Pretty good :)

I'm assuming this is just a translation for critique, but if it's to be used in English, you'd maybe want to make some small changes to the copy.

I don't like it. Looks too cheap to represent VW. Feels like they are selling fruit gushers or something.

Absolutely.

Caught in just the right humor, the people who frequent this site would show this series no mercy.

Must be the time of year.

Hate catching sight of the comments first.

Don't know how I feel about this one now.

The idea is really good, but the execution is incredibly bad. Doesn't look like a VW campaign, reminds me of any type of student work in early career. It is so sad to see a good idea to be wasted that way.

WOW. Two very similar campaigns. I bet in the previous campaign.

Just a heads up, Jully!

Ivan loves to post similar campaign executions, close to one another.

Keeps us on our creatively objective toes :)

You're right Roger.

But have you seen any of these?
I often see many blogs and this is the first time I saw either of them. I imagine it must be really frustrating for both teams have an idea, approve it and suddenly you discover that someone across the world simply had the same idea at the same time.

Of course we are all behind the new ideas, and while you do not see anything like what you just thought, leads you to believe that your idea is new.

I hope this will not happen to me, I had a brilliant idea this morning, so far at least ;-)))

That's our challenge, Jullyart! Coming up with THAT original idea.
We have to keep those brilliant ideas coming, and sooner or later...! :)

Execution not up to VW standards ...

It the message more than anything. I really love the idea + the wow execution. Is it less classy for VW, maybe yes but who cares. The scenario dramatizes the benefit of the product, and it is not fair to kill it just because it doesn't fit the assumed "identity" of BW.

Not a great campaign. Poor execution and not in the typical VW way.

I concur with the poor execution, the illustration would make a cool bubblegum ad but its not for VW
