Dress To Kill by Wallis

This is why advertising works. I had never heard of Wallis before I saw this ad.
Now gentlemen I ask you...How many times have you lost site of the road to stare at a beautiful woman walking down the street?
Sexy, funny and smart, this is what advertising is all about.

Levi, Very Sexy Print Advert

Just in case you didn't notice, this is an ad for Levis Jeans.
I like it, I'm not so sure this young lady is really going to be very clean where it matters after this shower, but who cares it's sexy and it works.

Need To Lose A Little Weight Before Your Wedding?

This ad is priceless, it ties product benefit directly into the message.

Not So Smart AD Placement

Nothing funny unique or very clever about these billboards at all....
But, what the heck was Viacom thinking when they placed this obesity ad just above
a billboard for Mcdonalds?

Life's Short Get A Divorce

A racy billboard proclaiming "Life's short. Get a divorce" caused such an uproar that city workers stripped it from its downtown perch Tuesday after a week.

It wasn't so much about the partially clothed man and woman on the law firm's ad. It was the phrase that lawyers Corri Fetman and Kelly Garland chose that drew scores of complaints from neighbors and from other attorneys who said it reflected poorly on their profession.

A city alderman who lives nearby found a technical reason to jettison the sign.

"I called the building inspector and told him to do his job and he did," said Alderman Burton Natarus. "It has nothing to do with content or anything else. They did not have a permit and they were ordered to take it down."

Fetman and Garland say they're upset the sign was removed.

"They ripped our billboard down without due process," Fetman said. "We own that art. I feel violated."

Despite its brief run, the sign apparently was good for business. Since it went up last week, the two attorneys said calls to their law firm have gone up dramatically.

Sex Sells, Paris Hilton

The old adage "sex sells" has raised its controversial head recently in a series of TV commercials that offer the promise of sex (or sexual experience) if you buy the sponsor's product.

Take Paris Hilton, a socialite-turned-actress, whose current 30- second appearance in a Carl's Jr. "That's Hot" Spicy BBQ burger campaign is turning heads. Scantily clad in a sexy and revealing swimsuit., Paris seductively washes a black Bentley automobile with wild, soapy abandon.

In between sudsing the car and herself, Paris pulls out a hefty Carl's Jr. hamburger which she sensuously devours on camera for an intended target audience of adolescent male (and assorted lesbian) consumers.

“This commercial is basically soft-core porn,” said Melissa Caldwell, research director for the Parents Television Council. “It’s inappropriate for television.”

Hilton's ad is similar to a 30-second Monday Night Football TV commercial for Sirius Satellite Radio starring Pamela Anderson who wore a wet tank-top as she scrubbed down a young man's car with her curvaceous body (and polished the chrome with her bottom).

Everything Is Sexier In Paris, Las Vegas

Everything is Sexier In Paris, Las Vegas!
I love these ads, they are sexy, funny and tastefully done.
Not only does what happens in Vegas stay in Vegas but everything really does seem to be sexier in Paris, Las Vegas.

Bellyvision, coming to a sidewalk near you

As advertisers have known for years “sex sells” so by painting adverts onto the regions we all want to look at anyway, it is a guaranteed way to get an advert noticed.
Models in London are being paid £30 to have their toned tums painted and then strut their stuff around town and for a change we can stare without fear of being slapped. It’s an interesting idea and they could be advertising anything besides we don’t need many an excuse to stare at a women with a bit of flesh on show (and there’s even a bloke for our female readers)
This new advertising is known as “Bellyvision” though I reckon Bellyvert or Bellysense has a better ring to it.

Creative Advert

Wow, I'm speechless on this one. I'll admit it caught my attention, but the more I think about it the more I like it, sorry but I do like it you have to have guts to run an ad like this.

Gucci Advert or Soft Porn?

What exactly is Gucci selling me with this advert?
The fashion industry is a strange bunch, its porn to me.
Maybe this guy is just trying to read the dumb tatoo.
Gucci, you lost me on this one and please, someone feed that model!

