Agree, the artwork is nicely done, but the concept is basic... yet it does make me smile

Always try to be unique even when forced to conform.

somehow they manage to draw your attention but then you have this puzzled feeling

Saw this on the subway. I get mixed feelings about these ads. I guess I sorta like them. I just wish they were stronger, but I don't know how strong you can exactly go with Halls.

You have to hate advertising in order to truly love it.

just good execution... and nice "clean" photo (is there a way to have this "piquet"?)

Simple ideas are the best !

Saw these on the subway and felt like I was in a quarantine ward and wanted to get the hell out before I caught their cold. Get these off of the subway, please!!!! Who wants to be stuck in a subway car full of sick people?! Ugh!

The ads could use more diversity in terms of the people. For example, where is the blonde, blue-eyed bombshell? Don't they get sick, too? I didn't like that they are all folks with dark hair, somewhat white skin.

I want to know why all the people in the Halls subway ads are Jewish. Every single one of them.

WAIT!!!!!!!!!!!! AM I THE ONLY ONE WHO THINKS THIS IS A TOTAL RIP-OFF OF ALTOIDS!!! And, if I was the photographer, I would not brag about shooting an Altoids rip off that Tony D'Orio did such a great job on. JWT NY? Blah!
