Latest Slim Fast Ads Target Brides-to-Be

The latest batch of print ads from weight-loss drink company Slim Fast are specifically targeting Brides-to-Be.  While I can easily see how some people will take offense to the ads, I think that the underlying concept and message is a great idea and very original.  Check out one of the ads below (the other ads in the campaign can be viewed at BridePop, who I credit for the initial post).

Heineken – Draft Keg Commercial

While this commercial may have weirded out more people than convinced people to buy Heineken, it still remains one of my all-time favorite commercials. Check it out below:

I love the the computerized music and robotic, metallic pin-ups, but what I think really makes this commercial is the style and editing of the shots.  In my opinion, Berlin Cameron United (the agency that created the ad) did an excellent job.

Not everyone thinks so though… Ad Age criticizes the commercial, stating the the keg replaces the woman’s reproductive organs and creates the misogynistic ‘perfect woman.’  And although many people responded to their article, criticizing their analysis as hyper-reactive, these same people said that they thought the commercial was just plain stupid.
