Agency Network: 
April 2011

Goal: People perceived Tulipan as a brand with an excellent communication but not as a safe condom. We had to demonstrate that the condoms were safe and of maximum quality.
Solution: We made the first interactive condoms postcard and placed it in the most famous pubs and discos of Buenos Aires so that people could test Tulipan’s quality and safety.
Results: We ended a long time installed prejudice, changing people’s perception and consequently raising the frequency of usage and the sales of Tulipan condoms.

Print advertisment created by Y&R, Argentina for Tulipan, within the category: Health.

Remove the condom to know the difference between using it or not.

What does a smashed up room has to do with sex? People break shit when the screw? Expensive living.

That's the beauty of this campaign. Initially, you think the mess was caused by people having (wild) sex. But then, once you remove the condom, you realize the culprit is a little kid :). That's how I see it. Love it!

I get the message, but you missed my point. Does sex destroy rooms? Train bang? Not sure who was getting screwed here might have been the room. Considering how bad it looks, it can seem like domestic violence took place. And the kid was in the middle of this whole thing.

Don't like the colors makes this depressing rather than exciting and funny.

Instead of sitting down he should be tearing off wallpaper.

And the purpose of this ad has nothing to do with image.


Werd man kids and condoms getting old, how about we focus on divorce rates and stds

because therefore it is

I think it's clever and funny! I suppose people with kids may have doubts, but for singles who wouldn't like a surprise, it's a damn good postcard!

Me quedó clarísimo: "Los niños son un DESASTRE, por eso VENDEN condones Tulipan".
