See what you can switch on, when the screen is off.

Indonesian children spent almost 5 hours everyday watching television. It's
more than twice the maximum duration that was suggested. This print campaign
is made to promotes a healthier television watching habit for children.

Get it, got it. Could flip to a searing indictment of personal computers without a glitch.

IN MY opinion it's about taking care of children...Children who has a dream (dc violin in this case) but parents are always "too busy" to pay attention to them... It's UNICEF though
Maybe it's not very clear 'cause we can also think that the child's dream is to be broadcasted on tv ... and it's not very corresponding to unicef values... but i like it

Ehy Dudes...in my opinion the ad is aimed to sensibilize parents to pay attention to son's passions such as music in this case... The message is obviously "switching off tv in order to watch the real show...ur son..." in spite of being "too busy with the tv"
Great realization but copyrighter could have found a more impactant/direct phrase.
What do u think ?

Nice!
Finally they trip on tv, instead of always criticizing the computer.
TV is a bigger danger for people than the computer.
