Worlds longest billboard in Berlin

Right now in Berlin, from the of 9th September until 7th October, Virgin Express is running the worlds longest outdoor billboard, no less than 1100 meters! The ad stretches from Kaiser-Wilhelm-Gedächtniskirche to the Zoologischer Garten.

Written in German of course, as copywriters there are blessed with a language that has words like Rindfleischetikettierungsüberwachungsaufgabenübertragungsgesetz and could probably make a five word headline cover the entire 1100 meters without breaking a sweat. ;)

Ads called too sexy in Mexico

An ad campaign to save sea turtles in Mexico is getting some people angry. The campaign by Wildcoast, a US based environmental group, aims to reach men who buy turtle eggs because they believe that they are a natural form of Viagra. The National Institute for Women (a government agency) objects to the stereotype of a woman as a sex object. The ads direct people to check out the Tortuga Marina website.

Read on for the controversy and to see the "too sexy" ads.

The Whole of Greece in One Smile

Eastman Kodak has created a record-setting photomontage celebrating the return of the Olympic Games to Athens, as well as celebrating Greek citizens.

"We decided to create something that would give all visitors to Athens the chance to share in the spirit of the Olympic Games," said Lazaros Piatopoulos, General Manager, Kodak Near East Inc. "The people of Greece were invited to send a picture and be part of history in the largest-ever photographic montage. The photos of the 16,609 Greeks that responded made up the face of a child, whose smile looks at the future with hope and awaits the ATHENS 2004 Olympic Games with pride."
