This website is becoming a bit difficult to browse at work. Ivan you should start rating your ads PG, R, 18+ etc... just so we know what to expect once we open an ad.

C'mon, you can't see anything explicit here. I never post stuff explicit for this very reason. Which country are you from? Is it very conservative?

i agree with him ivan...the site is starting slightly to have some kinda explicit ads "in the past 2 days till now" maybe by coinsident but its noticeable...

I flipped through the last 5 days and I can't see anything explicit. Can you help me pinpoint which one you mean besides this campaign above? Thank you!

ivan first of all you have to know that you are my idle, and this is only from my jealousy on "my" favourite website ever,
truelly you are the biggest celebrity in the Ads feild nowadays..you are the first to make such a perfect community to designers from all over the world not to mention the "race" between the most known agencies ever you create in this site..

my point about these links is that you really cant view it in the office because of the negative thinking you will create in someone passing your desk thats all, with all do respect to all of it -personally i like them all- ;)
peace n i apologize in advance if i am wrong...
your student :)

Cool visuals and layout...But the concept is a bit weak in terms of selling the product. It looks like an HIV/Aids campaign at first glance. Like a campaign about the stigmatization of HIV positive people. Just a bit too wishy washy.

whats wrong with using a little sex and nudity to advertise products? after all, sex sells best. And not just that, its advertising for gods sake! where everything is allowed and everything should be. Thats what we call creative interpretation no?

i think the approach is not that bad but i don't really see the connection between the headline and the person. she's a burlesque-ish looking woman, possibly a hooker. what has she done that would make me wanna talk about her? can't think of anything.

why not go with a person or an incident that really was heavily talked about. would've been much stronger.

seems like they just went with the first thing that came to mind. should've invested another 30min of thinking.
