What do you think about this addvertising picture for a T-shirt?

Nisem volila te voleNisem volila te voleLast advertising picture for a Mladina’s T-shirt Nisem volila teh volov was a success (sale is soaring) and today I had to do another picture, but this time for a female T-shirt. I decided to do it in a stable and bet on the words bullock (VOL) vs. cow. The slogan Nisem volila teh volov means I didn’t vote for these bullocks. Here are two results and my wife demands not to unveil the identity of a female wearing a T-shirt. Technically pictures is badly dodged and burnt in, but it’ll be perfectly made when I’ll choose for which one.

What do you think? Does it work? Which one?

  1. It actually translates to “I didn’t vote for these bulls.”

    (these vs. this and bulls vs. bullocks)

  2. I thought bullock is more an insulting word for a bull which in the context of the t-shirt is more appropriate.

  3. Second one. Why?
    Well, in the first you can clearly see its a “regular cow”, but the second one reminds me on that old movie “Ne joči, Peter”, where one of the guys wanted to milk the bull, heh.
    Also, I’s leave your wife’s chin out and add maybe the upper part of the bucket with some milk.

    And the other reason is a certain metaphor with the second pic: it kind of shows how our government is squeezing and milking the people. 🙂

  5. Borut, you are partially right and I am partially wrong. Bullock, steer, ox, or stag are castrated bulls. However Bullock can also be used as a young bull so it could go both ways.

    Still “these” vs. “this” applies.

  6. Klemen, I don’t think your government is milking the people. I think people are milking people. When you have perfectly able people moonlighting and being on social support and you don’t report them you enable them to milk you. They are not cheating government, they are taking your money.

    Slovenia has too many social transfers but that is what seems you guys want.

  9. I think that there are no wrong choices. I prefer first picture as the picture because it’s a bizarre moment and two tongues are expressing disgust that goes well with a pay off “I didn’t vote for these bullocks”. Nevertheless the key elements on the first picture are tongues and the moment. T-shirt is in a second plan.

    That’s why Godfather (creative director) choosed the second picture. Second picture is head on promoting the T-shirt. Maybe it’s even a bit too obvious, but nevertheless it’s intriguing. I didn’t want to have a bucket or anything else that would take the attention from the T-shirt. If I would crop out the chin, I would crop out the T-shirt.

    I like that pictures are intriguing (read funny).

    Thanks for the debate guys and Maja!

    PS: Let me tell you a secret. On the second picture there was no milk at all. I digitally draw it, wondering if you’ll notice. Believe me even in Hi-res you would not. he, he…

  10. Actually I didn’t pay attention, but once you said that I examined the picture and:

    1. hand is not squeezing the cows thingie so it is obvious.

    2. slight curvature of the “milk” doesn’t really reflect the jet of the actual milk when squeezed out.

    So if one would wanted to see it is obvious it is fake.

  11. Prva je kul, le da bi moral biti namesto krave vol in ženska vola nebi smela božati(vsaj jaz v tej gesti vidim negacijo med sloganom in fotko)

    2. je dobra zaradi jasnega napisa na majici, vendar ne vidim kake silne zgodbe v njej…
    To je samo moje primitivno mnenje, da ne bo kakih zamer:)
    (drugače pa prva absobloodylutely)
    be good

  12. btw: on the second picture you can’t tell the squeezed it’s a fake if you’re not told so.
    first one is much better. N
