The Smell Of Innocence Is Totally Inappropriate

Ummm, this vintage Love’s Baby Soft ad may be the most disturbing of all time. This was actually in a magazine? Target demographic … pedophiles? Holy advertising fail. [Hug Party] Keep reading »

The Daily Ovulation: Meet The Cutie Underneath Mini Darth Vader’s Mask


I gotta admit, I was kind of hoping that a little girl was beneath the mini Darth Vader costume in the Volkswagon Passat commercial that aired during the Super Bowl. It would just have been rad to find out the little badass was female, but alas, it was not meant to be. On “Today,” 6-year-old Max Page was unmasked as the adorable cutie donning the black suit and wielding the power of the force and I don’t begrudge him this new fame in the slightest. May the force be with you, Max! And safe-driving! [MSNBC] Keep reading »

Elisabetta Canalis In Her, Err, Roberto Cavalli’s, Undies

George Clooney‘s girlfriend, Elisabetta Canalis, looks pretty darn smokin’ in this new Roberto Cavalli underwear ad, her second for the designer. “For my new underwear collection I chose Elisabetta again.

Pretzel Crisps Strikes Again With New Ad Campaign

Remember a few months ago, when Pretzel Crisps debuted their “new look” with ads touting that “you can never be too thin”? And then remember how they pulled those ads after the blogosphere flamed the company for using pro-anorexia language to cheekily sell their product? Well, Pretzel Crisps has a new ad campaign and the company seems to have changed its tune and is now thumbing its nose at critics. “We’re thin and stacked so lose the old bag,” the ad campaign’s slogan, plays upon an offensive trifecta — you can never be too thin, too busty, or too young. Weak. My hummus shall miss using you as a vehicle, Pretzel Crisps. [The Gloss] Keep reading »

According To This Video, Flying Virgin Atlantic Is Like Tripping On Hallucinogens

Here is the video for Virgin Atlantic’s new global campaign and I have three things to say: 1) I am terrified of flying; 2) I have never done drugs; 3) but I imagine tripping looks something like this, which is just about the worst thing I could imagine while flying. Giant dancing forks, a flight attendant whose chest magically opens up and gives birth to another flight attendant, and drowning in a martini glass aren’t quite my cup of tea.

Trekkies Have Heavy Flow Days Too

Little Lost Dinosaur In The Lingerie Ad

At first glance, this ad for lingerie company Fayreform looks like standard model-in-a-sexy-outfit fare. But look again! Who’s that creeping underneath that chair? Could it be … the tiniest TYRANNOSAURUS REX in the world? [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »
