Today I was watching TV and I was amazed by this new product,not because of the miracles of it,but of the look-a-like to the Umbrella's famous product,the T-Virus.

Even the comercial was exactly the same!!! :eek:

Are you sure that wasn't just someone messing with the video or something?

And not a fan of Avon though. Shiseido is the best for skin but still way to pricey for a lot of people. But then even Age Defying from Covergirl is phenominal all the same. What can we learn from this story? Never trust a commercial until you've tried it yourself. If you wind up turning into a zombie after using Avon's product, you be sure to tell us so we can buy some alternative. ;)

I saw this on TV,you can found information on the official web of Avon and in the whole internet.I would like to think that this is to sell more the product,but why to asociate the product with a virus?Is kinda crazy.

Edit:I didn't realize that the one I inserted was a fan made,but now i fixed it and putted the original.And isn't even more creepy?

That's funny. You have to wonder whether it's coincidence or whether someone on the design team has a wicked sense of humor.

Coincidence. A blue helix is not that uncommon in marketing.

Aw, you're no fun. I was having a good time imagining some closet gamer pulling a fast one. :D

irjudd
31-08-09, 19:22
You're right, it probably is. After all these sorts of things usually involve a boring old guy in a suit from marketing contacting a graphic design firm full of hipsters, so the possibility is definitely there. :D

It caught your attention, no ?

Now everybody here knows and talks about it, no ?

Guess who wins now ? ;)

31-08-09, 19:35
Lol, it does look strikingly similar. I think it is probably a coincidence, I doubt Avon would want their product to be associated with a biological virus!
BTW, in the games the T-virus is green. :p

robm_2007
31-08-09, 19:37
i so saw that commercial on tv earlier this year, and thought the exact same thing! :D

It's funny, too, because Umbrella also developed a creme that would revive dead skin cells to rejuvinate the face, making it look naturally younger.


BTW, in the games the T-virus is green. :p

but in the movies, it is blue and the AntiVirus is green. At least since in the movies, it has the helix design to it; i dont think its a helix looking thing in the games. it was probably just green liquid.

Shadycroft,I am not an Avon seller,I don't win nothing here.And yes,the thread is open for people to leave their opinions.
You are quiet smart,really.

ShadyCroft
31-08-09, 20:30
^^thank you !

but when I asked who would win, I meant the company who made the product. The more you make your product more eye catching, the more it'll get publicized, the more it'll go around, be seen more by people.

And the more people who sees your product, the higher the probability of buyers.

But I'm sure most (if not all) of you realize this. :)

Shadycroft,I am not an Avon seller,I don't win nothing here.And yes,the thread is open for people to leave their opinions.

And that's why i said that those who doesn't want beauty products are the real winners. Having enough reasons to stand for themselves without needing this kind of products is a victory. Was realy a basic need to fight for? Shady's post can be read like: "A goal for advertising is catching attention. OP felt interested in the add because of RE references. Advertisement goal (kinda) succeeded.".

That doesn't make you an Avon seller, Evan, and i humbly think that is "quite smart" not "quiet smart" unless you want to say that his intelligence is "quiet", wich is an actual insult (like if the other way wasn't an actual sarcasm anyways).

Like i said in the Spanish version of this thread: even those who doesn't know what RE is (women doesn't have to), the design is appealing (double helix resembles to DNA, and DNA references always sounds kinda futuristic).

You're right :), but then again how many of the gazillion products you see on tv you actually buy ?
Its not so that you would definitely buy it. I'll quote my post.

but when I asked who would win, I meant the company who made the product. The more you make your product more eye catching, the more it'll get publicized, the more it'll go around, be seen more by people.

And the more people who sees your product, the higher the probability of buyers.

more appealing look and more advertising ----> more viewers ----> higher probability of higher sales.
True, not ever single person who sees the commercial is gonna buy it, but from the thousands of countries who see the product and commercial, a few are bound to be interested, no ? :)

I'm always prepared.

AVON Supported by the Umbrella Company

Oh dude, that is some freaky **** :|

YES! At last! The age of zombie outbreak is upon us! Have you prepared (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Zombie_Survival_Guide) yourself?!!! :D

I'm always prepared:

1. Organise before they rise
2. They feel no fear, why should you?
3. Use your head: cut off theirs.
4. Blades don't need reloading
5. Ideal protection = tight clothes, short hair.
6. Get up the staircase, then destroy it.
7. Get out of the car, get onto the bike (I'm screwed, because I can neither drive nor ride a bike.)
8. Keep moving, keep low, keep quiet, keep alert!
9. No place is safe, only safer.
10. The zombie may be gone, but the threat will live on.

I've got my plans for all four classes of outbreak and how I'll go for one from the other.

Warning: Author may or may not be excited at prospect of zombpocalypse.

Freaky co-inky-dink!

The commercials aren't the same... I don't see a similarity. :p

I like Avon. They don't test on animals. Don't know about the other one though, and to be honest the ad seems creepy. When that woman's eyes turn blue and her skin cracks, lol! :p And dead skin cells shouldn't be brought to life, they should be exfoliated to allow new ones to form! XD

If they was to make somthing like the t-virus or "rengerate" dont you think you'd have to be alive for it to be able to repair dead cells and the whole thing to travel around inside your body?

If your dead then liquids stop flowing around in your body dont they?

or is that only after a certain amount of time after your dead?

Plus i dont think if you break the bottle it could actually be air born but hey its not real so nothing to worry about.

Go read The Zombie Survival Guide. I imagine the T-Virus would be similar to the Solanum virus after it mutated (but it depends if you're going for the movie or game angle on this) in that it can take up to 23 hours for an infection to reanimate a corpse.

"Solanum works by traveling through the bloodstream, from the initial point of entry to the brain... the virus uses the cells of the frontal lobe for replication... during this period, all bodily functions cease... infected subject is rendered "dead". The brain ... remains alive but dormant, while the virus mutates the cells into a completely new organ... most critical trait of this new organ is its independence from oxygen ... Some bodily functions remain constant (such as the need to feed {sic}), others operate at a modified capacity, and the remainder shut down completely."

- The Zombie Survival Guide, Solanum: The Virus, page 2

Unless someone wants to wiki that **** and correct me on the properties of the T-Virus I'm just gonna assume it's the same as Solanum.

Plus viruses generally change and adapt to suit their environments. Or like Solanum and the T-Virus, they change the environment to suit the virus itself.

I have thought about this kind of thing way too much, if you hadn't already noticed :P
