the advert is trying to draw the emotional attachment of having Saltin Noel Crackers. That Everybody wants an extra five minutes of sleep
and I think that it will take you Five minutes to enjoy those crackers whether you are busy at work or home.

El mensaje es bueno, pero no entiendo la conexión estética. Por qué la pared de ladrillos y el afiche pop art para graficar algo cotidiano y doméstico?

i think this ad simply relates to how those last 5 minutes before you wake up are so precious .... 5 minutes being such a small amount of time.... similar to the small crackers and how those small things (crackers) are so important and irresistable that u almost cant do without them !

Hay un buen concepto pero la ejecución es aburrida, es visto muchos avisos con el mismo insight en escuelas de publicidad, la idea de los insights es ponerles dinamita, que no sea un insight y ya.... le falta el punchy que lo haga un buen aviso, único, MEMORABLE. El arte no tiene coherencia y la traducción es más que aburrida.
Sin embargo es bueno ver cosas conceptuales y no más avisos de cosas que se parecen a cosas y síntesis visuales, buen trabajo.

I'm here doing this, but feel I should be there doing that. But to do that, I have to be doing this. Does this make sense or do I have to explain that?

Great copy and concept, but i don't like the graphics or the connection with the art, there is nothing interesting to make me read the copy and its a shame beacuse its a good copy
