Wow! This is a spectacular campaign idea and beautifully executed. It demonstrates a truly insightful perception of the problem behind the problem. Bravo!

It's very similar to this one : http://adsoftheworld.com/media/print/sea_shepherd_conservation_society...
Even if the one of Paris is a bit better...

Witty and on-target. Yeah, the Paris one -- this one -- is better for accomplishing the same basic point with a light touch that draws you in instead of snuff film gore that repels you from looking.

The idea was first executed in Quebec city as a guerilla marketing for a restaurant (Sushi Taxi) who have dropped bluefin tuna of his menu.

Otherwise, great execution for a print.

I think the execution in Quebec was lame. The argentinian ad, on the other hand, was kinda cool but I get the feeling it misses the point by comparing the pandas to the handicap. This idea used here is way better than both of the other examples. good work guys!

I just love what WWF did.
And what they've been doing.

I posted this one to Jamie Oliver, because I think it goes hand in hand with his idea to give a break to overfished species (Jamie's Fish Suppers)

It's interesting that the Panda ad has garnered the most facebook likes. Goes to show that people love pandas indeed.

It doesn't matter even if this idea is done several times in the past, but what matters is the effect on people. So I think this ad is a nice peice of work.

Blatant copying of student work from 2009? You decide:
