Too literal. Weak.

@Edoftheworld: You must be new to this business. The point of advertising is not creating super-smart, oh-fuck-how-clever-i-am, cannes-lion-winning, semi cryptic ads that only a few understand. Average consumer will give you 1.5 seconds of their time when flipping thru magazine or driving by a billboard. That’s it. That’s all the time you have to convey the message and grab attention. And yes, advertising is mostly literal, with some clever (and occasionally humorous) twists. It’s not art, it’s a craft at best with lots of psychology thrown in. The goal of advertisers is to move a client’s product and build his brand. If you want art, interpretation, introspective and deep thoughts, go to an art gallery, read a book or watch Dogme 95 film.

Surely the guy can express his opinion without being told he 'must be new to the business'.

Surely I can express my opinion without being told how to express it.
Plus: “you must be…” is an assumption, “you are…” is a statement. Not quite the same thing.

Don't know if the simplicity is an advantage, or just makes it too boring.

I've seen a lot of "something meets something else" and a combined mash up visual, that's all
