A growing problem

5 Mar

Do you feel self-conscious about your errant ear and nose hairs?

How about now?

These posters from Tondeo Mini Trimmer cut right to the chase, and I like it.

The funniest part – even funnier than the branches – is his blank, glassy-eyed stare. It reminds me of guys on school picture day: a collared shirt, too much hair product, and the perfect rendition of a deer caught in the headlights.

On a side note: thefreedictionary.com informs me that “errant” can also mean “wandering in search of adventure.” I’d love to see an artist’s rendition of a tenacious young ear or nose hair leaving the nest in search of action and adventure.

    Hey, that’s kinda gross. But I can’t stop looking.

    I totally agree. Those nose-branches are especially mesmerizing 😉

    Awesome! I think I’ve seen a few people in Victoria that could use a Tondeo Mini Trimmer

    I’ve seen a few of them myself.

    I have to be honest though, I think neck-beards are currently a bigger blight on the city.

    I’d love to take a weed wacker to these ads.

    I can appreciate the weed wacker sentiment. I wonder what Edward Scissorhands would do with them? (I see a flamingo topiary)

    Love how the artist has used the natural vines in the environment. I wonder if he created the piece specifically for this spot? I love the intentionality of that.

    That’s an interesting idea Kristin. I hadn’t thought of the posters being created with the specific spots or vine-clusters in mind. That would be a funny conversation: “well, these vines I found looked more like nose hairs than ear hairs…”

    That’s really creative! I wish more Advertisers would be this creative, they’d probably earn a lot more respect.

    Hi there! This is kind of off topic but I need
    some help from an established blog. Is it hard to set up your own blog?
    I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast.
    I’m thinking about creating my own but I’m not sure where to begin. Do you have any ideas or suggestions?
    Many thanks
