OMG … this is great.
Do you look at print ads and wonder about the photos sometimes?
Now … I admit that in my case a lot of this is probably about the striking women in the ads. But, I’m also fascinated by the images in ads sometimes: over the years I’ve collected quite a few because I find the imagery interesting: sunsets, beaches, animals, buildings, women.
The thing is … you can’t usually find print ads online. Instead you have to clip them and scan them if you like.
Now there’s a site called moat.com that gathers ad imagery by brand. Here’s an example: this page gathers all the ads for a product called Force Factor. If you read news sites, you’re probably familiar with it: it’s typically at the top, features either an attractive woman or a buff older guy, and mentions testosterone. Go ahead and look: when I did I saw literally dozens of images that seemed familiar to me from opening up stuff like The Drudge Report.
You can try it yourself for other common brands, like Calvin Klein, NFL, or the DNC and RNC.
UPDATE: I JUST NOTICED THAT THIS SITE HAS A BUTTON TO SHOW YOU A NEW PAGE FROM A “RANDOM BRAND”. EVEN COOLER.
