O'Donovan's Irish Pub: Naked Waitresses

The naked truth about our waitresses is that they only flirt with you to get a better tip.

We have a long history of collaborating with the folks at Irish Born Hospitality to create some cool work. O’Donovan’s called to tell us they had purchased the billboard space above their restaurant and that they wanted to mix things up. So that’s exactly what we did.

I'm not sure how the waitresses at this pub feel about that billboard, but I kinda like the play with the font sizes.

Are all of you 12? This format for a headline has been done a thousand times before. Funny line, but hardly a new device.

The most interesting thing about this ad is the size and location of the board. The line is just so so.

I think non advertising industry people will like this, since they probably didn't see this headline structure used before in a bus shelter ad from Singapore. It might not be worthy of big international awards, but it is solid.

It makes sense but it is no creativity, size size catching.
