A few years ago I was at the local movie theatre when I saw a big advertisement for the movie  푸시 (Push).  Needless to say, I immediately changed my ticket for one to that show!

Here is the video that used the "Energizing Persimmon" and "Romantic Mushroom" taglines.

Classic example of not being able to polish a turd. Look at all that snazzy production. It almost makes the gist of the ad seem a little less ridiculous.

Haha, I remember actually going to see that. I was quite disappointed when it turned out to be about some sort of mutant superhero time travellers or something.

The thing is, this kind of rubbish looks absolutely risible to us, but will go down a storm in Thailand/Indonesia/Cambodia etc. Has anyone ever been on the Bangkok metro? Some of the most annoying ads I've ever seen in my life (played on video screens at full volume!). SE Asian ads make Korean advertising look like a Lars von Trier film.

That food ad campaign is so bad. Lol at the website: hello america let's talk about product of korea. Ok but mushrooms, milk, strawberries, apples, coffee, etc are not "korean". I am pretty sure the rest of the world knows about these things. What was the point of this?



Couldn't resist...

That is probably one of the worst Photoshop jobs that I've seen in a long time.

The left arm... man...
