    Talking Most ridiculous frag Ad EVER

    This must be the most ridiculous fragrance ad that I have ever seen. I mean to a certain extend most frag ads and frag bottle are subliminal recreations of either a man penis or a womans vagina but this ad is going where no other ad has gone before. They didn't even try to be low key and the name of the frag is the cherry on the cake. It is the most insane frag name EVER. its just plain disgusting. I really wonder what this crap smells like.

    Be careful... It might actually smell awesome...

    But can you imagine picking up the bottle? Everyone would call you a wanker!

    Either that, or ask you why you have a glass dildo.

    this stuff is actually pretty hotly saught after around here. I am one of many who would love to catch a whiff of Fullchocke.

    Instead of the ad copy saying "Clinique Happy", it should say "Advil: The Every Pain Reliever".

    I think the picture in the ad perfectly reflexes the high voltage between the tension a person would feel in a sad
    CLINIQUE
    and the tranquility and
    HAPPINESS
    this scent could offer.

    Perfect.

    "Take no notice 'cos I'm just the same
    There's a thousand other faces with the very same name
    And we look like each other, and we all live together.
    We talk about the same things
    And we never try and change things.
    (Chorus)
    We're the happy, happy people

    You can make some big decisions.

    But we're the ones who are in control.

    I tell you this for nothing. That packaging makes for a huge psychological incentive to buy the largest bottle they have.

    They should have just gone full tilt and made it spray from the tip.

    Fantastic! "Bruno Banani"!

    I think the FullChoke thing is almost humorous... it actually made me smile. It's just on the edge of the line of being vulgar. But this is a french designer. Europe is a lot different from the US when it comes to ads like this. The Fullchoke ad really is nothing special compared to other ads that have been used here in Europe. I can give examples if you want to but I'm not sure it would be sensible to post them in this forum as I respect that some people might not want to see them.

    I just had a trip to New York and I must say there's a big difference when it comes to ads like this. I'm not sure that ad was intended for the US.

    When Azzaro launched its campaign for Black Onyx there was a rather dated tag line that was featured on the sample card with the fragrance:

    "What is a man with a woman?"

    Well, Augesten Burroughs would have immediately shouted, 'Gay!'

    Since I share his proclivity, I second that!

    any bijan ad with that ridiculous man cavorting about showing off his capped teeth

    any of his poses could be described as you have already the sharon stone clone above needing to pee and stepping on a tack simultaneously

    but here he is in a velvet mood, stuffed into a too small jacket and rather subdued:

    Although Smalto Full Choke looks and sounds ridiculous, actually I have found (thanks to Jae) that it is a *shooting/gun term* (of all things); "A tight constriction in the muzzle of a shotgun, producing a long range and tight pattern".

    Does anyone in the UK remember the ads in the 1980s for a perfume called Sheila? (I think it must have been around 1987.) It was branded as an Australian fragrance and had a really ugly bottle with a little metal bushman's hat strung with corks as its lid.

    It was a hideous bottle and a horrible advert, but it was extremely successful - I remember my Mum's half brother wanted a bottle for his girlfriend and came back very dejected from shops, having learned it was all a spoof to try to gauge how successful particular kinds of advertising were. Stores were paid to tot up how many people had inquired about Sheila and report back to the advertisers. The only reference to it I could find to the campaign online is http://www.dynamiclogic.com/eu/press...overage/?id=69 (a few paras down). The whole thing suggests to me that no matter how tasteless, ugly or class-free an ad campaign is, it'll work as long as the ads are ubiquitous enough!

    Well, I've seen it all. Literally. For M7 to be advertised with a guy with his dick hanging out, is beyond my ability to rationalize. Is it really like this in other countries? Call me ethnocentric, but that's just freakin' weird! He should have trimmed up a bit more too.

    Supermarky, if I come across a fragrance ad with a giant hard-on, you'll be first on my list of people to let know. LOL!

    What is the world coming to?! yeah, just rest the bottle right on his taint, that will sell millions. lol

    Some of the other ads on this site are pretty good also. The Agent Provocateur were interesting.

    This thread did provide some nice laughs.
