Hey Bananero, could you understand my comment?
I feel the same for your comment dude.

PLEASE PEOPLE, IF YOU WANT THE OTHERS TO UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU SAY, COMMENT IN ENGLISH!

Ps: My comment means "Nice ad!"

picovina!

or as I would normally write "Bullshit!".
ReRe is right. as far as we're trying to keep this an international playground, we should speak a common language. that would be english, no matter what your native language is.
if you don't agree, why don't you come here and don't just stay at your local blog???

How about instead of crying about how you can't understand what people are saying when they don't comment in English, you think about why you care.

Is it that you feel communication would be broken down to a point where we're just a gaggle of creative spouting opinions without regard for others thoughts?

You might already be too late there my man.

If he wanted a response to his comment I'm sure he'd have made an effort to write in your precious English, but it seems that he just had a word to say, and it's none of my business why he chose to write in his own language.

your ideas about communication are at best lame.
the basic principle of communication is transmitting ideas between individuals or groups. hence, if someone writes a comment on a forum, it is because he wants to tell someone something.
pretty simple, isn't it?
if he doesn't want that, then he shouldn't write. and if he wants to do it in his native language, maybe he should rather go to another forum.

Oooook, so now you've spouted what you needed to without much thought about the flip side of the coin. What now?

How are you going to stop people using their own languge?

There are free online translators that'll help you out if you "have to know" what everyone here is saying.

You might think that anyone who could make a comment and not have it blasted on this site might be onto something.

I see all you have to say is that I'm pathetic. Good argument to back up your call for everyone to speak the same language here. How else could we insult each other.

you don't get his point because you don't want to.
if there's a dispute going on on AOTW there's a 85% chance of you, "king of slim", taking part.
which would not be a bad thing. but also, there's a 99% chance that you are the one who's getting nasty or who ends the debate by your stubborn, intentional misrepresenting of previous comments.
and usually, you have to have the final say, even if it's just destructive nonsense.

In that case, [edited by admin for foul language].

If Ads of the world was, for argument sake, an international advertising conference. Then while at the conference, if someone stood up to say something in a different language, there would be a translator available to.. well, translate. There are very effective online translators that are free to use.

http://translation2.paralink.com/ is just one

So if you can get your brain around that, then we have to ask, why do people get bent out of shape because they don't understand a comment especially when it isn't even aimed at them? They must just have to know everything so that can snap at anyone who disagrees with them.

So keep your stupid percentages to yourself mate. You clearly just wanted to stick an oar in. Irony thy name is... (say your name now)

Doin' it for the points

hmm, actually you're one of the few who's snapping at anyone who disagrees with you.
it's great to see how people from all over the world comment and talk about ads from all over the world. the communicational aspect is what makes this site so unique. no ad annual or magazine can give you that.
it's a matter of decency to write in the same language as long as you strive for keeping up that communicational aspect.
now go on do what you're doing best: drop your pile of final-say poo under these comments to close this topic.

All I've ever said is, there doesn't need to be a "one language" policy on this site when there are easy ways to get around any language barriers.

And what you said is..... nothing really. You're trying to make it sound like I statred this.

Let people comment how they like, and if you feel like will cut you out the loop then you can use one of those online translators I mentioned.

How's that for poo. You're a freakin' fanny by the way.

I told you, 'I don't go red'. Or are you just brain dead? What's it like to be unloved and unwanted? Just interested to know. By the way, how goes the direct mailer business, you know, the stuff people throw away as soon as they get the shit you spent hours 'crafting'?

"I told you, 'I don't go red'." he yelled. Turning away from his wind-up IBM laptop, Drunk dave staggers to the only window in his office. He'd be the first to admit that "office" was maybe too strong a word to describe the space he now inhabited, but beggars can't be choosers, as his old ma used to say. She also walked in on him cracking one off when he was 27 and still living at home. An experience that would have been bad enough had she not offered to "finish him off".

Sorry what were you saying o drunk one? Your attempt to trip me up didn't go as well as you planned did it? Sorry dude. But you seem to have vented so lets hope this is the last we'll hear from you today.

I ought to point out that your astute assessment of my professional position was off by a wee bit, but keep swinging. You hit me with one of your crappy insults one day. And I'll be all like, "boo hoo hoo, drunk dave just said some stuff about my mum or sister that made me cry" ha ha that'd be pretty funny... if I thought you ever could.

You're hilarious mate.

I hate to appear to be perpetuating this, but could you both just stop now please.

The ad in question is nice, but I doubt that anyone here thinks it's worth this amount of disscusion.

You both need to adjust your attitudes toward this site before it turns into the "king/dave fight show".

I for one don't want to watch that.

Thanks

you right in part Rere, i agree we have to speak in english here, ok.

but after china language (more than 1 billion speakers) we have: english, spanish, indian, portuguese, russian, french...
Compare greek (your language) with spanish is a little 'over', dont u think?
i can bet: there is more people visiting this site who speak spanish than greek ;-)
and most of people speak english knows spanish too.

give yourself a break and try to learn spanish... is also more close to Greece than any english language countries... italian, french, spanish, portuguese... should be more easy to you speak, dont you agree?

about the ad here: done.

really?
it sounds plausible, but I can't see the hairy guy as having a problem.
btw, the whole idea of two people coming at each other at a corner has been done too many times lately - BBC world in the US (see both sides of the story) and Ariel in wherever that was (lady in white and a kid running with ice cream)
the only thing I like about it is the art direction.

Just as with the other concept, there's an aspect of emotion missing from these ads. We may think that the guy on the left needs help with his hair, but nothing about his posture or attitude suggests that he feels the same way.

The underlying concept of a need and a solution coming together is great, but in terms of execution, this misses the mark. Of course, there's also the fact that nobody would use a lawnmower to cut their hair, no matter how long it is... but I guess that's artistic license in this case.

The idea is not bad, but the art direction can be improved. It is too cold now. As TopJeff highlighted, the dude with the problem doesn't look too worried about his condition. You have something there, give it another spin.

please analyse the ad before you scream "complete rip off".
what's the message? is it really a "complete rip off"?

nice ads, they work fine. due to the exaggerated luxuriance of his hair the viewer completes the message in his head, even though the hippie doesn't say "hey, please cut my hair, i feel uncomfortable"

Yes! I knew I saw that ad somewhere...glad someone else could point that out.

In regards to this PC social squabble...this is a forum to get feed back on people's ads...not on the people themselves.

Especially in the context of a campaign that has NO COPY. I thought this was a venue for advertising professionals to speak intelligently about the ADS posted.
