the logo big and no need to make it smaller it is totaly balanced layout.

In Portugal people tend to smoke while they drink their coffee too (an excellent experience for that matter, we have an excellent coffee and an excellent tradition I have not find anywhere else), so my perspective here is a confused - isn't this advertising to tobacco also??

.: look for the green giant on the label :.

Coffeeshops are bars in the Netherlands where it's legal to buy and smoke soft-drugs. Furthermore: Dampkring is directly translated: "ring of mist". For Dutch residents this ad is a no-brainer.
