Ad Creep Update: Power Lines

Ad Creep Update is a regular feature on ANIMAL documenting the spreading epidemic of advertising media placement into every nook and cranny of your daily life. How Panasonic was able to pull this off dumbfounds me. But, apparently they actually did it. Saatchi & Saatchi erected these electrically hazardous ads (click gallery) in some Indonesian city to indelibly sell the need for its nose hair trimmer safety cutting system. From the press notes: “With thousands of sensory nerves fibers in the nostrils, trimming nose hairs can be as risky as cutting live wires.” Yeah, not quite, but point taken. I would have gone with photos of real men to make the effort fully disgusting. |Images via: comunicadores|
