So do you wake up with a headache? This wasn't well thought out now, Was it?

Actually I love them. I think is a very different way to advertise in this category of products where the ads themselves could put you to sleep. This is a fun, fresh take on the issue. I also think we all should stop behaving and tawking like those mediocre-Im-gonna-lose-my-job-scared-shitless-brand managers...after all this should be a creative forum..Yes one might wake up with a headache...but I ask...¿do you really think a HAMMER/FYING PAN / BOXING GLOVE will pop up out of the box of sleeping pills?? or do you really just dont get the visual metaphore...(that this pills will knock you out) ah! I know... you were being sarcastic!!! oh poor me. sorry. hahaha.

ok, so you fall asleep quickly, like hit by a hammer; i get that and it's funny. in a cartoon. but in real life you also wake up with a headache, as if you were sedated. this tells me this drug is not good for me.

What a load of shit! This campaign reads to me like the product gives you a thumping headache. Why would I want that when I can drink 15 pints and snort 5 grams of coke!
