Absolut Voyeur (0)



Last year's three-week store installation in Sydney. People peering through the Absolut-shaped peephole saw themselves on close-circuit television. Check out more billboards and outdoor installations for Absolut in this part i and part ii series.

Cut-out People Billboard for BMW (0)



One of these guys is real, but the rest are part of a fence decoration for BMW. More at Mighty Optical Illusions.

Billboard for Nose Drops (0)


This is a billboard for nasal decongestant Sorine. The copy says something like "If congested, use Sorine". Very cool although the message takes some time to get through.

Outdoor Campaign for Zippo Lighters (0)



Zippo Windproof Lighters campaign in Singapore, via Advertising for Peanuts and Cerebro Creativo. Placed on taxi tops and really burning.

Bandages Outdoor (0)



Outdoor for 3M bandages (can't say band-aid, right?) from Brief Blog.

Playboy Outdoor Campaign (0)



A campaign for Playboy Argentina puts paparazzi in public showers and restrooms. Comparate to this campaign from Kellogg's that also transformed stall walls into something else.



Copy on the towel below reads, "I can be a March playmate" (source: Coloribus).




This is a from a different Playboy outdoor campaign, where they placed mirrors to get the upskirt metaphor going (source: Iconema).

And, of course, you remember this classic Playboy billboard in Germany.

Billboard for Kellogg's (0)



A billboard for something less fattening than something else via Marketing Alternatif.

"Erection" Billboard (0)



A billboard for some pills that cure erectile disfunction. Compare to this billboard for Electrolux vacuum cleaners. (via Creative Criminal)

"Harder Than Truth" Bathroom Mirrors (0)



Adverblog brings us the news about these bathroom mirrors for the Germany's Bild newspaper. The mirrors say, "Nothing is harder than the truth." Very tame by German ad standards, too. The tagline should've been more like "Featuring dickheads since Gutenberg". See some more bathroom fun.

Ariel Billboards (0)



A series of billboards for Ariel at Frederik Samuel's. If you like this one (I do), you'll appreciate this SlimFast billboard from a few days ago.

"Homeless Child" Cut-out (0)



Do you have the hear to push away a homeless child? A cut-out figure decal on some Indian doors by Trikya Grey Advertising. Kind of like this ballerina or this pie-in-the-face. More images on Coloribus.

Star Wars Billboard (0)

Outdoor Stunt by Goodyear (1)



Lovely concept, but I think there's something lost in translation in this outdoor campaign for Goodyear. The sign says, according to Coloribus,

(front) "Your vehicle has been towed. Call 0800 081-8181."
(back) "For sticking on the roads."

Billboard for SlimFast (0)





Interesting use of perspective in this "now you are fat, now you are not" billboad for SlimFast.

Nike "Cars" Outdoor (2)



Cars decorated as Nike kicks in Mexico. The front car carrying the ball must this one from a previous campaign.

Pro-Life Monument To Britney Spears (0)



I don't know if this is outdoor enough to qualify for Billboardom, but I only have a limited number of blogs and it's hard to imagine how this relates to the future of advertising or ads in computer games, so here.

Anyway, "a nude Britney Spears on a bearskin rug while giving birth to her firstborn marks a "first" for Pro-Life. Pop-star Britney Spears is the "ideal" model for Pro-Life and the subject of a dedication at Capla Kesting Fine Art in Brooklyn’s Williamsburg gallery district, in what is proclaimed the first Pro-Life monument to birth, in April. Dedication of the life-sized statue celebrates the recent birth of Spears’ baby boy, Sean, and applauds her decision of placing family before career."

All this comes from this site where you can get many other details.

Bodies As Billboards (0)



Ok, so Bodies as Billboards site isn't really about billboards, so treat it as a public service announcement or something. The site's name has the word "billboards" in it, its slogan urges to "advertise for shit that matters", and I'm sure the guys at sexblo.gs (whether it's work-safe depends on where you work) who have been so gracious with their traffic will appreciate the pictures.

Billboards Cause Injuries (0)


image: Moscow News

Who would've thought billboards pose such a threat to society. Over the weekend, a section of Moscow subway collapsed when some dudes were erecting billboard above it and damaged piles supporting the tunnel's roof (ABC story here). And last week a billboard in Toronto fell and injured a few people (AdRants, Torontoist). I need to put a disclaimer here urging you guys not to try this stuff at home, or else.

Adidas has encased these women doing stretching exercises in individual glass cubes. Spotted on Flickr by AdRants, who aptly named the image file "adidas_cube_ladies".

Here's the ballerina I was trying to find yesterday; she promotes, what else, a ballet. This is in connection with yesterday's post on the pie-in-the-face decal. Source: Frederik Samuel.

Posters for Fitness Centers (0)





Two different fitness centers, similar ideas. There's also a recent one for a yoga class, but I have to remember where it was.

"Birds Eye View" Floor Design (0)





A very creative floor in what looks like an airport terminal. The only piece of info that Babelfish wrestled out of this Chinese site is that it has something to do with United Airlines. The same page also links to a set of images showing an airplane-themed redesign of an underpass.

Update (March 22): It's a public art project in Sacramento Airport. More details here.
