I think it discriminates ugly people. But it works.

Who decides what is ? lots of men and women can love this women and lots of women and men can find this guy ugly. For the "cliché" 4/10.

Simple ideas are the best !

No need to force the "ugliness" that much... any little inconvenient touch would work way better.

only kids will enjoy this big difference.

Right, totally agree with satrianee. Hibon- Of course ugliness is absolutely subjective, insecure people who feel bad about themselves will not feel comfortable with these ads.

A story of mismatches that doesn't go the distance. It's a waste.

the creator just made ads without put their heart in this ad, i think they just want to made this ads to be different, but they don't think the other target market..
what if you are in the ugly people side..what do you feel?...i think they won't buy this product..

I think the pictures lack emotion. To me it feels like the attractive dude and girl are just hugging the ugly ones for the pic, I dont feel a relationship present in the message.

You've just lost all ugly consumers and everyone with a good taste. I am not sure the rest would be aroused by a discount.

I know a lot of people who actually choose ugly partners for whatever reason... and this creative has already been done so many times before... maybe joe la pompe could have some samples
