In a Mistubishi Lancer, even if you are speeding, police chasing you in their cop mobile would seem riding a kid's tricycle...??!!

Now am I correct? or reading too much?

You're damn right vidya. It seems quite hard to get for some, according to the comments below. I got it instantly and find it funny, though the art could be better.

In a Mitsubishi Lancer, the superbikes of the cops looks like a Kid's tricycle... because the "power" of the car??.... c'mon its not too difficult

Wouldn't it be funnier if he was on the trike?

but then they might actually need to take the photo themselves, instead of cruft a bunch of stock images together.

I don't know, to me the cop on a bike metaphor for fast anything has been abused too much.

Exactly. It was my first thought too, and actually the second "correct" interpretation is less obvious. Maybe these guys work secretly for Suzuki?

I like the idea but this ad also can be used to promote the VW GTI.

maybe he should have had a speeding radar camera with him?
the small tricycle does not look like it belongs to the cop.

very great idea.
If the car outlook could be place with the tag must me better.
however, the image is too quiet, some speedy elements would be added could be more interesting.

Bad, bad, bad.
Whoever the retoucher is, he/she should hang up their mouse and tablet.
Where to start, bad shadows, lighting's all over the place the perspective is way off. I agree with GANGIN, it may have actually, have been worth consideration if the execution wasn't sooo awfull. This is the "We'll fix it in post" mindset, just didn't pay off this time.
Should have been done on location instead attempting to cobble it together digitally.
As for done ideas, 80% of what we work on is a new take on an old idea. At least if it's well done you can appreciate the artwork.

usually i support every pleading for good photography and proper retouching. but this is actually not that bad. ok some bad shadows... ok light overall... but it surely doesn't ruin the whole ad. still at least 5/10.

okkay 4.2 then.
Mitz are not short of a quid or two, so the budget has leeched away somwhere. Even a mildly talented person, with basic retouching skill could have made a better job!

Given them a pair of scissors and some glue, probably still could have made a better job.
So many out there with real skill, no excuse.

This is good. I think it works perfectly well. Good job guys!! Plus I don't remember seeing this concept before, which is amazing for a classical subject as this one. But I might be wrong... :-)

done. a man at the traffic lights in his sports car, the guy next to it is on a tricycle.
don't remember the brand.

at first sight it gives me the impression that lancer is slow, you just need a tricycle to chase it... and I am not the only one am I right... If so this means that the ad is trash... I didint like it... come on guys it is mitsubishi lancer... it is a classic... this ad is wrong and too weak...

Me gusta la idea, pero el photoshopazo se ve mal.
Imagino que utilizaron un policia vestido así para que la pieza se vea mas internacional.

Me parece muy buena idea un recurso distinto para decir en los tipicos avisos de foto que un auto es rapido. tal vez solo se tenga que retocar un poco mejor al policia. Arreglando eso, esta fenomena.
