Hey Jeff,

I hope with audience you us ad-people. These ads will not change anything for tuna in the public eye. "Fish ain't got no feelins..."

Should be "Would you care more if I 'were' a rhino."

You can also use "was" here; it's just less formal.

In the hypothetical context, "were" should always be used.

Come on Ivan. You know better than this. Please be more selective in posting 'fresh' and 'unique' work.

i suppose it has been done before, but all the same, as a consumer of canned tuna myself this ad was moving enough for me to pick up the phone and make sure my bumblebee tuna didnt contain bluefin (it doesnt)

Well besides the shocking grammar and the link that everyone is posting to say its been done before. Not only is that true but this advert is a complete rip off of a student piece of work
that won many awards and was therefore in the media for all to see, or should I say for Ogilvy to see. Nice.

Come on, it's a pretty simple idea. Not surprising at all that multiple parties came up with it. I do think your execution is quite nice. (I'm assuming you worked on the 'original')

You have talent. Don't waste time and energy with this, move on and make more ads!
