Condoms ads should be funny like that...after all they target the young generations most of times....

Think outside the X_BOX

I would say think! And i didn´t say that is bad!

And i´ll keep saying that this is the type of ad that an intern and a begginer has in a portifolio, if you want it have it all!

maybe in other planet!
And if you plan to make your criteria only with awards you will die trying!
Saying again, tha ad is not bad!
But the product is to easy, can you understand now???

The Jupiter Drawing Rooom campaign (including kilt)

New York Fesitval - Finalist
London International - Finalist
Loeries - Silver

And yes, awards are how we measure our success. Anyone can do a solid ad for a product and increase sales. But not everyone can do an awarding ad that makes us go, 'I wish I'd thought of that'. I think this campaign is quite juvenile, but hey, who are we to judge (unless you were one of the judges).

Actually it won an Epica-Award. It;s nice and it's Greek keep up McCann and Anna.

So what if it is easy, they still need to advertise and this is pretty clever.

since when does winning an award automatically give an ad credibility. people that judge ads based on the awards they've won must have trouble forming their own opinions. it's a really weak argument.

my opinion, this ad here sucks.

Why is it that when people don't get the meaning of an ad, they say it sucks??? The information it conveys is crystal clear!
If a guy has a big d#*k he should use XL condoms! The gimmick to convey that message is the fact that Scottish guys wearing kilt (supposedly) dont wear underwear.and therefore should have long kilts to cover their d#*k!About the negative comments: it's a simple idea that makes you smile. It is unfortunate that this has been done b4 but to me that simply shows that great minds think alike. Do you think that if people from McCann Athens knew about the previous ad, they would still go and do exactly( or more or less) the same???As for the awards not being a proof of an ad's value and creativity: to all of you guys who have this opinion, i gather you have never submitted one of your ads to any sort of those unworthy, non credible, pointless awards right? if you have, then you are just making a fool out of yourselves..sorry!
