This is the world's costliest Advertisement and the winner of this years
best Ad of the world . Everything is real with no graphics used costing
some 6.2 million US Dollars and 600 of take and retake.

Thought you might appreciate the subtlety of this ad, done by a Brazilian ad
agency, for a lubricating gel (K-Y equivalent) targeting the French market.

They were trying to come up with an ad that is not offensive or tasteless.

The picture looks completely innocent until you notice the details...

Apparently, it has created quite a buzz in Europe

And hey the budget was rock bottom

Dear Aadix,

I dont think the intent of the ad was to make you laugh nor anyone else laugh. The basic aim was to promote the product and to sell/suggest newer ways to women on using the product
