Worth watching twice.

I figured it out pretty early on. But you're right... that is a great ad.

I figured it out about halfway through, when I finally connected the windmill behind the actor with what was going on. It's very clever.

Took me a while, even though the clues are all there (nobody gets mad at him!). Very nicely done.

I figured it out pretty early on, probably because I knew there was something to figure out. But I didn't figure out what it was actually advertising until the end.

I figured it out early too (with the woman in red going down the stairs) but I also wonder if it would've taken maybe one scene longer without the clue that there was something to figure out.
It annoyed me that in the shots where he is sitting in the office, you can see the reflection of the boom mike operator in the picture on the wall behind him.

I had it from the third example or so, because nobody reacted to him, and it was simple to derive what was being advertised -- confirmed by the interview shots' background.

I think that if you know there's something to "figure out", it's not hard to figure out. But if you're just watching a story, without any idea that things are not what they seem, you're much less likely to figure it out. So I've changed my post to not spoil it.
didn't figure it out either, given no more clue than "watch this cool video", and I think it's more fun if the end is unexpected.

OK, I feel much better for not having figured it out, knowing that the post used to say something else. By halfway through I was going, "Right, right, we get it. He's a jackass, and I don't really need to see it again." Then I got to the end and watched it again.
