Hawaiian Tropic Pink Bits – Minimize the sun – Maximum Protection is their motto - and you have no idea how much restraint was needed to prevent me from cracking a joke about Pigs in space here. Oh, shoot.
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.
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.
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.
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.

* 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.
Mother New York and the Swedish Dream Team, dream up an awesome drunken vacation for rum. Yes I said Drunk, they're playing croquet in the water. Drunk with flair, my man.
2.9 years ago, 10 Cane Rum changed the world of luxury rum by becoming the first ever luxury
rum and creating the category itself. The product was launched with one of the best advertising
campaigns in the world, a super-fitting introduction to what was and still is, the world’s best rum.
Black and white, iconographic images... all taken on the soil of its birthplace, Trinidad.
In early March 2008, 10 Cane and Mother are officially moving on. Still sophisticated, still totally
relaxed, this time we’ll find the 10 Cane crew living life supreme and slow at an unnamed
Yes! The headline rhymed! I am easily amused today.
Port of Spain, so exotic to me, has the same problems as everyone else, like drunk driving. Here's a PSA campaign showing off Saatchi&Saatchi's skill - created by Chris Guinness (AD & CW) and Creative Director Jon Slater.
There's also a TV spot from the campaign here.
Actual ad which will run in Toronto newspapers. The text reads:
"At Virgin Mobile, you're more than just a number. When you call us we'll treat you like a person, not a client. Whether you're #9 or #900, you'll get hooked up with somebody who'll finally treat you just how you want to be treated."
To advertise their sharp knives, the brand name which I can not read (is it "long term"?) and ad agency "invisible", guangzhou cut really intricate motifs in thick paper posters and hung them in appropriate places.
A door God, a few lucky fish and a gorgeous looking vase inside.
Who said Chinese advertising was naive? This is fantastic! I want some!
