Achooooooooooo.......!




had a cold since yesterday
not that the weather here is colder
but i guess becos i switched on the fan for the entire night
i've used about ten packets of tissue.....


this is an ad i saw in the underground station
it was intentionally spread onto two panels so that the mask 'fly' forward to generate the motion
to emphasize how hard this man SNEEEZZZZZZE.......

i love creative ads, do u have any funny or creative ads like this in your country?

Very funny, definitely worth the photo, I love it Zannie ! The fact that they used two ad spaces to achieve it is very creative. Do people still often wear masks ?(I know everyone had them in the bad days when fear of the bird flu was everywhere)...

hope you did take some panadol strong cold and flu relief and felt better.

nathalie,

Yes it is a very well communicated ad even including the thought of achieving with two panels. It is 'to the point' and effective...

These days only very rare cases we'll get to see people wearing masks in public. However during the SARS period, masks were even out of stock. Lots of people buy to stock them up (under the 'kiasu' mentality)

kaa,

wow, do let me know pls, i would really like to see how the ads are like in your country. And I always wonder how these creative minds come out with it!

macky,

Thanks for your kind regards, you take good care too... i hope it is not too cold now in japan for you


Philip (keropok man),
not really, panadol strong is only a temporary relief and i dun take it cos it will be difficult to flush out of our bodies (ie the side effects). I drank more water and rest more to get better :)Thanks anyway!

Zannie, I liked this one a lot. It made me feel like I was back in a BART station in the San Francisco Bay Area on my way to work. We don't have electric trains, light rail, or underground here in Seattle. . .Great ad.
