Wow...Is it ad season or what?
Seems to be a massive rush of spec work coming out of the Middle East.

Righto, all good.

Photoshopping could use alot of help. Or go easier, take a picture of this subject with an oversized ring. Other than that, I like the ad's approach.

Too easy. Sorry. It has a ton of potential - I'd have gone the "boot camp" angle instead.

Smart and subtle. The target market will see it immediately and probably act on it right away. And to the poster above: the target market wants to see the results, not the method by which you get to them. If you showed the method, you'd probably lose most of your sales.

It's called "Bridal Boot Camp" - it's a unique name. A unique idea. Sure, you could show that going to the gym before your wedding will slim you up. So what? Any gym will do that. But Bridal Boot Camp? Watch out... are you ever gonna lose weight. That's your USP. That's what you have to advertise.

Idea is super-average and the retouching is awful.

It might be called "Bridal Boot Camp", but I doubt any bride to be wants to be seen looking all hot and sweaty with a drill sargeant screaming in her face. Again, it's about results, not method. The name would tell you enough; no reason to overdo the message.

Just my 0.02, and no doubt worth every single penny.

You're being too literal. The challenge is to give across the idea without being cheesy and obvious.

I see what you're saying, but juxtaposing a too-big ring with a name like "Bridal Boot Camp" is giving the wrong message. You don't just want to lose weight - you want a crash course designed just for you. This execution is too easy and, as others have said, so easy it's been doe a zillion times before. How is that effective? At the very least, that bride should have dirt under her nails.

Karaoke idea, lost count of how many times I've seen this execution... But then again advertising is not big in Saudi Arabia, you guys really need to catch up. A good start will be to go through a shit load of past archives, but maybe that's a bad idea...

Who turned the world upside down?

In my opinión, it works. But needs a better art direction.

It works!! If I was an overweight bride to be, seeing this ad would make me want to call that number!!
That for me is an ad that works.
This ad sells. That's the most important. Not art direction or ego-centric bullshit like that.
BRAVOOOO!!
