ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
Panasonic has an eye on your parental dollar in this ad for a baby monitor, posted today by Ads of the World. The creative director was Daniel Corrêa.
This is why you never put David Cronenberg in charge of your ad campaign.
Horror, thy name is baby eye.
Little Brother… is watching you
Junior has a taste for human flesh.
…and this is where he lives
BoingBoing’s RSS feed needs a ‘not mind safe’ tag *shudder*
The eye is sufficiently bloodshot, but doesn’t have enough crusty mucus to belong to an exhausted parent.
As someone whose new baby will emerge from his wife in 5 weeks or so, I laughed at this, then cried a bit, then laughed again. I think I’ll go and lie down for a bit now.
Don’t take a moment of sleep for granted… mine came exactly five weeks early. (Two, at the same time.)
Very unrealistic. That kid’s not old enough to have his eye teeth.
Meh. The eyes on this week’s Newsweek cover are creepier.
Usual dilemma for an ad creative: do I want to create an ad that will, y’know, sell more of the product, or do I want to create something eye-catching that my narrow circle of peers will coo over?
Tasty, Fish Eyeballs taste better
That’s a dangerous choking hazard. Responsible parents always cut human eyeballs into small pieces before feeding them to young children.
Kill it with fire!
He has his mother’s eyes.
I think you mean “eye”.
This looks like an ad for Doctor Who.
Baby Eye is the new Dalek.
(God I want this to happen.)
I remember an ad in a computer magazine from the 1980′s for a desktop database query system that had a similar image, of a man’s face with an eyeball in it. It still gives me bad dreams.
He has his father’s eye.
