6 Examples of the X-Ray’ ad.

I thought it was interesting that a number of recent print ads were running with this xray/cross section look.

The applications/styles are vastly different, but it’s the same idea, tying copy with a visual mash up. Eg. marshmallow: tougher than it looks’ for smart car.

I don’t look at enough ads to pick out these micro trends’ but I’m sure this happens quite a bit. I first saw the Panadol ad when I was popping a number of painkillers after getting my wisdom teeth out. Now when I have a Panadol I imagine I’m sending in soldiers to nuke my headache…

Edit (13th/11): Vegetables are all your body needs (more x ray)
