Reminds a poster from Lord of War.

This is creepily intriguing for geneology. It makes me think,"like the dust of the earth in multitude".

Good use of the tiresome bodies/body parts retouched into nouns genre.

Totally connected.

It would be safe to say a few fallen souls are in YOUR woodpile. I see the gene pool's working for you.

Great artwork. But it's not creative. Some many times done.

Nice art direction but zero innovation. It has been done several times... and is creepy for genealogy; so the message is mistaken.

But has it been done for genealogy?

Creating images out of other images has been done for centuries.

Creepy or not, this particular ad takes it to a different level. There's actually a reason for using millions of bodies, naked at that, to show someone's lineage. The creep factor makes it that much more philosophical.

This "done" rhetoric is getting old.

It would be so much more interesting to hear why you don't like it, or in the very least, show your examples.

Probably the worst ad I've ever seen. This is painfully bad. Is this even an agency? The people behind this should not be allowed to call themselves creatives.

An Ad that actually sustains an impact long after I have turned away.

Like it or not it works, oh & I do like it – I'm not sure why just yet though, once the nausea subsides I might work it out.

Tyger. You shouldn't slag something without giving reasons. Even though it may be a recycled idea the purpose behind it is to grab the attention of the consumer and do something a little different. I think for what it is, it is succesful and entertaining.
Tyger, you are a peanut.

Most of these negative comments are silly. The ad is supposed to provoke serious thought. If you're probably wasting time being offended and disgusted, it clearly wasn't made for you.
