Booze that bites - visuals that bite

A poster campaign for Black Ice (Smirnoff) currently running in the UK shows a bottle that bites, I guess they want to say that the drink has a bite. But doesn't everyone advertising alcohol want to say just that? Here's a cold case of coincidence.

Poses overexposed!

How do you take a picture of someone taking a picture? With a camera covering their eye, of course - it's just that some poses are becoming overexposed.......

Cult shaker at it again, doubles the nudes.

Cult Shaker didn't get enough attention for their last stunt I suppose, and are at it again, begging for hype by covering bus posters and other outdoor media with two nude frolicking women but no selling point.

And once again, Kvindeligt Selskab reported them for "making the public space pornographic". Someone has vandalized most of the poster spaces already, with good old fashioned black spraypaint, which we presume Cult will have to foot the removal bill for.

Queen vs Bauer & Borsato

A strange coincidence, a fluke or a case of getting a little too inspired? Either way this is an odd couple, Queen vs Dutch singers Bauer & Borsato. Hat tip for these twins goes to adgrunt JLB.

UK bans junk food ads aimed at children

It was bound to happen after all the alerts in the news about advertising effects on children, and how it was linked to obesity. When a paediatrician recently said that "advertisments aimed at children were a form of child abuse and should be banned" we sorta knew the bans would come soon. The Age in Australia reports that UK bans junk food ads on TV for children and the austrailians probably won't be far behind in taking similar action.

No nipples please, we're British.

The offending nipple-scene, above.

An ad that encourages Europeans to vote has been re-edited for Britain, editing out part of a scene where a young woman breastfeeds her baby.
The CAA felt it was too overtly sexual for it to be given a universal certificate. In all the other European Union countries the nipple version will air uncut, the voiceover says: "You've been voting since you were born: don't stop now - European parliament elections, 10th of June."

Armani in trouble over ad that "sexualized children"

Don't try and look as cool as the Hanson boys if you're an androgynous fella with long hair under the age of ten.

Goodby Ripping Off. . . McClain Finlon?

To be fair, I don't know who is ripping off who here. Of course, it's also possible that it could all be a coincidence - a freak occurance that defies the laws of man and nature, like Tunguska blast of 1908 or Paris Hilton's celebrity.

What a pair of boobs

Two years ago radioshow hosts Jim Krenn and Randy Baumann got some media attention for their billboard, this year radioshow hosts Lex and Terry are getting media attention for the same tasteless tactic.

They both plastered giant boobs on a billboard.

Milk - where did you get that mustache?

It took me way too many years to find the "original" mustache campaign that I remember from when I was a little kid - found deep down in the dusty archives of the Swedish Arla Milk products company, photos of famous people posing with big white mustaches. Concept ring a bell?
