The image carries the day here but a payoff from the copy would have been nice.

Very boring. Creative team must be like "oke let's show it's so though, you can, ehm, well, put all sorts of things on it!"

I really don´t think its intended to be as litteral as u put it. What lies on top are not particularly the weights of the objects per sé, but the experiences you go through with ur phone, and thus its resistance to it. But I do agree that this perecise one does lead u to what u say.
Beautiful retouching, impecable job in that sense, way over the concept itself, but the visual reminds me WWF (though this one is far better done)

You should look at your work first dear, just a tip.

This, now this is what Bau tossed off the back deck of the Haus before he had company over. How can you quibble with an image this DeMille? Superbly realized horror vacui. A bit beyond worry over weak headlines or dubious concept. It's a thang.

That's it.

Well, if there is an award for best Photoshop job, this would deserve a Gold.

The idea is so-so. That being said, I will remember what the ad was for.

The idea is nice, but for me it has one BIG problem.

If this is the first Land Rover phone in history, as a costumer, I would like to see it.
And I don't.
It's just a little element ar the bottom of the page.

Would have been more believable if they'd parked an actual Land Rover on top of a phone and taken a photo. This is just a dumb "let's exaggerate the benefit" idea. Nice art can't hide a crap concept.

And the product looks like... oh well. No URL either? Pass.

I think, therefore... yeah.
