Wrong direction

This photo/idea is from a Tony Stone royalty-managed image library KuwaitHeadline: “Right direction”

Wow an investment company who did not even invest in a new idea for their own self promotion!!!

This investmant company ad “idea” is based on an image from Tony Stone; my guess is that the agency decided not to pay Tony for a royalty-managed photo so instead they shot it locally (Kuwait) in order to make more money from their client. I wonder why the agency is paying a salary for the art director?
