It was sure that somebody would have this comment. Advertising is not as simple as you think.

Advertising is up for interpretation. It is the advertiser's job to make sure those interpretations don't go off the intended path. This clip missed that mark. You yourself imply that the ad could be confused "It was sure that somebody would have this comment."

spot on...but i think they intended to make a socially conscious ad and went to town with "smoking is injurious to health" ads that u see...ballsy, yes

Advertising does not have to be well-interpreted by everybody. But when you write a comment on a site that judge advertising, you must be able to understand what is the message behind the spot. In this case, the announcer want to tell "drink with moderation" and that's what it said. The agency did a good job.

Yes, I understand the intended message but I do not think they conveyed that message. Instead the take away was that the only hero in the party was the one not drinking Heineken (and yes I realize he has a beer in the beginning but it is in the first 3 seconds where if missed, it changes the premise of the ad.) The spot would have been better for this alcohol brand had it not made villains of the people consuming its product.

Agree with the sentiments of this ad and the insight.

I like it for its acknowledgment that people drink too much.

As oppose to a funny beer ad with the 'please drink responsibly' cop out.

Different approach for a lovely concept.
More than a tv. That's brand image.

I agree. But the execution here is presented in a totally wrong way.

I think this is an Italian thing...

This ad is so wrong on so many levels.
There's no educational story here whatsoever. If so, it's not clear and up for questioning.
This spot sounds, and looks like, an ad pro-Cocaine and XTC/MDMA.

I would feel good in any situation with a Heineken. Except in Italy.

What's the problem? The message is clear and nice.

I'm sorry, you have to be comatose if you don't "get this". It's almost "knock you over the head" execution.
