Don't waste your sperm

Agency: 
Published/Aired: 
December 2010
Description: 

Jamshop has created a cheeky DM piece to complement their existing national print and online campaign in an effort to recruit sperm donors for Repromed, Australia's leading infertility clinic. Unsuspecting potential candidates received the popular men's magazine FHM, only to discover that some pages appeared stuck together. Blokes were lured into pulling the sticky pages apart, revealing a full page pic of an attractive lingerie model and a message. An interactive website linking back to Repromed challenged the men to see if they had the "goods" to become an eligible sperm donor.

It's funny when something that seems so obvious is presented - everyone claims to have seen it. This is a clever and original idea.

@ thedesignaddict Your link shows girls in a magazine that someone has come all over. How on earth is that saying "Don't waste your sperm"??
Perhaps you're right. Maybe we should NEVER show an ad with a 'tree' in it because someone in Bulgaria once did an ad with a 'tree' in it. If you're going to make claims like 'done to death' - do some research first.

Whatever. The message may be different, but the gimmicky delivery is a shameless rip-off. It gets a ZERO out of 10 for originality.

I would not be 'lured into pulling the sticky pages apart'.
At the first glimpse of bare flesh suggesting that this was indeed spematozoa, as suspected,
the magazine would be burned and hands disinfected.

Bad idea, bad realisation.
