Insane, Ballsy Move: Weatherproof Puts Obama Ad In Times Square

Clothing company Weatherproof just scored quite the plum spokesmodel: Who better to vouch for their spiffy, sporty jackets than President Obama looking handsome and rugged at The Great Wall of China? In fact, he charges much less than Linda Evangelista (actually, he costs zero dollars), and they’re so dang proud they just went ahead and… More »


PETA’s Big Oops: Michelle Isn’t Happy About Her Surprise Ad Appearance

Ooooh … looks like somebody’s in trou-ble! Although, to be honest, it seems like PETA was asking for it when they decided to go ahead about put celeb faces on their latest ad with no one’s consent. The poster, which features the slogan “Fur-Free and Fabulous!,” photoshops together a handful of stylish stars who have… More »


Clean & Clear Ad Banned For Using Makeup In “After” Photo

I had to laugh when I read about a recent ad for Johnson & Johnson’s Clean and Clear Spot Control Kit getting pulled from British television recently. When consumers complained that their skin didn’t look the actress’s in the commercial, Johnson & Johnson admitted that, get this, the actress was wearing makeup in the… More »


A Cigar Won’t Bring Out The Caveman In Your Man Anymore

Oh, pervy cigar ad, how fortunate we are that you are old, so we can laugh at you.

Red Lipstick And Leopard Print Lady doesn’t exactly look like she “needs” to be clubbed over the head and dragged to bed, though. [AdWeek] … More »


Plastic Surgery Makes The Olds Look Young

The always ingenious Copyranter points us to a couple of super-creepy ads from Canadian plastic surgeon Dr. Wayne R. Perron. In the future, you may need a walker, but, don’t worry, your face will be forever freakishly young. After the jump, check out what weirdness is in store for the dudes. … More »


Alexa Chung Adds Pepe Jeans To Her Resume

MTV might have canceled “It’s On With Alexa Chung,” but Alexa’s career is hardly on a downward spiral. She’s adding “face of Pepe Jeans” to her resume now that she’s featured, along with models Tom Guinness and Boyd Holbrook, in the brand’s Spring/Summer 2010 ad campaign. The ads are bright and airy, unlike the edgyMore »


Dude-Washing: A Marketing Strategy Aimed At Guys With Small Wieners

Tony Soprano (and mobster types everywhere) made it OK for dudes to get manicures. Diddy has become the poster boy for manscaping. And now, as if we need more proof that it’s a man’s world, a handful of “creative” entrepreneurs are doing what they can to lend masculinity to some products that have traditionally been… More »


This Is An Ad For What Now?

Redtape shoes are for men who like their women the way they like their sodas: “served chilled” from a vending machine. [via Jezebel] … More »


Subtle, Tasteful, Elegant: Mercedes

Mercedes tapped slick and sexy photographer Nick Knight, asked him to collaborate with amazing and out there designer Gareth Pugh, and bought themselves one shiny new ad campaign. Do we like? [WWD] … More »


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 »
