Interesting. Demonstrates the issue well, and in a fresh way. A little boring still, for some reason.

I like this ad.
I appreciate when there is some sort of engagement with print ads.

Very cool...even though I don't read the paper...or own an iPhone!

But can somebody tell me what the small text actually says? I can't make sense of it. Has anyone actually tried this out?

Very interesting as well as dynamic, good job.
Maybe the overcome could be a video followed linked to the company website instead of a flat image in the phone.

anyways, good job

Interesting idea. But I highly doubt anybody will bother to actually whip out their phone and waste 5 minutes of their time to try it. I know I wouldn't. I'd be like, "some boring ad in a magazine wants me to pull my phone out so I can read their lame headline??? Hell no."

F A K E .

1) "Now use your thumb to enter roadahead it into your phone's browser" can NOT be from the agency who brought the seriously excellent 'Enjoy the ride' campaign: ;

2) QR code?

3) I'm about done with this shit - next time I see an agency being misrepresented by some student scammer, I'm sending them the link to the page and a number for their nearest lawyer. This is creeping unprofessionalism, AOTW, and it's fucking galling.

4) Glad, as ever, to be shown I'm wrong.

wait.... so the pedestrians are only visible if you use the smartphone? I think the message is correct but the execution is just wrong. There should be a pedestrian crossing the road and when you use the phone he disappears.
