Kate Moss Dreams Of Bunny Men


Who can know what motivates our unconscious desires? I mean, even supermodel Kate Moss has freaky-deaky dreams, according to fashion line Basement. In this ad for the Chilean fashion company, Moss seduces a giant bunny man and wakes up surrounded by hundreds of tiny white rabbits. As you do. [Stylelist] Keep reading »

Miss Turkey Shills For Carl’s Jr.’s Turkey Burger


Among what I’m sure are the many honors of Miss Turkey Gizem Memiç, the face of Carl’s Jr.’s turkey burger is surely on top. In Carl’s Jr.’s latest commercial, Miss Turkey shills for the fast food joint’s turkey burgers in stiletto heels, a pageant sash and a custom-made bikini with little turkey burgers printed on it. While Carl’s Jr. commercials are always gratuitously frat-tastic — boobs! fried meat! blowjob imagery! — I have to admit that bikini is pretty awesome. Congratulations, Carl’s Jr., you made a commercial that’s approaching slightly tasteful. [YouTube via Styleite] Keep reading »

Kristen Schaal Makes Us Wanna Play Video Games

 

Commercials are usually those things I fast-forward through on the DVR because they’re loud and try to get me to buy things I don’t need. However, every once in a while, there is one I love. Take, for example, this campaign for Sony Ericsson’s Experia Play smart phone, starring Kristen Schaal, totally cracks me up as Mel, the lone fan slash stalker on “Flight of the Conchords.” Message to companies: include awesome female comics in your ads, and I will consider purchasing your stuff.

Another spot, after the jump. Keep reading »

Guinness Beer Commercials Teaches Men How To Hug Without Looking Gay


Guinness beer fans the flames of homophobia with its new St. Patrick’s Day commercial with a lesson on how men can hug other men without looking … gay. (Because arching your butt backwards in an A-frame hug doesn’t draw more attention to it at all!) I know this commercial is a “joke” as far as 12-year-old-boy-humor is concerned. Alas, giving men a hard time for showing affection because they may look gay is neither funny nor original.

I mean, really: The lessons for men about maleness in this commercial are about as subtle as a piece of poster board that simply says “Lite beer = fa**ot.” Hey, Guinness, don’t steal that. [Queerty] Keep reading »

Natalie Portman’s Miss Dior Cherie Commercial Is Super-Cheesy

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] Keep reading »

The Daily Ovulation: Meet The Cutie Underneath Mini Darth Vader’s Mask


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,” 6-year-old Max Page was unmasked as the adorable cutie donning the black suit and wielding the power of the force and I don’t begrudge him this new fame in the slightest. May the force be with you, Max! And safe-driving! [MSNBC] Keep reading »
