Show one thing, say another? It happens in a lot of ads but I don't feel it works here - they don't really compliment eachother, it's more like they work against. Also, actually stabbing a guy with sjaslieks is a bit too much but could have done better on the photoshop.

How are they saying one thing and showing another? They show what happened to people who were bothering their neighbors with a noisy hedge trimmer, and they say "stop bothering your neighbors." I think it works fine.

They show what they say but the idea is boring. Its not funny. The shots are nice.

I think it's a bit too dark, but it works for me.

If you look at the hedge he was cutting, it doesn't make sense that he was stabbed in the back. He would have been stabbed in the front. I'm just saying...

This series is so bad, bothering or killing?

The dead guy is the one who was bothering his neighbors. Hence the noisy hedge trimmer at his side.
