Pretty subtle. I think most people would only see Santa and turn the page.

Mickey Mouse's head. It's used as a symbol for Disneyland.

Beautiful Art Direction. Without any copy the visual subtly conveys the message. Great work guys! It's a Mickey Mouse.

Of all the people I dreamed to be, I awoke one day and discovered me.

Really beautiful. A bit subtle, but very rewarding when understood. And ten points for no copy.

actually a good job. But I think it's too clever to convey the message clearly.

Don't worry about that it is way less subtle in real

you just see it if you search for it - and which customer would do that?

This ad has two sides:
First, the Christmas invitation to the Disneyland, Paris, which I think has been portrayed here beautifully; even without any copies
Second, the subtle cue of the Disney signature Micky Mouse brand, which I think is very cleverly done, but too clever for the consumers to understand even if they stare at it for a few moments.

The problem is, when consumers get the invitation message clearly, their searching, even in the subconscious level will turn off and they will turn the page. So Majority will not even look for Micky here. There had to be something which clearly links micky with santa. But overall creative direction is superb!! and a piece of art from aesthetics point of view.

Nice. BUT Way too subtle. 99% of people will just see a nice Santa (and the message will get through though).

Nice. But it's an ad for ad people who know they need to look for something. 99.9% of everyone else will never notice the mouse.

Very nice, but if it takes us admen a few moments to get it, it's pretty doubtful regular consumers will get it.
As it is, it's a very nice Santa illustration, and as such it works.
