Pathetic. It's easy to get featured on the news. What's diffcult is doing it with an idea that is well thought out and relevant.

What's worse is that 'Let Tekken Decide' is actually an English idea with much better ads - arguments in life decided by fighting in-game.

For the record, I could get my cock out in the State Library and I'd get on Today Tonight, it doesn't mean it's a good idea.

I agree with 7.49. Don't praise this work because it got "attention". It got attention because it is irrelevant rubbish.

Have to agree with 7:49. just cause you ruffled some feathers ain't no reason to call Lynchy, as if you now have evidence of how brilliant and edgy your work is. It's pretty lame stuff when push comes to shove.

To me it seems like the client had no money to make any ads in which case these are decent.
Will they pick up? i don't think so.

I think they did extremely well with the budget and it beats the pants of some of the other ads on here.

I heard that it was cut together on i-movie. Well done Mish.
