Virgin Atlantic - Soon (2006) Newspaper (UK)

A couple weeks ago this ad for Virgin Atlantic ran in UK newspapers. The word in the center of the ad is Arabic for "Soon". But it's also pretty neat that it also looks like an airplane.

Apparently that is what inspired the creatives behind this ad for new flights to Dubai, as they looked through an Arabic dictionary, hoping for some inspiration.

Toshiba print ad raises questions- (2006) Print (USA)

If I wasn't in advertising, I don't think what's stopping me would have been this Toshiba ad. The other day I came across it and it left me perplexed. But from the look on the model's face, it doesn't seem like I'm the only one. Perhaps you adgrunts can help shed some light on the situation. Is he standing outside a prison? (note the bars on the window) What's with the tool belt?
