but "love diesel", is that the self glorifying masturbatory satisfaction that fashion wants to promote?I think people with a powerful voice should speak, not gossip about what is happening around them.Diesel is a huge brand at least here in canada and i think they are being exploitive with this advertisement, they should become a little more proactive, i fell like everyone see's the effects of global warming as a good thing, nothing to worry about, but growing up in canada i have been aware of the ozone depletion since i was in grade 3 as far as i can remeber doing anything about it, but what can an elementary school student do in comparison to a global brand like diesel...

dizzytacks - i don't think that is what diesel is saying at all. I think this is supposed to be quite tongue in cheek and ironic. It is a warning about our future and possibly a mockery of those who do glorify it.

woow i really love the concept! it's done beautifully...but i think that maybe, for a fashion ad, the background is a little more interesting than the models.
it kind of steals the focus from the clothes?? just my opinion lol
but love the ads

regardless of their intentions, if diesel does nothing proactive about this crisis, what really seperates them from the ones they mock...

That's what you'd think if you didn't know what irony is. They are certainly not mocking anyone. What will you have them do, anyway? The best thing they can do is raise awareness, and I think they have succeeded.

i always love diesel ads...
unlike others fashion line that's only selling pretty faces and the dress with great pose, at least they made effort in making a "campaign" with issues.

i especially love the ad with the parrots. very clever and subtle, if people don't know thatt parrots are tropical birds, they won't even think this picture is wonderful and thinking that the colourful birds are just pretty elements to add colours in the picture.

Besides Dsquared, Diesel is one of my favorites. Their ads are always interesting and visually amazing; this season is just as great.

Creative...I love diesel ads, they don't do the normal boring picture of a model
