If anyone here can help me decipher how on earth anyone might think this was a good idea, feel free. The first ad has Silvio Berlusconi and his personal collection of bound and gagged barely clad women in his trunk, which sort of makes sense as I assume that's how he lets his girlfriends travel with him (zing!). Next there's Paris Hilton with a trio of Kardashians in her trunk, and the third ad puts some gender equality in it as Michael Schumacher stows away Sebastian Vettel, Fernando Alonso, and Lewis Hamilton in his trunk. Everyone has junk in their trunk! Wait, what?
Placing these in central locations and at specific points on Obama's planned road trip, during his official visit to Israel on 20-22 March 2013, there to greet him on his way the headline simply reads "Pollard's been waiting since your college days". Jonathan Jay Pollard was born in Galveston, Texas and while working as an American civilian intelligence analyst, he passed classified information to Israel. He pleaded guilty and received a life sentence in 1987. As his crime occurred prior to November 1, 1987, he is eligible for parole, and may be released on November 21, 2015. Israel granted Pollard citizenship in 1995.
Playboy are trying their hand on being cutting edge advertisers, with this street poster that has augmented reality. First, you have to download the Layar app in order to be able to see the augmented reality attached to this street poster. Like the Lexus swimsuit model print ad which already used an extra layer to a print ad, the extra you get to see with this poster is simply more of the ladies. Unlike the Lexus ad though, there's more that just what meets the eye, as the Layar app unlocks music playlists and behind the scenes videos from the models photo shoots as well.
DDB Canada explains " We wanted to boil down the fundamental proposition of Crime Stoppers in the simplest most compelling way — if you witness a crime and report it, you retain your anonymity. This campaign strives to remind people of that simple truth. " The images show crimes being committed while obscuring the anonymous witness' face. Simple.
Supposedly someone at Dallas.sg the high falutin' restaurant for family parties and great big diners signed off on this double entendre, if you want to believe that. Yep, if you're so hungry you could eat a baby's arse through the bars of a cot, you should "try ours instead".
You know this would have worked had it been a restaurant and brothel.
The United Way of Greater Milwaukee and Serve Marketing bring teens a reality check, in time for Valentines Day. Basically telling teenaged girls no matter how much the idea of having a baby as a teen might sound appealing the minute you end up preggers the dude's gonna bounce. It also directs them to Babycanwait.com for more info.
I like the idea. I do think the tone and copy could have been more cruel to drive home the point.
Will this win awards? It's a clever way of reminding readers that non-readers won't get the full picture (pun!) because they can't read the text. The "Bikini" looks quite a bit like H&M ads of yore, the red car ad might as well be for Renault. Perhaps this campaign will be awarded later in the season.
Outdoor advertising company JCDecaux and Y&R wants Israelis to adopt an animal. Best way to do it, besides using the out of home space? To remind people that true "like," is out there, waiting to be adopted.
The second in this campaign should be something along the lines of "Poking should only be on facebook. please spay or neuter your pet."
That's a freebie, guys. I don't even need a slash in the credits.
TBWA commissioned Erik Almås to create a memorable images Absolut. Though Sid Lee has recently won global duties on Absolut, and will produce the next global campaign this summer, this TBWA campaign is more in keeping with the work Absolut had produced over the past thirty plus years: I.E., the bottle front and center, and a two word headline beginning with "Absolut."
As for the images, everything you see was captured in camera, to scale of an actual size Absolut bottle.
This is one of the few times I wished I could see a making-of video as I think it would have captured the oompf more.
It's really hard to make great ads, and even harder to get into the award shows and Luerzer's Archive, so Y&R Israel is saying, don't kill yourself over craft. Write some radio instead.
Excuse me? Listen to the Mercury Awards from any previous year and tell me that was easy to come up with, that you didn't need craft to make it happen.
