I saw this a while ago, it's beautiful though a bit hard to grasp at first. Nevertheless this shows how execution can define an ad. Superb.

That is what happens when a dog can't find a pay phone.

awwwwww.... sex sells, cute animals too.
sorry, but i don't fall for animals.
ads like these always seemed a bit lazy to me.
i prefer idea driven ads with strong concepts

I totally agree!!
Did you notice that if you turn it upside down and stare at it with one eye closed for 21 seconds 9.62" away from the screen, you see a hidden message? Pretty creepy!

Try it.

just because people like the photo doesn't mean they will remember who the ad is for. this series proves that (I bet that 99% of people don't recall the advertiser 3 secs after they saw the ad).
nice photo doesn't make a nice ad.
festival material that don't stand a chance in the real world. waaaaaaaaaay off imho.

Stupid analogy. Product is bolted on to a very unstable idea

Strip. Strip. Strip.

Nice art direction but I don't think that this idea sells. No USP, just a nice campaign. And does anybody remember the taxi number after seeing this ad?

WTF???? I haven´t seen these when they posted, now that i did... WTF?? Why is this any good??
because the puppie is cute? come on everyone!!

either i´m completely lost here and missing something really great, or this is just a "cute" picture of a puppie that has no home to go to... and that´s all. SO???

maybe calling a taxi would help the dog?

oh god sorry but i was really surprised when i read the comments.

these days you can´t know what people will think about an ad, definitely... that´s why agencies send like 200 pieces to a festival (let´s see what happens "strategy").
Bah!!
