Bradley Cooper Shills A Wonder Pill That Will Improve Your Life 200 Percent

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 for his new movie, “Limitless,” in which he stars alongside Robert De Niro and Abbie Cornish. I appreciate the authenticity of the spoof, from the background music to the random shots of Bradley swimming in the ocean. Keep reading »

Kevin Bacon Plays The President Of His Fan Club In New Commercial

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 probably a tie between all of them. ” Keep reading »

Our 4 Favorite Conan O’Brien Commercials

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, picks out thread at a market, and washes fabric in a river—all to make the perfect red curtains for the set of his new show. Hmmm, I wonder what lengths he went to for his interview couch?

After the jump, more great Conan commercials. Keep reading »

Snickers Goes In A Different Direction This Halloween

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] Keep reading »

Bras On Roller Coasters? Someone’s Got A Fetish For It

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] Keep reading »

What’s Your “Stomach Face” Up To This Weekend?


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] Keep reading »

Art School Students Contemplate Nude Male Model

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 find out what they’re really talking about. [Copyranter] Keep reading »

How Do You Feel About Old Navy’s Booty Reader?


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 who predicts your future and doles out cards. Only, this time around, the fortune teller is played by one of those Old Navy mannequins, and if you bend over and stick your butt in her face, she issues proclamations about your jeans-clad butt like, “Those Sweetheart jeans make your booty smile from cheek to cheek.” That prompts all the other mannequins to start talking about their smiling booties and “happy booties.” Frankly, I don’t even really get what happens at the end, other than the Booty Reader falls over, I think from being overwhelmed by all the booty talk. When I watch something like this, I always wonder how much the company spent to make it — like, a million bucks, maybe, to come up with the concept? And how many meetings took place in which a group of serious-faced ad people considered all the different ways butts could be discussed in this commercial, including the “happy booty” idea? My butt is frowning over these questions. Update: Racked notes you can upload a photo of your butt to Old Navy’s Booty Reader website for a “booty reading” to find out what jeans are best for your derriere. It’s like American Apparel’s butt contest! Except, you know, not. Keep reading »

Martin Scorsese Is Directing Chanel’s New Commercial

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 calling it that — airs in September, but we’re having fun imagining what it will look like now. Because Scorsese is known for gorgeous but rough movies, like “Gangs of New York” and “The Aviator,” we can’t imagine this Chanel commercial will be standard, pretty fare.

The Old Spice Guy Sent Me A HOT Personal Videogram

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, he is “visually pleasurable.” Anyway! Our beloved intern Kelli found this video today in which, yes, the Old Spice guy recorded a special video message just for me. Hey, ladies? Don’t be jealous. Wait, no, go ahead and be jealous. Thanks, Isaiah! XOXO! [YouTube] Keep reading »
