only catholics and anglicans wil get the idea. but anyway what about cardinal sins? [lust, gluttony, greed, sloth, wrath, envy and pride]
is it only minor sins (dirt) can be forgiven (washed off) by this product ?

anyway to be honest i love this idea.

it's a bit out there. I don't think ordinary housewives will get this right away. It's an ad for ad people...

i like this ad but it's one of those ads that was done to impress fellow creatives by, "thinking outside the box". sure, we are all for it but if doing so makes you forget to SELL the product to the intended market then you've missed the point. Advertising is COMMERCIAL art.

If it's really just about washing away sins, then it's too easy.
I'm not impressed.

Im catholic, or at least use to be.... sorry, it doesn´t work... It´s good if an ad makes you think, not that it makes you think you are stupid because you don´t get it.

I still don't get this ad, but I have to say it's a success. I mean, take a look at the size of the discussion it created!!! most ads here don't get more than 5 comments!

we get it or not, we like it or not, either way. at the end of the day, what counts is that this ad stirred enough emotion to get a heated debate going. thumbs up!!!

Guest's picture
Guest

yep! I agree!

i'm jews.. i dont get it

Demasiado obvio y básico. Parece una primera idea de un estudiante de publicidad. Donde está lo realmente creativo???

crazy!

Guest's picture

Absolutely brilliant! Al though got nothing to do with sins in the way you are thinking about.

Guest's picture
Guest

Really good. But really fake.

Guest's picture
Guest

so that's why people prefer to use ASE instead of Vanish...or do I think this way because I'm Procteree?

Guest's picture
Guest

i don't get it....

Someone please, PLEASE explain to me this ad.
Write to me: puravme@gmail.com

no entiendo.

nose. pensando (MUCHO) puede hacer analogia a la puerta de un lavarropas. pero falta un poquito de ayuda para entenderlo mas.
no se como es la sociedad polaca con el tema religioso.
= esta bastante mal montado. tiene varios errores que por tener q verlo mucho para entenderlo dan a vista los errores.
en un momento supuse q los agujeros negros tenían algo, nose.

si una publicidad la tenes q mirar por 3 segundos y no la entiendes, fue no funciona. y si hay q mirarla por mas, hay que ponerle mucho enfasis en la realizaxion.
