Exactly.
When it gets to be this outrageous, the ad loses its charm. I liked their (Stihl's, not the agency's) earlier, more quieter "single-leaf" ads a whole lot better.

Maybe it could be better if just a small part of the space were visible.

Would it be too picky of me to point out that "Stihl" is pronounced "steel" and not "still".

Kinda changes things about the ad for me. Makes it a bit more of a stretch than it already is.

Hmm. Good idea. Art direction could use refining.

Seen this strategy for so many things, golf ball on the moon b/c it flies further etc etc etc. And trying to disguise lazy thinking with art direction doesn't make it any less lazy.

Done by DDB Paris with just a leaf on the moon... So, this one is a bad declension.

Ok what about a leaf on red martian soil, shot through the lens of the mars lander. Topical, and mars is real far.
