I completely disagree. This is a very good campaign with a great tag line. A shortlist at the Cannes festival.

Basically, they are exaggerating the intelligence of a Holiday Inn patron. The security guard calls to a Holiday Inn guest (smart person) to help the man who has fainted. The doctor offers his help, but the security guard calls again for a Holiday Inn guest (someone smarter than a doctor). Pretty funny. Interesting way to show smart.
