I recently heard a commercial on the radio that had a character continuing to work despite having his hair on fire. It stated “you wouldn’t ignore this, why ignore the signs of a stroke?” I don't know, maybe because the signs of a stroke are just a wee bit subtler? I mean, I get it, strokes are very serious and shouldn’t be ignored, but this is a stupid way of framing it. Tell us the signs of stroke are just as important as having your head a flame – don’t just assume we know that. Other wise the comparison of numbness and slurred speech to a burning coif seems a little exaggerated.
