Manix lube

Manix.jpg
Clicking on the ad will take you to Manix's website . . .

Can you might appreciate the subtlety of this ad, done by a Brazilian agency, for a lubricating gel (K-Y equivalent) targeting the French market? It appears the Brazilians were trying to come up with an ad that was neither offensive nor tasteless.

The picture looks completely innocent...until the details sink in.

Apparently, this ad has created quite a buzz in Europe. The ad company has won several awards for it, including 18th Annual London International Advertising Awards and the LEAFyear2 Awards Ceremony announced at the Galveias Palace in Lisbon, Portugal. (See the ad agency Ansell for more details).


If you don't get it, take your time. All I can say (as a hint), apparently, the stuff really works.

Pinky is a meathead. Don't be so mean to others. I didn't get it at first either.

Hm, that was the worst of their print ads. The other ones are very clever and suggestive (and naughty, esp the sauna one)

She appears to be sitting on this side of the post, though, so only the folks who don't see well, or maybe those folks who get upset by naked invisble men and the like, will "get it".

As you can see from the edging around the bottle, the picture has been photoshopped to shorten it. The original is here.

Post in French is a "bite" as in "Bite d'amarrage" and bite in French means also.... dick.
