The multi-lingual rhino poster

I quite like these ads:
Rhino (tram) advert

From what I’ve heard, the campaign was originally quite successful, but started to wear off after a few months, so I guess they need to keep revamping it to continue to get the message across.

    I liked the series as well, but this particular one always irked me a bit because there are only 25 rhinos on the poster, but reference is made to 30 of them, what happend to the other 5… did they get hit by a tram. :-)

    Out of curiosity- how did you hear “it was quiet successful, but began to wear off”

    I’m just interested to how this is measured- is Yarra Trams looking at number of causalities or something?
