Makes the reader work a bit, connect the dots. I like it.

I usually scratch my ass before anything else. Wonder what THAT would look like..
This is such a deceptively simple campaign.
Someone once said (and I'm paraphrasing here) that great advertising is supposed to change people's habit/lifestyle. And these literally illustrate that effect in a lighthearted way. Shifting your morning priorities.

What a SWEET campaign this is. I wish I'd done it.

This campaign actually had a pay-off, which is where the other one failed.

Una gráfica IMPECABLE.

Pero en idea, siento que no hubo exploración. Muy básico.

"Aquí también se opina en español".

"no silencies lo que no sabes expresar".

this kind of graphics have been made since the 70s, nothing new or spectacular in my opinion.The idea seems a bit basic aswell.

hehehe... i found that alot of people cannot differ what's art direction and what's ideas. the execution may have been done but it is totally difference thing. and i wonder those comment were made by creatives, client servicing or... the client?

we are in a funny industry after all... :)

When you have an idea that polarises, you have a winner.

>>>> That's not an ad. THIS is an ad.

C'mon men, y'all serious?...this same exact shit were done by Almap BBDO (in terms of Art Direction) years ago. You do remember those yellow background ands with forms made out of anthonymous words like war-peace (forming Osama Bin Laden's face).
Not the same idea, but the same resource and in this particular case, the resource is the idea.
Nice try but keep on trying.

Holla at my niggas!!!
