Guess it was only a matter of time until someone did this oh so obvious motive. Well, here it is. Useless.

Thanks Tom

It is the late "Alice", in Paris. The AD was Marc Otruba. The agency does no longer exist (it has merged and sunk in the "Lowe" galaxy-.

i forgot to say, it has been made 6 or 7 years ago. I believe it was issued in 2001.

Not keen on the art direction on this - looks like a five second scamp -but the basic idea is okay (not excellent, though).

An agency I know of once dared to use an idea based on the Olympic rings in a tiny local press ad - they got a letter from lawyers acting for the Olympic Committee. So best of luck to you if this is going to run anywhere.

Good idea, not so good execution.

Not new, not really good craftmanship... but respect for fucking the system. I guess you`ll see this motive quite often during the game. It will become famous althought its a really rough artdirection.

This ad is like a pun joke. When there's an opportunity for it, no matter how much you hate pun joke yourself, if it comes to you, and no one else is saying it, you just have to do it.

Reporters themselves think, they came from other planet. Media Pimps.

The whole of western world is preventing China from organising the Olympic smoothing by all these human rights propaganda. Have anyone forgotten the Iraq war or Guantanamo Bay? Who's taking about HUMAN RIGHTS now.

Politic aside, this is a lame ad with unjust agenda.

firstly, let me just say that reporters without borders is a cia front. secondly, id like to see someone brave enough to come up with such a logo for the u.s., as they have the most prisoners in the world. in fact, you are 6 times more likely to end up in prison in the usa than you are in china. but no one really has the guts to go there.
