Couple of 10-year-olds open ad agency in Australia.


(click ad) John West's tuna & beans. Yummy. I can smell it now. Hey, Grey in Melbourne? What's really the only rule to follow when creating a food ad? Make it appetizing. Or at least, not unappetizing (image via). previously in disgusting food ads: Don't wanta Fanta. Subway presents: Jared Fogle's six-pack. Swiss Indian restaurant presents chicken carcasses fucking. Meat seasoning ads present farm animal necrophilia. French Spider-man 3 cheeseburger—with fromage cobwebs! And, Manhattan's most disgusting Gyro Posters.

I don't know how you put a positive spin on tuna and beans

You're right...but a farting Tuna is just not the answer, unless the target audience is in fact 10-year-olds.

I feel like you can't sell food by selling excretion of food. It's just isn't appetizing.

I wish there really was an agency run by 10-year-olds.

I can totally see "tuna and beans" becoming the LGBT community's new euphemism for breeder couples.

Ah, yes, I can see mothers now, picking out something good for junior's lunch, chuckling as a fart joke in the supermarket.

Know your audience, creative wankers!

i love it. i think it's actually pretty cute.

i would definitely pick out this product while laughing about the ad in the supermarket. i'd go out of my way to do so. then buy it.

I think they've nailed the aussie sense of humour, as it goes.

Works for the market, will shift product, okay execution.
