    Meh. When you start with a one-shot sight gag like that, you end up being painfully predictable all the way through. Where's the surprise? None.

    "Playboy & Y&R South Africa show us everything by not showing us anything at all. Playboy and the trends they've seen have influenced mens hairstyles through the ages. Of course it has."

    You know when you try be a smartass and it just doesn't work and you end up just looking confused... Yeah, that just happened.

    Yo Mr AnonymousCoward from Cape Town, are you one of the people who worked on this ad? I think you're reading my line wrong, and confusing yourself.

    I think this is pretty funny. It is a one-shot visual gag though, and not much more than that. Works only for an established brand like Playboy, or Hustler where you actually see more of the hairy bits.
