actually, it's very well retouched. the reason why it looks so fake is not the retouching...
(okay, his head might be a little too big)

Cute idea, but I don't think the execution is quite there.

You want to say that Grandpa is now a drop-dead sexy stud, 'cos with Viagra now he can bang like a screen door in a hurricane. So why not show a full-body shot? Or even a mid-body shot, show some abs and arms with those pecs.

And that, ladies and gents, is the difference between idea and execution. Thank you, good night, try the veal.

Well, if I hadn't gone into advertising, I think I might've been a pretty good professional cha-cha dancer. Sigh... the road not taken...

This is a cool idea. simple and clear. I wonder if it has been done before.

are his eye closed because he's getting blown or something? it's just gross and weird.

as for the photoshop comments, i think it's perfectly right to point out bad execution but i think this ad wanted to look fake. there are beefy old men out there they could have photographed but the cheesy retouching gives it intentional humor

I thought it was to help build strong "bones." Not muscles.

Yes, I DID!

This campaign is too great for them to have chosen such a pathetic Photoshopper.

I don't feel this ad... haha...
no... to be serious. I think it could have been better with a good pp. photoshop work is not perfect... they want to give it a puristic style... so... could have at least get rid of the dirt under granpa's cap. look at your ads before you publish them. I would have never let this ad go out in this condition.

photoshop skills aside, not sure about the idea. the link between a hard-on pill and a buff body is a little weak if you ask me.

Ivan is this a student idea or an agency idea? If so which agency did it?
Thanks

I think you lot are taking this too seriously.

think the ad is just meant to be funny

the majority of the public aren't gonna be making comments such as "ooo what dreadful photoshop work!"

Also matching half a century's worth of difference in age is sliiiiiightly difficult don't you think?

lighten up.
