A really fun ad. I laughed on the one with the elephant.

way to rip an email joke.

while the original email was humorous, seeing it in this context is shameful to anyone working in the industry.

who ever the art director is, should hang his head in shame.

they basically just slapped the company logo on the original jpeg.

'where the ad industry shops?' more like 'where the ad industry shoplifts'.

if you're gonna bastardize an idea, at least TRY to come up with your own version or change something.

This was an email joke that's been circulating for about a year...

this is not creative... hardly "creative thinking"

anyone thinking of hiring these bozos ..turn and run

Just wanted to echo the the sentiments of the 2nd and 3rd comments. This campaign is a sad rip of a funny and clever internet meme.

This is a rip-off.

Here's creativity and out-of-the-box thinking I'd like to see proliferate:


If only because it will contribute more than just entertainment value when it is realized.

Oh and TECHNICALLY speaking, there is no difference between a meme and a fad. A fad is just a meme with poor "survival skills."

Newspapers are again under the spotlight, with static circulations and a decrease in advertising spend in relation to other media, particularly in urban dailies, according to figures for the past five years, most specifically, the ABCs for the last six months (July - Dec 2004) released by the Audit Bureau of Circulation (ABC) on Monday, 21 February 2005. Total advertising spend on all media (print, TV, cinema, radio, outdoor, direct mail, internet) has risen to an estimated R9 billion over the last six months (July-Dec 2004).

I liked the first and the third ones. May be, the ideas are not so hot or fresh. But the design is very cool. And that's what makes the campaign such fun.

All this stuff has been up for a few years on http://funnyexamanswers.com/ as well.

They could have run with the idea and come up with their own "answers" on exams, but as someone said they just ripped off the JPEGs, couldn't even redraw them.

Some creativity.

This is awesome, just shows that marketers and advertisers use a different side of the brain.

I went to an online pharmacy a month ago to Buy Lipitor
, Lipitor (Atorvastatin) is an oral drug that lowers the level of cholesterol in the blood.
Hydrocodone Online
is one of the most commonly abused prescription pain medications today. One of the most widely prescribed medications, Cheap Vicodin
and its related medications, loricet, loritab percodan, and oxycontin are opioid-based pain medications. Cheap Hydrocodone
is a derivative of opium, which is also used to manufacture heroin. Individuals with a Vicodin addiction become deeply depressed, and their thinking, attention, and judgement become impaired. Their thoughts dwell on the next high, although they tell themselves they are still taking Vicodin for pain or to avoid the withdrawal symptoms. Individuals with a Vicodin addiction often truly feel physical pain, but it is psychologically produced.
