Maybe it’s my shame, not theirs, but when I first saw this French environmental campaign as thumbnails on Ads of The World, I thought it was about Kama Sutra with snowmen. Then I zoomed in, and thought I was looking at a first aid ad. Then finally, I read the copy.
It’s a good visual concept in theory. (The models could be a little less modelly, but this is a Parisian campaign…) However, it would have been better used for an Alpine lifesaving course. The mental leap from “CPR on a snowman” to “saving the snowy environment” to “clean the slopes” is just too far for a casual reader. Then again, I’m not a skier.
See one more after the break.
