The visual is similar but the idea is different. And the Braun won a Cannes Lion 2008 Gold in outdoor. ;)

This campaign falls down as:

1. It's the same execution 3 times.
2. Would guys really grow nasal hair that long, just to get them trimmed with a Braun nose trimmer?
3. They all look like old gaylords and not mafia.

The Hair restorer campaign works as:

1.It's not the same execution 3 times (Only 2 to be fair but could have easily have been 3)
2.I saw this ages ago so is more original.
3. It gives a clear product benefit. This product is so effective that anything you touch will grow hair.

To me, this campaign is saying what happens if you DON'T use the Braun. As opposed to that you would grow your nose hair this long so that you CAN use the Braun.

did you have something to do with the hair restorer campaign,
if you did then i understand your frustration, but shit happens
if you didn't, then you can obviously see the product here is different and therefore the idea is different.
either way stop posting the same comment 3 times, its frustrating for the rest of us

in my opinion, this is some great work, its funny and gets the point across, of course no one is going to grow their nasal hair that long but thats why this works.

I still don't think this campaign is worth Gold. Then again what do you expect from Cannes, the 'Eurovision' of advertising!

Brilliant work. Very funny.
Don´t listen to all those jealous motherfuckers around the world. They are sitting
in their dirty office, not able to do it better.

Enviousness is the highest form of tribute !!!
