It's easy to miss it but there is an idea here, look closely (yes the execution is bad)

I was thinking that the print was bad with a weird shadow effect but they are actually using the back of the knife, that's why they say "extremely sharp".

Pretty sure the idea is stolen though...

You're welcome.
I got lucky, thanks to Ads of the world ant it's non-existing app for smartphones I accidentely made a bigger close up than what I wanted, that's how I noticed.

Pretty sure that 90% will miss it since it's for print.

it's not advantage being the back of knife is sharp, it's dangerous

I thought maybe they dropped the fish and the fruit onto the knife? No? That made more sense to me altough the idea still is very "used".

Well, this one probably tops the fake ads 2012 category.

it took the whole page of discussion to figure out the idea.

If it needs this much discussion to figure out then it's not a great or good idea.
