First the gay McDonald’s ad and now this homoerotic gem from Orangina, the refreshing drink with the genital-sounding name. The ad agency created TV spots with anthropomorphized creatures using the drink to mop floors, remove pimples, and condition their hair. The NoSite Agency (online strategy counseling and PR) group) calls the ad “too polemic”, and so it won’t be shown on television.
But it doesn’t seem as controversial as it does confusing. Yeah irony is funny or whatever, but who markets soft drinks like aftershave? And why do I feel so turned on yet frightened thinking about the Puma and the man making out?
