Government Ads on Traffic Light Buttons (0)

Don't know if they are real, but Adpunch says these are "government sponsored guerilla advertising campaign undertaken in London to garner public support on government policies in the U.K." Would love it if they were real.

"Drowned Child" Underwater Ad (0)

This ad on the bottom of a swimming pool showing a drowned child almost tops this decal of a dead woman. Love the look on the kid's face.

Rain-Sensitive Billboard for Mascara (2)

-- core 77

"Naked Breasts Against Speeding" Campaign (0)

An anti-speeding campaign in Denmark with topless women holding speed limit signs. Must have been inspired by this sign:

I am sure this one has been posted before but couldn't find it so there. This 25 ft. iPod promotes Columbus Aliva magazine and plays music by local musicians. It's powered by a real iPod nano. Here's the playlist.
-- MacDailyNews; thank you, Elise

Outdoor Ads to Fight Homelessness (0)

A couple of unrelated campaigns to fight homelessness from Invisible Red. Wonder if people tune out of the ads that are too scary, and whether it's too hard to create a more positive but an equally powerful execution.

I bet this soap dispenser isn't anywhere in the States, but beyond that it's anyone's guess about what this is.

Tampon "Cycle, Moto " Spoof Billboard (0)

The Italian Spot Anatomy finds this Russian spoof of Motorola's Moto campaign in dubbio gusto. The billboard apparently promotes tampons and says, in Russian, "MOTO CYCLES" (the pun sort of works in English, too). Don't know if it's real of 'shopped, but will put an update if I find out anything.

Speaking of dubbio gusto, they also have this billboard for Axe:

"Skoda Parked Near Monument" Augmented Billboards (0)

Ad Blog Arabia brings us this wonderful set of billboards for Skoda found in Prague. As they say, "The actual statue was covered from all sides by large billboards depicting.. well.. the statue, with the car added in. When you stand at certain angles the add blends in almost perfectly with the surrounding scene." The blog has many more pictures, too. We've seen billboards augmenting reality before: in this Amnesty campaign, and in Estonia, for example.

Guy Cleaning Teeth on Orbit Billboard (0)

Someone else's teeth, that is. Sort of the same worker-on-a-billboard idea, although not quite, for Mini.

Volunteers are recruited through this very cool "one-man stretcher" campaign in Germany.

"Think of Your Sponsor" Locker Room Poster (0)

A poster in a soccer locker room reads: "Important! Think of your sponsor under all circumstances." Right. Always keep your eye on the goal and your mind on the paycheck. Love the attitude.
