Imagine a world without boundaries, without politics, without fighting over sharing of resource, without agendas and vested interest.
Huffingtonpost Post wonders if this is the beginning of a new international diplomacy.
On a lighter side, you wish if the world has more beautiful and se-xy ladies like German chancellor. Then you wonder, at the top, be it in corporate or politics, if the world is too much tilted around men and not women. May be a next ad series from Benetton.
If you wonder, what went beside strategizing the creative, this is what Alessandro Benetton, executive deputy chairman, who presented the ads in Paris, had to say, “they were meant to promote the idea of -unhate. The images are very strong, but we have to send a strong message. We are not wanting to be disrespectful of the leaders … we consider them “conception figures” making a statement of brotherhood with a kiss.”
Thanks to Kim Kardashian, In XLV Super Bowl 2011, it seems Go Daddy has a bigger competition in terms of scoring the highest sexyness point as Skechers is fast approaching to gain the top spot. According to some media monitoring company reports, the controversial Kim Kardashian is gaining attention of the NFL viewing public and how.
The lady may not have a steady eye candy boyfriend as of now but that does not mean she isn’t going to get attention at all from all of us. The long-lashed super hot entrepreneur babe has been roped in as spokesperson (spokesmodel…she will do a good job at the press conference, we fans are sure) for Skechers ShapeUps. So she is starring in a television commercial for the year’s biggest advertising extravaganza called Super Bowl on February 6. On her blog, Kim excitedly explained, “I don’t want to give too much away, but the storyline of the ad is so fun and I think you guys are going to love the commercial. I have to break someone’s heart in the end… but you’ll have to wait to see why!”
TV ad, photos, behind the scene videos after the jump
There are some Jeans ads and commercials made that raise eyebrows not only of a society at large but also of advertising councils. They create controversies and mind you controversies are damn good for publicity. Here, I have listed down top and best 10 Jeans ads and commercials (no McKinsey research finding, these are my personal favorites).
Wrangler Jeans – We are animals
This Wrangler Jeans advertisement is plane art or imitating life, is difficult to answer. The Ad ageny from Paris FFL Paris, France and its Executive Creative Directors Fred & Farid have created this shocking jean ad.
Schultz Jeans advertisement
OK, its not clear if this Schultz Jeans advert is meant for boys or girls, or may be it’s a unise*ual product meant for both the genders. Dear ladies, It shows you the right way to keep your clothes on after the whole exercise is over and leave the rest nkead and wanting for more.
Calvin Klein Jeans Banned Uncensored commercial
Calvin Klein Jeans commercial has been banned from American television. The ad in question has featured topless male and female models making out on a couch. Well, going with the flow participants are not wearing anything other than a pair Calvin Klein Jeans!
Steve Meisel, the famous photographer has shot the ad which deemed to be to vulgar for cable watching people of America.
Look at her legs, seems exported fresh from an anorexic country
Dolce & Gabbana Rpae Ad
This Dolce & Gabbana ad is a real real shocker. It simply suggests a gang rpae is about to take place. The commercial shows a woman is pinned to the ground by the wrists by a bare-chested man while other men in the background are looking on.
Advertising Self-Discipline Institute (IAP) from Italy has banned the advertisement. It said, the ad “offended the dignity of the woman, in the sense that the feminine figure is shown in a degrading manner. The woman has an alienated expression, with an absent look”.
Levi’s Bare Rear advertisement
There is nothing to much to hide. This Levi’s all bare ess ad, I am not sure how showcases the benefit of the product, but it worked, considered as one of the most popular Jeans ads of all time. By the way, the ad was shot in 1970s, not much fashion statement here (it’s as eternal as Eve), so still does not look outdated.
Turkish Jeans ad
This one is really weird. No, there is no nuidty involved in here, but quite obvious what’s taking place in there. Imagine, the ad is from Turkey, a so called conservative country.
Lee Jeans controversial Lolita style ad
The shocking part in this Lee Jeans ad is that, baby doll get up girl who is shot in the ad shoot in various nymphet scenarios barely looks legal age wise. Australia’s Advertising Standards Board is scrutinizing this fruit if art after several people complained “the clothes can hardly be seen and this type of ad demeans women.”
Calvin Klein controversial ad featuring Eva Mendes
Calvin Klein chose Eva Mendes as its brand ambassador when she was sentenced rehab. The folks out there at CK thought she truly is personification of se*iness and confrontational.
Crocker uncensored commercial
Honestly I don’t much like this TVC of Crocker, probably an Israeli brand (not much in the knowing, sorry). Well, there is not much to dislike either, it’s a pretty simple honest ‘Why should boys have all the fun’ kinda ad.
Everyone’s beloved Old Spice guy Mustafa is replaced. Call this nasty, body wash f****ery, the delectable Old Spice guy, Isaiah Mustafa who already kind of becoming an advertising fairy tale, has been replaced by Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis. Get some raw energy, reality show feeling by watching the new guy, he is not an actor, he is a sportsman. Hope you like him.
I wonder why Isaiah Mustafa was changed by Old Spice management, was he getting bigger than the brand? Or a new dynamic dimension was need of the hour may be.
