Diesel’s “Be Stupid” Ads Banned In Britain

Some of Diesel‘s ever-annoying “Be Stupid” campaign posters have been banned in Britain for fear that they’ll inspire bad behavior in local kiddies. Frankly, we’re spitefully pleased to see the campaign — which reminds us that “stupid is the best idea smart ever had” (whaa?) — cut down a bit. The entire campaign wasn’t removed, but a take-down notice has been mandated for some of the racier, dumber images, like a girl flashing a security camera and displaying side boob. Also under fire is an ad featuring a woman photographing her private parts while walking through tall grass in her underwear as a hungry-looking lion lurks. Sorry Diesel, but this is what you get for being morons. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »

Miu Miu Inspired By Jodie Foster’s “Taxi Driver” Look?

Is it just us, or do the models in Miu Miu’s Resort 2011 campaign look suspiciously like teenage hookers? We’re a little bit in love with the shoes, but the whole mommy’s makeup, too-much-jewelry, Jodie Foster in “Taxi Driver” thing makes us feel a little awkward. [Fashion Copious] Keep reading »

Vintage Shop Reminds Us That Their Stock Is Old, Dead People Clothes

Next time you’re jonesing for a vintage fix but can’t quite find that perfect floral house dress, take heart in the new ads for London’s Shock and Roll vintage shops.

So yes, that perfect silk dress may be walking around on a grandma right now, but give it a few weeks and it could be in your closet. [Copyranter] Keep reading »

If You Shop At Harvey Nichols, You Just Might Lose Your Head

Copyranter has baffled us again with a new, bizarre ad campaign. This one is from the UK department store Harvey Nichols. In the ads, color-coordinated women’s outfits go shopping for the proper heads to go with them. But what does it all mean? The tag line reads: “Who will be the lucky ones?” Does this indicate that at Harvey Nichols, the clothes shop for you, and not the other way around? Or does it mean you’re likely to lose your head at this sale? I remain confused, but I feel confident the sight of a headless woman and a whole heck of a lot decapitated heads are sure to get the public’s attention. [Copyranter] Keep reading »

Huggies Diaper Jeans: The (Possibly Fake) Commercial!


OK, so remember the Huggies limited-edition denim diapers we posted about last week? Turns out there’s a commercial too! It’s so ridiculous — “My diaper is full. Full of chic”?!?! — that I have a hard time believing it’s not a spoof. Or maybe it’s an ad only shown in Europe? They are more lenient about saying words like “poop” on TV across the pond.
