Sexually disgusting ads (that you should not see)
We are living in a world where people who make more noise steal the show. Advertising is like saying things in a noisy atmosphere, filled with competing and contradicting messages. In this cacophony of warring messages, brands try to say things differently. That is why creativity plays a pivotal role in advertising. When there is no creativity, obscenity comes to the front stage to play its absurd role and grab the glances. So, sex is senselessly used in ads without creativity, or without sensible creativity. Indeed, sex sells. But insensible cocktail of sex and the message, though it helps to grab some quick attention, does not do permanent good to the brands. The attention is similar to the attention given to a street-stripper.
Here is a list of morally disgusting ads that you are not supposed to see. Adpunch is not in favor of these extremely-hot ads. But as a platform designed to provide you with the good and bad in the industry, we are presenting this morally frightening advertising gimmicks. The ads are not suitable for minors to view. If you have cardiovascular diseases or previous history of psychological trauma, you should see the ads only after consulting with the concerning medical practitioner. You are not supposed to see these ads if you are a Womanizer/ man eater/psycho/serial killer/priest/police man/politician/pro.
If you are so sure, jump.
When they use AIDS to sell fashion
So, it is not so fashionable. This so called fashionable chic is announcing all the winnable models that âWeâre all potential carriers.â Well, we donât have a problem with Kenneth Cole, if they are uncovering the beauty of models bodily geographies. But, this seemingly different and harmless statement is in a way insulting to the AIDS patients and awareness campaigns. By saying such a statement, they are downplaying the gravity of the disease and the importance of the advertising efforts surrounding it.
Raped in fashion
This intentionally helpless chick is being overpowered by a gang of men in a fashionable way. This Dolce & Gabanna ad raised many eyebrows as it showed violence against woman.
The problem here is not nudity, but the glorification of violence and rape for the sake of commercial gain.
Another ‘rape-friendly’ example for disgusting advertising from Italy’s Relish brand for their S/S 09 ad campaign.
German awareness campaign against AIDS has this headless representation of wild sex. The copy reads- Itâs easy to lose your head when youâre horny. So, next time when you become horny, it is better to have a pause, and think about this ad. What will you do? Bang! Nothing more.
This will happen, if condoms are flavored
Distastefully creative commercial for flavored condoms. Lips attract the truthâ¦
Leading a dogâs lifestyle
I checked the news archives. I have not found anything related to PETA with this advertising effort for Deutsch Magazine. PETA should legally revenge the advertisers for forcing this young, brave dog to suffer something fishy.
The lifestyle magazine is claiming that it shows a new lifestyle.
When TV sponsors the childhood
This little girl in this commercial is dancing like a shameless, hot pole dancer for a few moments. The eyes, movements and body language reflect some kind of frighteningly odd sensuous invitation that is not expected from a little girl. This ad, as part of Don’t Let Your Child Be Educated by TV social campaign (Romania), tries to convey a good message. But, the âsexificationâ of a child, for whatever means, is condemnable.
Peta insults angels
PETA and this Playboy cover girl have created a big controversy by their stupid pornographic bravado.
Look at this ad. Two innocent souls are staring at you. (well, if you have only noticed one, change your negative attitude). This is Joanna Krupa, the playboy beauty who has been eliminated from dancing with the stars.
PETA features her as an angel, with a digital halo wings and a rosary in her right hand. The problem is that we wonât want any topless angels to come during our prayers.
Mixing beer and bum means ban
Tackling a large-bottomed woman may require will power and persistence from the part of a man. But does it mean that you need Dutch courage to approach a woman? This ad for âCourageâ beer shows a nervous-looking man staring helplessly at a large-bottomed woman. TAKE COURAGE MY FRIEND- The ad urges the man with an insulting tone.
Anyway, the advertising standards authority banned the ad as it implied beer could give the man confidence either to make negative comments about the woman, or to take advantage of her.
Burger kingâs symbolic blow job
We do not expect symbolic presentation of blow job from Burger King, which is supposedly a brand mainly associated with families. But, it often courts controversy and breaks the line. Look what they have done here. A mouthful of obscenity.
When stuffed animals become naughty
This poster for the movie ââRules of Attractionââ was banned in America. The poster features stuffed animals inâ¦well, compromising positions.
Tanner Krolle bags a ban
This print advertisement for promoting designer handbags which was appeared in Vogue magazine was banned by ASA. The ad shows a couple doing some hanky-panky in a bathroom while another nearly-nude lady pictures this adventure in a camera.
ASA received many complaints that the ad was sexually provocative and offensive
