Ads with a difference...


Thank God the zoom was invented (Kodak)

I think this Ad is powerful because it gives the messages that anyone can take professional pictures without getting in harms way and thus the camera gives one more opportunities.

Ad for the Australian Red Cross

I think its the simplicity of the Ad that makes it so different. A lot of people these days want to do good but they substitute money for "real" stuff and this Ad wants people to donate something that is as easy as putting few quarters in a money-can.

The copy says "Reach out to children with autism"

This Ad is so creative because all these kids need is a helping hand.

The copy says, "Harry's bread. Nice and soft." Indeed.

I found this Ad very cute :)

Ad by Cancer Patient and Association

This Ad is something that will get everyone's attention because it gives a wrong premise in bold but get to the real message in fine print.


The small byline at the bottom says, "Don't Abort the Girl Child."

This is one of the most powerful Ads I have seen but don't know how many people who needs the message will get this Ad.

WOW...a post on one of my fav topics...I like to read about adverts...how they were conceptualized...aam aadmi ka view on them...

The Aussie Red Cross, Autism, Smoking one & the last one give out such a strong msg..But, as you said...for the last one...will ppl in Haryana, Punjab (where at this time, female foeticide is at an all time high) get the msg & understand it too ....

The lil girl is sooo cute with her head on the slice of bread...sweet!!

Thanks for sharing Ads with a difference with us !! :)
