Ad Nut: Work worth a look (for better or worse)

Ad Nut scurries around the internet looking for notable new advertising (good or bad). Because Ad Nut loves you. This week: Asus, Tiffany, Huggies, AIA, Baileys, Nike, Royal Caribbean, Newcastle, Ikea and Land Rover, plus a very special travel agent video and an ad banned in the UK for being overly sexual.

Ad Nut gathers ads from anywhere about anything—the ones that Campaign Asia-Pacific's super-serious, super-busy editors won't or can't cover (because the ads have nothing to do with Asia or the editors don't have the time or are simply feeling grumpy). Once a week, Ad Nut presents the latest collection here for your viewing pleasure, without much comment (Ad Nut is just a woodland rodent, after all).
