Pee Like A Man!

God, I love foreign advertisements. This is for the “Whiz Biz” a product made by an Australian company “whose products give women the freedom to wee anywhere a man could.” It’s not nearly as phallic as the Shenis (link NSFW) and it comes in hot pink. They really know how to market urine technology to the ladies. [Via Gawker] Keep reading »

Gossip Girl Ads Go For Text Speak

Check out the new print ad for Gossip Girl. I’m not entirely convinced this particular one is real, because I saw a similar version in my Us Weekly yesterday that only said “OMG” not “OMFG”, but whatever, I can’t find that one online. And this one has CHUCK, who’s hot. [Jossip] Keep reading »

Vintage Lingerie Ads Were Kinda Cute And Cheeky

Woody Allen Beats Off American Apparel

American Apparel is known for perverse ads which feature their scantily dressed female employees. Although, CEO Dov Charney has already been sued by some of his former employees, he believes in equal opportunity, or so he said in a deposition tape, “I frequently drop my pants to show people my new product.” Vomit. But now someone with a little more to his name is suing American Apparel. Woody Allen, who was featured in a few ads in 2007, including a billboard in New York City, is suing the company for using his image. If you’re afraid to see Woody bent over wearing nothing but a neon g-string and some tube socks, fear not, the ad is actually just of his face — a shot of him dressed up like a Hasidic Jew from his classic romantic comedy Annie Hall. According to our friend Nachshon, who translated, the ad’s slogan reads in Yiddish, “The Holy Rebbie,” which essentially means Woody Allen is Dov Charney’s perv hero. Allen isn’t honored, and just slapped American Apparel with a $10 million dollar lawsuit. While Charney might get away with the ads by calling them “parodies”, it’s comical that someone found a way to make Woody Allen feel violated. [Ad Week]

Underalls To the Rescue!


I totally love ads for various feminine products, whether it be yeast infection creams, douche, or undergarments — they can be either so stone-cold serious or cheekily hysterical. Like this ad from the ’70s for Underalls, an old school pantyhose/undie combo, which shows an animated Underall eraser flying through the air, wiping the visible panty lines from womens’ rear ends. Sounds better than thongs. [YouTube via ] Keep reading »

Fly Girl Too Sexy

The U.K.’s daily newspaper, The Sun, proudly runs a bare-breasted model every day called the Page 3 Girl. A brainchild of media mogul Rupert Murdoch, it’s been a topless tradition since the fitting date of 1969 and the magazine’s sales rose 40% in a year. As we all know, sex sells. Ryan Air, a budget European airline, was also hoping to bank on sex appeal with a new ad for spring breakers that featured a model dressed in midriff revealing schoolgirl uniform. Unfortunately, the totally safe for work ad has raised libidos and concerns from the British Advertising Standards Agency. Ryan Air, who has had a whopping nine ads banned, tops the ASA’s list of offensive advertisers. The agency claims this ad inappropriately sexualizes underage schoolgirls, but oh baby, baby, didn’t Britney Spears already do that a decade ago? A spokesperson for Ryan Air released a statement giving the ASA the proverbial middle finger and refused to withdraw any of their ads. [Brand Republic via Jezebel] Keep reading »

The Ultimate Care…Down There

We’ve established this already, but commercials in the U.K. rule. This one, for some British brand of tampons, is no exception. Normally we’re not into calling our vaginas by anything associated with food, animals, or plant life, but this beav is awfully cute. [You Tube] Keep reading »

Food Fight Foreplay

Supermarket commercials usually advertise fresh food, but this one for the U.K.’s MySupermarket.com is all about the fresh clients. In the funny ad, a British hottie starts a sexy/gross food fight after seeing his wife bent over the refrigerator. Let’s just say, it begins by asking “How low can you go?” and then ends with sausage. [Ad Week]

FCC Forbidden Fruit

The inventors of the tongue kiss have done it again! A new TV ad from the Association de Producteurs des Fruits, featuring a variety of fruit and positions, is so sexy, it makes The L Word look like they don’t show enough nipple. Juicy, fresh, and raw, the ad is the number two hit on the industry website Firebrand.com. And it is a tasty choice, so you may want to avoid sharing it at work and save it for dessert.

Artsy Condom Ads

It’s hard to believe that such an artsy and intelligent-looking illustration (above) is an Italian ad for Durex, especially when you learn that the same company has also used foul and degrading imagery to advertise its products. We like our condom ads the way we like our men: classy, not crass.

If you’re into computer games and contraception, play Durex’s “Egg Invaders,” where you “protect your egg from hordes of rampaging sperm eager to get their pointy teeth into your jelly!” Sadly, it only works on PCs. [EternallyCool.net and Durex] Keep reading »
