      oh my! I have to admit, I was nervous to click on that link. Not sure I buy the one with the elephant.

        I love the first one! I'm curious as to whether it was a fortuitous stock photo or had to be staged or photomanipulated.

        They reminded me of the Philips Bodygroom razor advert "Now you can shave wherever you want". Seems there is a trend for finding clever ways to bring x-rated concept advertising into the mainstream.

        at best my spelling *and grammar* is crap and at worst it are be carp

          Eww I didn't get the first one at all. Then I read your post Frankster so I revisited - racking my brain for something to get. Now I see it....ewwww....

                Hahaha that first one didn't sink in until I closed the window, that's pretty funny and gross at the same time

                  These ads are funny stuff.

                    The first one is amazing for it's ability to turn a 'conventional' and totally 'neutral' tranquil shot into something, well-- definitely NOT neutral with the mere trigger of a small two word product description.

                    Course, if it was my ad, I would have looked for a wharf with bollards at least half as wide. I think to ask the reader to make the conclusion they are asking them to make with the diameter of the ones in the shot is really, (ahem) stretching the whole believability too much.

                      Yea, that first one threw me off too for a good minute. Good ads.

                      I'm half asleep and didn't skim nearly as well as I should've, was there any mention of the ad firm behind it? ...heheh, behind.

                          I would agree with your logic if it weren't for the entire name of the company being placed immediately adjacent to the truck. In those instances where you don't spell out the entire name, the P1L is...

                          I agree that having a baby in an ad for alcohol isn't a good idea. While it may be funny to a small demographic (most of whom probably aren't drinking age yet), most people are going to find this distasteful....

                          Also, the "under" a bottle line was meant to illustrated how you will neglect to turn the bottle down when you lift it up to drink. Technically when you lift a bottle to drink, you're...

                          To rockinthisworld,

                          I can half way agree, maybe I need to look at it from a different view point for a while, that the line signifying the road is a bit much and or un-called for. Several...

                          I'll leave the truck talk to people who know things about trucks, but here are my thoughts.
                          • The line that's supposed to indicate the ground doesn't add anything to the illustration.
                          • The line framing
                          ...
