I'm wondering if that number will mean anything to someone reading this who doesn't know that 1 billion sharks translates to 270,000/day. and that sharks are fast becoming an endangered species due to poachers and demand for shark products. (shark fin soup for example)
other than my slight jab at the copy, i like this ad.

I agree, a little to much in the killed sharks thing but still a good ad

Lovely art direction but I agree about the copy. More than a bilion for a year? Wow...where did they found that fact?

It is 100 million not 1 billion. And for your information, the banner means 'King Of (shark) Fin', which, is a delicacy for chinese.

liar - thanks for clearing that number up. i just did some searching on the web and found the correct number, 100 million on "neil4sharks.org" as well as on a few other shark preservation websites. I wonder if the copy was just mistranslated. it's still a staggering number of sharks being slaughtered. and it's still a good ad.

amazing ad... i've seen, the best of ads mostly are those that expose life-like ground level truths, with an idea like this. good job
