Completely generic, doesn't talk about Jamaica (this could apply to any isle in the entire region) and a "friendship" theme does seem disingenuous considering how Jamaica routinely calls for murder of LGBT people.

TheSmirkingFox I am lost. Is this advertising or is this a the news report? If it is advertising I believe it works, it's not groundbreaking, but not all can and that seems not to be the point. The message is clear, most people will understand and it's fresh and funny. It's not pollution. If it is a news report, I have to agree with you, they weren't totally accurate with their arguments in favor of going to Jamaica and they clearly misss the LGBT murder issue.

Still isn't remotely original. "Make new friends" is probably the dullest line I'd personally *never* think of again, having seen it since my persuasive writing class in 3rd grade.

I really like the art direction.
