i like this idea. but at the second time there are some problems.
There are two things, they show...
first one ist that driving a bike
second one is that the panda and not a jaguar?

and the panda have to be at the front of the bike not at the backside ?

Yes, it's a panda – probably because WWF has a panda as their logo. A jaguar would be more suitable on a Jaguar than on a bicycle.
Furthermore, the photo is showing the front of the bicycle, not the back, so everything is as it should be.

The panda is at the front. And why should they be showing a Jaguar, which we associate with a car?

Great campaign!

Are you people smoking something? Am I missing something?
"Brilliant?" Is there a difference between the two ads other than day and night? Just wondering..?

@Ramezani (& atb2005)

II agree, I'm getting a mixed message here: Why the bicycle and the change in mascot together? Surely this would've worked better on the Jaguar car itself? A sleeping hood ornament, perhaps?

And since when do bicycles have those ornaments anyway?

It's a "car free" day. That means no cars, public transportation, etc (nothing that emits C02) That's why they used a bicycle here. As for the bicycle mascot, that's WWF's mascot, the panda. Its use here is strictly artistic; don't read too much into it :-) Or yon can think of it as using a bike is just as luxurious as driving a car

Should have use a plane like last time. Would have made a nice ornament ;-)

Why the same ad twice?

atb2005 said it.
Its the hood ornament swich that makes this idea good. Although i agree the two ads are to similar to eachother.

I would actually see this as a campaign for luxury bicycles, or that bicycles can be just as luxurious, rather than pointing to not use a car. Nevertheless - it's a clean and elegant ad.

i can't even spell my name without 'ad'

bit ordinary. two of the same executions does not make a campaign.
