Funny, and the series works as a head-turner, even though it's obvious as hell.

But this has 'scam' smeared right up to the elbow from where I'm watching: French audiences are notorious for their dislike of English ads, so I can't see the CTA working. And the paperstock looks like it's straight from the office printer. And no way a petshop/photoshop/bowling alley's going to allow these circles running rampant on their premises.

Scam.

Sorry, my bad, these are actually press ads.

@ Ivan : Thanks !
@CuriousPencil : you can check online by downloading the last issue of "sensitif", a free gay magazine... The 3 press ad are inside :-)

Thanks peggy, I take back my scam accusation; you didn't include a link to the magazine - is it English language? Just wondering because of the point about French audiences and English ads. Also, is there a follow-up in the magazine with a product shot? Just so the audience can see what it looks like when they're in the pharmacy or whatever.

Thanks for the extra info.

These are print ads, not ambient stunts, so I didn't get the "scam" comment. That said, are these objects intended to resemble phalluses?

@peggylize

Thanks for the info.. So they are targeting gay men.
