This ad was entertaining enough, but not quite as effective as I thought it could have been. I was surprised to see "Captain Obvious" used as the persona, but feel like he could be a good mascot for the company. However, I felt that his role in this ad wasn't needed. When Gary got locked out of his room he wasn't in need of booking a new hotel or a new room, but rather he just needed a new card. Whether Gary went through to book his room is completely irrelevant and made Captain Obvious' role rather meaningless in this commercial. I did find the end of the commercial funny when some of Gary's friends or business partners saw him in his underwear. Overall, I thought the ad comical enough, but not very effective in promoting

I think this advertisement was pretty entertaining however I felt the point of the advertisement was a bit forced. The captain obvious is a great idea and I think he could be used over and over in upcoming advertisements for However I was confused on why Captain Obvious was telling him how to book a hotel room when he's already in a hotel room? I feel the commercial would have made more sense had Captain Obvious told him about booking a hotel room maybe after his friends saw him in his underwear, maybe as if like a "you embarrassed yourself here so you should go somewhere else" type scenario. However it was still comical and left with a short sentence that people would probably repeat to others "it's Wednesday, Gary!" Sometimes that is all a commercial needs is something that is short and sticks with people that is funny and that they could repeat at other events.
