The first time I saw this art I wanted to make an ad like this, but didn't have one that would work. This works beautifully. If copying art is taboo in advertising, we're all in trouble.

The arts have influenced many ads, and I must say I really, really like these.

i like the use of "the shadow art shows" in an AD

The man who stops advertising to save money is like the man who stops the clock to save time

These are GREAT. Pointing out the art it is based off of made me like these even more. Made me happy that it wasn't just a fake retouched shadow. Very nice.

Very nice indeed. Who cares that some artist did it first.

But once an agency uses this execution in another ads, then they are accused of stealing/ copying from Lowe. Hmmmn....

However, I'm not against this, whether 'borrowing' from art or an ad, as long as it's relevant and works for the concept.

Any other opinion?

Nice, and real and for a real client, a nice change on that front

Strip. Strip. Strip.
