The campaign is not only hard to understand, it isn't much fun trying to figure it out.

It's progressive symbolism. Do you see a bird or an axe?
The axe symbolizes a problem hidden within the framework of the birds which symbolize a false harmony. One has to look harder to see the underlying problem.
By the time one starts to see just the axes there are already too many axes in the picture that one can't do a thing about. Hence the tagline.

I was only able to understand this one by looking at the other. It doesn't seem to work and it is not very appealing.

.: look for the green giant on the label :.

I like the thinking behind it - clever, but the execution isn't so great on the eye.
