The Smartest Ever Ad Campaign To Use National Flags

Sure, the statistical representations are exaggerated, but creative license is approved here because the points made are accurate.

The ads aren’t new, but they’ve been circulating on several ad posting sites this week, and I hadn’t seen them before.

Ad agency: FCB, Lisbon.
