Samsonite - Heaven & Hell - (print) - China

The company that created this animated visual feast is aptly named "Illusion", and I love how in China, the idea of air travel for humans is still a pampered angelic heaven, while the poor bags have to endure hell. Flying in to New York I must have been mistaken for luggage. Yes, it was hell, thanks for asking.

Daniel Craig might be fully dressed but Rooney Mara is basically nude, apart from the piercings. To allow the film poster to be viewed in public spaces, the launch date obscures her nipple, just so. Click the arrow to see the next image for a poster where Rooney Mara lets it all hang out.

UNICEF Venezuela - Breast Milk is Liquid Gold - case study, p.o.s and PSA

In Venezuela over 70% of mothers do not breastfeed. Unicef set out to change this, as mothers milk really is better, and with Leo Burnett they turned breastmilk into a brand ready to compete with all the formulas out there. There was packaging in stores, with a stylistic breast drawn on it of course, and commercials to boot.

Barkach explains :

We made a logo, a package and a whole advertising campaign to promote BreastMilk as a brand, in order to compete hand by hand, advertisingly speaking, against all the artificial formulas in the market.
...
Is a David versus Goliath kind of fight, that is why we are arming David with a Bazooka.

Aaah, barbershops. The proper places for men to get their hair cut, shaved and buzzed. No fancy-smancy lavender scented oils, no neon lit salon where your hairdresser has Farah Fawcett's do and hip-wiggle. Barbershops are basic, and traditional. They know the buzzcut, the burr, the businessmans cut. The know how to use clippers and how to taper your neckline and trim your sideburns.

Interbest Outdoor company threatens: advertise here or he gets naked!

Strippers sell! Even if you really don't want to see anyone naked, as your drive to work on your morning commute. This guy was plastered on a large billboard and as the days passed, he stripped off little by little. The line? "The sooner you advertise here, the better..." Right, lets get a half-naked fit young woman up there instead. Poor doofus-dad.
