I love the idea, but I agree that the "aha" should have been more dramatic.

great idea, but i think that 'cures' is the wrong word. it's just not what bandaids do. i'd suggest 'heals' on the spot, but that has a funky ring to it.

Çures all wounds"? Since when did band aids start çuring wounds? Does the agency have one English educated copywriter or have they been replaced with art directors?

Yes it should be 'heals', not 'cures', but no need to be so harsh...this is a great idea nonetheless.

This ad is really easy to decode, I'm surprised you don't get it. The bandaid covers the wound on her ring finger, but doesn't heal her ended marriage (because the ring is off). This has universal appeal too. You're entitled to your opinion but just because you don't get it, doesn't mean it's a waste of money.
