Gossip Girl Ads Really Do Imply The F-Word

Last night when we were walking home, we came across a wall of posters advertising the return of Gossip Girl. Guess that…

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…

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]…

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.

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…

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,…

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]…

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…

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 o…

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…

The Daily Squeeze: Playing Dead, Pain Control, Puppies, And Pills

Male spiders who play dead double their chances of getting lucky, according to a study in Behavioral Ecology. The spiders studied all tried attracting partners by offering food held in their mouths, but the ones who laid flat and motionless were in a better position for sex, literally. This is the first time researchers have…

Made For A Woman, But Gentle And Anti-Aunty Flo Enough For A Man

Seasonique, the birth control pill that makes women menstruate only four times a year, is being marketed to men. Ads have appeared in laddie magazine Maxim, which is known for its frat-bro attitude and bikini clad spreads, and Spike TV, the channel dedicated to a Late Night Strip Poll. Apparently, the execs marketing Seasonique think…

eHarmony: The Video Game

Just looking at those lovey-dovey eHarmony commercials, where couples joke about their "connection", would make any single gal feel like her love life is dialup while her relationship counterparts have DSL. But apparently the spinster club has more in common with joy stick jockeys than we ever knew. A new ad for Electronic Arts Burnout…
