The product is so small in the lower right corner that I dont know what it is. Therefore the line -- which is awkward by the way, is it a question or more a statement? -- forces me to try to decipher it and by that time Ive turned the page.

I realize Im supposed to close the circle, but at least turn on the lights so I can see...

Yeah, takes a bit of time but then you quickly notice the amount of glasses that lie around. It's okay, not great though.

It's definitely not the typical Thai humour we're used to seeing which is quite refreshing. But it also lacks the insight into Thai culture as well.

yeah well you know how it is. We Dutch creatives like to put wooden shoes and windmills in every ad we can get our hands on too!

Thai culture is needed only if it's an ad about Thailand aimed at other cultures. But ads aimed at Thais themselves should just work, like ads in any other country. We don't see moose and igloos in Canadian ads unless it's to make fun of what other people think about us.

Copy: Shouldn't it be: Remember where THEY were last? glasses/spectacles - plural is a 'they'.

I think the 'it' here refers to any item you might forget and not just the glasses.

I'm trying but I don't quite get it. If your memory improved, why would you remember 8 different pairs of glasses? Wouldn't you just remember where the 1 pair was the last time you saw them? It's almost creepy - like your memory will go haywire if you take the stuff. Perhaps the message is that you'll remember where they were every time you lost them, but that's not the benefit, so it doesn't really work.
