"QUANTUM SHOT" #598
Link - by A. Abrams



You are going to be shocked and entertained... and then maybe you're actually going to buy stuff

It would be simply impossible to list or even mention all of the great ads that appeared since our last issue. We're sure you've seen some of them already in the running campaigns, and perhaps even succumbed to their appeal and reached for the wallet. For this is what they are: creative masterpieces designed to part you and your money.

As always, this next installment in our highly popular series covers print, urban, and viral advertisements, chosen for originality and lasting impression.

Are you ready? Let's dive in -

Not an ad, but the best placement of street art possible: "Periodic Table", indeed -



Homegrown mattress sale ad? -



Continuing a popular theme of effective advertisement in elevators, here are some good examples:

Sometimes shadows play unwanted tricks on billboard advertisements (this one says "Vote for...") -



This is not an ad, but simply creative photography - although it is a masterpiece, in our humble opinion (and advertising agencies should take note):

Awesome ads..

The one with the polar bear and giraffe is from Buenos Aires Zoo (http://www.zoobuenosaires.com.ar/)

The guys with the bra, is a campaign of condoms for Spring brake. It is also from Argentina.
(http://www.tulipan.com.ar/home/index.php)

I recommend the Postales (postcards) section on that site... very creative.

The piggybanks vs cops scene is from the Transperth campaign to promote its cashless ticketing system Smartrider.
There's a series of ads but that is the best. Probably because the piggy seems to be telling the dog 'You can kiss my porcine porcelain rear end!'

For brilliance and simplicity, I rate that Bosch drill ad with the woodgrain highest.
