Growing up, my parents were so anti-advertising that they made us mute the volume and cover the TV with a scarf during commercials. And look at me now! Rounding up the best and worst commercials shown during the Super Bowl. How far I’ve come… … READ MORE »

Meet Megan and Matt. They’re the stars of the newest Weight Watchers commercial featuring Jennifer Hudson. And they are a terrible couple. Megan plays the role of the nagging wife to a T — to the point where every time I watch this commercial (which is a lot lately because we are working from home… READ MORE »

Oh, Europeans. Here’s a new commercial from Hyundai Netherlands for their Sante Fe vehicle. The ad is creepily called “Upskirt” and definitely pushes the boundaries of what you can do to sell cars here in the United States. The premise is about as unoriginal as any other car commercial: sexy ladies swooning over a new… READ MORE »

Every time I see a person wearing a cool pair of frames they seem to be from Warby Parker. Warby Parker prices all if its frames for $95 a pair, including lenses, and for every pair they sell, they donate one to a person in need. They’ve finally debuted their collage-themed first TV commercial and… READ MORE »

Dear EducationConnection.com,

On March 15 of this year, I wrote you a letter in reference to your commercial featuring Corn Dog Girl, wherein I raised many questions and concerns. Those questions still remain unanswered. But I am still hopeful for your response.

Onto the real reason I’m writing. In paragraph two… READ MORE »

I do appreciate the convenience of having a personal toilet nearby at all times, but toilet bikes just seem a little excessive. Japanese toilet manufacturer TOTO introduced the latest in motorcycle/toilet technology with their “Toilet Bike Neo.”

The eco-friendly motorcycle, with a built-in custom toilet, runs on bio-fuel from animal “discharge” or “waste… READ MORE »

Axe hits a new low in advertising with this commercial starring a headless pair of boobs on legs, supposedly representing the office crush. Yup, the love interest in this commercial is just a pair of tits. A Cousin Itt-inspired walking head of hair — meant to represent, ha ha, “what girls see first” on a… READ MORE »

Ashton Kutcher is in trouble. Again. The “Two and a Half Men” star recently filmed an ad for PopChips which spoofed online dating. In the ad, Kutcher dons “brown face” to play an Indian man, amongst other characters. The ad sparked immediate controversy when it was unleashed on the web yesterday, with many critics saying… READ MORE »

Today in Awkward Diplomatic Kerfluffles: the entire country of Ukraine is pissed at the entire country of The Netherlands for airing a commercial that implies sexy, sexy Ukrainian women are a bunch of husband-stealing sexpots. The ad was made by a Dutch energy company called NLE and references the Euro 2012 soccer games, which will… READ MORE »

That wasn’t the beginning of a pervy joke. What drain cleaner and double penetration have in common is this Liquid Plumber Double Impact commercial. I think this might be the most pornographic advertisement I’ve ever seen. “Snake your drain.” “Flush your pipe.” Wow. Oh, and the double entendre-laden Barry White-esque voiceover just takes it to… READ MORE »

Dear Education Connection.com Commercial (feat. Corn Dog Girl) ,

How are you so bad, yet have managed to embed yourself so deeply in my consciousness? Sometimes I wake up singing you in the middle of the night. The only other commercial that’s ever affected me in this way was the IO Digital CableREAD MORE »

Guys, I don’t know if you’ve seen Luv’s “Poop There It Is” (actual commercial name) spot. It’s been out for a long while, and every time it comes on the TV, I gag just a little bit. Yes, it’s just an animated spot, but it’s an animated spot featuring a POOPING CONTEST. How is this… READ MORE »

What can we say about Cosmopolitan today that wasn’t true about Cosmopolitan in the past? According to the very first commercial that promoted the magazine brand in the UK, not much.

The 1972 commercial, unearthed by Copyranter, features a number of women talking to men. Specifically, the men are asking women how they managed to pull off things like… READ MORE »

I have no business watching a scrotum itch commercial, much less one in Japanese. But I don’t regret the minutes of my life I’ll never get back after watching this on repeat. There’s itching. There’s singing. There’s dancing (sort of). Why can’t Vagisil commercials be this funny? (I mean, outside of “Saturday Night Live.”) [Copyranter]… READ MORE »

Ann Markley is hardly an “America’s Next Top Model” all-star. Even though she was completely stunning and the judges kept commenting on her incredible potential, she kind of sucked at the competition. Instead of rising to the top of the pack, she became a cranky nag, always picking at eventual winner Eva Pigford. But I… READ MORE »

George Clooney has said that he is terrible at marriage and didn’t plan to ever do it again after getting divorced from Talia Balsam in 1993. But he apparently wasn’t afraid to do it for pretend. In this ad for a Norwegian bank, a woman wakes up from a rough night in a posh… READ MORE »

I do a lot of grumping and grousing here at The Frisky. But when companies do something awesome, I like to give credit where credit is due. K-Y jelly has some new commercials going on the air in September for it’s K-Y Intense lube and one of them features a lesbian couple. (They’re… READ MORE »
