Monkey Behavior Advertising, Just Like Human Beer Advertising, Appeals To A Male’s Penis

Anyone can make a beer ad: boobs, butts, more boobs, and an ice cold brewski. Don Draper, we have a winner! It turns out that monkey advertising is very similar to that of their two-legged ancestors: sex sells. According to New Scientist, researchers will soon study the effect of ads on monkey behavior modification. Laurie Santos, the Yale University primatologist, and Keith Olwell and Elizabeth Kiehner, two New York ad execs, plan to advertise a tasty treat to brown capuchin monkeys who live in captivity. (They will probably use JELLO.) One treat will be advertised on “billboards” inside the monkeys’ enclosure and the other won’t be; when the capuchins are presented with the desserts, the researchers want to see if the advertising had any effect. But just how does one market JELLO to monkeys? Keep reading »

Hailee Steinfeld’s The Newest Young Girl To Land A Major Fashion Campaign

Hailee Steinfeld is 14 years old. She starred in “True Grit” and she’s also now the face of Miu Miu’s newest series of ads. That’s great, I suppose, but SERIOUSLY WHY WHY WHY can’t we get some grown ass women starring in fashion ads? Style blog Fashionista lauds the campaign for its minimal use of makeup and Photoshopping. Well, you know, when you’re dealing with practically prepubescent skin, you’re not going to have that many problems, now are you? What’s next? Second grade Prada models? Toddler Thierry Mugler campaigns (somewhere in a marketing meeting someone is pitching this right now)? Miu Miu and the rest, start showing your clothes on real women — don’t condescend to us with teens, please. Keep reading »

Sketchy Or Straightforward? CoverGirl Mascara Ad Uses Fake Lashes For ‘True Volume’

CoverGirl is facing criticism for its LashBlast Volume Mascara ad starring “America’s Next Top Model” winner Nicole Fox who wears false eyelashes when the campaign promises “true volume.”

The beauty brand’s print ad features two split images of the 20-year-old Colorado native — one with long, lust-worthy lashes and the other with clumpy and short lashes — and a close-up shot of the mascara bottle and wand with the text:

“If your mascara promises volume but delivers clumps – that’s false! True volume comes from our big brush, not from big clumps. Try LastBlast Volume for yourself. You may never go “false” again.’” Keep reading »

Debate This: Advertising For Love On Facebook

Matt Simpson of Tempe, Arizona is willing to go the distance to find the woman of his dreams online. Because he finds dating sites to be overcrowded and shallow cesspools where women get bombarded, he decided to take a more original approach to increase his odds of finding love. At a cost of $0.75 a click, Matt started his own Facebook ad campaign in which he describes himself as an “active, aware 30-something seeking a balanced woman like you.” He set his campaign to target women whose profiles indicate an interest in yoga, meditation, and New Age books. You can click on his ad to be sent directly to a profile where you learn more about Matt. Keep reading »

Carl’s Jr. Goes Self-Referential In New Olivia Munn Spot

Carl’s Jr. has decided to take a different approach for their new ad campaign, rather than their usual hot girl in bikini sexily chomps on an oversized hamburger fare. Well, kind of. In this new spot, Carl’s Jr. employees state their beliefs about burgers. Things start off non-sexy, but then cue the butt shot of a model with a burger in her hand. “We believe in putting hot models in our commercials because ugly ones don’t sell burgers,” a faux employee says. Next, another one explains, “We believe in celebrity endorsements because we like to hang out with celebrities and ride water motorcycles.” Cut to Olivia Munn in a string bikini on a waterski next to Kareem Abdul Jabar. Overall, it’s pretty hilarious. Keep reading »

Sarah Silverman Is In Love With A Unicorn


Sarah Silverman has found her angel—well, at least her unicorn. In this video, she blissfully smooches and goes on dates with the Serenading Unicorn, until she sees an incriminating text. It takes a mix tape and a pack of gum for the two to tearfully reunite in a passionate makeout session. Sure, this may technically be an ad for Juicy Fruit—which is so, so delicious until it inevitably loses its flavor—but it’s still pretty awesome. [WonderWall] Keep reading »
