'Tate by Tube' - tube poster UK

One day David Booth had this puntastic but visually brilliant idea where the paint tube shows the name (Pimlico) and location of the tube station nearest the Tate Britain.

Tate by Tube.

'Tate by Tube' is the best selling poster in The London Transport Museum Shop. David should be chuffed.

AIDS poster "Don't forget your rubbers" 1984, USA

Why yes, that is Poltergeist actress Zelda Rubinstein in the role as a caring mother, reminding her gay son to bring his rubbers. This campaign ran all over Los Angeles at first, then went national, and all that way back in 1984.

Tag: L.A. Cares "Like a mother"

You've come a long way baby...."What a big beautiful diamond, your fiancé must be really rich"

...or have we? Ad fan Kariann sent us this scan of an ad she found in a 1980's womens fashion magazine. An early example of that "two months salary" rule - yikes. These days DeBeers pushes right hand rings to women, since nobody is getting married anymore. ;)

Full ad with all the horrible copy inside.

Labour isn't working - billboard 1978

This poster is often cited as being instrumental in the fall of James Callaghan's Labour administration, and certainly changed the way political advertising was done in the UK. It launched the brothers Saatchi's advertising agency kingdom and put Margaret Thatcher in power. All of this was done with a pun! Or play on words, if you prefer.
