http://www.ramondelafuente.com I love this French Contrex commercial. It is one is the best ads that I've seen so far: the Contrex's exercise bike campaign. It needs the audiences to pedal the exercise bikes and a giant neon light man appears on the wall. This neon light man then strips when they pedal; the more they pedal, the more he strips until he is totally naked but a board written "Bravo, vous avez dépensé 2000 calories" strategically covers his private part...
Sex is necessary to have children. Men and women both love looking at the naked body. A naked body from the beginning of the video, like Michelangelo's David, would have been non-sexual, non-playful and no reason to pedal. A man who is obnoxious in sexuality would also have ended the exercise. A playful man who is respectful of boundaries/modesty brought joy to women who were hopeful that the man would be light hearted. Am I wrong?
She is buddy because I am not a weak person that comprises my values and sucks up to women. I have pride and tell it like it is. If you can't handle the truth and your feelings are so hurt go cry about it Oprah or Dr. Phil. :) By the way, I could care less if women objectify men. It happens often and that is human nature to objectify. Both men and women do it. My point was that there is a double standard on so many issues and a skew towards women. If you can't understand logic, fact, and reason go get treated for a mental disability.
You're like the bossy middleschool teacher who emasculates little boys and refers them to doctors prescribing them antidepressants for being aggressive, even though it is natural for a boy to be aggressive. I don't put good women (or ladies) down. I just tell it like it is for the 80% that are spoiled, lazy, opinionated, self-centered horseshit that want to dominate men in today's mainstream US. Grow up little child.
If your masculinity is only held up by putting women down then you really shouldn't be leading anyone >_>
You're like that middleschool bully that gets their self esteem from making fun of others. How old are you? Grow up :P
Bardzo oryginalny pomysł w Iława takie rowery również byłyby przydatne męski i żeński!!!
Proszę instalować takie w Iława
Very original idea in Iława such bicycles would also be useful male and female!!!
Please install so in Iława
is has to be fake. no way a light show could have been set up like that. you cant even see where the lights would turn on when theyre not lit. and this isnt a laser light show since you can see the reflection in the window signifying that it has some distance from it and the man dancing.
+sefton999 yeah when it does a close up on the man on the wall it shows it as if the light is in the same tubes that are coming out of the bike which would then mean its moving on its own to constantly form the shape of every frame of the dancing man. i dont think was is real
+George Henry - you can see the strips of neon (or LED) running from the bikes to the building before they are on, but I can't work out how the dancing man is done. At first I thought it was projected onto the building, then I saw the reflections. Any ideas?
I think it's a fair point though. It's often interesting to reverse the roles in adverts and ask what the public perception would be. A load of guys start pedaling on some fitness bikes, not sure what will happen. A female stripper depicted in neon is displayed and the guys pedal faster and faster, clearly enjoying the results of their labour... If that advert wasn't banned, I'd be amazed.
So desperate to sell water, they're picking on women wishing to get slim, and hoping they're gullible enough to think that a specific brand of bottled water will help them (or, perhaps, involve encounters with strippers).
Contrex would like you to think that the minerals in their water make it better for 'purifying' the body. What a crock of sh*t.
If we ignore the studies suggesting that anything stored in plastic is basically poison, and we ignore the fact that bottled 'mineral water' is no better for you than the tap water in most countries (UK tap water is generally higher in minerals and lower in sodium than the bottled stuff, for instance), and ignore the fact that the carbon footprint of an operation to bottle and transport millions of litres of water across continents that already have ample clean water supplies is utterly unconscionable, you're left with the only thing worth knowing about this product:
IT'S F*CKING WATER!
Why is this advert not considered an insult to women?
2000 cals counting among all the chicks together, innit?
Spinning (fast) make you burn 600 cals / hour, and you need to run 10km to burn that. I suggest to do the latter, it burns calories like hell, and it's way more fun.
(heck, I wrote 20Km, I burn 1500 or more calories running that distance)
well, its a real creative and damn funny ad....but..i dont think its a good ad....contrex is a mineral water company, but all this ad about is the bicycle, exercising, sexy musclenerd.....who care abt the water??
A really great add in my opininon because it manages to address 3 hot issues in France right now : 1/ working all together 2/ being environmentally correct 3/ getting rid of sexist concepts. And it does that in a fun and humoristic way, like "you spent 2000 cal".
And by the way, when there is an event or a big party, rather than spend tons of electricity, why not produce it on the spot, just like in the ad ? No pollution, good for the body...
