This campaign has all the things you'd expect to see in a Cannes winner. So congrats to the team on that level.

But I bet real people wouldn't understand it and it wouldn't actually sell the product.

Great art.
The executions are cute and they make me smile, even though I don't really know how they relate to the product.

Think it for a while.

Cannes worthy? Isn't the point of advertising to sell to consumers, not dazzle them with clever ideas that are confusing? I had to sit and ponder these a while to even understand them. For someone that's not really familiar with the product, it makes no sense.
