Can you please explain this ad?

Do your customers have a hard time seeing a 4 ft. bottle? And if so, how can they read your headline?

Even though I wasn’t a fan, I could at least understand the earlier Ketel One ads where the campaign had an elitist tone and aimed for the upmarket clientele.  But this one is part of a new campaign that brings down the tone of the brand.
