I like how they play with the word 'lost' but that's the only thing. I don't feel this ad is very engaging.

I like this one the best because you do not have to see an expression on the man's face. The body language alone carries a very lonesome feel that I think works better than just a frown and eyes that stare into the abyss.

Agree mpindy. The body language really conveys that sense of despair. My only reservation is that these people look so devestated and hopeless I wonder if they can summon up the fortitude to hit the gym and reclaim their lost self-esteem.

This suggests he was actually confident about the way he looked before he started chatting her up... That's very bold of him. Respect.

I love this ad. I think it comes close to being offensive but doesn't cross the line, and has a huge emotional impact. If you have ever had to look through hundreds of gym ads in a week you will understand how special and different this ad is.
