The The Cannes International Advertising Festival is going on right now and a French AIDS prevention campaign just won the bronze medal. This is great, of course. So are the ads although some think they’re a bit weird. “That’s the most penis heads (L) I’ve ever seen in an ad,” writes copyranter.
Over at Salon, Catherine Price writes, “The guy looks like he’s just been shot out of a follicle into “outer space” — a dark, nebulous world of boobs, mouths and legless women’s crotches (which look disturbingly like overripe apricots).”
We here at ScribeMedia are hoping that when we kick of the next series of Reporting AIDS episodes, we might get a word or two from the campaigns creators.
