Some are a bit so so and only work from certain angles, or not at all (like the Tnuva Cheese, that's just a photoshop and a silly idea in my oppinion). But a lot of good ones, I really love the Greenpeace one, it's so simple. Message and execution are exactly the same!

Public transit ads? Too porocial, not highbrow enough! People using this form of transportation have little to no money anyways.

I would NEVER sit on that scale at the bus stop. I'd rather stand. I'm not sure if I get the shower curtain one.
