Trying a bit too hard to be cute. Nice, clean photographic style, but the core concept is a bit too cloying.


Here, let me save everyone the trouble of asking. "Do you even work in advertising?"

Right, so you wouldn't mind getting laser eye surgery but, apart from the cost your a little concerned with the idea of someone cuttihng your eye open with a laser. I know what will help, imagine putting your eye into a sharpner and turning a handle to make a blade usually used for sharpening stationary cut your eye open.

This ad is fails because it needed someone to explain the whole thing.

Guess it depends on your point of view. I look at it and see the symbol for sight on the side of a pencil sharpener, and (to me, anyway) it's obvious: we sharpen your sight. Not that complicated.

Fail. You don't need someone to explain your concept lengthily,

People, please-please! Don't reference blades/sharp things/cutting/etc. etc. in lasik surgery ads. There's an ad here that says--in big bold letters: "Lasik without the blade!". And you know what I always think of? A big blade slicing through my eye!

So please, no cutting-my-eye references. ICK!
