More Bang For The Advertising Buck


Recently a design student in Amsterdam, tired of ads being placed everywhere, set up a satirical website. The site advertises for companies to place ads in such places as on zoo animals, floating billboards, and on the chest and thighs of prostitutes.

He might be on to something but the product placement on the chest and thighs of hookers would have to be well thought out.


Some Ads That Might Work:
Viagra and other impotence drugs
Condom's
Poker.net
My Space.com


Some Ads That Might Not Work:
Wisconsin Cheese Board
Wendy's 'Where's The Beef' Ads.
Valtrex Herpes Suppression Medication

I am undecided on feminine hygiene ads. I just wonder if they could be done tastefully.

Beano probably wouldn't be a good ad either.
How about Ball Park Franks?? That might work.

We saw the new Pirates movie too. It was great!! I was not impressed at all with Superman Returns, but I had high hopes for Pirates. It did not disappoint.
I'm anxious to see the next one. Arrrrrgh!!

CT said...

porn websites would work best I bet... LOL

Ben Heller said...

Unbelievable Fuzz.

Good ones...
Easi- Grow Compost.
Ever Ready long life batteries

Rinstead mouth ulcer treatment
Fix-o-dent denture adhesive

starbender said...

I'm back! Muhahahaaaa....
Yes, we are slowly becoming a planet of freaks! Is nothing sacred???
I for one cannot see going 2 the zoo and looking at animals with advertising on them! How far can we take greed??? :(
Did U like the Pirates of the Caribbean? I wanna C it!!!
;]

Curare_Z said...

Good ones:Penile implant doctors; Milk (it does the body good and comes in jugs, right?)

Bad ones: Carpet cleaners; Massingill or other douches.

michaelm said...

I'm thinking "No-Pest" strips for a bad ad.
As far as "Ballpark Franks", do you mean the ones that plump up when you cook 'em? ;)
I heard someone recently talking about putting advertising on homeless people.
Like giving them a blanket with the Nike logo on it; Just do it.
Kinda sick but Lord knows the homeless need a blanket now and then...

The Phoenix said...

I think you could advertise 7-11's Slurpee on either the chest or thigh of a hooker.

Blue Star Ointment? Not good.

Mike said...

How about an ad for a "wood floor" company. That would serve two purposes, no?

:P fuzzbox said...

jamie dawn: Beano would be inappropriate probably. Plump when you cook em franks might work. Glad I didn't waste my time on Supes but Pirates was good.

ct: They would but I doubt you could get a hooker to wear an ad for freeones.com.

ben: I like the batteries idea. 'They just keep going and going.'

starbender: Nice to see you back! I enjoyed the flick although the ending could have been better. Oh well, I would have watched part three anyway.

:P fuzzbox said...

curare: Those milk moustaches are a bit provocative.

michael: No pest strips might be a little much. Homeless product placement seems strange.

phoenix: When I hear Slurpie's, I think back to the old SNL skit discussing the various forms of herpes.
What do you call herpes from oral sex? Slurpies
What do you call herpes from a dwarf? Twerpes
The list went on and on.

mike: Signed, sealed, delivered.

Ann Alsex said...

Can't male prostitutes get in on the fun too?

oldfartswife said...

haha fuzz, you sure can come up with da shit.
I would think the fem hygiene ads would be a good thing. I would not mind one bit to let folks know I not only smell clean, but that I am clean. The herpes ads would scare me, Would you have sex with someone if they told you they had herpes, but take meds, and do not have an "outbreak" at the moment? Honestly?

Leigh said...

This is priceless. What about some ani drug ads!

Have a great day.

Mimi said...

oldfartswife is right, you surely can come up with the shit.

Whats sad is there are people willing to wear those ads.

:P fuzzbox said...

ann: Great idea! That's where the Ball Park Franks could come in 'they plump when you cook 'em', also M&M's 'they melt in your mouth not in your hand', or scrubbing bubbles 'they work harder so you don't have to.'


oldfart's wife: I honestly wouldn't.

leigh: Like 'Just Say No' on the backside?

mimi: I am sure that they would. It's all a question of money.

Green Eyes said...

