We can only comment if we have a good level of English?
I'm so tired of the arrogance of some Americans and Englishmen ...
Brazilian, Argentinean, Thai, Dutch not speak English and do better advertising than you, so shut up, poor nobody.

You were making a convincing argument until you showed your own arrogance, friend.

Dadada was right. For that reason alone, I am giving the ad only 6 stars.

It's for the UK's national society for the blind. The stories of Narnia are among those deserving of inverted commas and the name "national treasures" so I think it a bit mean to deny points for this ad because of the chance some people might not know the book. The ad's only shown in the UK, remember.

I think it's an excellent ad, takes the viewer right up to the point of familiarity and wrenches the obvious away. Really does its job, and the Facebook link is a good CTA too, a rare case where people don't mind an 'organisation' intruding on their privacy, by what I've seen on the site.

Well done all round.

The only issue here is that she seems to be deaf as well.

Insightful point - she must also be insensitive to temperature differences and snowflakes - but I reckon some charitable leeway is appropriate here.
