Isn't this showing the opposite?

On a 25 x 31 grid, it's showing it has 775 (yes, I'm afraid I did), not 3,997 colours, so it's at least wrong on that score but yes Jack, I think it's also reversing the impression it's trying to make. If they're playing the irony card, they'll need some copy to steer the ad in the right direction.

Did you count the pixels? Really?......Well I guess not everybody is brain capable to understand that the number in the ad is just a metaphor to say :so many colors: in spanish the thing about the number is solved with the tag next to the logo. Colores en Paleta (so many f**ng colors). These are not "math" ads for christ's sake....these are PAINT + COLOR selling ads. Anyways.

"Guest", when "PAINT + COLOR selling ads" use maths to sell, I kind of like to check what I'm getting.

And if 775 is a "metaphor" for 3,997 then I'd like to be in your world where everyone's a motherf*cking metaphorical brain-capable millionaire.

Anyway.

"And if 775 is a "metaphor" for 3,997..." that half-sentence just made my day, thank you! I am a math freak as well, all my sympathy!

I like this campaign. It's not perfect, but I like it.
