Drilling for oil makes us American girls hot and heavy! This Burger King commercial actually isn’t as offensive to Middle Easterners as it could be — shocking! — but it wouldn’t be a BK commercial if the women in it weren’t attractive, unthreatening airheads.
If you can stomach it, there’s a few more Burger King commercials found here and in the third spot, one of the women asks, “Do you guys drive camels to work in the morning?” and the other one asks, “Aren’t camels the ones with the humps?”

Nice ass! Do you think this butt is automatically disqualified from American Apparel’s “Best Bottom In The World” contest because it’s in a German ad for Reebok’s EasyTone sneakers? Probably.
But of course, there’s more ass-toning ass-hattery, after the jump … Keep reading »
Looking for a way to get motivated to exercise? This quirky commercial from Puma, part of their “The Games We Play” campaign, may just do it. In Michel Gondry-meets-Wes Anderson-style, a series of urban-dwelling women and men get their work-out on while showing fitness can be funky, as long as you do it to The Shag’s “Stop & Listen.” The spot is part of a series that includes golf, motorsports, and running variations. Hip and cute. We buy it. ['boards] Keep reading »
Creepy sexualization of the kiddies or a clever copycat of David Beckham‘s hot Armani underwear ad? Whether or not you think this South Korean ad for Good-Nites diapers is inappropriate, one thing is for sure: That baby has got to work on his six-pack. [Mom Logic] Keep reading »
Off-fun-sive? Hilari-sexist? Don’t mind me: I’m just trying to think up a word to describe ads that I know demean women, but I actually think are pretty funny. Take this commercial for Air New Zealand, a faux-nature documentary about “cougars” and their prey. I’d be happy if I never again heard the word “cougar,” “puma” or “cheetah” to describe a sexually active woman in her 40s—but at least these folks are tongue-in-cheek about it. What do you think?

Sorry, Burger King! Your esteemed “women wearing bikinis shaped like hamburger buns taking a shower” ad is not the klassiest ad ever—that distinction goes to this 2008 commercial which is truly the most obnoxiously sexy commercial on the planet.
Need great online bargains on appliances? I totally get that from the scads of women in an airplane, ripping their bras off and skydiving topless! Makes perfect sense. [The Sun UK] Keep reading »
Oh, pervy cigar ad, how fortunate we are that you are old, so we can laugh at you.
Red Lipstick And Leopard Print Lady doesn’t exactly look like she “needs” to be clubbed over the head and dragged to bed, though. [AdWeek] Keep reading »
File this under WTF. The intimates line K. Lynn, which has chain stores in the Middle East, has placed lingerie place mats — you know, for eating on — at cafes in the region so that otherwise fully garbed Muslim women can imagine how they would look if they were sitting down in a pair of sexy stockings and garters. I have no commentary to offer other than this is really weird. [Copyranter] Keep reading »
