first of all, this comes from belgium. not germany
second, it hurts to read your attempts at german
third, I'm not german (just for full disclosure purposes):-)

and the idea wants to be: if you're a sucker for design, you'll use a designer handle even if it means you'll be discovered easily. hmm. well. but it's a nice picture, ain't it? :-)

What the hell are you talking about?

It's just saying that to evade the bad guys, the unseen people have hidden in the basement, yet they couldn't resist using a designer handle, which will be their undoing.

thats the idea, not an answer. why do I need the SS?

Yes it wouldn't have to be the SS. But it would need to be some sort of sinister element which could come searching for you hiding in your home.

oh no.... lame. If they want to show irresistible design show it in a better way, because that handle doesn't look "irresistible"

Holy shit, this is so tasteless. I can't believe my eyes. I mean, the thought behind this campaign would allow a hundred of other executions, but this is downright terrible.

A pretty crap ad.

Really not communicating clearly what is infact a tenuous and irrelavant concept. Wrong theme to target their audience.

Maybe this isn't political correct nowadays, but I like the art direction very much and the idea is ok.

But do escape hatches or hiding places even HAVE handles of any kind on them? I dont think so.

The thinking is good but the scenario is tough.

Like why is the room so “designed”. I pay more attention to the wallpaper and couch and floor than I do the message. It should just be a completely non-descript room. Of course the problem is that someone who would use a designer handle would have a nicely designed house. A visual problem im sure they argued about.

i think the dog completely negates the fact that the designer handle is the reason for their capture.
you obviously don't need the dog if you have the handle and vice versa.
this ad annoys me to all ends.
