I did this ad for a company called SliceWorks, Inc. to market their version of the iconic Swiss Army Knife. I can attest that it did not work as advertised and only included four knives, one of which was actually a teaspoon. To boot, the “stylish” carrying case was really just a secondhand American Tourister bag.
This is an ad I did for DV Pigs, Inc., a hog concern in Iowa that formerly sold piglets to men desperately searching fro the perfect Valentine’s Day gift. The operation was shut down by the USDA after it was discovered the piglets being sold were actually hairless French bulldogs riddled with contagious skin parasites.
During the early 90s there was a brief fad of “alternative proteins.” The APA tried to get people to eat things like snake, raccoon, macaque, and even box turtles, which we marketed to replace turkeys. It didn’t catch on, but I do recall being invited to a Passover seder where the Z’roa, or lamb shank, was replaced with egret.
