Can I Have Cookies With That Milk?
A South Korean ad agency created an Oreo cookie advertisement using a baby breastfeeding with the tagline, Milkâ€™s Favourite Cookie. The plan was to never let it be seen. Which is why when it was leaked online, it raised such a stink. Like a dirty diaper.
The photo of the infant holding a cookie while drinking milk from his mom was, if I can be so bold, a clever idea. It’s a bit risque but a cute picture nonetheless.
It’s Milk and Cookies! Who doesn’t love Oreos and milk?? Granted that kid’s probably not on solids yet and there’s no handy container for dunking, but hey, that’s freaking cute!!
Kraft Foods is embarrassed though. They are stating that it was never meant to be viewed. Frankly, I think this was a smarter ad than they’ve had in a long time. I’ve certainly seen enough Macaroni & Cheese ads.
What do you think about this ad? If you saw this in a magazine or billboard would it offend you? Or would you want to buy Oreos?
