Saatchi & Saatchi Cape Town has enlisted Super Heroes to call attention to the healthy effects of eating canned Saldanha Pilchards which are "full of iron, vitamins and omega 3, all the good stuff that makes you strong, fast and smart."
The campaign portrays fisherman as super heros. In the campaign, we see Einstein representing brain power, Superman representing energy and Popeye representing strength.
We're sticking with lobster, salmon and swordfish,
Occasionally write things here on Adrants that could loosely be interpreted as intelligent. Five years ago, we think, was one of those occasions. We were making comment on a Sisley advertising campaign which, as many fashion campaigns do, objectified women.
Flash forward to 2010 and the new Fall/Winter Sisley campaign. We're not sure this one objectifies women but it sure makes them look stupid. Yea, there's the ubiquitous cleavage shot but there's also a woman falling out of a dryer and a woman on the floor having fun with a bunch of cucumbers.
It's kind of sexist and stupid all at the same time. But fashion advertising gets a pass on this. why? Because do we really want to look at fashion as if it were a Sears catalog? No. We want some action and excitement. Even if it it idiotic and pretentiously stupid.
Phallic? Definitely. Hot? Indeed. Strange. For sure. This new campaign from for Diesel's Only the Brave men's fragrance in Mexico goes all phallic on us with a bevy of Mad Mamacitas.
More of the Mad Mamacita hotness can be seen here, here and over at the campaign website.
There's really nothing more motivational than imagery of a man gripping his penis adorned with a gaggle of scantily-clad hotties seducing you with come-hither looks to make you run right out to your local retailer and buy this stuff.
If you're 14.
If you've ever watched Gossip Girl - come on, admit it, you know you have - you'd have witnessed the transformation of Jenny Humphrey (Little J) from innocent cutie to head bitch in charge of Constance Billard. In the real world, Jenny is Taylor Momsen and she's 16 so there's only so much drooling you're allowed to do before you fall into a certain category of sleaze ball.
That said, she looks good fronting Macy's new line of eighties-themed clothing, Material Girl, from the material girl herself, Madonna, and her daughter Lourdes. The line will hit stores August 3.
Previously, Momsen, well known for her provocative style of dress and her "badass" attitude has been the face of British retailer New Look. Here's a promotional video for the Material Girl line after the jump:
The Hills alum, Audrina Patridge, following her stint pimping the Carl's Jr. Teriyaki burger while spilling out of a gold bikini, is now the new face of Bongo Jeans. Following Vanessa Minnello, Nicole Richie, the Laguna Beach cast, Kim Kardasian, Rachel Bilson and Kristin Cavallari, Patrige will lend her bootyliciousness the the brand's Fall print campaign.
Of the campaign, which was shot by Tony Duran, Patrige said, "Generations of women, including my mom and sisters, have loved this iconic brand. And it's exciting to be a part of something that is so classically cool, American."
Dark, distant look? Check. Emotionless look? Check. Hipsteresque pose? Check. Small breasts? Check. Shot in black and white? Check. Models whose names are hard to pronounce? Check. Models in need of a Big Mac? Check.
Yea, it's a high fashion ad campaign. It's for Versace, was photographed by Mario Testino and features models Anna Selezneva, Iselin Steiro and Valerija Kelava.
See it all here.
Joining Kellan Lutz and Eva Mendes, Avatar actress Zoe Saldana will model Calvin Klein Envy line of underwear in a new ad campaign. The campaign will include print, outdoor and digital.
Of the line which aims to create "a more revealing silhouette," Saldana said, "Calvin Klein has always put forth such beautifully executed campaigns. It's very exciting for me to be associated with such an iconic, globally recognized brand like Calvin Klein Underwear."
When you write about advertising every day, suffering de ja vu every once in a while comes with the job. Today, Julia Stiles is the cause of our ailment. She's in a new Stoli commercial in which she talks to herself and debates the merits of going commercial versus staying indi.
Though the ad is new, we could swear we've seen it before. Maybe it's because we couldn't stand watching Hugh Hefner talk to himself and we conjured Julia instead.Anyway, anytime we can see Julia Stiles is a good time so we're not going to complain.
