It'll work, is the main thing. It doesn't matter that it's obvious or has been done. It's well done, it's colourful and looks eyecatching enough to get the audience. Translation issues ("suited [TO] something else".... "after [GRADUATION]") but all in all a straightforward set of effectiveness.

You have to be joking, CP. Of all things for you to actually like...this?! This is awful. Definitely, definitely disagree on this one.

I Like the way 'suited' plays two roles. The one for the costume and the second role for the job.

So why is this guy -- up there with his bandmates and his instrument, apparently set to go -- dressed like a clown? Is it saying that, if you tried to be a hipster musician today, you'd look like a buffoon, so get thee to Nackademin?

You might think that. But if that's it, then it means this one ad works differently from the other two, because the hairdresser ad looks like un-ironic old school ad-craft: Show her in the unglamorous setting she's in every day, but in the glamorous (?) costume that belies her dream vocation. (...Coulda been an astronaut get-up or a fireman's uniform; just happened to be a deep sea diver.) And the restaurant ad shows a haggard spatula monkey with apparent dreams of being a superheroine.

Applying the way the other two ads in this series work to this one, are we to infer that Nackademin has a clown specialization, and that this poor guy, trapped in the life of a hipster musician, longs to be a clown?

Would you mind, please, explaining these?
