Hehe, it's kinda funny but Alzheimer doesn't work like this. Reminds me of the joke that people with Alzheimer can always hide their own Easter eggs.

Humour works most of the time. But its royally abused/misused here.

Wrong approach, this is not something people will appreciate nor will it reach an emotional level as to convince people to show their support. Its a joke, nothing more, nothing less. Bad!.

I wish someone could explain me, what's going wrong with McCann. This bunch of ads are so incredible poor and wrong that I'm starting to feel "beautifull".

Very poor taste. Use your brain.

I don't think they're trying to be funny at all. When you look at this it makes you feel sad, inciting the the intended emotional effect.

Funny idea, interesting art, but I agree it's a little insensitive I guess.

I don't think it's bad. People are used to the "heavy" approach in the advertising in these kind of subjects. This is different approach, that's all. Maybe too cruel, but funny and attention grabbing.

I like the headline. The payoff is too sloppy. If you're really going for an audience whose definition of a shitty day is 'it sucks' then at least go with "It's rarely cute. It mostly sucks", to tidy it up.

Though that's inadvisable since 'sucking' and kissing is another diversion for the brain.

I have to say that although it's not an offensive ad, it is.... forgettable.
