Leo Burnett Italy s reputation is "mudding" with this ad.

There Is New Shit Under The Sun. There are still BigBadFatMadafaka ideas.

Dear Fallon! Please don't be so personal and offending. Let's talk about the work and not the people behind it.

Many thanks Ivan, I really appreciate your comment.
Let's stop offending Italian people, it seems to me there is a sort of conspiracy against Italian work.
Maybe we are not the best advertiser in the world, but there is non reason to attak people personally...

Then maybe you can help, Otto54.

Can you give us an insight into the Italian mindset?
Why does Italian creative have this wonferfully off-beat flavour to it?
Otherwise, we have no point to relate this creative work to.

I have no answers for your questions.
I only think that there is a lot of s***t all around but, I don't know why, everybody focus on the Italian ones attaking us personally.
Go on giving comments on the ads not on the country or the people. And this is not only for Italian people but for every country.
It is useless and above all is not funny.

As an advertising art director, you must have some insight into your market, otto.
Like, you must know how we ad types can be real bitches when it comes to questionable work.

My experience and memory of Italy (2 months in 1993) was of a wonderfully friendly, chaotic place where everyone smoked, dressed very well and had an opinion on everything. Not to mention some wild tv ads with cleavaged sales girls in selling prociutto to 13 year old boys!

Me? I'm not getting your ads thinking. But, I'm celebrating the Italian style, not denigrating it. :)

Again, dear Rog, I'm not questioning on the work. I absolutely agree with you on teh fact tha Italian work is not brilliant.
But criticize the work si usefull, criticize the people is, on my own opinion, useless and mannerless.
In the end you was in Italy 14 years ago, don't you think that a country can change during this time?

I pubblicitari italiani sono retroironici.
Gli piace farsi ridere dietro.
Avanti così.

Sorry Ivan.
My love for advertising made me do it.

Ok, talking about the work.
Well, the headlines here are completely ridiculous and make no sense at all.
And the art direction looks like it was done 5 minutes
before the ad went for print.

Ok, I'm giving up on this campaign. I guess they meant something like "Proud to muddy its reputation". But why bother adapting it so badly? Leave the original Ialian and add in an explanation at the bottom. At least we can forgive rough translations and get the gist. But this is just - nonsensical.
