Diesel ads are always pretty interesting, I think. Not always very good, but they do have a certain appeal to them...

this ss 07 one is okay. I like the settings for the photos, my favorite campaign was the Happy Valley one from a couple years ago with the Donald Diesel character.

I never like Diesel ads. There's also just so much going on in the photos.

although they might be little ...um, tacky, I like how they use fashion and it's influence to fight with such a problem.

I love the concept, anything that makes people more aware works for me.

I like the way they try to make things visible. Those are still very nice ads and there are message too. This is not still anything Benetton - there is clothes with

That's what I thought when I first saw the ads.

Agree, it's clever way to warn people & still selling their stuffs too

Smart. I like the idea. The models are gorgeous too. Saving the planet as well. Fashion never looked so good.

They're quite clever, and I like their look. At the same time I don't want them to make risible a very real crisis.

I suppose if you look at them ironically, they are actually smart and biting. Bt I don't think people will do so. They'll just tropical things without understanding the possible underlying message.

looks like the diesel ads are glorifying global warming. looking at the ads, global warming seems to make the world look like paradise, look how much fun those models are having

for people that are not familiar with Diesel concept of promotion these ads may seem like glorifying global warming or such things...
but it's just old Diesel at their best lately!
I liked so far the best the "LOVE NATURE while it lasts" campaign...
last summer campaign (camuflage tales) really sucked!
But this's just AWESOME
so ironic, so fun, so makes people think...
:love: DIESEL!
