Stories about travel, life, writing and parenting my college-age children (who think they don't need any more parenting). Oh! And the occasional amazing photograph (I like to play pro photographer on vacations.)
My hubby received this in an email, and I literally laughed
out loud when I saw it. I did a little web surfing and discovered the ad was a
real one; it was covered in the July 17, 2012 edition of ADWEEK.
Turns out it is a legitimate advertising campaign designed to sell Colgate
dental floss. Ingenious and hilarious!
If you haven’t already seen this, check it out! I’ll wait
while you take a leisurely scroll through the following three photos…
Now that you’ve had a chance to look them over…
In the first one you will now notice that the lady has an
extra finger on her hand. In the second one we have an extra arm resting on the
man’s shoulder, and in the last one the man is missing an ear!
So what do you think? Did the ad successfully prove that having
food stuck in your teeth draws more attention than any physical defect?
