I can't even tell if this ad is serious. Then I went to the website and found out that it 100% is. Very odd...

It's hard to see that tactic serve a good cause after it's been used by Old Spice to promote deodorant. Oh hair, you are so funny and abundant (on some.)

the other campaign was much much better.

It is a very difficult job to tell a serious message in a "funny" way. Dont think this one is working...
