Ford - Berlusconi /Hilton & Schumacher with bound & gagged women in their trunk - scam ad, India

If anyone here can help me decipher how on earth anyone might think this was a good idea, feel free. The first ad has Silvio Berlusconi and his personal collection of bound and gagged barely clad women in his trunk, which sort of makes sense as I assume that's how he lets his girlfriends travel with him (zing!). Next there's Paris Hilton ­with a trio of Kardashians in her trunk, and the third ad puts some gender equality in it as Michael Schumacher stows away Sebastian Vettel, Fernando Alonso, and Lewis Hamilton in his trunk. Everyone has junk in their trunk! Wait, what?

ROC / Republic of Chicken - Fire scooter deliveries - (2011) case study (India)

ROC / Republic of Chicken - Fire scooter deliveries - (2011) case study (India)

ROC had a problem, people didn't order in food, because they believed that by the time it arrived it was cold. Not all deliveries suffered from delivering cold foods, and ROC never did, but how does one tell people they deliver hot food?

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.

Sugar Free floating billboard - hangs in the air (it's so light, geddit?)

Very interesting execution from Rediffusion Young and Rubicam in India, where they advertise Sugar Free (light) soda by hanging the billboard in the air. Yep. Huge helium balloons held this billboard up, and probably caught a lot of peoples attention.

Albert Dali Idiot Proof Names Posters

Pronunciation is the key for brand names. If there's even a minor handle for butchering of the name, a brand can become the laughing stock. That's why, you need idiot-proof names that work in all markets. Our new campaign turns the spotlight on this issue.

Kickback

The Indian Parliament has been stalling the passage of an Anti-Corruption bill for decades now. A new movement has been started by IndiaAgainstCorruption.org to force the government's hand on the bill. A 78-year old Gandhian activist Anna Hazare is on a fast unto death to turn the public spotlight on the issue. The advertising community in India is slowly joining the movement.

Onida Anti reflective LED TV - Hitler Gloria - India

India strikes again! I don't know what it is about their fascination with Hitler (in advertising), but they do love to use him. He's such a simple symbol, and here der führer has a gloria above his evil little head, as the ad is bragging about Onida's anti reflective LED TV's. Yeah, Onida, I'm not sure you want your brand name connected with Hitler.
