How in the world are we supposed to recognize Georges Michaël, here?

Is Autun an anti gay mosquito spray? Plus, no link with the copy and Georges Michael wasn't even born, let alone famous, in 1958.

I rarely say it, but this campaign is pure utter crap.

Associate explained it: it's about repelling mosquitoes SINCE 1958. So Elvis is the "old" times when product was being sold. George Michael is the more recent times. It's a tad confusing. Maybe if there was one more image or two, it won't be so hard to get.

Absolutely bizarre. George Michael is a Mosquito? Huh?
Does this have anything to do with mosquitos carrying disease?
Are they saying that if G.M. was a mosquito he would be a disease carrier and you can keep him away with Autan?
Or did the the creatives have a dislike for G.M.? I do not know...

Stinker of an ad.
