Hi Louai …
“BEAUTIFUL REPRODUCTION” of the french ad …  http://anorudo61.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d2d7t8x
same concept … The text actually is a English translation of the French ad … Can You believe this? (how your perception changes when you drink and drive)
THE United Nation ad is the Not-So-Original ONE … found on the deviant art page of a “Creative” from Talent Ad Agency Kuwait … http://caprozo911.deviantart.com/gallery/
And the Funny comment under the ad … This ad was a “Gift for [ United Nations Road Safety Collaboration ]” …
Did i mention the “Talent” guy doesn’t know how   “pirson” (PRISON) is spelled … lol …

Upon doing some more investigation into this copycat crime I dug up the original ad.

An optical illusion (also called a visual illusion) is characterized by visually perceived images that are deceptive or misleading. The information gathered by the eye is processed by the brain to give apercept that does not tally with a physical measurement of the stimulus source. There are three main types of illusion – literal optical illusions that create images that are different from the objects that make them, physiological illusions that are the effects on the eyes and brain of excessive stimulation of a specific type – brightness, tilt, color, movement, and cognitive illusions where the eye and brain make unconscious inferences. – Wikipedia.
