Airbag Gum from Lotte Confectionery

Lotte Confectionery in South Korea presents its caffeinated gum as the way to stay alive on the road. A driver’s gum becomes the airbag in his car. “It wakes you, it saves you. No drowsiness gum.” There is some similarity with the Bazooka Gum Airbag print ad from Belgium, though the concept of safety is more developed here.
