Do you also judge the quality of a movie by the typo on the subtitles?

Nope, I'd judge the quality of the movie by a poorly written script, or a careless attention to detail resulting in continuity errors, etc.

Whoever posted it made the typo. It's not the ad's fault. WTF are you guys upset about?

The ad translates more literally to "you have a lot to lose" rather than "too much to lose." That having been said, I like the fact that they only have things that matter (not sure about the car) in the center of the frame.

Leave it to the Quebec Government to tell you not to gamble but open up a few casinos and have thousands of VLT's across the province. But I digress...

It shows clearly that gambling problems have a direct impact on families. Well done.

Right. Got it. Having cards in car park as opposed to wife and kids on a table trumped me for a bit there.
Makes it feel a little aloof lurking on the edges of her environment. If they were on a table it would be more immediate.
No? Ok... fair enough.

Great, clear idea.

This execution is better than the 'snowman' one.

btw 'Lose' is correct in Aussie English'.

Loose = not tight, slack. ;)
