This is so cutesy and awful and factually incorrect. Bananas contain potassium which is necessary for recovery after working out. I'm sure "Gainomax" is full of synthetic chemicals that nobody should ever consume.

I love Saatchi & Saatchi and I love Scandinavian advertising, but this is just silly and facile (unless your target market is little boys and girls). The whole premise is childish, and will do nothing to win over grown people (particularly men) who are serious about working out. Check out this other video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TX0OYCHZHZA&feature=player_embedded The site - savethemonkeys.net - is no longer in use (I wonder why).
