iPhone or iPrison?

Go Outside magazine is a Brazilian title.

The photo illustrations here are simply beautiful — your smartphone and mouse are turned into cool, futuristic Armageddon-like prisons.

Go outside, people. Go outside.

Ad agency: Talent, São Paulo.

Love the entrance to this prison, and how the road represents the cord.

A clock — the weak third ad of the campaign.
