I'm getting lost with these. The animals are being strangled? Please explain, nicely if you can.

didn't really get it, the more oil we get out of earth, the more life there will be on the ground?

You read it the wrong way. You have to include the minus and plus signs.

- fuel + life = ( less fuel, more life )

PRIUS is a hybrid car, so it makes perfect sense.

This ad still fails with me. It's not clear right away and even after reading and re-reading what you wrote, it still isn't clear. I understand what you're saying, but I can't see how that translates into the ad. The image is just too awkward and negative appearing and that's too hard to overcome.

The only connection I can make with the negative and positive mentions, plus the color scheme and harsh line, is that it looks like a battery. It's the Duracell color scheme. So that part makes sense - but it seems accidental, since the other variations use off-colors.

So, the rope is white (life). Will the deer be free without oil?

The oil rig's long pipe (white line) transitions into a noose to hang the deer.
The deer represents nature, earth, wildlife.

Thus.. demand for fuel destroys nature.

Thus.. less fuel (Prius is a hybrid) equals more life.

As in, call to action, save the wildlife, buy a Prius.

C'mon people.