Dolce & Gabbana, Art or Filth?

You want a scandal with legs? Dolce & Gabbana will give you that scandal.Dolce & Gabbana, great advertising or simply disgusting?
Nice clothes anyway.

Sophistication......Not Anymore

One thinks of Bentley automobiles as elegant, aristocratic and refined...


This advert is fabulous, when you think about Bentley's sophistication, you would never expect it. I love it!

Airplane Window Advertising

Fiat takes great advantage of a plane's window

It's difficult to imagine a better use of an airplane's window and shade than this brand awareness effort on behalf of the sunroofed Fiat Sky-Dome.

The Making of A Great Commercial "Sony Bravia"

I enjoy the behind the scenes almost as much as viewing the finished commercials that we see on TV. This a fantastic clip of a behind the scenes look at the making of one of the greatest commercials ever made - The Sony Bravia Advert.

"When you're introducing the next generation of television, you want to make an impact - but that doesn't mean you have to be predictable. To announce the arrival of the new BRAVIA LCD and SXRD range, we want to get across a simple message - that the colour you'll see on these screens will be 'like no other."...Quote from Sony

Our latest TV ad - featuring massive paint explosions - took 10 days and 250 people to film. Huge quantities of paint were needed to accomplish this, which had to be delivered in 1 tonne trucks and mixed on-site by 20 people.

The effect was stunning, but afterwards a major clean-up operation was required to clear away all that paint!

The cleaning took 5 days and 60 people. Thankfully, the use of a special water-based paint made it easy to scrape-up once the water had evaporated.

Keeping everyone safe was also an important factor. A special kind of non-toxic paint was used that is safe enough to drink (it contains the same thickeners that are sometimes used in soups). It was also completely harmless to the skin.

The Director: Jonathan Glazer - The new BRAVIA TV commercial will be directed by award-winning director Jonathan Glazer, who is responsible for a dazzling array of original work in the fields of commercial, music video and film production.His credits include videos for bands such as Jamiroquai, Massive Attack and Radiohead, some of the most memorable ads for Guinness and Stella Artois, and the feature films Birth and Sexy Beast.

Great Car Ads from BMW, Audi and Subaru

This is automobile advertising at it's finest, I love companies that can attack each other without being overly harsh or insulting. BMW, Audi and Subaru did a great job with these clever print ads. You have to wonder though if the three guys from BMW, Audi and Subaru got together one afternoon and had a few beers together before they came up with these great ads.
When you look at the three ads together like this, Subaru comes out with the last laugh though.

YouTube, Hilarious Bud Light Beer Commercial

Bud Light does it again, this commercial is possibly the funniest beer commercial made to date. You have to take 2 minutes and watch it twice at the very least, the cockatoo even scared me!
Budweiser you rock!!

Rolling Stone Magazine, early years of advertising

Rolling Stone Magazine, early advertising

Back in the '70s, the notorious anti-establishment, self-proclaimed gonzo journalist Hunter S. Thompson was managing editor of Rolling Stone. He authored a subscription renewal letter that was completely different from what any other magazine had ever contemplated.

The letter, short and to the point, declared that Rolling Stone was Thompson's only legitimate source of income. It went on to say that if you didn't respond, he would be thrown into utter despair and probably wind up in Needles, California, "sucking from a nitric oxide tank down to the bottom death blast of freon, listening to German tourists describe their coyote sightings."

Basically, Thompson threatened the recipient, demanding a response, or else. To underline the warning, the outside envelope featured "I KNOW WHERE YOU LIVE," scrawled in large handwriting across the front. Not your everyday Time or Newsweek renewal letter, to be sure.

This direct mail subscription effort was a huge success, and Rolling Stone used it the entire time Thompson was on the payroll. It was so much fun to read. So different. So Hunter Thompson. So exciting.

Youtube: Motorola commercial, your wife called
