Yuekou online teen girls store has 72 year old grandfather as their main model

It all began one day when grandpa wanted to show his granddaughter something about layering clothes to create a look, he put some on and before he knew it, the young women running the store made him their main muse. See Yuekou for the full picture of grandpa.

According to an interview with Ms. Lv, it all started when one day her grandpa Liu came to help with unpacking: “He picked up one piece and tried to give some advice on how to mix and match. We thought it was fun so we started shooting.”

Like netizen 东皇薄荷 commented: “He almost feels like Karl Lagerfeld!”

Greenpeace: Less Boats More Fish

There seems to be a rule for pro-bono advertising - the grammar and spelling usually sucks. The illustration however, is lovely.

Tuna industry must chart future with ‘less boats, more fish’ says Greenpeace. They do know their grammar, actually, as they write We need fewer boats, more fish to save our oceans, but that wouldn't fit as nicely on the poster.

Samsonite - Heaven & Hell - (print) - China

The company that created this animated visual feast is aptly named "Illusion", and I love how in China, the idea of air travel for humans is still a pampered angelic heaven, while the poor bags have to endure hell. Flying in to New York I must have been mistaken for luggage. Yes, it was hell, thanks for asking.

Kiwi Shoe Polish - Wet dream - print, China

With this campaign Grey Hong Kong are targeting the male audience who dream of teeny tiny women polishing their shoes. I'm not even going to try and understand the appeal in that. Is that some sort of tinkerbell fetish I've never heard of?

Levi's Unbuttoned - The Magazine - print, China

The rationale explains "Live unbuttoned is about expressing individuality, living outside conventions and shunning social restraint. So the 501's had to be advertised in the most unrestrained way" - so what do they do? Instead of having an ad inside the magazine they had the magazine inside the ad. Yep, they made little jeans that held the mags and you had to stick your hand down the pants to fish out the reading material. *snicker*
"The concept involved putting the ad outside the magazine. We completly "unbuttoned" how print advertising is approached." And naturally, a stunt is not complete without shilling it on eBay.
TBWA\TEQUILA\ Hong Kong are the guys to call when you want to make minitaure jeans, I guess.

Adidas - Impossible Jerseys - print, China

As the text on this image explains, the impossible Jerseys were given away with magazines in Hong kong an idea conceived by TBWA\TEQUILA\ Hong Kong:

In late 2007, Adidas briefed TBWA/TEQUILA Hong Kong to excite football fans about the new collection of 2008 adidas Federation Jerseys.
So we decided to recreate autographed jerseys, fold them and place them as cover inserts into Hong Kong’s number one selling youth magazine, MILK.
So overnight, stacks of adidas Federation Jerseys appeared on Hong Kong’s newsstands.
Fans would find France, Argentina, Germany and Spain and every single one was autographed.
It was the first time any magazine had been used to sell apparel in this way.
