Create Your Own Fanta Commercial

This morning, I made my regular daily vist to Apechild where there is always a treasure trove of the new, the bizarre, the hilarious, and the sexy. Today I find a link to a Danish Fanta Web site where you can add subtitles to a collection of film clips and end up with your own personalized commercial. It's hilarious. Try it. Become a creative director!

Also, check out some Apechild forum members creations here as well.

Believe it or Not, This is an Ad

From Mack Simpson over at Adverb...via some other guy, we have this so called ad for this so called KFC something burger. It's a Japanese ad. Do the Japanese actually find this appetizing to look at? If looks like it was barfed up out of a mutant McDonald's kitchen.

NBC and CBS Execs Fight Over Who Has the Biggest...

In classic CEO chest beating fashion, two of the nation's top television executives are bitching about who has the biggest wad...of money, that is. First, we get Les Moonves of CBS claiming, "NBC grosses more [revenue] than we do, but we make more profit."

Well Mort Zucker over at NBC hears this and counters, "That was one of the more laughable claims of the year. Just because he says something doesn't mean it's true."

So who really is the biggest? Hoping to prevent a bitch-slapping spectacle, market research company, Kagan Media Worldwide gave the nod to Moonves stating CBS's expected gross profit would be $700 million and that NBC's would be "only" $670 million.

There you have it, boys. [via MediaWeek]

Reebok Goes After Top Highschool Athelete For Endoresement Deal

Reebok is chasing highschool basketball star LeBron James in hopes he will sign with the sneaker giant for a marketing deal. James is said to be the top NBA draft pick in next month's lottery.

Some say James has the potential to be the next Michael Jordan. And when the stakes are that high, marketers will do anything to get a piece of that. Of course, Reebok, is not alone in it's quest to sign James. Nike and Adidas are also in the running.

May the best sneaker company win. [via Boston Globe]

Heidi Klum Ad Campaign Makes People So Horny They Steal The Ads

A Heidi Klum outdoor ad campaign has been so successful that every time a poster goes up, some fan tears it down. The campaign, for H&M, features Klum in sexy bikini poses. In order to keep the ad campaign up, H&M is promising to give anyone who wants one, a free poster of Klum. Anything to keep the campaign up and running, I guess. [via Ananova]

The Reason Most Americans Are Fat

Oh sure, we should all be responsible for our own weight management but it's hard when we are bombarded with food offerings that amount to Catherine Zeta Jones serving sizes. McDonalds', the Supersize folks now have an even bigger supersize called the XBoz size. They've partnered with Microsoft to offer these new sizes that are designed for the "quantity over quality" demographic.

Quantity over quality is dead on when it comes to McDonald's and is further indication that corporate America doesn't give a shit about what they have to do to make money.

These new french fry and soft drink sizes (64oz. I think) are so big that they need titanium struts in the packaging to hold them up. Titanium!

So there you have it. The next disgusting offering from the company that will go down in Anthropology as the primary reason for average weight of an American reaching 300 pounds by 2050. Just wait, there will certainly be another "you made me fat, because I have no control over what I put in my mouth" lawsuit. But this time, it will be called the "Microsoft made me Zeta Jones myself to 500 pounds" lawsuit. [via bbspot (whatever that is)]

Like Cats? Now There's A TV Show Just For You

The Meox Mix Company along with Lime Public Relations is producing a television show called "Meow TV". The program will run on the Oxygen network and will, of course, be full of Meow Nix commercials.

I suppose this falls into the advertainment category since, in reality, the whole show is a Meow Mix commercial that just happens to have some sort of entertainment value because it stars a cat and a comedian.

Here's some lofty brand-speak from Richard Thompson, chief executive of something over at MeowMix. "As the largest brand of dry cat food in America, Meow Mix's mission is keeping cats, and their owners, happy," he said. "Everything is developed from within the brand, what the brand stands for."

Right. Thanks to Reverse Cowgirl. [via New York Times]
