Suck a fuck... is there really nothing else you can say about this car apart from "well, not many people have got one, so you won't be a sheep"?

Well, I rather not have it. But this is how we are. Creatives are usually very harsh.

correction ivan: juniors with too much time and not enough ideas are harsh.
these forums are the industry equaliser. it's the only place where juniors can be outspoken and vocal.

Perhaps, it's impossible to generalize. We're all different really. Regardless we need to keep the discussion civil.

I can assure you that I'm not a Junior, and the harshness of my comments are in direct disproportion to the amount of time and intelligence spent on any given advert. As a man who's passionate about advertising, and a lover of great ideas, it appalls me to see what was probably a good brief turned into... well, THIS, for example. I pity anyone who doesn't feel as strongly, for they are surely without enthusiasm for their job.

The time for niceties and subtle critiquing is when adverts are simply black and white scamps. Once they're in production and effectively out of the door, it's then left to the whole word (and not just us industry folk) to either adore them or quite deservedly rip them to pieces.

As much press as they've managed to attract, I really would expect something fresh from David & Goliath. This is painfully derivative and far below the mark. Stick with the hamsters already.

They don't mean that the customers are the sheep...they mean the other vehicle companies are the sheep....as in 'the kia soul breaks convention'
Seemed easy enough to understand........I guess it's just me.

Gotta love their shameless attempt to explain the ad in the notes.

Hmm. Whatever you do, don't be a sheep, or pawn or fish or robot. Be unlike everyone else and buy an SUV!

Oh ... wait.

when you make such harsh comments, back it up with a great ad that YOU yourself have created.

this is not by any means an originally idea...granted you have passion for advertising, you should also back it up with a stronger strategy
