A nice and simple one. Maybe an autoplay feature would have been nice?

The idea is good, but the execution is crap.

Very nice -- well done. I'm normally an advocate for autoplay but I don't know that an autoplay is needed here. Seeing HIV so strong and stark on screen is quite powerful in its own right. But I'm interested to know what you think is "crap" about this Dougie? How could you have made it better?

I think the animation could have been smoother, but I like this. Effective. Noticeable.

Agree with Scott about the power of HIV being stark, but it doesn't encourage rollover in any way. It also takes quite a while of playing before the africa part (or, for that matter, the final message) comes in. With so many ads still non-interactive, I think an autoplay should still be available.

I liked the simplicity of it all. Nice idea.

The message comes late......

If i didnt know there was a message at the end i wouldnt have carried on scrolling need to get the message hitting quicker, otherwise its useless. But i totally love the idea...Maybe a better way would have been to have it user activated then have it switch to autoplay and speed up.
