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 be hosted by the Ukraine. (On a side note, any other Americans find it utterly impossible to keep Europoeans and their various soccer tournaments straight?!) The ad shows a woman Googling the words “Ukrainian women” and coming up with images of super sexy hot Ukrainian ladies. She then immediately goes and purchases an at-home beer tap, presumably so her husband will stay on his couch and not leave her for some random blonde chick in the Ukraine during a soccer match. Ukraine is now pissy that the commercial will affect tourism during the Euro 2012 games. Keep reading »

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 another level. I don’t think unclogging my drain will ever be the same again. [WOW]

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 Cable campaign. I can still rap the number: 877-353-4448. I think I will go to my grave being able to rap the number. Jingles really stick with me, although they hardly ever encourage me to buy or use, which I believe is their intended purpose. Keep reading »

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 okay? Not only that, but it’s a pooping contest performed to a bastardized version of Tag Team’s “Whoomp, There It Is.” The pooping babies are being judged based on how big their poops are! How gross is that?

Cosmo‘s Very First TV Ad Was Kind Of Sexist

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 affording nice cars and cooking delicious meals (things women totally couldn’t do at all in the 70s, or something), and the women respond with a page from Cosmpolitan. Then a male announcer says that women can learn all sorts of things from Cosmopolitan. Things about men. Read more and watch the video here…
