I love it, but shouldn't the motorcyclist and the black car move just a tiny bit?

Except for a slight paunch on Clark Kent, this is a terribly good ad. Man!

Whilst I agree the creative execution is super, what is this "insight" you speak of? The ad explains the fast capture ability of the product, but as far as I can see there's no interesting insight into the target here.

Surely the insight is that you can now capture things you would otherwise miss - certain to resonate with any photographer.

Maybe the bike should be moving a bit in every frame... but that is just a detail.

Awesome work.

Great concept, and funny. But if I was Superman, what's the point going inside a booth made of glass to change? If I can't do it in a hidden place, I'd rather do it in the middle of the street, I'd have more space to remove my clothes! :)

Valid point Cooxie. But it's so funny that people will ignore that little fact.

Between the 4th & 5th frame, they should feature the Superman with his hand in the underwear adjusting his dick, hahaha.

Do you all work at TBWA? This ad is really bad. The art direction is terrible, and the idea is weak. I'm pretty sure tbwa did a team effort to come here and do positive comments on this ad. It looks like student work. I No offense to students.

Huges your a dick,
In what way is the art terrible, is it the white space, have you seen the " 8 frames in a row" execution done better, you dont like the logo use. back up your comments if your going to have a go at it.

We've all seen allot of bad professional work, so students shouldn't always be the fall back excuse if an idea doesn't look polished, or developed.deeper. Plus this idea kicks ars.

Kick rocks Dick.

Yes we all work at TBWA, you caught us, we actually had a meeting this morning and MR TBWA himself told us all to go to ads of the world and praise this ad.

-Nice ad by the way

simple way to demonstrate the benefit. winner. now turn it into a campaign.

i see the campaign:
- a old woman posing to photo smiling, she laugh so muth that her set of teeth pull of!
- a boy and a dog posing, the boy hold an ice-cream, smiling... POW, dog eat the ice-cream, last pic: boy crying.
- some old-fashion guy posing with 3 young women close to her convertible car, a bus pass very fast and, POW, the wig go away.
- a fat family sit on a park bench posing for a pic, POW, bench is on the ground, and family too.
- some guy posing to show how good body he have, but the 8 pics take he shrinking the belly.

well, there are many other possibilities, even better than my examples, i think.

i like this aproach and concept a lot, congrats to the team!

They're good moments but generic, to run with this in a campaign, you could use other more iconic imagery. A few ideas are; the bone toss in 2001 A space odyssey, the ali/liston knockout, the moonlanding first step, Janet Jackson's tit popping out etc.

Saying 'done' without saying where, has been done to death.

We're going to need more lube.

Unfortunately, this Pentax model produces only 3 images per second in the shooting mode...
Still love the ad though.
