Hm, I don't love them persay but i think they catch my eye more than a standard old ad about a faucet. So I say YAY! :)

Tia said...

I don't like the first one, but I think the rest are pretty bad ass!! I mean, bad ass as far as faucet ads go.

LENORENEVERMORE said...

I always want that rain showers...spa experience is what we need daily!

Melanie's Randomness said...

hmmm...these ads are definitely one of the ones where if you didn't know they were Kohler you'd have to spend a few thinking. The last one is kinda funny. It's like she's looking around for anyone so she can secretly go to the bathroom on the toilet. LOL!

Laura Trevey said...

Too funny! I actually picked out some Kohler faucets today for the 3rd floor renovation!!!

Love the 2nd ad :)

Iva said...

I say YAY to all of them but the first...I dont know, I showers are super and the colors are great just not 100% on the gold outfits. maybe that could be tweaked just a bit...otherwise super fab!!! Hope you have a great day lovely drollgirl!!! WOOHOOO Monday is BEHIND!! YUP YUP YUP....clearly I'm all giddy about it! LOL

Diane said...

the last one does look like she's thinking 'oh man... i really gotta go!!!' lol

Emily said...

YAY. with a slogan like "the bold look of kohler" they are duty bound to bring some drama.

Kellie said...

Cheesy? Yes. But they get your attention and that is what they are meant to do. So I'd say yay.

bananas. said...

Hmmm...

The first one's a little too gay but the rest are okay.

I just bought a kohler faucet and think i'm a bad ass for it so i may be bias.

Alisa said...

I like that they use different designers. They are often bazaar, but unique!

Tracie said...

I say 'yay'. They are eye-catching.

Cafe Fashionista said...

The second one makes me think of "Bride Wars." The fourth one makes me think of "Romancing the Stone." The last one makes me think of "Casablanca." I'm kind of in love with these adverts!! :)

SabinePsynopsis said...

How surreal. The first one strikes me as a mixture of vampire, lady gaga and dancing on ice. But very artistic!

Teresa said...

I say "hell yay." Point for making the mundane interesting...

Gabby said...

I say yay, because they are so fantastical...but not sure I'm more apt to buy Kohler. So maybe that's a nay? Whatevs, I like them! :)

Chic 'n Cheap Living said...

Gotta admit they're pretty darn interesting (the first one is bleh though). I mean fighter pilot and sink? At least it makes you look.

Phoenix said...

I would give it a solid yay for making something like ads for sinks and plumbing actually artistic, beautiful, and interesting.

Nothing wrong with that in this Ikea-laden world.

Farah said...

Some of them are freaky looking but hey, at least they are kinda creative! right?

Down and Out Chic said...

i'm going to say nay, but i have very low tolerance for advertising period...

freeteyme said...

very creative!!! I'd say yay!

chloe said...

am i the only one who doesn't get it?
the only one i kinda like is the one with the bridesmaids(?) but still, why? why are they fighting at the sink? why is there a faucet in the fighter jet? why are the explorers studying a sink in the jungle?
..maybe im thinking too much..

Kitty Stampede said...

There is something that just doesn't jive with me...like they are trying too hard or something..i dunno. the first one cracked me up though..in a retarted kind of way..hehe.

Ela said...

I dunnno bout you, but that's totes what I do in my shower.

Happy Choos-day!

See the train...choo...get it? BAHAHAHAHHAHA. Ok, I'm going now.

Caroline said...

Brilliant!

Asylum Dolly said...

I actually like the last 4 !

E said...

Ok, I'm glad you posted these because I do not, DO NOT understand them, at all. The last one, in particular - is she meeting her long lost love toilet?

alissa said...

someone really tell me who needs that many shower heads. the first one is crazy. i think id feel like im drowning

Pretty Little World said...

I wonder if someone told that poor girl that she can't fly her plane with a faucet. I guess she'll figure it out sooner or later though.

Heather Taylor said...

No, some just look blatantly photoshopped like the sink in the forest with the explorers photo.

Kathryn said...

They are not something I would display on a wall, but I say yay because they serve their intended purpose - they make you take a second and even a third or fourth look because they are chopped together and your mind says "something is out of place" when you see it and you stop to try to figure out what that "something" is.

Kristin said...

The bridesmaids are cracking me up!

Diana said...

I say yay. I mean, what other ad has a woman packing up her toilet??

Kierstin Bridger said...

bloody brilliant

Kierstin Bridger said...

Jennifer DeDonato said...

The adverts are absolutely perfect. The photos are made in such way that every detail counts and you just can't stop looking at them. Beautiful!
