So much time is invested in brainstorming to create a powerful ad with a simple message. It’s a pity, though, that a wrong spelling was overseen in the Amnesty International Poster.
It reads “Signiture” instead Signature:

Are you kidding me? Most of this ideas are OLD !!! “The picture of your TV-screen is so real, is like having a dinosaur in your home”… Come on, that’s the oldest trick of advertising. There are 1000 variant of that idea…

The only good ones are:
The Economist: Lightbulb
Denver Water: Channel

The rest: Seen that many times before…
