It's quite disgusting, i think it's a bad campaign because it shows that with a condom you kill a child so it's horrible to use it.
The message is not in the good way.

Spooky.
I think there could have been a better solution for showing how condems prevent unwanted pregnacies. These left me with a very uneasy feeling.

Oh lighten up people. Not everyone worships the screaming little snotfarmers like you do.

Love it! Shows the horrors that rubbers prevent along with disease, then too, the horrors are a sort of disease if you think about it...

I rather like it.

Its kinda like visualizing putting an annoying childs head in a plastic bag.

OMG calm down ppl, I think this ad is hilarious. Do you know how much fun those kid models probably had doing that. Also all you anti-abortion ppl where does it stop? condoms are do not kill children if you use that logic you could say the girl that turned me down at the bar last weekend was a child killer cause I was going to get freaky with her. Loosen up, use your mind once and a while and religion is like communisum; it only works in theory.

I think it's an awesome idea.... having kids sucks.
besides, have you ever tried pushing one of those damn things out of your sex hole?

That is the best ad ever! Makes me actually WANT to use condoms!
[...] A friend at Harvard Business School recapped a talk given last night by Warren Buffet at the venerable institution. When asked how he would vote, Buffet gave this thought experiment: It is 24-hours before you’re to be born as a baby and a genie appears. He tells you that he thinks you’re a winner and has great confidence in you. So great is his confidence in you - that he is going to let you set the rules of the very world that you’ll be born into. You can set the social rules, the political rules, the economic rules-whatever you like. And whatever rules you set will apply for your lifetime and your kid’s lifetimes too. You think: This sounds great! What’s the catch? And the genie then tells you that you don’t know if you’ll be born, rich or poor; black or white; male or female; sick or healthy; intelligent or slow. The only thing you know is that there’s a lottery with 6 billion different lotto balls and what you start life as is represented by one of them. [...]

i like it.
its a graphic reminder that pregnancy occurs, not just a late period, and babies grow up into demanding people, not just cute little bundles that simply deprive you of sleep.

it does jarr a bit, but i would have to disagree with the comment by benoit that states;

'it shows that with a condom you kill a child so it’s horrible to use it'

perhaps if they inhale one, but other than that, it simply prevents the two haploid cells from merging into the possibility of a child.
the same as if you didn't have sex at all.
in the case of birth control, its akin to abstinence, except that abstinence is the only risk free option.

creepy but very good add.

A very good and different idea. Well executed. To the point and a great visual. Most condom ads depict a couple in bed, people on the beach, yeah that is great and all but this definetly takes a different approach. It is funny and witty. Good work!

HAhaha, definitely clever, but it could use a call to action or a bigger logo. :P

I think the ad is great, its straight to the point about condom use. If you think about it, people who use condoms are mostly afraid of having unwanted pregnancies more then STD's and this is fully aimed at that audience. Though I do understand how it can be offensive to some people how it looks like its suffocating children etc but still at the end of the day its not like a real child is being killed due to condom use so people who see this ad as a negative should really just look beyond the picture and take in the message.

This was wonderful to stumble across. And the many replies both for and against were just as entertaining to read as seeing the ad images themselves. Jaw dropped and laughing, I enjoyed it. As for the purpose of the ad, I have children of my own and love them dearly. But that didn't prevent me from appreciating the message. I fully agree that the ad focuses on those who use condoms more for pregnancy prevention than STD's. Bravo, the ad is supremely catching and all the feedback, both negative & positive, is half the experience.
