Dude. Seriously? I mean...seriously?

Take a bit of a creative leap on this one.

Nice idea. But I don't think the ads do enough to communicate what the feature is. I didn't get it until I read the description under the ads.

If you're going to be a prick, it would help your cause if you at least had a clue what you were talking about. I was referring to the description under the ad, not the copy. The part that says, "A driving safety system that helps drivers to keep an automatic safe distance from other cars, or even stop the Mercedes Benz in order to avoid an accident." Get it?

Look at the time and date on your comment. When you edited it, the time and date changed. Now look at the time and date on my comment. It never changed. Because I never edited my comment. Nice try, jackass.

This one is kind of easy, "A dog never catches it's tail", but the other one might be too far of a stretch regarding his connotations being fat and lazy. Even though it's easy to say a "a fat man never touches his feet", but who does anyway ;)
IMO, this one is really nice, the other one not so much.

Do they really believe the average customer would get this?

Great idea, but the execution is too complicated for someone that is going to look at this while flipping through a magazine or newspaper.

Maybe thats's the big problem.. Advertisers always doubt about the intelligence of consumers. If we keep doing easy and light communication is not gonna have any impact on anyone, its easy to distroy something you have not create, but create... well... thats a different story.
