Sexually Explicit Double Entendre

In the sexually repressed North American nation where I reside, alcohol advertisements can not make claims that one’s sexual attractiveness or performance will be heightened by the selection of the correct beer, wine or spirit.
Apparently, Japan has no such controls. Witness this Ogilvy Japan ad for Corona:

In case you missed it, the copy says, “Grind it in deeper.”

About David Burn

I wrote my first ad for a political candidate when I was 17 years old. She won her race and I felt the seductive power of advertising for the first time. Today—after working for seven agencies in five states—I am now head of brand strategy and creative direction at Bonehook in Portland, Oregon.
