So many people involved for so little idea. Grey Singapore, maybe you should give the salaries of all those involved to a team who can come up with a decent ad. This campaign just waisted my time. FIVE TIMES!

Talentless? Come on guys, I agree that there isn't much of an idea, but they are nicely art directed.

If there's no single clear focus in the ad, be it a headline, a key visual or even a logo (yes, sometimes the logo can be part of an ad concept), then it falls under the category of "visual diarrhea" in my book as well.
I completely understand the target mindset and the look the creatives were going for. But man, this is just way too busy for my taste. A handful of the U.S. agencies are also guilty of constantly producing this type of work no matter what their client. And that's a shame...

Ok writing, nice graphic. But, I agree with Jet Propulsion Lab, it needs focus.

I disagree with the hate mob on this one. It works.

I don't "hate" it. That's a pretty strong word if you ask me.
I'm not saying it doesn't work, either.
It just feels "all over the place" and sometimes I'm annoyed by it.
I usually like a lot of the work coming out of Singapore and UK because of their clean look. Their style of storytelling. Their taste in typography.
I felt a little disappointed when I found out this work was also from there...
