Pixelbomb, if you think those two ads are the same then you're in serious trouble my friend.

I did not say they are the same. I am saying that they are using the same tactic. diff product.

I guess the benefits is not strong enough to make smokers quit smoking.
So far, i still remember the "do for your penis".
but by the way, a new approach, refresh!

it's not like the taste of an apple would change drastically if it was 31% sweeter. hence... so what??

try adding 31% extra sugar to your coffee.
it might help you wake up.

so just add 31% more sugar to your apple if you're a smoker and *god forbid* your apple tasting 31% less sweet bothers the hell out of you...

problem solved.

look at is as if the smoke is filtering out 31% of the goodness the world has to offer in regards to your taste, smell, skin, and who the hell knows what else.

what a sad story..people become so addicted that they try to rationalize these side effects as being a regular fact of life.

pixelbomb, by posting the ikea ad you are saying that it is similar to this ad?
ooohhh, the starburst. right, sorry i missed that. how could i...
it is in fact highly rare to see the elusive starburst in ads.

i don't think smokers care that they can't taste when they are smokers. i know that once they quit, they notice that things start tasting better. but not one complains of not tasting things properly.
if i were a smoker, i wouldn't give this ad a second though.

as a smoker, I disagree. I think the_ashlands has the right idea that this ad goes far beyond the apple itself. IT's a much larger statement about improving life itself. You're right, I'm not going to quit smoking because an apple will taste sweeter; but if quitting smoking is going to make life sweeter in general, I just may consider it.
