In 1994 W+K created "The Wall" for Nike. Famous football players (soccer to the Americans) on buildings head, kick, and pass a soccer ball to various cities around the world.
In 2004, EA Sports aired "Traveling Mural" for their Street Football video game where football (the American kind) players pass, tackle, and rush from building to builing.

Pentax has launched a new camera with the odd name *ist.
To announce their new gem they took out full page ads in Swedish photography magazine FOTO carrying the headline: "A perfect body with all the right accessories."

The image they choose to go with that headline is tarnishing their image..... Read more to see the ad.

After seeing Grey Aukland's Cannes award winning ad for No Bugs insect spray, I thought I had seen something very similar before, besides the Gary Larson cartoon. Combing through Luerzer's Archive, I found it. Compare them for yourself.

The Media Guardian reports the ASA has banned a poster campaign for Red Devil, a popular energy drink by Britvic, after upholding two complaints that it made "offensive" references to anal sex.

From the article: The poster adverts, for Red Devil, carried the innuendo-laden slogans "He was going so fast he went for the wrong entrance" and "Once he'd found the right zone, she was raring to go".

Soft drinks giant Britvic, which makes Red Devil, agreed the wording in the adverts was "suggestive" but argued they were "playful and cheeky".

The Media Guardian reports that the Mr. Kipling Christmas ad campaign, which shows a woman giving birth to a baby girl during a nativity play, has received over 100 complaints in the UK.

The TV commercial, created by Saatchi & Saatchi, has been branded "blasphemous" and "offensive" by viewers.

The advert opens with a shot of a screaming woman named Mary apparently about to give birth. When the camera pans out it becomes apparent she is acting in a badly acted nativity play.

Here are two great campaigns that were separated at birth. One's for a charity and the other's for a big international bank. Hmmm...who will you side with?

The UK advertising watchdog (ASA) has banned a Rizla advert because it could be seen as condoning the use of cannabis.

The Rizla ad carried the line "Twist and Burn" - immediatly a rival brand complained to the ASA and claimed the ad "condoned the product's use for the consumption of illegal drugs".

The ASA carried out an investigation and found that, in some dictionaries, "twist" was a slang term for a cannabis joint and "burn" could be referred to smoking one, they also added that 'cannabis cigarettes are normally fatter than those filled with tobacco and twisted at one end to prevent the contents falling out.' wow, they know their stuff. ;)

Boots made a booboo, showing an image of Jamie Oliver in the Boots Christmas Gift Guide - the catalogue is now being hastily withdrawn.

Oliver graces the cover of the calender, but some peoples imagination went haywire, and to them it looked like someone had crudely appended a penis onto the picture of the naked chef.

Alas, the offending item between Olivers legs is an innocent bag of fruit. It's when the image is scaled down things get bit fuzzy....

Barnardo's uses shock tactics to tackle child poverty, this strategy has backfired. More than 60 people contacted the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) through its website, and dozens of people called the within hours of the ads appearing.

The first in the series of newspaper adverts from Barnardo's shows a new-born baby with a cockroach crawling out of his mouth. Another advert in the "silver spoons" campaign features a baby with a methylated spirits bottle in its mouth while a third shows a baby with a syringe.

The headline on the adverts says: "There are no silver spoons for children born into poverty." Read more to see the ads.

WE sweden are in trouble for the way they advertise their underwear. While the men's packaging shows a overweight hairy man, the woman's packaging shows a girl's bottom still red after being freshly spanked.
So far six eloquent complaints have been filed with ERK (ethical advisory board in advertising) prompting the company to remove the spanked image. Greger Hagelin, CEO for WE, defends the image with "we're a skater brand, the idea was that the girl might have fallen off a skateboard."
