the stool and that death tree in the vase stole the focus from what you're trying to communicate. if you wanna convey stubborn stains, the lighting shouldn't be this solf and dreamy. and the perspective doesn't have to be this dramatic. nothing outstanding, sorry.

I can agree that it is a little over-art-directed, but MT, a little surly aren't we?

Your comment is inspiring :).
This ad is cute, but the emotion is not enough.

I think Costa Rico is showing great thinking. I'm not particularly fond of the art direction (or long tedious copy), but great way to get the message across.

I hate visual puns. Stop fighting against stains. Turn the metaphorical into a literal. Run of the mill.

Silly proposition to start with. All down hill from here.

>>>> That's not an ad. THIS is an ad.

I hate it when the copy tells me exactly what I'm seeing.
