This one is little confusing. Why would she hand over the hotdog?

But why they took the genes as a creative root concept?! It is a very well known fact that most teenage tend to be active and like sports and outdoor activities while parents are much slower and conservative driven lifestyle; I really don't see the connection in this campaign when it refers to genes.
As for the art direction, the mom is almost reaching her son; hence, she has a very high fitness as per this visual, which contradict the message I guess!

I agree. It does.

The art direction makes it contradictory. Looks like the mom is easily passing the baton and not struggling to do it. Maybe the perspective of the illustration is a bit confusing.
