If you think about it, condom ads must be toughest ones to create. After all, there are only so many times that you can repeat the steamy sex scenes for the advert.

This ad from Kenya was a bit controversial. Actually it might not have been this ad per se; condom ads in general have been surrounded by scandal in the country. It wasn’t so much because of the content. No, no, it was because of the usual “condom = wanna do it more” argument.

Well, this ad doesn’t make fun of the shampoo. But does tell you how shiny smooth hair can have its downfalls… for the guy!
