the choo-choo is stuck in the poo-poo.

(click image for closer look)
FUCK. I'd love to get a chance to work on a fucking lubricant account. Is there any easier assignment? Use some sort of hole visual, and riff off that. Google Image search "hole" and you've got 10 campaign ideas. That said, this ad for Durex Play lubricant is not bad. The playful model train set sets the right tone for the product. previously in Durex: the most confusing condom ad ever. previously in condom advertising: proud as a (pea)cock; it's raining (se)men; doing Sudoku doggiestyle; and tuttfrutti condom bubbles. (image via) update: apparently this is an in-store POP display poster, so it had to be a kid-friendly idea.

I don't get this ad. Does it represent:

1. Constipation (some got out, one is stuck in the chute?)
2. A line-up of cock during a gang bang?
3. A failing erection due to....?
4. Blue balls (or purple dick)?

Fracture of the corpora cavernosa (safe for work).

And copyranter, how is this different from working on a condom ad? Or is your advice regarding them just for students and job seekers?

jayhawker: no, also no lubricant ads in your portfolio, unless they're produced.

It was kinda hard to come up with but

1) Looks like they couldn’t fit a url in the ad either.

2) All passengers must not get off before entering the tunnel.

Condom ads can be similarly funny (but agree w/ CR that they shouldn't be in your book unless produced).

Check out Trojan's online work, starring "Testiclees" and "Scrotus" --

Ouch.

This reminds me of when things get a bit out of control, and snap! it bends painfully in half. Mood over.

Good incentive to buy this product!

Is that a model of the Flying Scotsman?
No wait it would be green then.

(They should've had more shrubbery around the tunnel.)

Yes they should have. Something nice and not too expensive.

Well, shit. That's what happens when you try to take three dicks in the ass at once.
