K-Swiss Should Keep It Real

Sex sells. But what about purity? A K-Swiss ad campaign features tennis star Anna Kournikova in a white sports bra and a teeny-tiny mini skirt, showing off her midriff like a high school ho. Now that they’ve got your attention with some T&A, what’s the slogan say? “Keep It Pure.” Um, what?! While we’re sure that Anna Kournikova is a lady, when there’s a billboard of her rolling around on her back on the tennis court, chastity doesn’t come to mind. And why should it? We’re not sure why K-Swiss is trying to sell sneakers with abstinence — something that even their cover girl Kournikova, who has been doing the horizontal mambo with Enrique Iglesias for years, doesn’t represent. And everyone knows, like a modern woman, it’s impossible for white sneakers to not get a little dirty. Keep reading »

    Girl Crush Alert! Audrey Tautou

    I have loved Audrey Tautou ever since she put that spoon to her nose in Amelie. Now she is the face of Chanel No. 5 perfume, replacing Nicole Kidman. This ad is flipping hot. Any woman that is cool enough to pull off a suit and tie is sexy to me. But this begs the question: Why have most of my “Girl Crush Alert!” choices been French?

    Sexified Schweppes Ad

    Apparently everything is sexier in France. In this ad, Schweppes has managed to make its drinks, or at least this particular drinker of its drinks, so hot and bothered that she rolls fruit all over her naked body. Doesn’t it make you want to sip a fruit-flavored soda? No? Yeah, me neither. [via Shape+Colour]

    Gossip Girl Ads Get Parents Hot And Bothered

    We knew it wouldn’t take long before someone complained about the OMFG ads for Gossip Girl — only it’s not the implied curse words that has got the Parents Television Council pissed off. The ads feature “cleavage kissing”, which the PTC considers inappropriate marketing for teens 12-17. Gotta say, there are far more worrisome messages being sent on Gossip Girl (like encouraging shallow consumerism!) that I’m not so sure I’d be psyched about my impressionable teen watching the show. Gossip Girl is for adults, darnit! [WND.com] Keep reading »

    Annoyance Of The Day: Facebook Wedding Ads

    If your status on Facebook is “engaged”, you get inundated with various bridal and wedding B.S. on your profile page. As if you need a reminder that you’re supposed to be planning a friggin’ wedding, not adding “tanning, indoor gardening, and mac ‘n’ cheese” to your interests. Ugh. Keep reading »

    Goodyear’s Golden Girl

    Just like good tires, you can get a lot of smooth rides out of a good woman. Well, that’s what Goodyear’s new Italian ad is claiming. A silver fox, wearing nothing but a mink stole and a “come hither” smile, poses like a pin-up next to the slogan, “The only thing in your truck that never gets old.” We basically want to grow up to be her.
