The (heroin) needle will destroy the balloon, which represent your child. So save your child by preventing them from drugs.

For me the visual metaphor is really powerful. Well done

In my opinion, this ad is just sort of strange and not really that helpful... I don't know. I get the message, but it's sort of muddled. Don't really care for this one...

Nothing wow but I guess this will do the job, considering it targets the mass. Not every neglecting parent has the time/brain to care for a more complicated ad.

really nice and touchy from the art direction to the copy.

I think copy should have been - to them before it`s too late.

When the needle destroys the balloon, there`s no way back, you can`t fix it. Either the copy or the art direction should have been more strong and shocking.

In any way, it doesn`t really work for me.

I like the idea very much. It's the execution that I'm not sure about. Maybe they should have went ambient! *Believe Dat*

I agree with Luikah on the copy, not good with this visual. "Going too far" with a baloon is completely different concept...
