All the images in this campaign, save the shower head one, make me wanna puke. Ad could be funny, just not off putting.

Hair loss treatment.. the ad implies that currently you've got no hair.. so your head would look better with hair.

Anyone reminded of Neil French's hairy egg? :D

Neil French's 'Hairy Egg' ad (which was for Kaminomoto Hair restorer) was certainly better than this, I think. At least it was kind of funny.

a BIG NO to this one..............
some way or other, the shower (hair loss during shower) and the beer (may find them in food or drink) connect the idea, indeed they don't look better with hair!
Would there be a cabbage story... I dunno?!!!

The moral of this ad? Don't waste your hair treatment on the vegetables...

It shoud read as 'Not every head looks better without hair.' So, come to our club for hair growth. Isn't it?

If you meant 'Not every head looks better with hair' then I agree with you.

Or simply: "Some heads are meant to be hairless. Yours isn't."

I like the idea. It's funny, but it does need to made less gross. More like thicker human hair on top of the cabbage, rather than odd-looking tufts. Same with the beer and the shower head - a few strands of manky hair on a drink is too real and disgusting. You need a full head of clean, spiky hair on the beer, and a luxuriant mane of long shiny hair coming out of the shower. That would be less gross, and more funny.

this made me chuckle, but if I needed hair it would not make me want to get some. Ew.

Ughh..... I think they have managed to disgust people. Still the ads is too yucky to move on from the image into the message
