Perfect Pictures for an Imperfect World

Submitted by: dierdrekali 9 years ago Misc

Very well-produced commercial, but it might be the most depressing commercial ever. Or is it? Slightly NSFW (boobies).

Well I`m glad it`s not actually a photo commercial (Some Dude on page 2 or 3 cleared that up) but I just don`t like that video no matter what. It IS thought provoking but I don`t want to think, people have enough sadness in their life to think about others within reason but yeah...

..meaning the photo company have noticed that in people. We all want to be happy and "perfect" and preserve that image. So we take pictures to remind us of the good times so that they can comfort us in the bad.

I`m surprised nobody has picked up on this yet, but this is not a commercial for a photo developer. I`ve seen this video before, I just can`t remember where (I`m counting on you, link hounds! If anyone can find it in its original context, it`s the folks here). Then, someone tacked on the foto-prix bit at the end in an attempt at humor. That attempt is an abysmal failure. This was/is a very powerful video about perception vs. reality, wants vs. needs, and hope vs. dismay. While I think that there is no topic which is off limits when it comes to comedy, I do feel that you have an obligation to actually be *funny* if you are going to do something along these lines.

I think everyone here is missing the point. `Perfect pictures for an imperfect world`, now ponder that. Each person`s pictures is a memory of a good epoch, pull away to reveal a bad one (except for the first boy in which it showed a hope). Following that one could conclude that the company is stating: we will help you remember good times; which I think is a good advert. Secondly because it IS powerful and depressing, as the preponderance has stated, you will remember this commercial. Two points- echoes of tranquility and memory. I say this is a good commercial, just not analyzed enough, even though you say it is thought provoking.

*sigh* Another amazing commercial ruined by the fact it makes no point to the company whatsoever apart from the fact that it`s photos. I think they make us want to think, "Yay boobies and guns! I want to process my photos there. Whoopee!"

I hope this company gets destroyed for this video.
To use spousal abuse in an ad complain for photofinishing, that`s just horrible. Especially with of the issues spain is having (this place seems to be based out of spain). I`m not saying all the other images were any better

"if anyone coincidentally feels suicidal soon, kill yourself inside one of these places and make them feel really really bad in the suicide note."

I guess they will just take an old picture of their place. Cover up the body with it, and noone will ever know it did hapend.. ;-)

The point was that the photos are so good that you couldn`t tell that they were photos until they were moved away.

FAILS!!! so depressing... theres no point to it. I`d rather have seen that old epic beer at, the one with thousands of monks chanting about beer. THAT would have been something to see. Of course people would say repost, but in their hearts they would rather have seen that then this.

It seems pretty tasteless as an advertisement for `perfect pictures.` In fact I think that commercial could only succeed in making people care less about "100% digital quality" photos.

I was thinking "this is well done" until I saw the tagline at the end. What are they selling? Illusions and sugar coating so far as I can tell, to cover for the intolerance and lack of love. Yeah, that was really depressing.

How is a girl (guy?) with no boobs, a kid holding a handgun, a lady without a husband, and a kid who most obviously lives in a country that the U.S. and other major places but landmines but never took them out and the child had her leg blown off supposed to be make me want to use their company to make copies of pictures!? If anything I want to go to the company and blow my brains all over the place because this poo is depressing. What the HELL

Not really the best way to promote your photo processing company. The guilt trip is overwhelming to even think about taking pictures.

What in the hell was that suppose to be? Seemed more like a commercial to encourage suicide more than a photo development center.
