Balloon animals and other condoms badlander

Thanks for purplesimon and Andreas-Udd for helping me recall where I had seen this trick before. Here's a small collection of condom balloon creatures.


Durex wheelbarrow from Ogilvy Singapore and Durex rabbit from Tonic Communications, Dubai. I like the rabbit, it's cheeky.

What's missing is inspiration. MMmkay?

Resume has a picture of a long billboard in Stockholm today that spells out the line: What's _issing _n St_ckholm?

Resumé reckons that they nicked the clever missing letters idea from the campaign for H&M that read: _HATS _ISSING in SOHO?. I saw those when I lived in New York in 2001, but didn't have my camera handy.

We'd just like to point to earlier ads in Badland ingle Ells for J&B and illeniu for M&M's, the M&M's did this eight years ago and the J&B ad is more than thirty years old.

Honorary Badlander: Plagiarizing books.

From the lazy way to write something department, celeb designer Jimmy Schönning in Sweden has admitted that he plagarized most of his book "Find Home" (Hitta hem) from celeb designer Nate Berkus book "Home Rules". Jimmy says to newspaper Aftonbladet "It was a pressed work situation, I was doing a lot of TV and had taken on too much work with magazines and interior decorating jobs in private homes. At the same time I was trying to complete a book project for the first time and it was all just too much.

A double barreled Badlander.

Been a while folks, so here's a couple of wine and beer bottles that'll have you seeing double. I don't think the creators should beat themselves up - or god forbid shoot themselves - over it though as we all have drawn this one, at least once.. Right? Hat tip to Johan Olsson for this pair.

Ads inside.

Brawndo the Thirst Mutilator vs Funny or Die video

So we're watching the new Brawndo ad thinking "is that even real!?" (yes, it is) when Jason from the Wurstgallery (totally worth a visit dudes), starts wagging a Badlandian finger at it saying it's like a second rate version of... dum dum DUM!

Oh you'll have to go inside to see what we mean. Cliffhanger! Ha!

The current Domino trend in advertising.

Adgrunt Hlebarov though we should send the Guinness tipping point to the Badland corner for doing the domino-thing that the Honda Cog (inspired by Der Lauf Der Dinge) already did way back in 2003, and I promised an honorable mention if we could get a hold of the Claes Ohlsson campaign. Thanks to another adgrunt, deep.ed a.k. Swedish ad blogger Researcher's tracking of the trend we have not one but five six more things to put in here with it!
Without further ado, Guinness vs Claes Ohlson, vs Sony vs Tekserve vs a Fat Boy Slim video. Seems Fat Boy slim videos are the main source of badlandian inspiration for some. Oh dear, I almost forgot Miller's "Dominoes" which fits here as well.

Clash of the Commercials II - Mother Truckers - Special Badland Edition

Two commercials go head to head in our Free-For-All AdLand Creative Death Cage.*
Who wins? Who ends up jackknifed in the ditch? You decide - that's what comments are for.

In this corner, it's a JCPenney one-day sale commercial for Saturday, November 3rd. In the other corner, it's a Steinmart one-day sale commercial for Saturday, November 10th. Ding! And there's the bell. Who wins?

* Actually, it's more like a one bedroom efficiency.

eBay vs. Sony

‘Tis the night before Christmas and all through Adland,
not a creature is stirring, not even a name brand.
My copy is hung by the chimney with care,
in hopes that a holiday badlander, soon will be there.

Back in 2000, Sony created a series of ads where good 'ol St. Nick is drugged and kidnapped. The pre-9/11 terrorists threatened that X-Mas would be canceled if people didn't shop at SonyStyle.com. The ads were pulled because the client thought they would be offensive.
