I understand that they're talking to non-handymen that know little about tools, but why the hot pink treatment if theyre pitching masculinity?

AD feels off brand and off messaging.

I think they tried to follow Craftsman's corporate colours.

a hand of a real man is rough. this is the message. It could good with just one piece not a campaign of three. People can not see the appeal of the sandpaper.

Like it. American guys will do anything not to end up like one of the losers from "Glengarry Glenross".

Really interesting approach. They probably couldn't get any more red, that would explain the pink.
