Durex Condoms Block One Thing, Give Too Much of Another


Some have always said eating too much chocolate will rot your teeth. Apparently, chocolate flavored Durex condoms will as well. This milkman guy certainly gets around. And not just with human females. See the spot here.

This a farily old commercial but seeing it makes me LOL. HUMO, the Belgian magazine regularly spreads condoms with the weekly publication.
Here is another ad: http://www.soulcreation.com/blog/index.php?itemid=89

I don't get it...
If I have to try this hardx3 then it is bullshit. Not effective.

Claudio, thanks for the link to that Let the Beast Go spot. That was damn funny too.

And Rex, if you have to try this hard I suggest you always wear a condom. We can't afford letting your genes into the pool.

Pat, how about you and I "mix" genes? we'll make blue eyed Aryans. That ad was not effective!!

Rex, what the hell are you talking about? How did Aryans get into this? Please explain.

Whether the ad is effective depends on where it was intended to run. If HUMO spend big Euros to air it on TV then maybe you're right. But if it was intended more as an online ad, maybe as part of a promotion that hopefully would go viral, then it's damned effective.

Maybe a bit of context would help. Chocolate is almost as big as beer in Belgium, so I bet this isn't as big a reach there.

I can't wait to hear where you got this Aryan idea.

This is AdRants, you gimp. Who cares if it's effective as long as it makes us laugh?

Finally, someone gets what we're all about here. Thanks, Rob. If you want serious (boring) ad news, there's always Ad Age.

Belgium = Beer = Chocalate!!
The thing Humo is doing is a huge marketing stunt and it works. Some of the ads were also aired on TV.

Btw, Humo is big in Belgium. Everyone knows it.

Good Rex!
