Literary debate??? The dynamics of heat and gas... Are you nuts? Where is the literature. i think it's a scientific debate.

I literally gagged on my tea trying to read and understand this.

I think it's fun! on 2nd thots, maybe i'm just a li'l biased coz i don't get 2 see too many copy-based ads in Dubai.

the only thing i feel is that the conversation should have been longer. N it shouldn't have outrightly led to Bill saying out loud that it's an oven manual. The copy should have ideally, led u into finally figuring it out urself it's a manual they r talking about.

Rework on this, Mr. copywriter (plus, it wudn't hurt to make the art a li'l la-tea-dah too)...i think u have a nice thought on ur hands.....just needs the tea :)


Not all who wander are lost.
