Snickers ad drives Alternet writer nuts!

Over at Alternet, Matt Tabbi hates the latest batch of Snickers ads. A lot. Cuckoo for Cocoa Ads. When Mars refuses to endorse Fair Trade chocolate, hate the ads! The commercials must have damaged the "Research" part of this journalists brain as he gets many facts wrong.

Elite Designers against Ikea campaign

Elite Designers against Ikea

The big blue place is odious, its affordable design is sickeningly shallow and we loathe it even more than we loathe football. Please join us in our unqualified hatred.

Call van der Puups number and you'll be greeted with a "funny accent" message +44 (0) 20 7729 4636 - a little reminiscent of Ugoff - the great pouch designer. This campaign is supported by commercials, posters and press where van den Puup headlines with the choice quote: "Ikea, you disgust me to my kidneys".

NYC hanging up on public-telephone advertising.

The New York Post says that New York city has called for and end to public-telephone advertising. Fed up residents have complained about living in a cacophony of advertising messages and asked the city to curb the commercial clutter problem. Why install thousands of phone booths that are never used, since they rarely work, and most people have a cell phone anyway? Because the ad space makes money.

One city official said the new restrictions were needed because phones were being installed just for advertising, not because there was a need for people to make phone calls.

"It's become entirely an advertising market. There was no telecommunications rationale," the official said.

Update; Never heard of the Benrik folks before? Get aquainted by reading their Fonk for thoughts over at blogfonk.

Poke London and Cow PR had a hand in creating this toy as well.

Christina Aguilera's naughty nurse ad canned

Aguilera's naughty nurse ad shelved says the Ireland online.

Sandy Summers, executive director of the Center For Nursing Advocacy said: "This ad simultaneously exploits the 'naughty nurse' and the battleaxe/Nurse Ratched stereotypes, setting the nurse up both as an available sex object and a mock-malevolent authority figure, rather than a competent professional."

While technically not a ban a withdrawn ad fits in this topic. Hat tip to Claymore. Wanna see the ad? Read more.
