10 Fun Ads That Only Foot Lovers Would Love
I'm just gonna state this up front: In general, I find feet to be gross. Sure, there are some pretty feet out there... nice, smooth, manicured. Then there are feet like mine. I'm not even going to post a picture of these things. Let's just say that it looks like I'm growing an extra toe out of each foot. Yuck.
With that little caveat out of the way, I'm now proud to post some innovative examples of ads focused on using feet as a marketing technique.
Foot Ad #1: Pony
This ad for Pony sneakers is pretty cool. I wish I could get my foot to do that... I would be able to flick off jerk-wads without them even knowing.
Foot Ad #2: Sony PSP
If you could manipulate your feet to flick a bird, then you wouldn't be too far away from being able to sign for the deaf, as indicated in the ad above.
What this has to do with the Sony PSP is beyond me. I have one, and I've never needed to communicate with the deaf in order to play it...
Foot Ad #3: ID Shoes
I'm not sure I understand the concept. I assume it has to do with sculpting a perfect shoe... for your foot-face.
At least it wouldn't hurt as much if you tripped in a parking lot. You could just flex your... face, and bounce right back up.
Foot Ad #4: Birno Stock House
With the high cost of quality shoes these days, maybe prayer is the ticket.
Foot Ad #5: Anlene Actifit
Of course, you have to be careful what you pray for. She was going for sexy stilettos. Instead she got a power drink that you have to grip precariously between your toes.
Foot Ad #6: Havaianas Slim
I like everything about this ad. It simply states that Havaianas Slim sandals are eye-catching. Even the ad copy is clever:
"If he praises your eyes, he's thinking about your breasts.
"If he praises your smile, he's thinking about your breasts.
"If he praises your Havaianas, either the guy has a foot fetish or he's thinking about your breasts."
Foot Ad #7: Brastemp Refrigerators
This is a great example of an ad that blatantly goes after people with a foot fetish. What do feet have to do with a refrigerator? Not much, unless your in a morgue.
Foot Ad #8: a Bela Sintra Wine
I suspect that this ad is realistic in showing the potential disaster caused by trying to pour wine with your feet.
It would be fun, though. With luck there's a nice, large glass just out of frame catching at least some of that fine libation.
Foot Ad #9: Dr. Scholl's Odor Destroyers
I included this in here just because I thought it was funny and clever. While no foot is expressly involved, the concept of a sock smelling so bad that a dung beetle would steal it is pretty creative.
I wouldn't get within a mile of a sock like that...
Foot Ad #10: ESPN
There's not much to say about this commercial except that I suspect that this couple got banned from the restaurant moments after the gentleman's talented feet did their naughty deed...
