Biomen - "Hitler recommends Shampoo for men" - (2012)

Biomen - "Hitler recommends Shampoo for men" - (2012)

Oh HELLO, here's the hat trick of offensivenesss, it's not just the real Hitler, used in an ad, but it's also a misogynist shill to teach people that real men (which presumably the mass murdering dictator was), don't use women's shampoo. For serious, the VO is translated as such:

If you're not wearing women's clothes, you shouldn't be using women's shampoo either. Here it is. A real man's shampoo. Biomen.
Real men use Biomen.

Panorama Hair Transit Ad

A mirrored ceiling ad for rapid transit trains to give follicly challenged commuters a panoramic view of their comb overs. The average Canadian takes 26 minutes to commute to work so that's plenty of time to look overhead and consider a receding hairline.

Australian Surfer Sunblock - Localism / Duff / Punked - print, Australia

The beaches of Australia are apparently as dangerous as the rest of the country which is full of scary stuff. Australia's wildlife includes seventeen of the world's most deadly snakes, killer spiders, poisonous jellyfish and fast-running saltwater crocodiles who lay in wait for you if you take the same path twice. If any of that doesn't get you, the sun will try and kill you too.

Osteoarthritis can make your bones collapse like WTC in 9/11

I'm not all too familiar with Osteoarthritis, but according to this ad it can make your knees collapse like the world trade center twin towers did in 9/11. Scary stuff, I better take some meds.

Not the first ad from the world of adland to have the twin towers as visual, eaten by cookie monsters and with plances crashing into them. We collected a few pre-9/11 and post 9/11 ads under that link.

OH MY LORD! A mini meteor threatens the capitol! Quick, call the intern super hero! And hey check that out, the Copenhagen Opera house serves as the outdoor shot for the super-hero headquarters. Makes sense they'd use that place as HQ.
