Attention, germaphobes. Here are your worst nightmares realized.
Unilver cleaning brand Domestos is out with three new print and poster ads in the U.K. that vividly imagine microorganisms as gross cartoons on vacations—swimming, snapping selfies, sipping cocktails on the beach (yes, that's duck face).
The "Holiday's over" tagline is a little long on bravado, but the illustrations—created by Bangkok CGI studio Illusion, via agency British agency DLKW Lowe—might be the most gorgeously disgusting visuals ever (even if Harvey Keitel's credits apparently include voicing one of their millions of impressively hideous dead ancestors).
Now enjoy your righteous sense of horror, and go and wash your hands.
