Hunting for Eggs -11 Interesting Uses of Eggs in Advertising

The following ads take a different look at eggs, and companies around the world use the incredible egg in advertising for a variety of products.

1. Fighting the Neo-Nazi Movement, Germany

In Germany, Neo-Nazis are often called skin heads and identified by their shaved egg shaped heads. Thus, in the Loud Against Nazis Campaign , specially designed egg cups that looked like the skin heads were sent around in the mail. Breaking eggs designed to look like the heads of Nazis for breakfast was meant to raise awareness and to serve as a reminder about doing something against the Neo-Nazis.
