Hi Louai … “BEAUTIFUL REPRODUCTION” of the french ad … http://anorudo61.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d2d7t8x same concept … The text actually is a English translation of the French ad … Can You believe this? (how your perception changes when you drink and drive) THE United Nation ad is the Not-So-Original ONE … found on the deviant art page of a “Creative” from Talent Ad Agency Kuwait … http://caprozo911.deviantart.com/gallery/ And the Funny comment under the ad … This ad was a “Gift for [ United Nations Road Safety Collaboration ]” … Did i mention the “Talent” guy doesn’t know how “pirson” (PRISON) is spelled … lol … GOOD JOB TALENT!!! You “didn’t” it again!!!

“Fake” Designer: Seif El Degwi
Upon doing some more investigation into this copycat crime I dug up the original ad. So its officially Safe to communicate the fact that Seif El Degwi copied the copier of the original ad which was first published in India as per the following details. So he (Seif) copied the copied idea, the headline and the art direction!!!!!!!!!
