Get your Gonorrhea, this year’s Herpes.

People are bombarded with messages about the risk of Sexually transmitted diseases. So much, that it seems they have stopped listening. To cut through the clutter of STD awareness, Trojan took a different approach. Instead of your typical ‘don’t do this or you’ll get this’ approach. Using some reverse psychology,Trojan set up a booth offering great deals on this year’s hottest STDs.

Vampire trend finally makes its way to hygiene

I am a little torn about this ad. Are we to assume that this speaks to the target audience? Because vampires are cool, that they will find it appealing? Aren’t all tampons absorbent? Are there inferior tampons that don’t work at all on the market?

What i am trying to say is that i feel that for this product category, absorbent isn’t a good product benefit when trying to separate yourself from your competitors. How does this make you different from the next? And i think it silly to assume that because Twilight is a big hit with women, that putting a vampire twist on it will work.

then again, this product category is so dead, all the ads seem to be the same. So maybe this is how you stick out from the rest. I mean if they did the norm, we wouldn’t even be talking about this ad. Maybe there is some genius behind it.

The sound byte anti-drug bracelet

‘A sound byte anti-drug bracelet made from a parent’s. Parents can record a short message to their child on the teen anti-drug non-profit’s site. The sound file is then visualized as a sound wave, which is then translated into a 3D bracelet for the child. The agency drew from research that found kids whose parents talk to them about drugs are up to 50% less likely to use.’
