Lingerie is not just bras.. and these images mean just "breasts". Tagline is good! It also nicely ties in with the visuals. Still, I am not a fan of this campaign. The whole object-stands-for-something concept has been way overused. It's funny I was looking today at this Durex campaign, out of Italy, that did something similar, but there we had wieners, balls, bone(r)s, etc.

i think if the two onions in the same line aligned as the breasts it would've be better to me :)

In the short rationale it is stated that the names of these objects (onions, melons, steering wheels, bombs, rack, etc) are synonyms for breasts in Swedish. So the idea isn't strange at all. It's just a way of communicating a lingerie brand in a tongue-in-cheek way, without showing any products.

Sorry, but this campaign is not selling me the product. SELL is the FIRST mission of advertising. Am i Wrong?
