96 Blood Breakthroughs

From Crime Scene Cushions to Surgical Tooth Ads

— June 15, 2010 — Fashion
It's no surprise that vampires have been the new craze, starting with Buffy, but more recently with True Blood, Twilight and The Vampire Diaries.

If you have a thirst for the red stuff, check out these horrifyingly unique blood breakthroughs, from bloody ballerina shoots to surgical tooth ads to crime scene cushions.

Implications - Businesses that aren't afraid to get a little bit dirty with macabre imagery have the unique opportunity to tap into a major cultural fascination. Like it or not, vampiric and zombie imagery have recently captured the vivid imagination of our pop culture zeitgeist, and with that realization comes the ability to cash in in a big way.
