Might have made a better ad if he took away all those words and just scaled up the photo of the pack of condoms. Bad, in almost every way I can think of. The colors are off, the text is way too long despite having no meaning at all, the product isn’t promoted visually.

"Named post powerful man in the Middle East by the magazine The most powerful men in the Middle East"

Who does he envy?
Somebody who speaks English.

Sorry to be harsh...but when you're working on such a prominent client like Beiersdorf, have some decency people to:
A) Speak English.
B) Not be so rudely complacent to misspell the most basic word: Confort? You who wear?
C) Not use so many complicated adjectives & adverbs in the entire copy in order to compensate for lack of substance and soul in the writing.
D) Not use such outdated stereotypes, clearly nobody has discovered an oil well since 1965 in the entire GCC region.
E) Have a purpose for the art. If you even need it. What's the point of the Burj Khalifa?
