Blog: Congestion likely as Reebok launches new ad

Joe Ayling | 6 August 2010

Reebok's latest training shoe advert is causing quite a stir in British tabloids this week, as passing drivers slow down to take a look.

The huge billboard stars pin-up girl Kelly Brook wearing nothing but a pair of Reebok Easytone trainers.

At first the campaign attracted a spree of exposure, so to speak, as passers by and local snappers flooded to see the grand launch. Brook unveiled the first advert herself, appearing in aerobics gear and looking as if the Easytones were really doing the trick.

As the story develops though, the obvious driving hazards of splashing a horizontal, and basically naked, model across 40-foot billboards on the side of the road becomes apparent.

The Easytone concept has been Reebok's trump card in recent years, but will need to extend into more than just shoes for marketing reasons alone at this rate.

Naked Kelly Brook posters blasted as 'deadly distraction for drivers'
