One ad break, different extremes

November 11, 2010


In one ad break just now, saw two ads which provoked very different reactions. First off, loved the Footlocker ad – it starts mildly shocking (is it an STD awareness ad or a film about domestic violence), challenging (because of this), but it gets the humour just right.
