Justin Timberlake Directs 3 Horny Tequila Ads


We kind of started approving of everything Justin Timberlake does after he shed his N’Sync-era brillo pad curls and excessive denim. The upcoming ads he directed for his 901 Tequila, however, throws his infallibility back into question. Justin seems to have followed the “when in doubt, make it about sex” logic that so many endeavors fall prey to. But this time, it’s not just sex; it’s oral sex. Don’t get us wrong, every lady likes it when a nice gentleman goes to lady town, but we’re not so sure that we see the Tequila connection. Or, for that matter, that we want to have to give the very explicit instructions that the girl in Justin’s commercial seems to find necessary. Check out the two other ads after the jump!

The Daily Beast Makes Chelsea Clinton Look Vaguely Skeletal

Chelsea Clinton’s wedding is going down this weekend, complete with its $15K porta-potties. And folks can’t stop talking about her wedding dress—will it be a Vera Wang or an Oscar de la Renta? Websites, magazines, and newspapers have been fighting about this for months, while the Clinton camp hasn’t let out a murmur on the issue. And apparently, Chelsea had appointments at the studios of both designers yesterday, which isn’t helping the speculation die down. The Daily Beast has a big article today about the debate and in it, they’ve pasted Chelsea’s head atop of gowns by both designers. But, uh, they totally made her into a bobblehead! Seriously, this is some bad Photoshopping. Couldn’t they have figured out the right head and body proportions not to make her look so skeletal? Are anyone’s arms really that thin? And do you care which designer’s dress she is wearing? Either way, I’m sure it will be gorgeous and uber-pricey. [Daily Beast, PopEater] Keep reading »

The Devil Dog-Lover Wears Prada: Saks Fifth Avenue To Sell Plus-Size Clothes

High fashion is usually a skinny woman’s game (which is not so surprising when you consider the 15-year-old girls stomping designer looks down the runways). But Saks Fifth Avenue is taking a bold step to be inclusive to all women by beginning to sell plus sizes. The flagship department store in New York City will soon offer high-end clothes by Chanel, Fendi, Yves St. Laurent and other designers up to at least size 14; depending on the designer, some clothes will be available up to size 20. Huh. I didn’t even know companies like Chanel made bigger sizes. Did Saks make this decision out of the goodness of its heart? Or was it a financial decision? I would imagine in a bad economy, when $7,000 skirts aren’t flying off hangers, Saks decided to broaden their clientele. But, hey, I won’t look a gift horse in the mouth, especially if the company brings this new size-conscious model to stores around the country at a future date. [Racked] Keep reading »

Does This Butchered Woman Make You Want To Go Shopping?

Honestly, I’m all for some controversy in advertising. In a dog-eat-dog market, sometimes the most effective way to win a market share is by creating the most provocative campaign. But it’s got to do its job. You can’t just be shocking for the sake of being shocking, or else you end up failing in your mission to move product and waste your marketing dollars. When it comes to this ad for Beymen Blender, a pop-up store in Istanbul, Turkey, one could say it’s misogynist, offensive, or a series of other criticisms, yet what if you take it to the bottom line: Does seeing this chopped-up, butchered woman hanging from meat hooks make you want to go buy clothes? I can’t parse it if I try. She’s naked so … I should cover myself up? Or someone will chop me up? The tag line reads: “The concept store with a butcher shop.” Is that literal? Like, it’s literally a clothing store that has a butcher shop, too? But if so, why the massacred lady? I am flummoxed. [Copyranter] Keep reading »

I Have Migraines

Last year, I was on vacation in Berlin when I woke up at 4 a.m., unable to move. Searing pain began at the crown of my head and extended well below my shoulders, causing my head, face, and neck to clench up and spasm whether I tried to move or lie perfectly still. The most extreme combination of tension and aching I’d ever experienced, I managed to nudge my partner awake and whispered, “Drugs. Find a doctor.” We had to be on a plane in seven hours, and I was in the midst of a horrific migraine. Keep reading »
