You shud know the idea to realize the ad is amazing.The Book The metamorphisis is a classic novel about a ma who get trasformed into a bug one fine day. There's debate goin on in the literature world what insect he became, as it's not clearly metioned in the book, i think. I havnt read the buk though.

SO read a book, vbisualize whatever you wat. Great idea. Hats off.

Great visual, I like the idea. However it makes me wonder. The product is a bookstore and you need to know the book to understand the idea. Ok, the reference to the book is clear. So the question is, does it makes the target want to read the book or just the ad?

The thing is, read a book and u can visualize it all for yourself, just like a making a movie. They just took this book cz it is the perfect example. OK take The count of monte cristo...even then u can visualize it all for urself. The ad persuade u to read books....comer to the store

OF COURSE IT REMINDS YOU THE AIDS CAMPAIGN WITH THE SCORPION.
VERONIQUE WAS WORKING IN TBWA-PARIS WHERE THE AIDS CAMPAIGN HAS BEEN DONE (CHIFFLOT/MOUTAUD, CD : VERVROEGEN).

why the same book in both ads, since it is a bookstore and I really hope it has more than one book?
eyecatching indeed.

I don't recall a sex scene in The Metamorphosis, then again I haven't read it in a few years. It's quite misleading. However, it's a stunning photograph.
