FirstBank says: Just 'cause you can bank anywhere, doesn't mean you should

These illustrated billboards sum it up featuring people in jobs where mobile banking should be discouraged. Just because you can it doesn't mean you should seems very much like something a portfolio student would have brought me when I was still teaching, but the illustration rescues it from being too much of a student idea.

Bavaria "Independent Dutch Masters" (2016) :42 (The Netherlands)

Bavaria is independent since 1719. It's a Dutch masterpiece. Just like the ones hanging on the wall. Which is a great concept. But when I see one of those masterpieces rocking the ear buds and sunglasses and purple hair it hurts my brain.

Bavaria "Fashionable since 1719" (2016) :46 (The Netherlands)

Not everything from 1719 is worth keeping. Especially gigantic skirts that get in the way of everyone else. But the beer though, that's another story. I wish the english version of the VO was part of the mix.

Not everything from 1719 is worth keeping around. Definitely not the hair style. but the beer is another story. Although I would argue that the hipster rat nest or the freaking pony tail on the barber isn't exactly high fashion either.

This charming ad skirts Mentos camp territory by adding some social commentary to the mix. On the subway everyone is so wrapped up in themselves and their smart phones, except for hot girl and hot guy who notice each other from afar, so to speak.

SFDE "Real foodies Compost" (2016) :40 (USA)

Catchy little ditty from School of Thought for the San Francisco Department of the Environment reminds you to compost all your food stuff because it's better for the environment. Speaking of food, the song itself is very, well, sugary.
