Sometimes ads can even “make us feel seen” because the advertisers understand their target audiences on a deeper level. And, there are times when ads fall flat. We can tell the brand is trying, but it just doesn’t work.

In your initial post, respond to the following for BOTH ads, with detailed explanations:
