Adaptive traits, coupled with time-standing traditions, are what make a family…well—wholesome. 

Not everyone admired Honey Maid’s “This Is Wholesome” campaign, which featured happy families enjoying the brand’s traditional graham products. Comments like “horrible” and “disgusting” surfaced via social media as audiences responded to scenes, which included a gay couple affectionately raising their baby. Standing firm in its message, Honey Maid quickly adapted to criticism by launching a warm-hearted response. Instead of shrinking in PR defeat, Honey Maid succeeded in showing that all a family needs to truly be wholesome is “Love.”

Just when we thought couples couldn’t get any closer, Japanese condom brand, Condomania, shows us they can. The advertisements aptly titled, “Flesh Love,” feature images captured by Japanese photographer, Hal, who photographed over 100 couples inside plastic bags, with the air vacuumed out. He constructed the set with vacuum-sealed backs in his very own kitchen. Hal moves quickly, as he only has 10 seconds to catch the photo before the couple begins to lose their breath.

Coca-Cola’s “Share Happiness” campaign lets consumers share a Coke easily. Drinkers can split the 330ml cans into two tiny 115ml cans. Double the happiness with one can.

The soda master worked with Ogilvy & Mather Singapore and France to create this innovative and possibly, health conscious experiment. The mini soda cans limit the intake of sugar per can and provides an alternative to full-sized carbonated beverages. These cans are available in limited quantities only in Singapore.

Popular Vancouver attraction, Science World at TELUS World of Science, is the one-stop destination for people to experience tons of educational (and fun!) activities. In 2011, Science World received a massive $35-million renovation, adding 30,000 square feet and energy-efficient initiatives. To highlight all they have to offer, Science World launched an ad campaign to get the public excited about science. Their outdoor ads display interesting facts (that most of us didn’t know), a captivating photo to match, the Science World logo, and the tagline “We can explain.” The facts are sure to shock some people; of course, in hopes to drive them to Science World to learn more.
