I'm surprised with that copy you chose to point out the full stop.

The copy is quite stilted and vaguely confusing, but that's likely a translation issue. I think the idea of the campaign is decent but I would like to see some kind of call to action for the consumer. I feel the campaign stops too short of accomplishing something.

- Commenting in all caps with poor spelling and grammar is so done before -
