true, its not that bad. but you know..unfortunately sometimes we see certain ads and a big chunk of our judgement comes from when we find out what agency. Sometimes we see 'ok' ads but when it's from Saatchi or O&M then we go oh wow that must be really good. But anyway only sometimes, an idea is an idea but it does add credibility to find out what's the agency

Sometimes I post ads from big agencies just to inform you guys about what is being done at big ad houses.

This is great! Unfortunately none of you seems to get it... and then throwing around bad comments and discussing the agency is easy...
Idea is very simple though. See yourself as the person saying this line. Before you start speaking something is broke and needs to be fixed. By the time you finished saying this line, the job is already done. So simple and so good ;)

I understand the idea but i ALSO understand that the target audience needs to get it to. If a bunch of creatives used to taste and judge advertising have troubles getting this i cant imagine a C would make of this.
The mayority of people not getting this doesnt mean that this people are wrong but that the ad has trouble in his reading.

How come a comunication that doesnt get trough its "simple and so good?"?

Well, I love the copy on both of these. If people say these are bad they need to re-read it.

No idea why there were two art directors involved though. White background, bottle of glue, copy paste. I'm a copywriter and I could've done this.

Brutal simplicity of thought.
Correct me if i’m wrong, but my clients would love it if a reader was to turn the page back for another look at their product.
Reminds me a bit of the Economist style of advertising.
