The other two are a campaign, this one is a different execution of the problem and too predictable which kills the humour. Ambulance and priest are funny.

I agree with the big fella here!
See it coming a mile off.
Besides, all their feet should be in the central, starting position.
How's life, mate?

The rest are all ware funny, although those were over exaggerated. But this one is really bad. They might be dreaming about the lady, thats why she won the game.Have a closer look at the match refery(the man with white& black, lying down on the flore, with the rest of the people)is looks like he is laughing.

This ad is the best one in the campaign. No question.
The other two visual gags feel a tad forced because of the way they're actually showing those affected "reacting" to the situation. Whereas this one is only showing you the "aftermath" of such tragic incident. ; ) The best humor print advertisng (more often than not) will only show you what's ABOUT TO happen or what's JUST happened.

Also, normally (without sounding like a sexist jerk) I think of bad breath as a guy's problem. (Yep, I said it! A guy's problem!!!) So, this particlar execution feels unexpected. And simply funny as hell!
A ring card girl with a killer body, a killer smile and a killer breath... Why didn't I think of that?

All they needed was for the one opponent to be knocked by the others breath before the fight had been started, in that sense it would have been less obvious.

Add insult to injury then burn the candle at both ends.
