PSA Stivoro anti smoking - Pyramids / Motorcycles / Choo shoes - the netherlands

You know, I've recently given up my pack-a-day habit and it's not really a good thing if your visual makes me twitch looking for a lighter. It's also not so good if the whole 'sculpt a picture out of cigarettes' execution been used before like with the Hitler and Bin Ladin posters created from cigarettes. To make it even more badlandery, the idea of how much money you spend (read waste) on smoking has been explored before as well. Still, it's a rather arresting visual so I hope it does hit home with some in the target.

Heineken - This is the Game / Rugby world cup 2011

Oooh. Three of my favorite things in one ad, men in kilts, rugby, and men built like redwood trees wearing tiny shorts slamming into each other on the field. Oh right, that's rugby.

Hyundai Veloster -  Death (fooled) - (2011) :30 (The Netherlands)

The board of directors at Hyundai did not approve this ad, as they deemed it "too shocking for our brand", but it's still quite a funny and effective idea showing off the three-door car.

These pioneers serve as an inspiration for the city and embody the 'Go Forth’'spirit. Vhils sculpted the portraits of pioneers Fadi Saad, Various & Gould, Joe Hatchiban and Sven Marquardt into major building facades dotted throughout Berlin.

This "Making of" documentary capturing Vhils’ at work complements the murals themselves.

Heineken - the Date - (2011) :90

Heineken - the Date - (2011) :90

Heineken are upping "the entrance", this time with a date that is inspired by Goodfellas and a wild party in Chinatown. Guillaume Dolmans plays the perfect date who brings his lady through the restaurant kitchen, bumps into a magician, has a shadow-fight with a chinese dragon and then invents new dance-moves. The best part of this ad is how the "making of" clip keeps up the idea that Guillaume Dolmans is all kinds of awesome. Oh, and it's all based on scenes from w+k ECD Eric Quennoy's life. True story.

Interbest Outdoor company threatens: advertise here or he gets naked!

Strippers sell! Even if you really don't want to see anyone naked, as your drive to work on your morning commute. This guy was plastered on a large billboard and as the days passed, he stripped off little by little. The line? "The sooner you advertise here, the better..." Right, lets get a half-naked fit young woman up there instead. Poor doofus-dad.
