These are becoming a classic at festivals, huh? like the Weru windows, the Mapa gloves and the 42 Below vodka ads. I think is good to create a concept so strong that it has continuity over the years (like the Absolut vodka), after all, that's why we are getting paid for, to build brands based on a consistent communication. The thing is... that it becomes less surprising, but, this is not the case with this campaign, these ads are always funny.

Other good example (in my opinion) are the playstations campaigns, that even when the concept changes (evolution, your own world, the passion, explosion of the senses...) you can always tell, even without looking the logo that it is a playstation ad.

I believe that the "original" ads (Cut your brush - Cannes 2004) are from DDB Paris.
I feel that this campaign here is trying (without success) to be a follower.
Don't like the idea, bad retouching.

I absolutely LOVED their print campaign with a vacuum cleaner salesman, a pizza delivery guy, etc.
I really don't care for the over-the-top visual schtick of this campaign. The whole thing feels very contrived, too.
I think DDB's campaign worked BRILLIANTLY because it quietly showed the aftermath, the ordeal that the "visitors" had to go through to get to your front door. And their facial expressions were those of pain, exhaustion, regret all mixed together. But very subtle. Just perfect. (and of course their completely shredded clothes!! :)

The best visual humor (in print work) almost always shows what's "about to happen" or what's "just happened", leaving the blank for the viewer to fill in. Tension and suspense are very much a part of comedy storytelling.

I don't hate this campaign. It just does NOTHING for me...

Absolutely brilliant. Wouldn't want to change a thing, except maybe put my name on it.

Firts I thought it was for a leaf blower and loved it, but than i see it's for a hedge cutter, and I think it's a bit contrived. Art direction is excellent though and superbly executed
