Simple juxtaposition of a problem that for most of us is so far away. It brings it home and hits hard. Great!

I think you just like it for its impact....as all the ads of this kind.

Guest's picture
Guest

It seems that was exactly the purpose of this ad, to be impactful and shock the public without direspectfully showing the real kids dying of thirst and famine with flies all over them. I believe they nailed it. Shocking, memorable, emotional.
