American Models Appear in Latvian Escort Service Ads

It's always amusing to see well known actors and models in strange commercials like the ones in Japan which you can view here on Japander. Of course, the stars do that knowingly and hope we in America will never see them.

In Latvia, apparently it is commonplace to simply use a photo of an good looking American model in ads with or without permission. That seems to be what's happening in 'Riga, This Week', a tourist guide for the Latvian capital city. Eden Escorts is running an ad featuring an old picture of Brooke Shields and promoting their "erotic massage" service. Page Six also found ads for other call girl services featuring Carmen Electra, Megan Ewing, and Daniela Pestova.

More New Ad Campaigns for the Week

I like Amy Corr's weekly round up of new ad campaigns because she doesn't focus exclusively on television like Ad Age usually does. She, and Mediapost, seem to realize there's a world outside of television and that's a good thing because the thirty second spot is in danger of extinction.

This week, Amy reviews campaigns from Playboy, Ecko Unlimited. The Humane Society, AAA, Kellogs, Trix, The Discovery Channel, Hummer, and a Volkswagen and Apple co-op.

A Very Cool New Car

I visited Adville today and saw a link to this television commercial for Smart car. The car is cool. The commercial is cool. It's not cool that you can't buy this car in America.

Nude Models Promote Cell Phones in Russian Penthouse

Megafon, the number three cell phone provider in Russia is using nude models with cell phones hanging around their necks in an ad campaign appearing in Penthouse.

Interesting how the cell phone hangs just to the right level so you can innocently say, "Hey, I'm only staring at the phone!"
