Louis Vuitton - Keith Richards (2008) Print (USA)

Louis Vuitton follows up the much talked about Gorbachev print ad from 2007 with yet another celebrity and their luggage. This time it's the well-aged and well-preserved Keith Richards of The Rolling Stones. At least no one can do any talking about retouching the celebrity in this ad. ;)

Alka seltzer - Piranhas and crocodiles - print Thailand

Another print ad execution for Alka Seltzer from JWT Bangkok, Thailand. Confusing since BBDO Bangkok just did this awesome high-speed stroboscopic photography style campaign which easily falls under the category "teh ossom". So who in Bangkok has the alka-seltzer account, I wonder? Everybody?

Taj Tea - Divine tea - print, India

Holy stunning photography batman!

 

The Taj Tea Trail is a tea-tasting event organised by Brooke Bond Taj Mahal tea. Here people get to sample the finest collection of teas and discover fascinating trivia about the drink. These posters, via O&M Mumbai, were created as masterpieces using actual Taj Mahal tea granules. Displayed on easels like work of art, these posters helped glorify this golden drink.

 

I don't even drink tea anymore, but these ads are mighty tempting if only to watch the swirls of golden tea escape in the hot water... Mmmm.

Miss Epil - a hairy djungle - print France

Lowe Strateus, Paris, has created this campaign asking women to please use Miss Epil. Looking at this campaign my first reaction isn't to go hairless, but to get a bigger man. (oh yeah, I went there.)

World Water Day - how to make water out of urine - print, India

For world water day Ogilvy & Mather, Mumbai decided to go the educational route and actually tech us how to make your urine drinkable water in this poster, which looks a lot like old school posters in its Art Direction/ Illustration style.

It's pretty simply actually, all you need is a hole in the ground, a bucket, some tarp and rocks, the sun itself and then of course, your pee. In fact I hear that the übertough French foreign league men and Chilean army soldiers do this all the time. So next time you're at a loss for water, here you go.

RSPCA - Tea Towel - Australia

This tea towel was created for the RSPCA Summer Appeal by M&C Saatchi, Melbourne - RSPCA Victoria need to raise money during their Summer Appeal to help drought affected animals.

I've seen lovely printed tea towels in advertising before, but none punning on the fact that tea towels indeed get wet. Have you?
