Little people can cause big misunderstandings

Posted on | February 25, 2009 | 2 Comments

Hello everyone,

Yesterday night, I was surfing the internet and checked the websites of the companies I used to work for. I was particularly impressed by Duval Guillaume’s blog on which I found this crazy ad…

Here is the background: Every year a Belgian charity called Islands of Peace sells ‘little men’ keyrings in the shape of their logo. These “little people” are a popular way for them to raise funds and for people to support their work with Third World farmers. All sounds so simple. But even the simplest ideas can get lost in translation, as this internet-only film shows.
