Behold the European beer giant’s latest ad that’s been airing all over Holland. You don’t need to speak Dutch to get the gist. The scene takes place at a couple’s new home, where the woman is giving her friends a grand tour. The situation quickly turns into a screaming contest between men and women, beer and shoes, as enormous closets of both are revealed. I don’t doubt that most women wouldn’t be stoked over a huge walk-in—it’s just that I kind of want the room full of beer as well.

Last night’s episode of “The Bachelor,” and more specifically, the “After The Final Rose” special, hit close to home. After all, I was engaged, and then overnight my fiance decided he needed to go on a break, which was really him dumping me without saying so and looking like the bad guy, and I was never given the chance to fight for our relationship. It’s all good now, seriously. After much therapy and tears and internal reflection, I am doing just dandy and have definitely realized that our breakup was for the best. I suspect Melissa will come to realize this too, if she hasn’t already, and I’m sure everyone in her life is going to say things to her like, “Better now then after the wedding! Better now then after you have kids! Better now!” which is what everyone still says to me. And it’s true. YES, better now. But still, the fact that my ex, and Jason, made a decision that ultimately is better for the other person involved, doesn’t take away from the fact that they are selfish, immature, somewhat prickish d-bags. The fact that it’s better in the end for me, and for Melissa, is just luck and coincidence. It’s not a good deed. Neither wins a medal. End results matter, sure, but so does intent. Keep reading »
Barbie turned 50 this year, but what does that mean for her sex symbol status? Well, the blond bombshell is officially a cougar! And she can work a pole better than Marisa Tomei in “The Wrestler”. Yup, Barbie’s still got it and as this fake commercial explains, it’s mostly thanks to “dream botox” and her kung-fu grip! [World of Wonder] Keep reading »
The old Yaz commercial that overstates the drug’s benefits.
We’ll post the new ad ASAP!
Back in October, the Food and Drug Administration demanded that Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals say goodbye to the claims made in previous Yaz birth control pill commercials. As it turns out, Yaz isn’t approved to cure pimples or PMS, so the FDA and attorneys general from 27 states have required Bayer to correct previous marketing with a new $20 million ad campaign, which we’ve started seeing on TV. “You may have seen some Yaz commercials recently that were not clear,” an actress says in the new corrective commercial. “The FDA wants us to correct a few points in those ads.” Along with clarifying that the contraceptive pill won’t maintain clear skin or treat PMS, the new ads also point out the potential health risks associated with the drug, which were downplayed in previous ads. The whole thing comes across like an embarrassing, “Oops! We messed up big time!” apology from Bayer. We’ll put up the new commercial as soon as we can! [New York Times] Keep reading »
This is a bit of an oldie, but a goodie, and something I hadn’t seen before until this weekend. When “Lost” was about to make its season one debut in the U.K., edgy photographer and filmmaker, David La Chapelle, was called in to direct the promo spots. Set to the tune of one of the sexiest songs ever, Portishead’s “Numb,” this trailer made me fall in love with “Lost” all over again. Keep reading »
Burlesque star Dita Von Teese is working on an album. According to E! News, Von Teese said she signed a deal with Interscope Records in Europe and hopes to cover Irving Berlin’s song “Lazy.” It’s possible that her album might not ever get to the States because she currently only has a record deal in Europe, however, this bit of news got us wondering about what Von Teese’s singing voice is like, since her speaking voice is quite melodic. While searching YouTube for possible snippets of her singing, we happened upon the above clip, in which she tells Sharon Osbourne no one would want to hear her sing for even two minutes — not a good thing to say about your voice when you’re trying to sell a record.

Dude, s**t went down on “The Real Housewives Of Orange County” reunion last night. That busy body Tamra called out Gretchen for supposedly having an affair with her ex-boyfriend while she was taking care of her sick (now deceased) fiance, Jeff. Something tells me that if it’s true, Jeff probably knew Gretchen had a little piece going on the side and was okay with it, since she was doing everything she could to make his final days comfortable and happy. I mean, I don’t think he was give her much action in the bedroom, considering he was in the hospital so much. But whatever, why is it any of Tamra’s business? She has totally had it out for Gretchen since day one, because Gretchen is younger and hotter and Tamra couldn’t stand being dethroned as the Hottest Housewife. Ugh. These people make me sick. In a good way. Keep reading »
Season Five (probably the last) of “The Hills” starts soon and MTV has released a preview clip. Undoubtedly, these two minutes and 24 seconds are the most exciting moments of the entire season, so watch them now so you don’t have to waste time actually viewing the show! But a couple things to point out — that psychic at the beginning clearly reads Us Weekly, that’s how she knows so much about Lauren. Also, did Brody lose weight? And lastly, have Spencer and Heidi been photographed together lately? Maybe they really do break up… Keep reading »
The term cougar has become a status symbol, synonymous with women of a certain income bracket, age, and beauty. While it is seemly an honor to be pretty and powerful enough to bed a younger man, lately it’s also been misinterpreted and become outright predatory. With Van Halen’s “Hot For Teacher” being consummated all over the country, the term “cougar” is getting a bad name. Indulging in trophy man is one thing, plucking an unripe boyfriend from junior high school is quite another — not to mention it’s illegal. A bunch of bad apple female educators have been spoiling the whole bunch. On Monday, the news that a Massachusetts elementary school teacher running off with her student became public, but she’s hardly the first educator in Massachusetts to rape a child in grade school this year.
