Moving away from their previous images of rebellious and adventurous youth, this Ray Ban ad puts a wonderful new spin on their slogan, “Never Hide.”

According to this article in HuffPost, Paris-based agency Marcel reportedly produced the ads as a salute to “people from various eras who have flouted conventions in plain sight.”

Ha, this is the greatest ad! Yes, it’s going off of simple sex appeal, but the commercial is so self-aware and unabashed about this pandering to sex appeal that it is hilarious. I am looking up that app right now.

It’s funny that the below poster (a guy) was reminded of the Sexy CPR commercials when he saw this; I was immediately thinking of Isaiah Mustafa talking ever-so-wonderfully to us ladies via his Old Spice commercial.


You’re welcome, ladies.

I keep seeing Rethink pop-up everywhere. They’ve been doing some great creative over the past year.

This isn’t brilliant, but it’s kinda funny and it’s probably going to be effective. It reminds of a Cannes-winning campaign that I’ll post immediately after this (you’re welcome, boys).

Hmmm… Although I admit I laughed when I first saw this, I’m not quite sure if I like it. The people who actually use the personal ad section might feel slighted. Ah well, funny for the rest of the readers :)

This print advertisement was placed in a Dutch newspaper in the personal Ad section. No need to tell you that Garlic Sauce gives you a smelly breath. Tagline that goes along: “Extra strong garlic sauce”.

“Your life is your life. Know it while you have it.”

Stunning ad. They unfortunately had to pull it off the air due to the uncanny resemblance to the current London riots (see Pocket-Lint article here). Nonetheless, I’m sure something this gorgeous should and will go viral, anyway!
