cuando comés un asado no cortás tu porción de vaca y tirás el resto... no digo que esté bien desayunar tiburón, pero la campaña está mal enfocada

Doesn't look appetizing to me. And that's an awful lot of copy.

The top left paragraph could easily go without the ad losing any meaning.

I'm either/or on this. Which is to say, pick the copy chunk you want, the left-hand one or the center one, and go with it. Having the two throws the ad out of balance.

In terms of content and message, this is an important ad, don't get me wrong. But it smells of classic client back-peddling and second-guessing, the crippling effect of committee-think and wanting to have it both ways.

That's it.

Hmmmm... not good. And I'm talking about the concept, not the food.
