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] Keep reading »

Does Your Baby Have A Case Of The Number Threes?


Sure, you’ve heard of doing a “number one” or a “number two,” but did you know that babies also occasionally do a “number three”? According to this Australian ad for BabyLove diapers, “poop explosions” require a special kind of swaddling. Eww. I am going to email this to my newly pregnant friend now. [Ad Freak] Keep reading »

Vanilla Ice Hawks Beer In South Africa


I’m not exactly proud of it, but there was a time in my life when the mere mention of the name Vanilla Ice would make my pulse quicken. That time was 1990, when I wore out my cassette of To The Extreme. A few years later, Vanilla was a musical footnote who made the perfect subject for a tearjerker episode of “Behind The Music.” I respected him a few years back when he broke out with his hardcore band and gave us an angstier version of “Ice Ice Baby.” But now, Vanilla has cropped up in this beer commercial in South Africa. This makes me very sad—I mean, he’s even reverted back to his M.C. Hammer-wannabe style, complete with sequins. Well, at least he’s not doing vanilla ice cream ads? Breyers, you’ll have to pay me for that idea. [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »

These Pants Are Apparently Totes Humpable


It took me a little while to figure out what the hell was going on in this ad for German clothing company Van Rosen, but now I get it! This guy and this girl are getting it on, but then he gets a phone call. So, while he is detained, she humps his pants, because they are just that sexy, and then later on, after she’s left, he gets to smell them. Hot? [Copyranter] Keep reading »

Thanks For The Band Recommendation, Target!

Earlier this week, I was watching “Gossip Girl,” and during a commercial break, an ad for Target came on. I’m not really sure what the Bullseye was promoting though, because all I could focus on were the words being sung in the background. “One day I woke up, and there was more to love…” I quickly jotted down a few lines from the lyrics, then turned to my computer and Googled the phrases. A couple minutes later, after scrolling through a page or two of search results, I found what I was looking for: “More to Luv” by Minnutes. Keep reading »

HOTmilk Lingerie Sexes Up Hot Mamas

I’ve got a soft spot for this lingerie commercial for New Zealand-based brand HOTmilk (I know, unfortunate name). The sexy line of underthings is targeted at pregnant women and is about “empowering women, to remind them that they are beautiful confident and SEXY,” even when their stomachs are stretched to epic proportions and their nipples are leaking. While I agree with Broadsheet that we should be celebrating the beauty of the pregnant female form through other means than expensive lingerie, I think it’s refreshing to see a sexy commercial where a woman’s swollen belly is on full display and a hot sexy man is losing his s**t over it.

Vintage Sex Ed: Caught In The Act

It’s hard to believe it’s been over 20 years since I suffered through awkward sex-ed videos of swimming, talking sperm and dancing ovaries in junior high. Feeling a little nostalgic, I did a search for “vintage sex ed” on YouTube this morning and found this gem from the ’70s. Poor Ricky! Not only does his mom walk in on him at the most inopportune time, she proceeds to ruin any chance he might have to “feel good” in the future. Then again, as her voice plays back at the end, it’s hard not to wonder if maybe she didn’t just give him more fodder for the job… Keep reading »

Nick Symmonds’ Naked Nike Ad

Just in time for hump day, we found this sexy vid for an afternoon delight: track star Nick Symmonds getting naked for Nike. OK, so I totally have a thing for men in their little running shorts, but these marketing experts have proven that even less than that is more. Belle and Sebastian are right: Stars of track and field are beautiful people. [WOW]

Doofy Husbands In Commercials Are Really, Really, Really Dumb

“Thank God us wifeys are around to take care of our doofy husbands, or else they’d kill the entire family over a bowl of popcorn!” We love you, Sarah Haskins! Keep reading »

Britney Puts Candies On Your “Radar”

Britney Spears first debuted her manufactured makeover in an ad for Candie’s shoes. Standing next to yummy desserts and a pink polo-ed prince charming, Brit-Brit’s “Barbie” look is admittedly better than, well, being bald. Now Candie’s has released a new commercial featuring Britney. In it, Britney keeps up the Barbie fairytale, eyeing a polo-playing prepster who will hopefully fall for her because of her rockin’ Candie’s shoes. In true Britney style, she follows her man around a mansion singing a Britney exclusive, “Radar.” Is it just me or does the song sound oddly similar to “Womanizer?” [via Jezebel] Keep reading »
