That volvo one isn`t as much sex selling as it is humor selling, I would think.

I don`t find this sad or wrong in any way... it`s just marketing. People like sex, that`s reality- deal with it. I find it hard to believe that any of this stuff actually offends you guys, but that you`re just saying it does because you feel like you should.

I would feel bad if someone died from breast cancer. However, at the same time four others would have died from lung cancer.

They forgot the pink breast cancer awareness ribbons.

If the marketers who place these logos on their product truly wanted to save as many lives as possible, they would support lung cancer research, as that kills over four times as many people as breast cancer. Unfortunately, lungs are not sexy, as a result the breast gets a spot on all the packages of M&Ms and whatever else has a little pink ribbon on it.

what the f***?!
You wouldn`t feel that way if you mother almost died from it would you?
Breast cancer research has better fundraising.
not saying one`s more important, but it`s not like it has anything to do with sexual themes.

i agree that the puma ad was the worst of the bunch, most of them were done in poor taste. i mean yes, sex sells, but you have to know where to draw the line.

I`m still completely traumatized by the 32 oz. Gatorade bottle realization, which I think was posted here on I-Am-Bored. Seriously. So my tolerance for other stuff of its ilk is basically zero.

If you don`t know what I`m talking about, just LOOK at the next 32 oz. bottle of Gatorade you see. Imagine it without the lid. Yeccccccccccccchhhhhhhhhh. This world has a one-track mind, a self-destructive one-track mind, man.

ok someone wrote:
"People will probably buy the poo, then it sucks. but they`ll still buy it, cause they saw that ad."

Isn`t that the point of advertising to get people to buy stuff even if it doesnt work. I mean look at informercials. Grant it these are a bit more provacative but if sex sells why not use it. Its not all the companies fault that people in this world are so easily amused by sex but they sure as hell can use it to there advantage.

The link worked for me.

I`m still trying to figure out how TP can be associated with sex in any way ...

Hellknight10, Ads work in the way that they get people to remember their products. The more outrageous the ad, the better people will remember the products and then think about the brand when buying items. People like sex.

wow thats just sad
how the hell is toilet paper sexy?
none of these ads show me how useful their products are
"im going to get a vacuum so that i can do naughty things"
"i should buy coffee so that i have intimate times with my girl while im getting covered in it"
"wow milk is really helpful for people, oh wait is that man milk?"
pathetic...

These comments show that it only works on males. Even though most of these were only targeting men, Puma for example wasn`t, but no female likes it...

*sigh* this makes me sad, too. Toilet paper. It`s a necessity. Does it really need to be marketed in such a provocative way? I hate that sex sells.. ads are getting worse, and a lot of it is very subtle. And because it works, more and more companies are turning to sex to get our attention =(

Sex sells. Duhh. Where have you been?

And btw people used to bathe in milk (it was rumoured that mona lisa bathed in milk cos her daddy was a farmer), so the milk ad makes sense (sort of).

That Puma one is an urban legend! I am almost positive I saw it on Snopes, and that ... mess ... on her leg wasn`t in the original ad.
