"....But if you look at all the other ads, except of this one, (their only good ad print, & this is why we are here...).."

That's what I mean, at least these shouts "stand out", not like others which are a bit weird in storytelling.

It seems that Ray-Ban is trying too hard to re-brand itself.

Overall feeling is it's a miss.
That's usually what happens when the agency is given too much latitude and have no specific target in mind.

Ray Ban has to rethink again.

I don't care much for the execution of their slogan: "don't hide" - there is NO revelation there either, something they tried very hard to implement.

Don't hide the fact you are incompetent.

IMO this campaign strengthens the "never hide" slogan, and this re-branding process started times ago, which only becomes better.

I like the "never hide" only when you reveal something that is valuable.

But if you look at all the other ads, except of this one, (their only good ad print, & this is why we are here...)
they are provocative with no good reason, infantile somewhat.

So the question remains, what did you accomplish by re-branding yourself, when you keep on making the same mistakes, over and over again?

Exactly.

You are strengthening my point.

p.s. coming out of the closet is a passé .

Sorry but I think coming out the closet is only passé when you have never had to do it. I think the ad is powerful.
