Pleasant, but it’s not particularly special.

Two good associations going on here for me: It's a smart old school ad like you'd have seen in Esquire 50 years ago, and then there's the nice, quiet little joke of positioning the people horizontally, as in a plate from a natural history book a century more before.

The copy's pretty cute too.

Yeah quite an old school ad.

It's quite interesting to see this kind of ads in 21st century.
I love the copy too.

Good enough to make you look, then you read and it makes you turn away.

So only White people eat fish then. This is an ad right out of the 60's. WEAK.

Try "1959/1960 all over again". Post it three times, and you're magic.

"fish eaters of the USA" would be better in this case…
