Positive: The medium is the message with this ad.
Negative: Little original thought. It's been done MANY times. Agency for sure knew it.

1) McDonald's - Better idea.
2) Sun Chips won a bunch of awards, and was done by another Toronto agency.

Okay, one more time: sun dial is not an idea, not a concept. It is an empty box that you can fill with anything. Or a tool - like a hammer, you can build many things with it. "We have food for every period of the day" has nothing to do with "When the sun goes down, you will be dead".

Another smart play on light/dark, with "Dead" reached as sun sets. Works for me.

I think you folks don't really understand how appropriate to the video game this ad is. The game's concept is that there is supernatural evil in the dark. So this ad simply and creepily gets that impending nightfall idea across brilliantly. A warped "M" showing that McDonalds has lots of food is nowhere near as on target to the product as this ad is.
