Three awesome artworks in this post created by Sergio Araya Caneo, Oscar Ramos, Gonzalo Palaveccino and Jaime Díaz Campistó. It’s a selection of ads for Alka, from the look of it some sort of gum (at least something for fresh breath). As I can’t find much about Alka itself, here are the ads and their details.
You show up late for the fourth time this week. Your coach glares at you with rage waiting to hear what you have to say. Without hesitating you look him straight in the eye and stick him with a well-aimed shot: “Coach, sorry I’m late but last night my grandmother had a heart attack, and I had to take her to the emergency room”. Bingo! Your coach understands, and it all ends with a big bear hug. Saved again, even though you don’t have a grandmother and the only emergency last night was when you ran out of beers… around 05:00 AM.
The auditorium door is closed, the exam started more than an hour ago. You turn the doorknob with the same determination you had last night when you were drunkenly dancing on the table. You walk into the room and before the progessor can say anything, you go on the attack with a: “Sorry professor. I was studying physics all night and fell asleep. If I fail this class I’ll lose my scholarship… my family can’t afford to pay for college”. Touché! You pierced him right in the heart. You passed the exam, and your professor never found out that your daddy buys you a new car every summer.
You arrive 2 hours late for your company’s most important meeting. Without knocking, you open the door. Everyon stares at you, dead serious. The tension of the moment makes you hate the 10 whiskeys you drank and the 2 blondes who wouldn’t let you sleep… You are really screwed. You react and, without thinking, you say: “Gentlemen, sorry for the delay, but my baby had a terrible night”. The meeting continues without anyone suspecting anything at all… You feel as crafty as a spy. Lethal as a ninja.
