Hansaplast’s ads for their new long pleasure condoms crack me up and definitely get the message across — don’t screw outdoors with your dude strapped into one of these babies, because it will make for some very hard to explain tan lines. One more, after the jump… Keep reading »

Image is everything when you’re a celeb (just ask Lindsay Lohan.) Endorsement deals are big money business, but some foreign companies don’t feel like they have to pay stars, even for an erectile dysfunction ad. Now, that’s just insult to injury! But the damage is done and hilarious, so here’s a round up of the funniest unauthorized celeb spokesmodeling from around the globe…
The Museo Tamayo in Mexico City has created some shock-advertising that has left some viewers scratching their heads and some suggesting misogyny. In the ad, a woman stands in what one can assume is the museum, her finger on her chin as if contemplating a work of art hanging on the wall in front of her. In response to whatever it is she sees, her heart is exploding out of her chest in the shape of a gory fist. Shocking? You bet. Misogynist. I’m not so sure. Jossip seems to think the violent image is woman-hating: “Because nothing says modern art like a bloody fist violently ripping out of a woman’s chest.” Copyranter, on the other hand, just thinks it’s obnoxious. So, what do you think? To find out, check out the full graphic image after the jump. Keep reading »
Behold the European beer giant’s latest ad that’s been airing all over Holland. You don’t need to speak Dutch to get the gist. The scene takes place at a couple’s new home, where the woman is giving her friends a grand tour. The situation quickly turns into a screaming contest between men and women, beer and shoes, as enormous closets of both are revealed. I don’t doubt that most women wouldn’t be stoked over a huge walk-in—it’s just that I kind of want the room full of beer as well.
Want a new look? Montreal-based beauty salon Käaz suggests that if you really want a total makeover, it would be best if you let them decapitate you first. Created by ad agency Bleublancrouge, the Canadian campaign promises to “CHANGE YOUR STYLE.” I’m not quite sure how this works, though. So, you go into the salon, you hand them your head, they do what they want with it, and when you come back, they sew your new head back on for you? The super-rolled and devil-Pixie hairstyles are questionable enough, but you’d think if they were going to throw in the plastic surgery, they’d do a better job of suturing you back up. Also, neither of these post-styled chicks looks very happy. Or maybe it’s just me, and looking like the Queen of Hearts just had her way with you is the next thing in hairstyling. Misogyny or beauty? That’s your call. [Copyranter] Keep reading »
Holy hotness, does this Calvin Klein commercial make me want to go out and buy some jeans to wear when I’m writhing around on the couch topless with a few hot models straddling me. It’s been banned in the U.S. but will, of course, be shown in way less prudish Europe. Keep reading »
Superbowl Sunday is almost here! While I’m gearing up for an exciting event featuring men wrestling each other in tight pants, there is another kind of sexual objectification to keep score of during the commercials. Sure, there is guaranteed to be beer commercial after beer commercial with slutty wenches using their sex to sell a brew, why can’t there be a few ads featuring hot dudes selling gals like me stuff? After all, 37.7 million women are watching!
What’s this ad really about? You tell me. Copyranter reports this ad campaign was created for the German edition of Men’s Health magazine. Both of the ads feature young women exercising to the point of sweaty, dejected exhaustion. In one ad, the woman leans over the handlebars of her bicycle, out of breath. In the other ad, the woman sits on her stationary bicycle, wiped out. The ad copy reads: “IT’S ALL ABOUT MEN.” Copyranter opines: “While it’s certainly not clear, the message of the campaign appears to be ‘that’s right babes, you keep exercising you little patooties off…for us men.’” It’s hard to argue with that position. One of the female commenters chimes in: “The only reason I exercise is so I can get laid.” I’d say she’s the truthteller. What do you think? Is this misogynist marketing or the face of reality?

Oh PETA. Always gettin’ themselves banned. Above, the commercial that WON’T run during the Superbowl, which features scantily clad women getting horny with some vegetables. Because apparently, “studies show, vegetarians have better sex.” Is that true? Anyway, I don’t really see what’s SO super hot about it, but it does continue PETA’s trend of objectifying women in order to push their don’t eat meat agenda. Whatevs. It did kind of make me want a carrot stick dunked in ranch dip.
