Body-altered ads exist for the purpose of conveying a strong point as quickly as possible. With condom ads that display a woman's ripped mouth and another ad featuring multi-limbed little ones for children's clothing, emotion is conveyed quickly and clearly.

Implications - Advertising like this immediately stands out from the crowd, and as a result, is not easily ignored by consumers. Companies that don't shy away from the shocking or the visceral can oftentimes create a far more provocative and pervasive marketing message. If done in the right context, this can be a valuable method for communicating a business message.
