Well, I guess if the background frame is freezed, then it's just a 'no brainer' post production work only....and lost the beauty of film crafting. I think this campaign is great, very conceptual.

The guys are suppose to be moving...it's part of the idea. DHL isn't literally fast, they're "deceptively" fast. Great ad!

I agree, it's a very nice concept, and yeah there should be some motion in the background, but the speed of motion of the frozen dudes is irrelevant. The DHL guy is so fast that everything else seems frozen (Or very very slow), yet the frozen ppl's motion is in real time, which makes no sense... get what i mean.

If it's slooooooooooooooow motion, then it can only be done in the post production but what the heck, it's just too easy.

It's super low tech. That's what makes this campaign so great and funny. You can even see some of the "frozen" guys blinking. And the DHL guys' reactions are a subtle "WFT?". This will win awards! Another great campaign for DHL.
