What sloppy, uninspiring copy. If you're going to take the sound off and make me read through that, you'd better be bloody entertaining. These were all an utter, boring waste of time. They sound like a high-school essay on the subject of "thinking for yourself".

I like these. I just wish the last 2 had some sort of audio like the first one where it cuts to dead silence when the logo comes up. I find it has more impact that way. Otherwise the audience might think they need to adjust their volume.

a TVC denouncing TV
and being told how to think
is telling viewers

This campaign is lamer than the copy. So that's like, really lame.

Thought provoking.

Like "Think Different"...

No, just kidding!

They're a bit too open-ended. They all say DO SOMETHING with your life. But for TV-addict-couch-potato-types like me, you have to tell us what you want us to do... : )

Or at least provide examples of shinning beacons like "Think Different".

Otherwise I flop back down onto the couch and do nothing more than surf the channels for something more meaningful.

I'll give it a "6". The attitude is right.
