    Controversial adverts

    I have been searching for controversial adverts on the net but with little luck. I found some but they are way over the top, meaning that they cross the limits of moral values ( i hope u understand what i am trying to say ). I am need of 5 adverts which sparked controversy in media but they don't necessarily have to be prominent.. but they have to be controversial, offensive, cross limits of ethics values etc..


    Guys please help me out here .. Thanks .. looking forward to your replies.

    P.S. This is for study purpose.

                          All of us have convinced ourselves that our way is the best way, our logic is the perfect logic and those who do not conform to our thinking must be criticized and steered to the right direction, our direction .............. therefore Gupshup exists.

                              Re: Controversial adverts

                              Ok guys .. thanks for replying ..

                              I found some ads but not sure if they can be called controversial. I am attaching them here.

                              The reason i am doing this all is because i have been given a project to do a research on controversial advertisements and take views of people on them .. I already got 5 people views on these ads but still need 5 more. So i need any 5 people from here to give me their views.

                              I am attaching 3 ads and some questions on which i need your answers. I hope you guys can help me out here ..

                              Advert 1

                              Advert 2

                              Advert 3

                              Here the questions:

                              Q1.
                              Is the advertisement effective enough to convey a message? If yes, what ?
                              Q2.
                              What do you feel looking at the advertisement? Do your emotions reflect any sarcasm, humor or sincerity?
                              Q3.
                              Does the advertisement make you offensive, raising any ethical questions or doubts?
                              Q4.
                              Does the ad stereotype people?
                              Q5.
                              Which group is the advertisement targeting? 1) Children 2) Male 3) Female 4) Adults.
                              Q6.
                              Are you satisfied with the quality of the advertisement?
                              Q7.
                              What conclusion do you draw from the advertisement?


                              I don't need any detail answers to these just express your view on to point...
