Ahh what a lovely mix or cute and terrifying. The magician one is weakest.

Actually I think it's the best one, together with the bear. They are the only 2 executions in which both have a reason to take the product, but I guess that was not the initial idea...

Great campaign, lovely, stylish, emotional... what i dont get is: what did the 3D artist do? Or did they TV spots for this campaign as well?

I don't think the idea in these is nice. Too constructed for this product in my opinion. Let's see who is right concerning the Cannes predicitions. :P

It's a famous/infamous trick they pull on new inmates. Someone drops the soap in the shower and when newbie bends over to pick it up, well you get the picture.

The inmate swallowed the soap before he drops it i guess, you know what they say about prison... don't drop the soap!

Love it still... and somewhat disturbed

Always try to be unique even when forced to conform.

Good idea, but the soap thing makes no sense... Why would he eat the soap?.. So he wouldn't have a chance to drop it i guess? that kind of makes sense but it doesn't explain why the bigger guy appears to be mad at the little guy for eating the soap.. he could just rape him anyway... don't think alka seltzer can prevent THAT.
