Amour Ads – Acting Isn’t Their Strong Suit

While I’m not using this blog to promote adult-entertainment, I will promote an ad for adult-entertainment.  Canadian adult-entertainment network Amour has put together the following spots (several are strung together in the video) to promote their services.  They promote the network’s “strengths” by highlighting their weaknesses- a tactic that would likely not work in any other industry.  Personally, I think they’re hilarious and well done and they have definitely created quite a buzz for the company.  Check out the ads here:

For more information on the ads, and to see a few print ones that accompany the campaign, check out this post on AdFreak.

Advertising with Handles

When I say handles, I’m not talking about the delicious ice cream, but rather actual handles that you might grab or hold on to for various reasons.  Again I have to thank Toxel.com for the awesome collection.
