OK, here's an ad I like.

(click)
I'm busy working on actual work today, so here's an ad from 2008 for Tipp-Ex correction fluid (the client is actually cna stores). How bout that: a product hero ad where the product is, in fact, the hero. The asshole client is happy, and the whiny creatives are happy. That's rare. Ad agency: Jupiter Drawing Room.
Related: in 2010, Tipp-Ex did one of the smartest YouTube ads I've seen.

Really stupid to put a cross in the ad.
I guess the company doesn't want Jews & other non-believers to buy the product.

It's via South Africa——there are no Jews there, right?

Actually there are a lot of Jews in South Africa.
Many were at the forefront of the anti-apartheid movement.
