Another condom ad you'll Never EVER see in the U S of A.

(via) Reminiscent of the Catholic family scene from Monty Python's "The Meaning Of Life," this 2006 Durex spot via Croatia got straight to the fucking point of why to use a fucking condom. This practical anti-life prophylactic ad strategy is employed the world over, including Argentina, Brazil, New Zealand, India—pretty much everywhere but here: in Christian Amuurka. That's because we're fucking idiots.

this was not a real campaign. it was a spoof spot made for magdalena advertising festival by a young director. later a big agency b&z bought it and claimed they made it, entering it into a croatian advertising festival. after it won, there was a big hoopla and the award was revoked. so, no, in a very catholic croatia, this was never aired either:)

Thanks. I had seen it before, a couple of years ago, but didn't know its history.

So what Croatia is catholic? That means people don't get to have enough sex* in their lives to give birth to so many children or is it perhaps that the Catholic church is against condoms?

At least if you follow the Orthodox guidelines, you'll get to have perhaps 10 to 20 sex night a year at best (there are two loong lents, then all Wednesdays and Fridays are lent days, then Saturday night is prohibited because is the Sunday eve and on Sunday - guess what - it's Lord's day so you don't get to fuck either, then you need to count in several other more natural factors like lack of libido, working late etc. and here you are - 10 to 20 times a year :)) )! I don't know about Catholics but I assume it's kind of the same.

muritor, id like to smoke whatever is you`re smoking. the issue isnt the choice of religion rather the climate of a country (in moral sense). also, being of a certain faith doesnt mean u will completely obey all its rules. no need to be so literate. catholics in croatia are just as depraved as any member or any other religion. however, the climate where the church thinks it is ok to comment politics, meddle into every aspect of life because the government allows it to etc dictates the media liberty in some way - mainly that companies and agencies censor themselves before it even reaches the waves. so, durex never made this and never aired it.

Haha, Anonymous, I was ironic. Of course Croatians, just like Romanians, do not obey every of the church's rules.

You said something about the church meddling into state's affairs - the same thing happens in Romania.
