I haven't seen this campaign before. And I like it a lot!
It totally taps into the whole disappointment sentiment associated with visiting a zoo and not getting what you came for...

Personally, I'd rather not see the animal AT ALL. No tail, no beak, no paw, no nothing. Simply showing an empty habitat (just a "suggestion" of an animal) would do the job and be even funnier with the line. But that's just me.

A very deceptively simple and yet smart campaign.

Ya I agree with Jet Propulsion Lab, seeing nothing would be better.

Agree with 'JPL'.
And why on the rest of the campaign they add the word 'simply'?
But I would give it 10/10

Let me see if I get this?

The message of this ad is 'Come to our zoo and there's a good chance that you'll come for nothing so make sure you buy a season ticket. That way, we can keep ripping you off until you may be lucky enough to catch a quick glimpse of the left nut of one of our exotic animals'.

Yeah, absolutely brilliant... I mean... erm...

wait...

Although it's a great piece of work, we've seen it before. Didn't we Ivan? I think it's reposted. Btw, it's really really nice. Kudoz to the team!

there are better ways, i think , to sell tickets than showing a shy animal and tug at people's disappointments. dont you think people'd rather go to the movies than come back tomorrow with this? funnu though.
