This notion and the line are not new literarily, but to make them an ad campaign is smart thing.

A footnote, isn’t the art too romantic for a tragedy like this?

Still it is a good campaign and Cannes is not far probability IMO.

too bad there no end point in this ad, such as donate or go to www.bla bla, surely make me want to donate good jo

speechless. hats off.

Guest's picture

Not feeling it - There is something about the colour manipulation that makes the whole thing feel a little bit too Hollywood photo-filtered / fake... and there is no call to action. What was this ad supposed to make me do? (Besides feel guilty for having my own problems of course.)

Guest's picture

uhm... maybe a little late this answer, but anyway... I think the colour filtering is intended to make you see that it's not real, something like a wishful thinking for the refugees... Just what you said, it's FAKE to believe that the refugees just have our same problems, that just having our problems would be a great relief for them...

Guest's picture

I like the art direction but i would like to have an explanation to something which has been appreciated so much by everyone. pls explain the msg.

Guest's picture

i don't really like it... it looks advertising gimmick for me, really like a "cowboy and indians" feeling, cliché...
