Reaching the acme of acne mountain.

Don't squeeze those puss-filled pimples too hard, young mountaineer. Clearex, through ad agency Y&R Interactive, Tel Aviv, placed a five meter poster ad for their acne gel on a rock wall inside Israel's most active climbing center in an effort to get in the faces of youngsters on Summer break. I don't know Hebrew, but I think the line translate as: Don't be a Zitler! Reach for Clearex. The press note from the agency claims that 8,000 teenagers per month will be exposed to this bit of Zitvertising (image via). Poll time: which creepy Ad Creep is creepiest:
• Mt Acne here.
Waxed back hair man.
human meatvertising.
Puking bathroom chicks.
fake crying baby.
airplane wingvertising.
luggage carousel woman.

Meanwhile on the other side of the miles long 'separation wall', euphemistically called 'security fence', highly stressed out Palestinian teenagers use what Mother Nature has blessed them with...the more natural home remedies of apple cider vinegar, or packs of carefully mashed honey and apples.

What a MAD MAD puss-filled world we live in.

Nice concept but looks more like a face full of fruity pebbles.

FranCo is correct, cider vinegar kills zits, but unfortunately makes you smell like a douche...

I wonder what the rock climbing company charged to allow this ad to go up. If it were my place, I'd ask for a lot of cash knowing that some of my customers would be turned off by the idea of grabbing zits. Blech.
