Watch this too.

well Nayel, I would agree with u if this business had only to send a message not using an "original art direction" but than all of us are jobless.
Or maybe u need to see same logo for beer and shoes, or same poster for food and dipers...

I don't think that they use chaplins silhouettes on their cheap example boards on the butte Montmartre anymore.

@ Sirvan: It's no Hitler. It's Chaplin.

I love it. The other ads have just not using the same insights. I think that there is a lot of work here. This image talks about sound and silence using icons. That is the strenght of the ad, although it would probably be very difficult to find some other icons to illustrate the same concept. But, who cares? It is already enough with one original.

This ad deals with silent movie. How can they NOT use Chaplin?

one can make too many comment

but when he will have to handle this subject, eventually he will have to surrender to chaplin

this subject has million solutions. And what u r saying is surrendering the creativity of this business.
chaplin can be used in milion of ways, not the same graphics like before.
U can make an orchestra of chaplin's playing, make him as conductor, make him whatever u like..just dont repeat whats done.
