Pregnant? Stop lying to yourself

X-Fit Saint Laurent, body trainers in Montreal, are using pregnancy-themed print advertisements to challenge pot-bellied men to get into the gym. An ultrasound scan and a pregnancy test reveal not a baby but a beer gut. The French tagline, “Arrêtez de vous mentir”, is translated in English as “Stop lying to yourself”.

The pregnancy campaign was developed at Bleublancrouge, Montreal, by creative director Gaëtan Namouric, copywriter Guillaume Blanchet, art director Sebastien Lafaye and photographer Alain Desjeans.

  • Great poster campaign for pot-bellied men. 🙂 Some of those men look like really pregnant. Hoping that if they will see this, they will be inspired to go to the gym. Thanks for sharing.

  • I almost lol-ed. Nice concept, nice copy. =)
