Yes it is a nice ad, but this idea has been done before.

I like the linked one in terms of layout and colors better.

ain't it embarrasing when you got caught copying?

It is. But we don't know if this is the case here. I think entirely possible that both of them came up with the same idea independently.

research, research... brazil did it in 2002!! when you come up with such a simple and great idea, you think maybe it´s done precisely because it´s so simple... and you do a little research.

...and then you eat your shoe because you find out it HAS been done... painful :)
Colours in this one idd less than linked one. Maybe it would have been better if only he wasn't wearing such dark clothes... now it seems like he's carrying the tree on his back :)

i think its pretty easy to get.. no layout problem.. maybe hitchhike is just not common for all countries...

It mus have sucked to find out one day that someone published your exact idea...

Yeah, there is an old spot with a porcupine crossing the road and getting scared -and so, smaller- when it hears the noise of an arriving Land Rover. But nothing really appears because the LR is offroad. By TBWA Barcelona, I think.

Anyway, this one tells the same but different, and in a graphic. Nice.
