Responsible Ads

Responsible: 

1)CLIENT: Tulipan Condoms AGENCY: Y&R
This is undeniably funny. Children at too young of an age won't catch on through any blatant symbolism. The product is for adults and the ad is for adults not to mention its hilarious.

2)CLIENT: DiscoverLaw.Org AGENCY: GMMB, Washington DC

I always wonder with so much funding and so many experts on policy, how man-made disasters still are able to happen. So does this agency. One of the best parts of advertising is that it can have such a huge impact on the way others think. This ad puts that to use.

3)CLIENT: League Against Cancer AGENCY: Y&R

So many things are constantly talked about to the point where no one hears them anymore. I feel that skin cancer prevention is also becoming this way. This ad puts it boldly, using symbolism that is easily understood.

Irresponsible:

1) CLIENT: Absolut AGENCY: TBWA
Ogilvy would be ashamed. This is the exact type of woman you see in the negative parts of their "self esteem fund" campaign.

2)CLIENT: Durex AGENCY: Grey

The symbolism isn't subtle. The grope-like hands aren't subtle. This whole ad isn't subtle and isn't good. What would a child ask if they saw it?

3)CLIENT: Viagra AGENCY: Taxi

Again. Where is the subtlety. If you're an adult or most likely if you're a young adult, you can get this. Too suggestive. Anyone could think of something like this.
