I've heard of people bulletproofing their windows, but never have I seen an ad for it. This ad from India is for the Bullet Proofing of SUV's, but the fact that the print is so small makes it look like a customized poster for a James Bond movie. Customized car safety kits just aren't cutting it anymore. There are worse dangers than a flat tire or a broken radiator. Someone shooting your vehicle up with an Uzi is a very pressing issue because nobody wants to be caught out there. Does this mean that even normal people have to worry about surprise attacks in India? Possibly. Diplomats and heads of state aren't the only people that need protection. Or maybe just people that drive SUV's are in extreme danger.

I am fortunate enough to say that I have yet found the need to use wrinkle cream. However, it is good to know what kind of products do and don't work when that time comes. Advertisements have to do a lot of work to properly market and sell personalized skin products. Deracine's aluminum foil customized poster did the job quite well. It shows how "wrinkled" the lady's skin is, but with a circular rub of fingers her skin appears flawlessly smooth. I don't know about you, but the demonstration would certainly prompt me to either buy the product or recommend it to a friend.

Children are sneaky little creatures. I know because I used to be one. However, they often do things to make parents seem crazy when in all actuality, they're the crazy ones. If your child is overly dramatic and can be so creative until it's scary, please do the world a favor and put those talents to proper use. As seen in this ad for the 2010 Young Director Awards at Cannes, the imagination can be a crazy thing. It's like a promotional poster for a movie about demented children who want their parents to suffer. I feel a weird amount of sorrow for the mother in the ad, even thought I know it's an ad, for having a drama queen as a daughter. Message to parents everywhere: don't allow your children to use pen and paper in the car if there is chance you might speed. We don't need an ending to this ad to know how it goes.

First-aid is a skill that many people should know. Not only because it could possibly save the life of a loved one, but because it could save a life in general. St. John's Ambulance understands this and their print ads are showing various stories where first-aid could have saved lives. it's like a promotional sticker for personalized first-aid kits.Or in this case, St. John's Ambulance. People dying from things that could have been prevented with immediate care is reason enough to create an ad like this one. I like thought provoking messages rather than scare tactics to get attention.If you don't read the note on the side then you're sure to miss what the ad is about.

Sony’s new ads for its Bravia internet television feature kids as the stars of huge soccer games and rock concerts. They are getting their point across that having Bravia TV means you can relive the greatest moments from your childhood up until now (whatever age you might be). The fact that bit’s high-quality internet television makes it all the more enticing because the images are sharp and you don’t have to squint at the computer screen anymore. In this particular ad young boys enter the stadium for the world cup and play a game of soccer as children would, but with a crowds roaring for them. Customized t-shirts and promotional noise makers will see a decrease in meaning for those people with Bravia TV. Memorable moments will be just as memorable on the TV screen.

Forget having legs of steel, now you can have eyelashes of steel! Covergirl gets loud with this print ad that says very little. It’s just an image of steel hooks in the form of an eyelash and Covergirl mascara at the bottom. Ladies, if you’re jet-setting then this is an item that definitely needs to be in your customized toiletries bag. Mascara can be a tricky product to buy. It can’t run and has to last all day long. I’m guessing this is one of Covergirl’s strongest mascaras if they’re comparing the lashes to steel hooks.

A man should never hit a woman, but it’s among the long list of things they do that they shouldn’t. Domestic violence happens somewhere in the world every second; both men and women are victims. Amnesty International has recognized the “trend” and their print ad is genius. A great way to get the message out there would be to hand out customized awareness bracelets that say “Domestic violence is still fashionable.” It’s a statement that makes sense and will invoke thought into the heads of many people. After seeing this print ad I am interested in doing more to stop domestic violence and make it a fad that should never resurface. By domestic violence being fashionable people don’t react to it the way they should. Good job Amnesty. Maybe they can include a series of promotional t-shirt with the words “Wife Beater” written in fancy script. That will surely get people talking.

Drunk driving is an issue that we can never be too informed about or exposed to. It can affect anyone, anywhere, anytime. An awareness campaign in Brazil used the shock tactic on pretty tipsy bar goers. The tab was replaced with what their costs would be for medical needs if they drive while intoxicated. Naturally, the amount if charges caused an uproar, but once they realized what the actual message was the bar goers were thankful. There’s no better way to make a person think about drunk driving than to approach them when they’re drinking. If the bars were to print up promotional t-shirts I doubt anyone would be able to read them in the dimly lit bar. Or if they were to hand out imprinted drink ware, they would surely be put to use, but with an alcoholic beverage. All in all, the best way to get somebody thinking is to scare them! Wouldn’t you agree?

So, the new PSA for the Candie’s Foundation features Bristol Palin, daughter of Sarah Palin, speaking about teenage pregnancy. However, she isn’t talking about normal teenage pregnancy ,but those with a more fortunate lifestyle. Then everything is stripped from her. The baby has no more personalized toys to play with and Bristol basically says if she didn’t’ have emotional and, most importantly, a lot of financial support, “it wouldn’t be pretty”. I don’t think the ad was an appropriate approach to take towards teen pregnancy. They could’ve just placed a promotional t-shirt on her that said “Good Thing I’m Rich”.

Nissan has decided to give the big boys some rest and by big boys I mean life-size cars. In their newest ad for the Sentra SE-R, Nissan uses a customized remote controlled car. Though the car is way smaller than normal size, its need for speed is just as hard as its parent version. Filmed by helicopters and a customized remote controlled car with camera attachments, the baby Nissan Sentra zooms through a neighborhood to end up in the garage right besides the life-size model. Napoleon complex? I highly doubt it!

The Burger King mascot “The King” has gone mad and people are mad about it. The newest commercial in the Burger King arsenal is causing some tension in the mental health arena. In this ad for it’s $3.99 Steakhouse Burger, The King is chased by down by mental institution orderlies because he is giving away all that beef at a low price of $3.99. I think it’s brilliant, but the Arlington, VA National Alliance of Mental Health doesn’t. They’re outrage has earned The King’s newest commercial a personalized sticker that says “Banned from T.V.!”. Oh well, I’m sure this isn’t the last of shocking commercials we’ll see from The King. I mean after all he has been breaking into McDonald’s for their recipes, the guy is a bad ass! To play on the situation, Burger King should print up promotional t-shirts saying “ Free The King!”.

I hope I’m not alone when I say that I love Old Spice commercials! Their new ads feature Terry Crews, from movie and Everybody Hates Chris fame, and his famous pecks! If this is what a man who uses Old Spice looks like then every bottle must come with a customized body sculpting set. I’m guessing his body is supposed to represent the strength of the body wash. Well fellas, if you’re browsing the market for a body wash that can fight odor and people then you’re in luck! I can just see Terry Crews shredding a personalized tank top that reads “Odor” off his body. Too insightful? Sorry, but you get my drift. Consider Old Spice customized toiletries for the man who hates to stink.
