I know it sounds bizarre, but trust me on this one: this new Hot Pockets spot, featuring Kate Upton and Snoop Dogg, is a must-watch. Set to a Pockets-themed version of Biz Markie’s “Just a Friend,” it’s trippy, weirdly charming, and of course makes Hot Pockets look waaaaay more delicious than they have ever been and ever will be.

Wonderful Pistachios have really stepped up their ad game in what seems like an exorbitantly expensive way. I mean, they’ve landed Snoop Dogg, Homer and Bart Simpson, Psy at the height of his awful-moment-in-pop-culture fame, even the Prancercise lady … I had no idea there was so much money in pistachios. This latest video star also couldn’t have come cheap, but how they got Dennis Rodman is just not one of the questions I have about this clip. No, there are so many more, like why they thought it would be a good idea to feature a green-haired Rodman being obliterated via red button by a doppelgänger for his close pal Kim Jong Un. So many questions, and not one of them is whether or not I’d like to go buy Wonderful Pistachios right now.

It’s no coincidence that I’ve never had a touch of dropsy, gout or scurvy. I’m a coffee addict. This coffee ad from 1652, thought to be the first, extols the Vertue of the magical COFFEE Drink. You might not have known that in addition to preventing dropsy, gout and scurvy, COFFEE also quickens the Spirits, makes the Heart Lightsome, supresseth Fumes, prevents Mis-carryings in Child-bearing Women and makes one fit for Business. Don’t I know it! See the full transcript of the ad after the jump. [Buzzfeed]

I’m not sure what to think of this advertising scheme by Superette, a store in Australia and New Zealand. They put these stamps on park benches and mall seats, with the idea that women in short skirts and shorts would sit and have the ad imprinted on the back of their thighs. Part of me thinks this is super creative and kind of funny; but the other part would be pretty pissed if I looked down and realized that I had an ad pressed into my gams. Plus, the store says the imprints last up to an hour. Eek! What do you think of this? [Ads of the World] Keep reading »
