For me it's interesting really.
A good intuition and a good production.
I like when advertising is simple.

DDB makes good works for Volkswagen.
This campaign is nice because the idea is simple and clear.
Brilliant visual expression.

Very confused.
Don't get the idea.

Quello che volevate dire: pneumatici che aderiscono bene alla neve.
Quello che questo visual dice: neve che aderisce bene sul finestrino (impedendo la visibilità e facendo schiantare la macchina).

Stop complimenting your own work or your friend's work.

nice visual, but wrong inside. snow should not stick on tires, windows or what ever...

Definitely a disconnect between copy and visual here for me. I agree that the visual is very, very nice, and even thought provoking, but the thought is wrong. What I get here is that "winter/snow sticks/grips to something," not improved tire grip. Suction cups on the tire would support the copy, but that's been done I think.

Not agree absolutely!!!
The message is clear if the tyre meets the snow and if the snow meets the tyre.
There is gripping ability in both ways.
This solution is nice, more interesting.
...when the tyre will meet the snow there will be a perfect union.
I understand this.
Good campaign. Good idea.

Come si fa a non riconoscere una obiettiva chiarezza del messaggio.
Come si fa a vederci il finestrino, come si fa
a parlare di incidenti ecc ecc...
Non scherziamo. Ragioniamo invece di inventare per forza un commento negativo.
Questa è una bella metafora.
Rappresentare visivamente che è la neve ad avere il potere di aderenza ad un pneumatico è ancora
più forte. A me piace. Non sbancherà sui tavoli delle giurie di Cannes ma fa la sua bella figura.
Complimenti comunque.

Quindi il fiocco a cosa è attaccato? All'aria?

E' una campagna sbagliata. Punto.

Avete voluto fare uno più uno (inverno più aderenza) ed è venuto fuori tre.

Punto.

The ad looks great. The image of a snowflake with a sucker cup is exquisite! However the logic of the ad is flawed in that quite simple one doesn't want snow to have improved grip! A major problem for a piece of communication!
