FAD "Create" (2015) 1:06 (Spain)

Create whatever you want, but create something because the more you create the less room there is for drugs. There is plenty of room, however, for creating a manifesto that repeats the word"create," over and over again like some obvious mantra.
It's always nice to take a positive spin on anti-drug campaigns, and I applaud the effort. But seeing how many creative people from Oscar Wilde to Lou Reed were addicts and alcoholics, it's also an idea that you can poke holes in quite easily. And if I see one more fucking hipster dragging a mattress or a sofa onto a roof top or staying up all night to watch the sunrise like they've accomplished something, I'm going to burn all my pairs of adidas Originals as a sacrifice to the advertising gods. So help me god. At least this spot didn't have a flare gun in it.

Is it just me, or did this ad come across as terribly generic? Stick an HSBC logo on the end and take out the line about drugs and it might as well be an ad for a youth savings account.

Also, I don't want to make a big deal out of this, but what's with the girl wearing the dog on her head? She's definitely on something.

Youth savings, denim jeans, moleskine, you name it.
