Tide puts stains back where they belong

Tide, the laundry detergent, was promoted in India as the product that puts stains back where they belong in this series of magazine advertisements. Post it glue was used to give the impression that lipstick, icecream and tomato sauce from a hotdog had stuck to the shirts of people on the opposite page. By the time the page was opened however the stains were back on the lipstick, icecream and hotdog.
