Well, I didn't like it. Maybe because I am not Turkish.

Actually he said "One minutes" at his first attempt.. If you'd write "One minutes" and put a red correction line on the "s", this AD would be far better..

As the ad is based on a real moment the prime minister did not really say "one minuteS". your opinion could be nice in that case.
what he exactly said was "one minute" and nothing more, cuz he does not speak english.
the copy says "improve your english" not "correct your english"

As Underdose said, you have to make it clear that she is adding the 'S' to help improve their English. A red underline would have been enough to make this ad 10 times better.

Bu adamlar nerden bilsin RTE'nin gafını. Güzel fikir. Ancak Nejat Talas'a hiç gerek yokmuş.
