Find the copy rather too glibly leaps to the point they are determined to make -- a forced moral, in other words. More adults complain about sea monkeys, in hindsight, than they ever did as children.

That's it.

agree.. the connection is a bit forced, and i thought sea monkeys were awesome when i was a little kid.

from an art standpoint however, i love the type treatment, especially for a product like this.

There's nothing engaging about this, and the copy comes off as preachy and uninspired. I do like the karate one though as it is more insightful and teaches the importance of investment. It's a tough category to do interesting work and while this tries more than others, it's nothing special unfortunately.

The layout works - it's the type treatment that I find interesting. Is this consistent with a theme or campaign so that its a recognizable element? It would work fine without the bars. I don't know why others are so critical about the copy - it's not their service that's out on the chopping block. It tells a story and I understand the tie-in. I think it works.
