Took me a second because of the similar tile background in both the kitchen & shower.
I thought, your shower is so clean you can cook dinner in it lol.

Shinning Floor is not written out there. People like me will not understand unless the AOTW tag. I think there will be no tagging option in the print media :). Weak ad.

You have to be stupid not to get it. Still not great though.

In the company of the typical woman's magazine ad which this ad will probably keep, this is an upgrade, believe me.

This is stunning work. For a really tough client. In a notoriously pedantic category. Anyone who doesn't recognize that shouldn't be in the business.

Yeah, I doubt these ever ran.

This is a stunning campaign for a very tough client in a notoriously banal category. Anyone who doesn't recognize that shouldn't be in the business. Well done boys. Love Craig.

Just because the category is banal doesn't make poor work any better. As with everything in advertising.

It can't be too bad, the campaign just got into this year's Communication Arts Advertising Annual.
