maybe i don't get it well, but on the picture i see visible yet invisible hydrant. It really confusing, because in that case as a viewer i don't know if i'm suppose to see it or not.

maybe you can consider the objects and the kid camouflaged in the "traffic-jungle"

without that built-in reverse camera
things behind your car are not quite visibly.

I love it!

And for the guys that don't understand:

When you back up with your car, you often can't see what's behind. (Such as a Kid, a hydrant, a mailbox, etc)

I think it's pretty straight-forward.

They show the things camouflaged, cause they couldn't just make them invisible, otherwise no one would understand anything.

Nice campaign? Give me a break. So the SUV has a camera in the back, so what! This must be one of the worst ways of selling a car, ever. I have to admit, it's nicely executed but this is a weak concept.

maybe it's just as it is. maybe ford wanted to promote this particular feature. and accepting that - some people might think it's a good concept and a nice campaign.

the concept and visual idea is good, but somehow (for me) the line is not clear enough to make people get the point fast and easy.

here on this web-site, people usually WANT to get the point, so, if ONE here did not get, maybe something is wrong and the real audience will not get...
