United Colors of Benetton Campaign Wins Press Lion Grand Prix

It's been a while since Benetton ads have won awards. They either weren't running many or they weren't as good or controversial as in the past. But Fabrica with the help of 72andSunny changed that, which is why their campaign took the Grand Prix in Press.

Flavour - Belly Flop / Towel / Puke / Hair - print, Denmark

BAM! You know the model who had to pose for this was holding on to his own head so as not to show a visible clenched butt expecting the sharp sting of a wet towel-slap. I wonder if models get paid extra for that. Nicely shot, Thomas Juul.

The puke thing though? Yeah, I don't know man. Kinda gross.

Benetton - Unhate - Kissing presidents, prime ministers and chancellors - (2011)

'What does 'unhate' mean? ' Un-hate. Stop hating, if you were hating. Unhate is a message that invites us to consider that hate and love are not as far away from each other as we think. Actually, the two opposing sentiments are often in a delicate and unstable balance. Our campaign promotes a shift in the balance.'
- Alessandro Benetton, Executive Vice President

By the way, back in 2003 this street art showed Saddam and Bush kissing so I'll add unoriginal to that.

Awesomerags fashion store uses "sex sells" mantra, makes predictable positions ad

Le yawn. Feels like we've seen this exact layout before, but I guess I should alert you to the "edgy" ad from Awesomerags which depicts their fashion models in various sexual postions. Fully clothed of course. Like previous ads before it, the layout homages an old kama sutra poster.
