Interesting parallel. They're basically saying, "remember when we were cool?" When in reality, they only thought they were cool. And when you think back to it now, you realize how uncool you actually were.

Unfittingly nice ad for a terrible product... But loved the spot nonetheless!

The nostalgia applies to a group long past. This is not the way to connect with a new touch screen generation.

That was great. Spot on with the fads. I don't use their products, but I certainly see them in a more positive light now. Great job C5.

good job in positioning the brand in a better light. I'm still not fancy about the product, but such a process, takes more than one ad.
