Your comment is like astrology. It can be everything or nothing at all.

Sorry. i didn't intend to sound like a sage. I will clarify.

I see the intention here to make a funny ad. But i think thats not accomplished.

perhaps i feel that way, cause i've lived in dortmund for some time and know that concert hall. it's mainly for classical music and it was built with awesome acoustics. In my personal opinion, they miss the target completely with that ad and ignored a real issue in favor of making a generic idea that had best fit some independent recording studio or something.

Ah, but Wordnerd - you are a sage, aren't you.

Mark my word, It is mildly humorous for a German ad. Trust me on this old sage dude.

@ Wordnerd:
To me "A place where music feels at home" says great concert hall, great acoustic, great music.

What else do you want?!

Yeah, right! The line says it, the ad doesn't. That's what i don't like about it. it doesn't feel right.

go on love it! that's great. I don't hate you for it, you know. ;)

well I might be "joking" beatboxer- my friend-, I'm in a good mood today..
but, on the other hand, music can feel at home in a music store, a cool hip hop music store or a classical music store, piano class, music feels at home in my car, my house, my ipod..

I laughed when I saw the campaign, it won't leave my head for some time for sure, I kinda like it..
but didn't feel it tells me anything of the purpose..

cheerz!

I am COMPLETELY in agreeance (is that a word?) with Wordnerd.

This is just the wrong style for a concert hall that hosts classical music. Look - it's cute for a rock hall, or for an ad for a TV music station, but so very wrong for this place. Notes scratching their asses? Passed out from drinking? Who approved this? Are you sure it's not student?

If you _have_ to use this then do a photo-realistic shot of a note sitting in a bathrobe in an armchair with its feet up on an automan, reading a newspaper. Show a mature couple eating breakfast being served pancakes by a note in a chef's jacket. Anything to get across the classiness of the hall - subtle humour - just not this.

PLEASE STOP THAT DISCUSSION. There is a world out there, where ideas are made for awards and not for real. I think it misses the style of classical concert halls... but it might hit some juries. And that`s the reason why of this campaign

one should always try to show something that (probably) hasnt been there before. musical notes scratching their buttholes sounds a lot more fun to than having it sit in an armchair with a glass a cognac (well to me at least).

things that seem more appropriate often arent as much fun as those slightly past the target. leave overtly correct strategy to daily buisness and clients, willya?

I love the simplicity of these ads. The illustration style doesn't get in the way of the idea (which can sometimes happen). They made me laugh. Simple as that.

Just an award idea. Made for awards. not for the Concert hall. If it had been a Mobile Toilet ad, it would have been:

"Where farts feel at home"
