Bad Ad or Good Lubricant?


This is an ad for Gel Manix, a lubricant. From my little understanding of global languages I think this was done somewhere in France. But there's something about this ad that makes me not like it a lot. Can't really figure out what it is! What do you think, is it just about delivering the message or is the manner in which you do it a important as well? Judge for yourself!

Isn't it a fake?

I think so mate. I saw the picture some time ago. But just the picture not the ad. That's why I think it's a fake. Anyway, I don't think any company would launch anything like that.

U know how there is a thin line between beautiful and vulgarity. this one crosses that line and i think its vulgar. there is nothing beautiful abt it. nothing that makes me thinkg wow! great idea.

If the copy read "lubricant for aspiring porn stars," the ad would be better.

I think it depends on how dirty minded you are, It's a good ad, it let's you to use your imagination, and I think there will be no one that wont understand the what's the products benefits... after all, isn't that what advertising is about?

Hey, Ads are for spreadung the message about the product. And this one achieves that objective upto a very good extent. KUDOS to this Ad creator.
