    So getting their sums wrong gets them this extra publicity. I can't see them sacking their advertising agency.

    Who cares about that. Publicising the error is actually quite important. I will be using that ad in one of my classes soon (when I teach, which I don't much, it's Maths).
    Can we just take it as read I didn't mean to offend you?

    Are you sure its Nature Valley who have got their sums wrong.

    Perhaps "Deliciousness" is compounded rather than simple addition

    Also the ad only says they "wanted" to increase deliciousness by 200%, it does'nt say they were succesfull
    Keep the noise down, I'm trying to sleep!

    There's no such thing as bad publicity!

    They have pulled a great stunt here.
