There are simple ads and simplistic ones - this clearly falls i the latter category. But hey, if the gazillion sponsors are happy, who am I to argue?

Je vous salue Paris pleine de...


Ah, so Rami el Khoury strikes again! In a very efficient poster - he knows how to make his visuals simply and straight to the point all while keeping the fun in (my opinion is biased though as I have collaborated with him on several projects) - which plays on wine, conviviality, and overall good mood (yes, with the tricolor motif) the ad simply hits where it should!

Too much dairy and the lactose intolerance.

So many dairy ads are almost giving me lactose intolerance.
