Editor's Pick

Japanese prophylactics have proved to be a fertile creative muse. A few years back, GT Tokyo created this delightful award-winning love story for Sagami ultra-thin condoms. Now, Cleveland-based Marcus Thomas has debuted a trio of funny new spots promoting Okamoto USA's 004 rubbers, which are just .004 mm thin. The low-budget ads throw the viewers deep into the act and show the drawbacks of wearing barely- there skins -- you'll have to stop thinking about sex just to keep the fun going. But it helps to have Granny, a veggies or a your disco-dancing neighbor as your wingmen.
