To me, this only shows the difference between ads and art - I don't think that is what it wanted to do.

The age-old argument against commercial artists by fine-artists is that we're sellouts, because we're selling a product. What this campaign does is demonstrate, in clear terms, by pitting seemingly 'uninspired' commercial art against the finest of fine art (Goya, Pollock, Dali). Stressing that ad pieces are now worthy gallery pieces.

The counter argument is that the ads we're probably inspired by the paintings in the first place so whats the point? Good campaign in any case.
