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…

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 nipple…

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…

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 Sebastia…

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!

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…

Do The Tampax Dance!

Okay, so this is never the way I feel when I have my period, regardless of what menstrual product I’m using. But I gotta give Tampax credit for this super cute commercial.

What Tastes Better: A-Holes Or B-Holes?

North Carolina does not like A-holes … or B-holes. Several NC media companies have their panties in a twist over a new Hardee’s ad and are refusing to run the hilarious/suggestive ad which asks whether people prefer the taste of A-holes or B-holes. But get your mind out of the butt-er. (Ha!) I’m…

Durex Condom Wrappers Inspire Sexy Time

Does seeing a used condom wrapper instantly make you want to hop in the sack? Well, Durex thinks so. In a new commercial for their rubbers, the company encourages people of all ages and sexual orientations to bump it out. One couple starts the trouble when their Durex condom wrapper flies out the…

Christian Bale: From Pac-Man To Batman

Before he was Patrick Bateman, or Batman, or that questionably unsexy temper tantrum throwing douche that we know and love, Christian Bale had a thing for Pac-Man shaped cereal. Luckily he was adorable back then, so posting this ’80s commercial probably won’t make him mad. [Copyranter]…

Latisse Saves Brooke Shields From Inadequate Eyelashes

Have you seen that commercial with Brooke Shields hawking that new prescription eyelash cream? Poor Brooke! First she waited until she was 22 to have sex because she felt fat or too tall or whatever, then she had the postpartum depression, and now we learn how she’s endured unthinkable life-long trauma because of…

Brad Pitt Is Sumo Wrestler’s Bitch In Japanese Ad

In April, Brad Pitt taped a commercial with a sumo wrestler, and now it’s out. Brad plays the assistant to a sumo wrestler in this Spike Jonze-directed ad for Japanese SoftBank, a telecommunications company. We think the commercial is probably trying to say, “We’ll support you no matter what, even if we have…

My Period Is Not A Natural Disaster, Thank You Very Much

Yesterday, as I was flipping through People, I came across an advertisement that scared me to death. What was it marketing? Feminine hygiene products, of course. Because, I mean, what could be scarier than a period?! The Always Infinity ad features a dangerous tornado-like whirlpool swirling ominously into a gigantic maxi pad. A pad that,…

Nice Legs, Joe Namath!

Now that we’re all going bare-legged, it’s extra funny to see football great Joe Namath in a pair of pantyhose. This commercial is a classic. But, seriously, Joe, you got a great lookin’ set of gams. Enjoy the leg show — and your Memorial Day — ladies!

Mac Gets A Girlfriend

We had long wondered what kind of girl the personification of a Mac computer would go for — and now we know. A new commercial pits Mac (Justin Long) against PC (John Hodgman) as they try to win a woman’s attention. Since it’s a Mac commercial, Mac wins. Who is this mystery lady?

Anne Hathaway Gets Dirty At The Box

Anne Hathaway is the celebrity star of Lancôme’s new commercial for Magnifique perfume, but the location is the real star. The ad was filmed at The Box, New York City’s infamous cabaret. A man whispers to Anne, who goes onstage and performs a sensual scarf dance. Compared to what really goes on at…

A White Castle Ad For Furry Lovers

Fast food commercials continue to get raunchier and raunchier. Arby’s “me likey” commercial was kind of funny because it alluded to sex but didn’t actually involve any. The sex-talking Quizno’s oven was kind of creepy because it brought sex and fast food closer together. Now, White Castle’s Pulled Pork Sandwich grosses us out.

Awkward Erectile Dysfunction Commercials Might Disappear From TV

Representative Jim Moran has a problem with erectile dysfunction. We’re not sure whether he suffers from ED, but he doesn’t like those TV ads for Viagra and Cialis. Last month, this Virginia democrat introduced a bill that would prohibit any ED ads from airing on broadcast radio and TV between 6 a.m. and 10 p.m.

We’re Overdosing On Audrey Tautou And Chanel

Not only is Audrey Tautou playing Coco Chanel in the new biopic “Coco Avant Chanel,” but she’s also the face of the Chanel No. 5 perfume. The luxury brand has released a short film commercial starring Audrey and directed by the man behind “Amélie,” Jean-Pierre Jeunet. The film has a similar feeling to…
