It's basically a metaphor for a book. You get a piece of information from one page and the story continues on the next.

I guess it just teases you to read the book; The intriguing visual makes you wanna read, at least untill page 239 :)

Another ad using the infamous Statue Of Liberty submerged! Didn't I see that one in a Planet of the Apes film in 1968?

stop complaining, luxor markers just won gold for press @ Cannes, though they used Che Guevara & Hitler made out of words.... how original. Che & Hitler.... compared to them, the statue of liberty is not so used :p

lovely work. subtle enough for finicky pseudo-intellectuals to feel like the ad agency understood their sensibilities, broad enough to intrigue a wider audience.

Alistair luxor won because it used Che and Hitler smartly. That creative was a result of months of laborious efforts. First make the effort of taking a look at that ad before you criticise it.
if you had said something about the grand prix i'd have understood because it really baffles me how such a campaing can win the grand prix.

While the Planet of the Apes reference is indeed a good one, it was topped in the 1970's at the University of Wisconsin.
