Heineken Italy Activation from Kreatif360 on Vimeo.

On the night of the October 21st the Real Madrid played Champions League match against AC Milan. Heineken convinced several university professors, girlfriends, and several bosses to convince their students, boyfriends and employees to go to a concert on that night. All of them couldn't say no and had to go to the classical concert.

Hymen gel|A lubricant for women above 40




Hymen gel, it is a vaginal tightening gel for women above 40.

Well, 40 can be an intriguingly challenging age for many a women, who desperately try to maintain the bygone glory. Sex plays an important role in any married relationship, if not a pivotal one.

Extremely-hot ads...Sexually

When they use AIDS to sell fashion

So, it is not so fashionable. This so called fashionable chic is announcing all the winnable models that “We’re all potential carriers.” Well, we don’t have a problem with Kenneth Cole, if they are uncovering the beauty of models bodily geographies. But, this seemingly different and harmless statement is in a way insulting to the AIDS patients and awareness campaigns. By saying such a statement, they are downplaying the gravity of the disease and the importance of the advertising efforts surrounding it.

Raped in fashion
This intentionally helpless chick is being overpowered by a gang of men in a fashionable way. This Dolce & Gabanna ad raised many eyebrows as it showed violence against woman.
The problem here is not nudity, but the glorification of violence and rape for the sake of commercial gain.

Another example

Another ‘rape-friendly’ example for disgusting advertising from Italy’s Relish brand for their S/S 09 ad campaign.

F….ingly headless
German awareness campaign against AIDS has this headless representation of wild sex. The copy reads- It’s easy to lose your head when you’re horny. So, next time when you become horny, it is better to have a pause, and think about this ad. What will you do? Bang! Nothing more.

This will happen, if condoms are flavored

Distastefully creative commercial for flavored condoms. Lips attract the truth…

Leading a dog’s lifestyle
I checked the news archives. I have not found anything related to PETA with this advertising effort for Deutsch Magazine. PETA should legally revenge the advertisers for forcing this young, brave dog to suffer something fishy.
The lifestyle magazine is claiming that it shows a new lifestyle.

When TV sponsors the childhood

This little girl in this commercial is dancing like a shameless, hot pole dancer for a few moments. The eyes, movements and body language reflect some kind of frighteningly odd sensuous invitation that is not expected from a little girl. This ad, as part of Don’t Let Your Child Be Educated by TV social campaign (Romania), tries to convey a good message. But, the ‘sexification’ of a child, for whatever means, is condemnable.

Peta insults angels
PETA and this Playboy cover girl have created a big controversy by their stupid pornographic bravado.
Look at this ad. Two innocent souls are staring at you. (well, if you have only noticed one, change your negative attitude). This is Joanna Krupa, the playboy beauty who has been eliminated from dancing with the stars.
PETA features her as an angel, with a digital halo wings and a rosary in her right hand. The problem is that we won’t want any topless angels to come during our prayers.

Mixing beer and bum means ban
Tackling a large-bottomed woman may require will power and persistence from the part of a man. But does it mean that you need Dutch courage to approach a woman? This ad for ‘Courage’ beer shows a nervous-looking man staring helplessly at a large-bottomed woman. TAKE COURAGE MY FRIEND- The ad urges the man with an insulting tone.
Anyway, the advertising standards authority banned the ad as it implied beer could give the man confidence either to make negative comments about the woman, or to take advantage of her.

Burger king’s symbolic blow job
We do not expect symbolic presentation of blow job from Burger King, which is supposedly a brand mainly associated with families. But, it often courts controversy and breaks the line. Look what they have done here. A mouthful of obscenity.

When stuffed animals become naughty
This poster for the movie ‘’Rules of Attraction’’ was banned in America. The poster features stuffed animals in…well, compromising positions.

Tanner Krolle bags a ban
This print advertisement for promoting designer handbags which was appeared in Vogue magazine was banned by ASA. The ad shows a couple doing some hanky-panky in a bathroom while another nearly-nude lady pictures this adventure in a camera.

Tropicana | Brighter mornings

Tropicana translated its 'brighter mornings' brand promise so literally with this campaign.

Juice brand Tropicana wanted to highlight the fact that it played an important role in the morning ritual of millions of Canadians, to coincide with the launch of its newest juice, Tropicana Essentials, with added calcium and vitamin D.
The brand wanted to elevate its role beyond simply being a brand of orange juice and increase loyalty amongst its consumers and become Canada's National Provider of Brighter Mornings.
In order to do this, Tropicana spent a month in Inuvik, one of the country's northernmost towns, during the coldest and darkest days of the winter. The 3,500 residents of the Arctic town in the Northwest Territories live without a sunrise for several weeks every winter. Tropicana literally brought a brighter morning to Inuvik with a giant artificial sun that emitted 100,000 lumens of light. A team of Canadian filmmakers captured the raising of the 'sun' in Inuvik for a series of documentary-style commercials.
The lights were affixed to a 36-foot wide helium balloon which then rose and illuminated the town. The Tropicana Brand's 'sunrise' coincided with Inuvik's annual Sunrise Festival, which celebrates the return of sunlight after weeks of relative darkness.
The brand also provided 1,200 free cartons of Tropicana Pure Premium Orange Juice - one for every household in the community.  The Tropicana team also worked with local leaders to identify community-based breakfast and nutrition programs in need of financial support. Contributions were then made to Sir Alexander Mackenzie School, Tot Spot Daycare and the Inuvik Food Bank.
In addition to TV advertising, the campaign features blogged commentary and behind-the-scenes imagery from Inuvik to provide a catalyst for conversation on a new Tropicana Brighter Mornings Facebook page.
