@adaddicted

What was the advantage of that "sheepish" sex ad that Ivan recently posted? It was an ad for some sex shop in Brazil, showing a bunch of sheep, allegedly staring at you as you were having "colorful" sex or something.
Indeed it was funnier, but there was no link or advantage there either.

Dude, are you still thinking of Dolly?!
As I stated earlier, A2 Sexshop made their point without showing a sex toy!
But here the visual doesn't communicate what they meant to say. For Colgate... I would repeatedly say this ad is inappropriate!!!
Still respect the Art.

There is no coherent link between the product, the benefit and communication. It's a fun campaign that only relies on art direction.

there is no benefit and besides the octopus don't have teeth to begin with and how would he get toothpaste at the bottom of the ocean and why is the damn octopus turned around so can't see him brushing his teeth? Did someone let some kids in and create these ads at Y&R?
