In that case copy is more explanatory, here copy is confusing, yet good art.

The copy doesn't make sense. Or the visual doesn't.

Lovely idea. The art direction needs work though. Retouching is not great.

Keep crafting it for awards.

This is made for the Singaporean context. If you've come to this part of Southeast Asia you'll notice the unusual number of house lizards in all the nooks and crannies of the buildings.

Nobody kills lizards here because we believe they kill the insects (which are in huge quantities, so you know).

This is an ad that works well in its context. I like the insider joke.
