For me, unfortunately none of these headlines are there yet. It's obvious you know how to structure a line, but still -- not quite there yet. As for the tag, having just seen the one for Taco Bell two ads ago (Think outside the bun), which is a great tag by the way, I'm not exactly in love with this one. This is a cool client that won't be in every book in the world (like Viagra and condoms), so maybe with some really strong, really well written headlines, a tag won't even be needed.

I agree. The lines arent there. And the art direction is typical student over art directed meaning to many fonts and hard to read. It also took a bit to get that the lines formed the hands of a clock. Not sure how that is working. I do like how the tag is treated and the background textures are nice. A few tweaks guys. Clean it up and you'll go from good to great.

True, font is a little hard to read but overall execution is good...

Interesting and different way of talking to the user, but I'm not sure if it's apt. I doubt if comfort is on the bereaved's mind. Would I really care about comfort if the ad is talking to me as a buyer for my own coffin??

Is there a need for 'think INside the box" to have uppercase "IN?" It looks like what tweens would type on MSN.

I think it's over-thought. It's trying to be clever when it should be communicating something. Comfortable? You'll be dead--you won't care. Maybe "As comfortable as...." or something. And teenie tiny font? I assume your target audience is over 65. They already need glasses--help them out a little!

I hope these are students' work - FIRST year students, I hope.

EDIT: Oh, I just checked, these ARE students. Well, try harder, not even a passing grade these ads.

Art direction is amateurish to the extreme. Does not evoke vintage, prestige, funereal, death etc etc.

Copywriting is in an inappropriate tone. First of all, if you want to make this tongue in cheek, you should adopt a mock seriousness in tone of voice. What you say can be lighthearted or even with a touch of humour. But NOT in the way you say it. Using the word "bloody" does not impress anyone here and make the humour cheap and childish.
