What? This is not good. Its well produced student work, and I see all the creatives who worked on this have posted their comments.

Alright I looked at it again and will concede its not terrible. But russian dolls seem very first thought/studenty. But the idea is nice.

I feel really stupid looking at this ad. Perhaps I'm not worldly enough. But what is the idea behind this?

Don't feel stupid!
It's those russian dolls that fit into one another. The smaller dolls have flags of other countries who evidently seek refuge inside Scotland (the biggest doll with the flag of Scotland on it)
Get it now?

It's the other countries hiding in other countries that may be confusing it a tad.
Would have made a cool "Stop People Smuggling" starting point.

What's the real, deep-down, dark-place, problem here, BBFMF?

Is it a BBFMFing mother issue?
Your BBFMFing father?
Self conscious of your BBFMF fattness?
Teased about your BBFMF bigness?
Resented for your BBFMF badness?

Time to let all that BBFMFness go, pal.
Just not here, amongst all your mates, okay? ;)

this might have worked if the refugees were going to russia. then again, probably not. as already pointed out, the logic doesn't quite work. beyond that, it's a pretty expected idea. and if the first few posters really are the creatives who worked on it, i just want to slap them.

Don't you mean "spank" them? Or is that too expected?
We don't need to be abusive to other posters. We are all allowed our own opinions. You can disagree with them without violence.

It's an ad from the Scottish Gov. Highlighting the "Refugee Week" event.

It makes sense that the dolls all fit into the Scottish one.

After you piped up about the top four comments, mine included, I had a look at what you were saying, and although we may not agree entirely, I think you made a valid point in saying that this execution may not be the best way to convey the message.

Buuuuuuuuut, looking at the ad again it makes Refugee Week seem like an event, like that whole Live 8 thing, but smaller.

Which is better than looking at it and feeling guilty.

But that's just me and apparently I did this soooooo......yeah thanks.

Hey Spanky,

I looked this one up for you;

arse-ritis n. medic.

Affliction affecting long-term jobseekers which is characterised by stiffness in the buttocks and legs. Usually caused by sitting down all day watching 'American Chopper', 'Mega Machines', 'Monster Garage' and 'Mas-sive Engines' on the Discovery Channel. And then again an hour later on Discovery +1.

I hope for your sake you're not a copywriter. Though your knowledge of white-trash TV is quite impressive. And telling.

Drag out a gag, make an amusing reference.

Look at the comments, the first 5 make this ad sound like it just ended the worlds problems. So its not being abusive, everyone can have an opnion and not be harked on for it, but when it looks like the creatives covertly commented on it, that deserves a little abuse.

I respectfully disagree. Those posters have been around longer than yourself and I'm fairly certain that just because someone likes an idea doesn't automatically mean that they were the ones who published them. And they certainly do not deserve to be slapped. Unless it's on the bum, playfully.

There actually aren't alot of refugees from Palestine in Scotland, perhaps thats why they are not represented here.
