The idea is creative but I think you should give the other babies some closes, like suits...

If you did it, it would be perfect.

Nice job anyway!

Wrong concept... this can also mean that only one baby will have a job.

Simple ideas are the best !

Eeeeh, racist much? Also, why aren't the white kids in clothes too? So that's telling me they don't even have jobs?

Horrible.

You guys are over anal-izing like a bunch of stupid AEs. These work. Solid campaign.

Wow how did you know the white baby on the left is destined to become a football player?

And white people are never victims of racism. Isn`t that a new form of racism, really - calling you a racist because you`re white, even if you`re a newborn

I think that these ads are terrible. Maybe I am being naive, but these ads would have been more appropriate back in the 19th century but not these days. And if it is true for our current times then shame on everyone. Is racism still really that rife!! Anywayhe looks more like a paramedic than a road worker.

I think some of your are over analyzing the campaign.
As a graphic designer I feel the concept is solid.
The message is clear and the photography and art direction are well executed, in order for the viewer to understand the ad right away.
