Bynolyt Binoculars Print Ad - Eskimo Gets Smacked

Bynolyt Binoculars, this is a great fun print advert from Belgium. Sure the idea behind this advertisement has been done a million times, but I like it anyway; it is funny and unrealistic but who cares - it caught my attention and know I know Bynolyt Binoculars is in the business of selling binoculars. Isn't that what advertising is supposed to do?

The three ads below feature the new Mercedes CLS, the new SLK and the Mercedes Benz SL. The Mercedes Benz Dream Factory, same ad for all three models using different colors yet still an effective print ad campaign.

Mercedes Benz Print Ad - Fake? Student Work? Copy?

Just came across this new Mercedes Benz Print Ad for the new Mercedes Benz C-Class at Ads Of The World. Created for Mercedes Benz by Dentsu Beijiing, China the controversial ad titled Be Overwhelmed by the new C-Class seems to have created a bit of a stir in the forum there. Some advertising professionals hate the idea, seems to remind them of the Guiness Beer Ads.I do know that Mercedes Benz works the BBDO ad agency worldwide, this could simply be another fake or student work from Dentsu. By the way I don't like the ad either, this ad makes no sense to me and I'm sure Mercedes Benz would have wanted more of the C-Class Benz in the ad.

Kiss All Natural Tobacco - Controversial Print Ads

Kiss - All Natural Tobacco. This clever yet controversial print advertisement campaign, launched by Kiss cigarette Israel did not go without it's share of legal problems. Gee I wonder why? I'm sure my loyal readers don't need me to go into the details of why this ad campaign was stopped and a fine was issued by Israel's Health Ministry. The ad agency was guilty of using human figures to advertise tobacco. The agency claimed that the ads were works of art and that the audience they were intended for wouldn't be offended by the ads, they still got fined.

I kinda like em.

Dacia Renault Commercial Starring Fidel Castro & Other Notables In History

Commercial for the new station wagon by Dacia/Renault. TV Spot starring Che Guevara, Fidel Castro, Mao Tse-Tung, Karl Marx, Lenin, Martin Luther King, Rosa Luxemburg, Ho-Chi Minh and Mahatma Gandhi. Watching Castro walk through the bedroom with Gandhi in bed was hilarious.

Special thanks to Kathrin of Nordpol Hamburg for sending us this great commercial spot.

Absolut Vodka Pulls Its American Mexico Map Ad

Well it did not take too long to have this rather clever ad from Absolut Vodka and the advetising firm Teran/TBWA pulled after an uproar from the Americans. This controversial ad ran in Mexico and was not meant to be seen in the USA.
The Absolut Vodka advertisement which ran in Mexico showing a map of where the North American border stood before the Mexican-American War of 1848 (released by the Mexican advertising firm Teran/TBWA).

Although it was not shown in the United States, US media outlets picked up on the ad, and after a barrage of complaints, Absolut's maker said yesterday the ad campaign would cease.

Defending the campaign last week, Absolut maker Vin & Spirit said the ad was created "with a Mexican sensibility" and was not meant for the US market.

"In no way was this meant to offend or disparage, nor does it advocate an altering of borders, nor does it lend support to any anti-American sentiment, nor does it reflect immigration issues," a spokeswoman wrote on Absolut's website.

"Instead, it hearkens to a time which the population of Mexico may feel was more ideal," she wrote.

Absolut's blog site has received more than a thousand comments since the ad campaign was launched a few weeks ago, with many calling for boycotts of the Swedish company.

"I have poured the remainder of my Absolut bottles down the sink," one blogger wrote.

A war between Mexico and the United States from 1846 to 1848 started with Mexico's refusal to recognise the US annexation of Texas and ended with the occupation of Mexico City by US troops.

At the end, Mexico ceded nearly half of its territory to the United States, forming the states of California, Nevada, Utah and parts of Colorado, Arizona, New Mexico and Wyoming.

Sorry, what is the big deal here? That is what the map looked like back in 1846 did it not?

Mercator Insurance - Two Truly Great TV Commercials

Know one likes to think about buying insurance, but Mercator Insurance and their advertising firm came up with a few inspiring commercials that are funny, clever and simply great commercials.

The Mercator Insurance TV Spot: Never Trust Man was a 2007 Film Cristal award winner at the Meribel Ad Festival.
How real is this, men twisting their necks to get a good look at an attractive woman while walking down the street with their own wives. What a great commercial. The music is bang on too.

The tag line is priceless "Mercator Home Insurance. Because you're likely to move out someday.

Schick Quattro Great Print Ad Campaign: Tattoo

The first of these is a brilliant idea. Maybe it is just me who got the double meaning of this great ad. Obviously a woman shaving her pussy cat tattoo. The second could have the hidden meaning that men are more attractive with a clean cut smooth shave. Either way you look at them they are a creative print ad campaign.

Bad Advertising Oh Yes There is Plenty Of It

Who better to admit to making mistakes when advertising than Microsoft.
The idea above is a rather unique ambient way to advertise for an employment website.
And below simply a bad bus advertising campaign from career builder.
Still very funny though.

I'm not touching this one.

The idea behind this advertising campaign is a pretty good one at raising awareness , but aren't they going to be scaring the heck out of the little ones.
