on the oceans theres no speed limit (not including the harbors), so to me this seems very forced.

Water says "boat", radar gun says "too fast". This resonates with me, but I am not knowedgable on the subject. I could see where the audience would dismiss this piece and less than insightful.

Why most of the Italian ad's are so yesterday...?

whats wrong with this ad?
And most of all who cares if it is an italian or a japanese or thailandese ad?
For me it works, maybe it is not the best ad ever, but it is clver and works very well on the Yamaha sea engine brand.
I like the execution, simple and effective.
Bravi.

Francesco, this only a not so good idea. It's forced, wrong, not so clever, because as someone else said, there is no speed limit on the sea.
If you base your ad on truth you will do best ads.

brainsugar,
I have to give you a tremendous news.
speed limits in the sea: they do exist.
at least for the italian laws.

look for it.

a better ad would have been a speed boat hidden behind a poster in the middle of the sea.

But I think it as already been done.

And why do I look for an ad based on a bad bassement?...

I like it and thought it was well pulled off. As a consumer if I were to see this in a magazine I'd get a chuckle, and most importantly, I'd get the impression that Yamaha had fast boats which is exactly what this Italian agency was trying to do. Nice work.

Its not genius but i think it delivers the correct message yamaha = fast plus its pretty to look at.
Some of the most awarded ads in the world are based on exaggerating the benefit not always truth
take the Nugget shoe polish campaign...one of the most awarded campaigns at Cannes.

Incognito Gigolo learn to read...I did not say its anywhere as good or close to the nugget campaign, I said it has the same mechanism of exaggerating the product benefit.

Yes but exaggerating the truth often wins awards like the nugget campaign...
realistically you wouldn't be able see a criminal around the corner on your shoe just like you don't get speed cameras in the middle of the ocean
= exaggerating the product benefits.

what truth is this exaggerating? there are no speed limits on water. and even if there were, i don't think the itallian coast guard would be dumb enough to try to catch them with a stationary object. in my opinion, this is bad student work with a relatively big budget.
