Advertising: PPC Cement's Rapunzel

"Get 15% more concrete from every bag."
Here's a new fairy tale ad being released this month (March 2012) in South Africa. I always find it interesting to see where these ads originate.

Kind of a funny one in that you tend to get the idea straight away (ie. even Rapunzel's magically long hair is outdone by the volume this cement adds to her tower) but then basic logic kicks in and you think, it's only a matter of time, as long as the prince is patient... right? (And then you wonder, would he really wait that long?)

I do like expression on the horse's face though: "Seriously?"
