    There is an interesting thing going around about a rather odd Puma ad. I was wondering if anyone had heard of a final conclusion or if a photoshop genius could get to the bottom of it. I'm interested because I am in the, brilliant piece of guerilla marketing camp.

    The link is below - not for the kids though.


    To the management - If you think the link is a bit to much, remove it. But with all the fake apple rumours/pictures that get the whole nine yards of photoshop detective work applied to them I thought if someone can figure out it, they would be here.

    Ah, what a shame.

    I thought you meant 10.3 (Puma) ;)

    Suggestive ads (although in this case it's a bit extreme) have made the rounds. I remember the one Ericsson phone ad. The phone had this "vibrate" function and was lined up get the idea.. ;)

    Sorry to disapoint. But I really would have posted in one of the Apple forums for that.

    I would say that some people placed sneakers on their feet then proceeded to initiate in oral sex, someone then photographed then and cropped the image.

    i had seen that ad before. but one thing i just now noticed was she had jizz on her leg. haha that makes it so funny. i hope its real because its funny, but also may offend some people.

    That my friends is a great AD. I absolutely love the idea of it. I personally hate all forms of censorship here in America. And Wish some companies would start pushing the limits more and more with ADs similar to this one. I think in this department the US has alot to learn from Europe and Canada

    let's say this... the whole theory that they put on the shoes, "went at it" and the shot was cropped.... Well, given her position... i mean, i'm guessing she wasn't even giving him head, and that the semen on her leg (sung to the tune of "send me on my way by rusted root) was probably some sort of corn starch/castor oil mixture.....

    Being in the ad business, you'd be surprised at how much of what you see is nice fancy studio dressing. :)

    We've used castor oil for splashes of vodka in vodka ads, etc etc etc and on and on and on

    I accidentally my whole location.
    Ha, wow, that's some funny sh*t, those shoes are ugly though, I'd rather be caught with that squirt on my leg than those shoes, they're hideous!

    well of course, i didnt really think it was really semen, just an ad, and they were making it look like she was giving head.
