I disagree with the proposition 'If it was good enough for Grandma's bum it's good enough for yours.' So does my Grandfather.

I like the idea but it's badly executed.

It's 3 headlines for the price of 1.

Nice style. I don't really get the first line.

No one cares about child labor, eye donation or saving the Earth: NO PSA!!!

two headlines is odd. third line is weak. could have done so much with this.

Why cram 3 headlines in one ad. I got the message after 1.

i see to headlines. grandmas bum line would work fine alone. no need to rationalize it.

The art direction is tired. The lines are nice, but I agree not all are necessary in a single ad. | | wordjones

Just because you have a good copywriter you shouldn't put so many words on your ads. Weed out your thoughts and put the best ones into different ads. I can see an ad with JUST the Q-A: What' new at Hoggie's? Absolutely nothing.
