    8 Best Ads Of Month

    Well, besides this tampon ad. July was an unusually good month for good advertising.

    1. Nexcare waterproof bandages (Thailand).


    Hilarious ads. Just fucking hilarious.

    Ad agency: O&M, Bangkok.

    Second ad below.

    2. FXB International (France).


    FXB is a nonprofit that fights poverty and AIDS for children worldwide.

    A clever and easy-to-get way to show how little you need to do to help.

    Ad agency: Publicis Conseil, Paris.

    3. Schweppes Limón Dry (Spain)

    I generally hate celeb endorsement campaigns, because they are usually lazily thought-out, wholly unentertaining commercials. But the choice of Iggy Pop here, for this particular product, is perfect. Bravo, China (the responsible Madrid ad agency). Third ad featuring a full upper body shot here.

    4. Starburst Flavour Morphs (UK)


    A simple, cute, and tasty way to show the product benefit.

    Love the hanging cherries.

    Ad agency: adam & eve/DDB, London.

    5. Hot Wheels Safari Series (India).


    Cute. Funny.

    Ad agency: O&M Mumbai.

    6. Parkinson's UK.


    A risky print campaign by London's Assembly Network, but if you know someone who has (or had) Parkinson's, it hits you both intellectually and emotionally. I hope it's doing some good. Second ad below. See all five ads from the campaign here.

    7. Krisview 360º CCTV (Indonesia)


    Simple. Funny. Memorable. Effective?

    Campaign won a Silver Lion at Cannes last month.

    Ad agency: JWT Jakarta.

    Second ad below.

    8. Pacific Blue Cross (Canada).


    Pacific Blue Cross rubs it into America's face .5 kilometers from the border with this clever billboard that mimics a highway sign that reminds homefolk to get travel insurance before heading to the land of far from free health insurance.

    Ad agency: Wasserman + Partners, Vancouver.
