Has been done before!
e.g. by for "Der kleine Nazareno" in a more beautiful way. This looks like a student ad!

I for one find it a bit arrogant for them to suggest that every image on our bills here in Europe are buildings from Germany... theyre not.

...and let the poets cry themselves to sleep. And all their tearfull words would turn back into steam

the bills are the same in every eurozone country. they show examples of european architecture. these buildings do not exist, they just represent the various artistic periods in europe.

@Minimum: i know what you mean but.. these ads run in germany and they're supposed to make germans donate for their historical buildings. as the euro is the common currency in germany i think it's just appropriate to use the euro bills. i don't think this is about arrogance.

i love these ads, great work by o&m.
