I think this one could use a little more subtlety in terms of its persuasive techniques. We’ve got a dozen bathing beauties, a Hefner look-alike in the background, and a pool boy. At what point in looking at this are we supposed to be thinking about Volkswagen?
This one is pretty beautiful, I think. As it should, it makes me think of a work of art, and makes the connection that when you’re using Braun, you’re not just cooking but creating art. Sure, a whisk is a whisk, but if you’re an artist, not just any whisk will do. According to Braun, at least.