Oh, the images you create in my head, Fuzz! You get me going and then I'm a few tangents away from your original story!

Yeah, don't ask, you don't want to know, trust me!

:P fuzzbox said...

green eyes: But I'm dieing to hear! Don't leave me hanging.

Ol' Lady said...

travel ad for Australia - 'Have a visit down under'
Could be put in many places - 'Where's the beef?'
'A little dab will do'
'Eat more chicken, not beef'
It's amazing what one can come up with.....if you think long enough...

Sherri said...

I would think a prostitute would be a perfect place to have ads for STD medicines! LOL

RobynB said...

Got Milk? :)

ozymandiaz said...

Before ya know it hookers and homeless people will have corporate sponsers like race cars. Hmmmm...I wonder who will work on the "pit" crews...

:P fuzzbox said...

ol'lady: Love the down under.

sherri: Ewww yuck.

robyn: You betcha, It does a body good. Thanks for dropping in.

ozy: 'Pit' crews, huhuhuhuhu. Gotta luv it.

Bruce said...

Oh c'mon, you just know Hooters is going to take advantage of this..

Green Eyes said...

OK, Fuzz, but don't say I didn't warn ya!

Verizon's, "Can you hear me now?" and I'll leave the visuals all up to you!

Ann Alsex said...

Fuxxy you are a creative genius!

Vic said...

oooooh KY of course. "Slippery when wet"

Which reminds me of the tattoo idea of a turkey on the inside of one thigh and a Christmas tree on the inside of the other so you can say "there's good eatin between the holidays." Hehehe

rockyjay said...

I always though those Amsterdam Coffee Houses (not to be confused with Starbucks) are good source of creativity.

I hear their "brownies" are delicious...

:P fuzzbox said...

bruce: That would be perfect.

green eyes: That guy kinda freaks me out. I bet a lawn care company would work. I even have a good tagline, 'Put your bush in our hands.'

ann: Thank you soo much!

vic: KY would be perfect. Might help with their new product, Warming Mist. And that eating between the holidays is phunny!

:P fuzzbox said...

rocky jay: I bet the coffehouses have been the source of many illuminated ideas other than strange and unusual sandwich combonations.

Green Eyes said...

See! I knew you, of all people, would follow right where I was going! ^5

Perplexio said...

Speaking of appropriate advertising... I got a kick out of this weekend's sponsorship of the Western Open Golf Tournament:

The Cialis Western Open Golf Tournament. At least they're giving name recognition to their target demographic!

Metal Mark said...

What about Liquor and Poker records? Yes, it is a real record label.

Pixie said...

I think he should also sell "butt space " too. He missed that one. just think od the large ad space cash you could make with a full back and butt.

:P fuzzbox said...

green eyes: That's kinda scary for you huh.

perplexio: That is phunny.

metal mark: They would be a shoe in.

pixie: I can picture one of those ads for personal injury lawyers. 'Have you been rear ended in an accident?'

Perplexio said...

Next thing you know the LPGA tour will be co-sponsored by The L Word and Girlfriends magazine.

LisaBinDaCity said...

OY, OY, OY... did I say OY? ;-)

Catch said...

I think if they do butt ads they should advertise preperation H.

Keshi said...

I read this somewhere else :)

**My Space.com

lol!

Keshi.

Phats said...

HAHA where's the beef nice

Haven't you ever heard those ebay stories? Where they sell space on their forehead and something to advertise for a month? I'd do it for the right amount of money haha. There was a dude here in Indiana that sold the "ghost" that lived in house on ebay. Crazy shit i tell ya

Jenna Howard said...

You can't forget the old AT&T commercials: "Reach out and touch someone"

McDonald's "I'm Lovin' It"

:P fuzzbox said...

perplexio: At least they won't be breaking any truth in advertising laws.

lisa: Yep.

catch: The flames would look cool.

keshi: That's the trouble with commenting on a news story. But I hope my take on it was different.

phats: How much is a used ghost going for these days?

jenna: Excellent additions.

Keshi said...

ur tke on it was EXCELLENT n FUNNY!

Keshi.

:P fuzzbox said...

Thanks keshi.
