The visual is absolute crap. They could at least have made it look like water.

So sick to my ASS of militant groups like PETA, Greenpeace, etc. trying to scare me into giving them money. "Oh, if I don;t donate, these adorable children will drown and it'll all be my fault."

C'mon.

There're better ways to get me to realize that my life is the bane of the world's existence and that every time I drive to get my groceries is one more nail in the planet's coffin.

Let's debate political/environmental issues elsewhere. Personally I don't care about global warming, but this is ad they're trying to make, so stay on topic.

I think the blurring is confusing. What is it? water? soaked paper?

Perhaps they should just have water/waves rising.

Here's another idea, kids playing on a beach (or maybe not even on a beach) as water rises around them and their toys...

i think damngirl and rebelscum have no children.

here what i got: that blur on the pic is like the ocean that rise enough to hit your home, kill entire family and wet your stuff, include your son/daugther's pic. Worst of all: BEFORE your son/daugther grow.

yes, there is too much ads about global warming.
but what you will do if you have Greenpeace as a client? say "no, we tired of this"?

i think they did it well here, not awesome, not almap awards standard, but honest and good.

~i think damngirl and rebelscum have no children.~

We just made one. We're still sick to our asses of pedantic preachy ads that are little more than scare tactics that are 3 generations ahead of their times.

On a completely unrelated note, baby for sale.
