What happens when an ad agency gets a ten-page pull out ad in a major local publication?

Someone let us buy a lot of ad space. What happened next can only be described as “advertising.” We took one of those pages and created a cutout doll for every person on staff. Nude cutouts. We took another page and created a slew of cutout clothing, toys, accessories, costumes, snacks and even some barnyard animals. We used a whole bunch of pages to create sweet blank canvas scenes in which the cutouts and accessories can be arranged. We then welcomed everyone to go totally nuts creating scenes and post them to our Facebook wall. Those cutouts are now everywhere, from our website to a couple dozen awesome lunchboxes to glued onto the door of the ladies bathroom in our office. It’s led to an incredibly precarious on-going game of “find the nude coworkers” that can be slightly, uh, alarming. Advertising should be memorable. Those nude cutouts of the staff? We pretty much guarantee that’s an image you’ll never get out of your head. And who would want to? At TQS, we’re just a bunch of people. Creative, motivated people who take too much pleasure in humiliating ourselves for the sake of our work. But out of that willingness comes work that cuts through the clutter and leaves our audience astounded and wondering what we’ll think of next. What will we think of next? There’s no way of knowing. But whether we’re advertising ourselves or advertising for others, you can be pretty darn sure it won’t get lumped in with anything else the audience has seen. Unless you regularly get nude cutouts in the mail. If so, we’re not sure we want to know what other mailing lists you’ve ended up on.
