GALLERY 11: Durex - Square

In McCann-Erickson Manchester's Durex spot, Danny Kleinman creates a horde of human sperm eager to rush forward at the object of our protagonist's affection - a nervous looking girl. Fortunately a giant condom is at hand to trap the eager spermatozoa. Aimed at the most at-risk age group (16-24), the campaign accompanies the client's sponsorship of late night film screenings at the Odeon cinema chain. The result is both a funny condom ad and a quite penetrating - ahem - insight into male sexuality.

1 Why creative people have lost their way

What better way to kick off Campaign's relaunch than with another think piece on the current failings of our industry, written by an embittered, pretentious creative who misses "the way things used to be"...
