visually creative and pleasing. but to an issue like this, the copy is just too bland. "Do Something" is too open ended. You guys could've told what could be done i.e. be proactive, instead of just saying "Do Something".

"Something"? Sigh, there's nothing as frustrating as a vague call to action.

shouldn't it be the pin that is made of ice. visually doesn't really make sense

nice point art.vs.commerce - in this case, maybe the pin would have worked as being made of ice. Nice concept nevertheless

"Danger melts itself". Let's wait...

If try the slightly other way - i.e. an ice hand, holding trigger-suspender, or some.. ?

I think some people are confused here. Danger is not melting as in disappearing. Think of the "melting" here as the time it takes for a grenade to explode (we are all in danger) after release. Concept is wonderful, and so is copy. There's a web link provided. VIsit the site for more information. The purpose of this ad was not to provide a lengthy list of things you can or you should do about global warming.

concept is fabulous. copy and especially the call to action is ineffective. If i saw this ad i wouldn't know what action to take to "do something."

The call to action is to visit their website. Most campaigns are exactly like this one. Brief copy + web link.

Beautiful artwork. Flawed logic behind the concept. Dreadful copy.
