Ad is funny. But should it be?

I don't think it's funny. It's clever, but not funny.

Maybe good-humored would define it better.

well, you think it is funny. I think it is eye catching. As every ad should it be.

Is eye catching all an ad should be? Should you really place obesity beside incurable, terrible deseases such as HIV and hepatitis? Not just comparing, but stating it to be worse, and making fun of deceased people in the process? Is obesity really about glutton fat people who can't keep their distance from ice creams and salami? Does this ad help them in any way? The ad is funny. But should it be? Can't it be anything more?

How is this making fun of deceased people. I think you're overthinking it...

I don´t think you can chance the world with a print ad. But you can pass the message in a "Fun" (if you like that word) way. It´s not about to make serius and sad ads when the menssage is strong. They make me compare bad food with virus and I think that´s a good way to show a bad scenario.
