I am sorry for the poor cucumber!

I was born and brought up in Iran, a beautiful country full of history.

hehe. It would be cool to prolong tension if the cucumber escaped first to the bathroom and vomited all over... and then hide into the refrigerator... very nice!!!

Hold your horses, this is not creative. Creative means subtle and this is too vulgar to be good. It actually sucks big time, unless you are 15 years old, male, and known among your buddies as Zitface.

"Zitface", now that's creative... good job buddy.

It's always reassuring to see how many people are the absolute last word in "creativity". Thank goodness for opinions like yours... without that sort of self-righteous certainty, Hitler would never have invaded Poland.

Um, I tried looking for a place where Creative meant Subtle.

The spots is creative form the POV that communicates something in an unexpected way. I like it. It's creative and positions Sara's Secret as a creative erotic shop.

Um, I tried to look for a source where Creative means Subtle. but couldn't find it.
I like the spot because it communicates the benefit in an unexpected way. That, to me is what creativity is all about.

I was messing with Temple's comment (above mine).

I don't think creative has to mean or be subjected to subtlety, although it can work (and does some times) that way. I actually think that being stuck to that conception can lead to loosing great and simple ideas that can actually work. Although, has I said, there can be great advantages to some brands in maintaining subtlety in their brand communication.

Also, I agree with what you've stated; "(..) communicates the benefit in an unexpected way.", although I think it often has to be more to it than just the "surprise effect". So.. it could be a good debate. =)

I just want to ask the age-old question – doesn't the light go off inside the refrigerator once the door is closed? ;)
