Male Model Promotes Push-Up Bra
AMSTERDAM – The Dutch warehouse chain Hema is banking on an interesting marketing campaign to explode the sales of its newest garment, a push-up bra.
Using the slogan that “not just women will gain two cup sizes with the new bra but even men will have cleavage”, the company hired international male model Andrej Pejic to promote its new garment.
Pejic is world renowned for his ability to model male and female clothing with ease. Born an Androgyne (ambi-gender), Andrej’s physique and facial features allow him to navigate both male and female modeling venues with comfort and style.
I know this is an oldie, but there something about this ad. I think the message may have been lost due to the shock value, but there’s much appreciation in the execution.
Another brilliant ad in this very creative campaign. So the creative team that came up with this ad decided that its best to encourage people to utilize Cult Shaker, a mixed vodka and soda drink, to obtain sex. However, the genius didn’t stop there, then they thought they would add a type of halo around the bottle of beer just to make sure viewers of this ad would see how innocent drinking really is. WOW…I wonder if they won any awards for this campaign.
This ad shouldn’t be banned for the nudity, but it should be banned for lack of creativity. Let see, they sat around for 5 minutes and came up with, “Let’s get a shot of a nude hot body, with a bottle of Cult Shaker (a mixed vodka and soda drink) and then add some strong copy that says, “Shake It Up Baby.” Brilliant, just brilliant work.
At first, the images are shocking. These images aren’t the latest political scandal. They’re a new ad campaign from Italian clothing company United Colors of Benetton called “Unhate.”
The images are digitally manipulated but they send a pointed message. The newly unveiled UNHATE Foundation seeks to promote a culture of tolerance and combat hatred around the world, the company said in a news release.The campaign was launched today in Paris.“Unhate is a message that invites us to consider that hate and love are not as far away from each other as we think,” the campaign’s website said. “Actually, the two opposing sentiments are often in a delicate and unstable balance. Our campaign promotes a shift in the balance: don’t hate, Unhate.”The website features photos of people holding large banners of the images “on the walls of locations symbolic of the desperately-needed peace process: Tel Aviv, New York, Rome, Milan and Paris,” the news release says.The ads have already become a source of controversy.After the images went up, the Vatican quickly denounced an image of Pope Benedict XVI kissing Egyptian Imam Ahmed el Tayyeb on the lips.Vatican spokesman the Rev. Federico Lombardi called the digitally altered image an “unacceptable” and offensive manipulation of the pope’s likeness, according to the Associated Press.Benetton removed the image shortly thereafter and it is no longer on the website.The company is known for its striking, and often controversial, ads. Past ads have shown a priest kissing a nun, a white baby breast-feeding from a black woman and three human hearts with the words “white,” “black” and “yellow” printed over them.
