Jockstrap: A Maid Service For The Ladies

Our buddy Copyranter spotted this excellent ad for Jockstrap Maid Service. I’m going to go out on a limb and guess that what you get for the money is a dude in a thong who wanders around your apartment pretending to clean. Santa, can I get this one in my stocking? [Copyranter] … More »


Judith Light Loves Her Cream Filling

My roommates make me watch “Ugly Betty.” But maybe it’s not such torture after all — now that the season is over until Jan. 6, I kinda miss it. It’s a Christmas miracle that Everything Is Terrible posted this vintage vid of Claire Meade, er, Judith Light getting down on a Twinkie. Now, we’re… More »


Sex Lube Advertising Fail

I had to stare at this lube ad (see a larger version here) for a long time before I FINALLY understood it. So, this chick, her pooper hurts so bad from unlubed action that she can’t/won’t sit down, despite there being tons of available seats. As well as being gross, this ad is just way… More »


Julianne Moore Gets Naked For Bulgari

How Julianne Moore lolling around nude sells Bulgari, I don’t know, but it is very pretty. [Fashion Copious]

Update: Apparently this isn’t from the Bulgari campaign. It’s a shot from Michael Thompson’s 2003 Vanity Fair photo shoot. Oopies! … More »


Has Feminism Gone Too Far?

You know, I understand there was a time in history when the word “feminism” meant something. Women fought to win equal rights. And some 50 years later, great strides have been made. Recently, it seems like old-school feminism has returned. This time around, though, it seems like all the political action is gone,… More »


Funky Or Fugly?

I’m not sure which is less attractive — this “funky” bedazzled jean jacket (for dudes!) or the models dirtied face/faux stubble. [Vintage Ads] … More »


Can My Vanilla Make Out With Your Chocolate?

Our buddy Copyranter points us to this freakishly erotic ad for Italy’s Zaini milk chocolate. Why, it’s almost … pornographic. If you’re into food porn, that is. Vanilla is really tonguing the hell out of chocolate, no? I don’t know if this makes me want to eat a chocolate bar. Oddly, I think it does. More »


Ice Cream Company Attempts To Sell Ice Cream With Weird, Melting Lady Stuff

Apparently? There’s such a thing as designer ice cream? Kapiti sells ice cream for the “discerning” set (one imagines that if you consume Ben & Jerry’s, you are not discerning), and to hawk their fancy-pants ice cream to the vagina-endowed among us, they created a series of ads featuring lady stuff melting. You know? Like… More »


Michael Bay Gives Victoria’s Secret The Action Movie Treatment

Michael Bay, the director behind SUPER EXPLOSIVE action films “Transformers,” “Pearl Harbor,” and “Armageddon,” directed this brand-new Victoria’s Secret commercial. There’s lots of wind and rolling around and gap-mouthed-ness and then, of course, a fiery blast. One question — where’s Ben Affleck? [via ONTD] … More »


Vintage Christmas Commericals: Lucky Strike

Nothing says “Happy Holidays” like a carton of smokes, especially when it’s designed with Christmas greens and pine combs. So seasonal! As you can see in this black-and-white commercial, a carton of Lucky Strikes looks “bright!” and “colorful!” under the tree and is sure to please any smoker with good taste. After all, it… More »


Last Licks: Grandmas Goin’ At It

In this video, some silver foxes show that with age comes experience. These ballsy broads have their dirty way with ice cream cones all for Science World. Basically, this ad sums up the reason Viagra was invented, folks. And I thought my grandma was willing to put it all out there … [Trend Hunter]… More »


Why Is Zooey Deschanel Shilling For Absolut Vodka?

Before today, I thought Zooey Deschanel was the perfect example of how stars can appear in ads without looking like sellouts. Her collaboration with eye wear manufacturer Oliver Peoples made sense, and the song she wrote about cotton, “the fabric of our lives,” was good enough for me to listen to at times besides when… More »


Hanes Gives ‘Em What They Want—No More Itchy Labels!

The worst is when you got an itch you can’t scratch. You know, one of those ones in the butt area or anywhere in the nether region sphere. A lot of the time the fault is due to pesky underwear labels that make it feel like you have god-knows-what up against your crack. Hanes now… More »


When Ya Gotta Go …

A series of new VW ads show male and female mannequins dressed in “soiled” denim. Looks like someone had a fashion emergency … [FashionIndie.com] … More »


A Condom Ad That Makes You Want To Say No

The idea of this Condomi condom ad is that these fruit-flavored condoms are so tasty, you may be tempted to take a bite. I do not feel this campaign would make men rush out to buy them. Not men who want to keep their johnsons, anyway. [The Awl] … More »


“Hit The Bitch” Web Campaign Is Actually Anti-Domestic Violence, Got It?

Finding new, exciting, and creative ways to tell men that they shouldn’t hit women is tough, ain’t it? Which is probably why a Danish anti-domestic violence group came up with this ill-advised “Hit The Bitch” web campaign, in which users are encouraged to repeatedly punch a woman’s face until, eventually, they’re admonished for being “100%… More »


Will Cough Drops Find The Inner Cougar In Any Mom?

Don’t you just wish Don Draper would step out of the TV screen and teach some advertisers a thing or two? This weird cougar mom ad for Halls cough drops (cough drops?!) is a case in point. It gets your attention, but the cougar mom/cough drops connection just doesn’t make any sense. And… More »


George Clooney Dies, Returns To Life

A-list Hollywood actors do cheesy ads abroad for mega-bucks, hoping no one in America will see them. Too late, George! In this spot for Nespresso espresso, Clooney, who plays an espresso drinker, hangs out with John Malkovich, who plays God, natch. The surreal spot was directed by Robert Rodriguez, who directed “Spy Kids” and… More »


Psst. Did You Know Your Boobs Can Talk?

I was laying about, minding my own business this weekend, when this commercial for Reebok EasyTone sneakers appeared on my TV screen. In it, a woman’s breasts A) speak, and B) discuss her butt. I mean, WTF? I had no idea A) boobs could talk, and B) boobs felt competitive towards other body… More »


Amelia Earhart—The New Sexy Style Icon?

For Hermès’ fall/winter catalog, the high-fashion house has created an Amelia Earhart-themed spread for its Jean Paul Gaultier-designed collection. Inspired by the new movie? Or just coincidence? In any case, the image of Amelia has been brought back—the aviation record breaker, that is, and not our lovely site editor (although she is super stylish, too). More »
