Alka Seltzer cuts through food, Thailand

BBDO Bangkok shows that Alka-seltzer can cut through any heavy food in this print series. Is it possible to get a raging case of tent-pants when you look at an ad? Uhm.. when you're a girl? No? Never mind then, forget I even mentioned it, I'm just going to go take a cold shower....

El Tesoro Tequila - "Hand made" - print USA

Did you know that El Tesoro is hand made, using the same methods they used way back in 1937? No? Well, Publicis Mid America in Dallas created this visual to inform you. Or freak you right the hell out. I get it, sure but also, that's the kind of stuff I see when I've had one tequila too many and before it goes all black so now I'm scared. Hold me.

Sexy Camera soap dispenser "up-skirt" guerrilla

Oh god, remember that Axe upskirt mousepad thing? Here's a new variation - an upskirt soap dispenser.

Sexy Camera è la nuova candid camera erotica in onda da marzo su "FX", un canale della famiglia FOX Channels.

Wait, did they say family-channel? Ah, no, it says FX is part of the FOX channel-family. Phew. Wow this would be so much easier if the release was in a language I didn't have to guess my way around. (Fun fact, we get releases in French, Hebrew and Italian!) The actresses on the show are real porn stars I gather. These dispensers were placed in bars and gyms - mens rooms only.

Pepper Spray ads from Lowe Bangkok, Thailand

Lowe Bangkok give us this graphic - without being "graphic", geddit? - treatment for Pepper Spray. Now here's a product I never thought I'd see advertised with shiny double-page spreads. Heck, when I invested in my first imported (seriously illegal) pepper spray many moons ago, the packaging text was all I needed. On my mates French police spray it read "paralyse" and 10%, on my 16% it read "paralyse constant" - sold! And yes, I've even had to use it. Apologies to the now probably blind guy but I told you to leave me the hell alone three times yet you followed me into the graveyard at four in the morning - be glad you're still breathing.

Ariel goes all "subliminal stain" in Indian press ads.

Saatchi & Saatchi in Mumbai have cracked an Ariel brief with this very interesting, almost subliminal, execution. The tag "no stains, no memories" is illustrated by stains that tell you the story of how they came to be. In the lipstick stain, there's scenes of love. Neat. Two other executions inside.

Young & Rubicam's beautiful campaign for Novo Radio FM

Dear Adland adgrunts*, who here loves vinyl as much as I do? Raise of hands! Kay! This means you love music too - and quite possibly that you'll love this beautifully illustrated campaign from Young & Rubicam in France for French Radio FM. You can practically smell the vinyl. Much like with the music that each poster shows, I can't pick a favorite! All sorts of music styles are shown, and the Godfather of Funk James Brown gets his own execution.

James Brown illustrator: Richard Mongenet

* Yeah, I'm going to begin an annoying habit of talking about Dabitch in third person and naming the site constantly, as I get wigged out when I find posts on other websites, where Dabitch is talking about Dabich's life but the other websites seem to imply that some random dude was the writer and thus talking about random dudes life. Dabitch feels this is a really strange way of serving feeds and/or reposting posts. Dabitch has spoken.

Eight more executions inside. Young & Rubicam really go all out when they do a campaign.
