Everything happens way too fast. It needs to be simplified

This is yet another instance where the "creative" part of the spot literally engulfs the "product benefit" part. It's done well, and it's a good (if overly done) idea. But we can't get out of own way sometimes. The ratio of "wank-to-product info" is 9-1. Which is way too high. The "product" comes across as merely a "tag" at the end of some mini- sitcom. Selfish.

you are right in faulting the creative aspect of this ad but not for the reasons outlined. the message is convoluted. it was never explained why being able to record four shows simultaneously makes you not fight over diaries at the dinner table. there is no connection that makes any sense. that's the huge problem that causes people like myself to go "huh whaaa?" at the end.
