        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.

          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....

                  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.
