This is great. Without the copy would be perfect.

Totally agree. The visual uses the iconic JEEP grill to show what you would see (were you inside the engine). But instead of just letting it be simple, they had to go and convolute it with some weird language that turns the grill into a jail. Or something.

Sometimes the best idea is the one before the one you just had.

Doesn't even need copy or the suggestion of lamps - the grill is quite iconic :) lovely visual-idea.

Without the copy there would be no message retention, just a distant memory of a stowaway photographer on the engine block. Not convinced 'capture' is the right message for automotive, but the imagery is good.

Agreed. This would not work without the line.

BMW had the same exact concept, without the copy of course, 6 years ago with the X5...

If you tried to show prison bars. You failed. If you tried to tell that you'd go anywhere whit your truck, the line is not good. So, the line does not work with your image. But art direction is really neat. Good job Bogdan.

Maybe the copywriter was forced to write something...

Capture is not the right line i think, as long as it's not a photocamera ad.
Does not work for me.

I think it's irrelevant and trying too hard.

Like the ad, agree with the concept that it would be sleeker without the copy.
Less is more for sure in this ad.

(Especially for the lame slogan: capture the wild... camel?! )

Why is everyone still discussing he merits of this ad? BMW famously did it already and did it way better. Everyone can just move along.
