Ford Edge: Who you callin' tiny? - Poster by BBR Saatchi & Saatchi Israel

How do you remind Israeli men that bigger isn't always better? Drawing a parallel with the most famous of short figures, Napoleon Bonaparte, this print work by BBR Saatchi & Saatchi Israel showcases FORD EDGE's new "Eco-Boost" engine.

In actual fact, Napoleon wasn't actually that short - modern historians put his height at about 5"7. Furthermore, at 5"5, daily life 2 inches shorter than Napoleon has crippled me with small-man insecurity and a nagging inferiority complex. Look at that expression of tortured dissatisfaction - how easy to empathise. Look at it again. The thousand-yard stare of a man for whom the world will never be enough.

The common factor here is obvious. Much like a tiny yet sophisticated engine, sometimes small things offer excellent performance.

    It's not a competition. But if it was, I'd win.

    Let's discuss the ads here. Please, don't get off topic so shortly into the conversation.
