Sex Sells #33: Odd Products
It always fascinates me when a product unexpectedly uses the "sex sells" approach. You expect it from advertising for cars, stereos, fashion, booze, and tobacco.... but when a product like an office labeler, rice or horse manure tries to sell the sizzle, it's a happy surprise.
This hiring service decided to go topless in their advertising. Okay. I won't deny - it definitely gets your attention.
They're selling eye drops... yet their models are in complete disco attire and about to make whoopie. I get they're giving away a diamond, but it's not the approach you expect from an eye drop ad.
Multiple Sclerosis - a worthy cause, without queston.... but why the semi-naked chick? It was the 70s after all.
You wouldn't expect a hydraulic brake manufacturer would try to sell the sizzle, but I'm certainly glad they did. Abex - you da real MVP.
Okay we're selling false eyelashes in a pharmacy trade magazine... let's have the model be totally nude. I mean, when she's sitting you can practically see the cooch!
Not exactly your average Home Depot advertisement. Does a nude chick really help sell paint?
The wife, naked as a jaybird, behind a dimpled glass shower door - the perfect picture for an oil heat advertisement, right?
Antacids and sex; not a combination you'd expect, but I'm game.
The look she's giving us - like she wants to rock our world.... and it's a gas station ad. Go figure.
This ad is actually from 1940. A barenaked lady is used to sell shallow well water systems. Now I've seen it all. We can all go home now.
