When I think of “Natalie Portman” or “Dior,” I don’t think “epic cheesiness.” But the creative director for Nat’s Miss Dior Cherie perfume commercial had a different thought process. Yikes, this is a little embarrassing. [YouTube] … READ MORE »

I gotta admit, I was kind of hoping that a little girl was beneath the mini Darth Vader costume in the Volkswagon Passat commercial that aired during the Super Bowl. It would just have been rad to find out the little badass was female, but alas, it was not meant to be. On “Today,” READ MORE »

A commercial for Yves Saint Laurent’s Belle D’Opium fragrance has been banned in the U.K. because the ad supposedly shows models “simulating drug use.” The Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) “therefore concluded it was irresponsible and unacceptable for broadcast.” In the ad (above), the character of “Belle” runs her finger down her arm and the… READ MORE »

It took me four viewings of this Latisse commercial to believe it actually starred Claire Danes, and not just a Claire look-alike. “Oh how the mighty have fallen,” I thought. “Wasn’t she once one of the most promising actresses of our generation? Who left ‘My So-Called Life’ for a movie career? And now she’s… READ MORE »

In this video, Bradley Cooper tries to get you to buy a pill to make you, well, awesomer. “Before, I was unmotivated, unhirable, and undatable. I was a complete and utter mess,” he says. “And then I discovered NZT and my life changed.” OK, fine, Bradley isn’t really trying to sell you this—it’s… READ MORE »

Normally, I view ads as things to be fast-forwarded past. But this one for Logitech Revue with Google TV is pretty awesome. It stars Kevin Bacon as … Kevin Bacon’s biggest fan—the president of his fan club who commissioned an oil painting of himself with Sir Bacon. Best line: “His best movie is… READ MORE »

Commercials are far from our favorite things. And yet, American Express has managed to make ones we don’t fast forward through by plucking uber-cool celebrities, like Tina Fey and Wes Anderson, and creating mini movies with them. Now, AmEx has tapped Conan O’Brien for an ad. In this spot, Conan goes to India,… READ MORE »

This Snickers commercial actually scares the crap out of me. I think I’ve seen that mask in my nightmares. And a kid popping out of an adult’s crotch? Creepy—not funny. This does not make me want to buy Snickers. Sorry. [BuzzFeed] … READ MORE »

This Ultimo Bra commercial of women testing their brassieres for “durability and lift support” on roller coasters is so strange you can’t look away. But you know some dude was whacking off to flying cleavage. Do you think they wiped the seats down afterwards? [BuzzFeed] … READ MORE »

TGIF! I’m trying to decide what to do with my stomach face this weekend. I think I’ll take it to Coney Island and then maybe out for a bite to eat. Yeah, that sounds fun. How about you? What’s your stomach face up to this weekend? [BuzzFeed] … READ MORE »

Copyranter didn’t think much of this Foot Locker commercial, but we kind of like it. We guess we’re perverted that way. A group of art students gather around a nude male model, agog, seemingly considering his wang. “Leathery!” one pronounces. “Crooked,” another offers. Way to scrutinize a guy’s masculinity. Watch the video to… READ MORE »

This morning, I saw this commercial for Old Navy jeans. In it, a row of women submit their butts to the scrutiny of … the Booty Reader. An Old Navy store has been quasi-converted into a state fair, where the aforementioned Booty Reader is like the old woman fortune teller in a glass case… READ MORE »

Apparently Karl Lagerfeld’s artsy, bizarre little romps in the land of cinema and short videos just won’t cut it when it comes to marketing Chanel’s new Bleu de Chanel men’s fragrance. The company has enlisted the help of Oscar-winning director Martin Scorsese for that task. The commercial — we feel like we’re cheapening it by… READ MORE »

So, like, a couple weeks ago, I wrote a post about the latest commercial from the Old Spice dude, otherwise known as Isaiah Mustafa. We here at The Frisky are big Mustafa fans; suffice to say, we like the way he looks in a towel. Or, as I put it in my post,… READ MORE »

No wonder our own John DeVore wants a mustache so bad; after all, the Old Spice hottie, Isaiah Mustafa, has one in this new quickie commercial. Can he please get his own TV show already? Isaiah, I mean, not DeVore. … READ MORE »

Copyranter points us to this darkly humorous commercial out of Russia for the Venus Gillette razor for women. It’s a tad difficult to decipher, but it seems the young lady chose to use a razor that didn’t shave close enough, and when her boyfriend attempts to remove her stockings … Well, suffice to… READ MORE »

Say hello to a plastic surgery commercial stirring up … controversy. But is the ad actually controversial — or not? I’m not entirely sure what the deal is, but it sounds like this commercial for Park Avenue Smart Lipo ran as an actual ad on Gawker last week. According to another sponsored post… READ MORE »

This is a new McDonald’s spot that has been running in France. It’s called “Come As You Are,” and it shows a teenage guy in a McDonald’s booth caressing his class photo while talking on the phone to a suitor. He hangs up as his dad returns to the table, and his dad begins… READ MORE »
