Sorry Ahmed, I thought it was clear that I'm not very impressed by this campaign, to put it mildly. That's why I kinda liked the name 'Talent', got it?

Can i ask u very kindly, what does it mean that u r not impressed of this campaign? in terms of what? how u decided that its not impressive?
consider me an ass-hole with a zero knowledge in the advertising and marketing business and explain to me?
I'm very open, i may change my opinion , thanks :|

I'd have to agree with Harvey on this, although not as harshly, this is bad work for two reasons:

1. Replacing heads with product is a first idea and appears everywhere in poorly done local ads.
2. Most importantly "what's your mood today" and showing the tv screen shot has no bearing on the TV product your selling. The creative is actually just promoting TV channels. Bc the "mood" is based upon what their watching....not the TV.

End

1-you can't make " appears everywhere" a general conclusions in everywhere, what u think it can work here, may not work there, and vise verse, also , you cant 't decide what's the market needs in terms of the knowledge, it may be complicated to them to understand something more creative,
my friend,

creativity=something artistic= wow
Creativity+marketing= functionality
creativity+marketing+strategics thinking= Results guarantee

then, you have to choose either to be an artist or an advertiser

2-Simply,regards the message, it a new TV Channels,----> means new (materials)------> it's al about (emotions and feelings) -----> mood. and so, what is Ur mood today!

Thank you

Dear Ahmed,
I just don't like this campaign. Replacing heads by tv's or other objects, I've seen it so many times. Furthermore I don't like the art direction and the copy.
Naming your agency 'Talent' made me laugh. If I offended anyone by doing so I'm very sorry. By the way, I never said you were an asshole with no knowledge of advertising whatsoever, but now you've got me doubting....
Yours sincerely,
Lee Harvey Oswald

Dear lee,
For you to know, I'm not belonging to this agency, but I hate not to respect the effort, I hate to hear someone saying "ooh, bad." with no explanations, also I hate the spirit of (I'm a great creative, and I know everything in the business of advertising), so I asked you to explain your P.O.V in a very polite request, and you did, and I knew now either you are and artist or an advertiser, and that's it :)

Thank you, and thanks for Ur time

You're more than welcome, Ahmed. You are probably the most polite commenter on this site, which is a good thing. Now let us both get back to work, and I will be looking forward to reading your future comments.
Happy painting and God bless.

It would be much more useful - both to those who submit their work, and to the readers - if critics were made with respect, and with an adult, professional language. Thank you

Good campaign overall but they can be great if more effort taken on details to compliment the mood presented. for example (in the above ad the dress the girl is wearing cud have been floral pink to set the romantic mood) and things like that. Small details is what makes the whole comp work.

Well, thats what I think.

This campaign was used by TV Company SKY in Mexico this very year. I'd like to know which one is the original.
