hats off to the illustrator "Wijesiri Mathugama" !!...But who doesn't KNOW what is hair?...means KNOWING hair is not UNDERSTANDING hair!!...problem here coz this one liner in English can mean trash and when translated into the local language can mean a lot...nevertheless 10 for the illustrations..THEY ARE GREAT ONLY IF DONE MANUALLY BY Wijesiri Mathugama!! (OTHERWISE 0 ), and the old paper effect (as if proclaiming "we know hair since pre-history!) needs a bit of COPY to explain the COMBINED visual effect of the ad.

oh gee dude, SHUT UP.
also, excessive use of CAPS randomly THROUGHOUT your inanely BORING comment.

onto the work: this campaign isn't too bad. quite interesting.
i don't agree with the above advice on the copy either. works just fine for me.

Hahahaha!!! Give the new guy a break! Although I have no idea what hell he was babbling about, he is quite entertaining to read... ; P
His verbal diarrhea and CAPS LOCK SYNDROME will eventually subside as time goes on (one can only hope...)
