Bikini Model Tells Director Ad Will Be Better With Her T-Shirt Off

robot_conferencing.jpg

This promotion just might be the perfect combination of YouTube video, the teaser, commercial outtakes, a GoDaddy-esque bikini model, a frustrated director and a bra that's not a bra but a bikini. Actress, cover model, former World Wrestling Entertainment Smackdown Diva, and New York City's "most requested bikini model, Lauren Jones has been tapped (oh yes, we know we all over use that word for its oh-so-witty double meaning) by online conferencing company Robot Conferencing. Check out the teaser on YouTube here and then follow the link to the full length commercial here in which Jones and the director debate the merits of why or why not a bikini model should take her shirt off in a television commercial.

Wow, that might have been good if they found someone that could actually act. Not to mention the fact that you aren't hearing anything that she is saying b/c you are waiting for the unveiling. I'm guessing a hairy male lesbian thought up that commercial.

Genius marketing. Just genius.

Whatever. Can't anyone do anything clever anymore?

Boobs are not creative.

I actually signed up to the Robot Conferencing service (after a trip to the bathroom) and had a conference call. It works great.

Posted by: CharleyK on July 14, 2006 4:01 PM

Who said it had to be clever and creative? It's a selling tool. And it seems to work.

Posted by: Grouchy11 on July 14, 2006 4:55 PM

Well done. After all, I clicked. If you clicked then it worked. We're talking about it, so it worked.

And by the way, free teleconferencing sounds good to me. And I think she's right about having the shirt off. The director was being stodgy.

Ha so silly. I gotta say dear Adranter, that your insistance that you are merely reflecting the sex inherent in advertising is wearing a little thin - I mean what's the ratio of tit advertising to non-tit advertising on your main page, 2 to 1? I'm not offended or anything, and I'm sure it keeps the traffic pouring into the blog (hell, I check you 2x a day) but don't play like it's JUST the ad biz that you reflect... I check plenty of other adblogs and they ain't got half the ass on display that you got.

Another clueless site (not yours; this linked "robot" site). Flash 8? No thanks; why should I upgrade a perfectly functional Flash plugin to view your specific content. And to top it off they capture your browser and make your Back button inoperative. (Though right-clicking works.) Just crap. And you mean to say they expect people to SIGN UP FOR SERVICE from a company that is incompatible with huge swaths of the web audience??

Yo "B" in the post above: Are you stupid? 99% of people have Flash 8, and the video that Robot Conferencing.com uses comes from Vimeo.com. Even my grandfather enjoyed the video.

Posted by: kinto on July 15, 2006 12:11 PM

Yo "kinto" in the post above: Can you read? Can you Google? Do you have any functioning brain matter at all? In 6 seconds of Googling the first hit leads to

As of April 2006, 97% of people have Flash 6 and almost 95% have Flash 7. Flash 8? Try 69%, you insulting, ignorant fool. I see that "Robot Conferencing" is adequately serving the "stupid" market and your proud "I let everything install" stance. Had they any interest in actually marketing a product, they might not purposely exclude a third of the potential audience, for no reason whatsoever. -- B

Well, apperantly it's not AdRants' fault that there's so much 'sex in advertising'.....

You gotta report what's hot in advertising (literally).... and I doubt anyone's going to argue with this post!

Posted by: Zeid Nasser on July 16, 2006 4:27 AM

Her acting is as fake as her breasts. I'd be hard pressed to remember a single thing she said by the time I click "Post". Shortly after that I'll have forgotten what she looks like.

Shitty ad.

Posted by: Paolo on July 16, 2006 2:00 PM

Yep, you best avoid that nasty Flash 8. As far as excluding half of their audience, I highly doubt that the intended audience is as tight-assed as you about installing a flippin' plug-in that's necessary to view half the stuff on the internet. Watch out, B, that's Flash 9 just around the corner!!! RUN!!!

Posted by: Brent Meyer on July 17, 2006 3:27 PM

Um, ARE ALL OF YOU OUT OF YOUR MINDS? That chick is HOT... who the hell cares about all the in depth shit you are all ranting about. LOSEN the hell up, enjoy the HOT babe, miss Lauren Jones, and live a little. I just can't get over how everyone is talking about flash 8 - The girl is hot, the ad is cute, everyone CHILL and enjoy sexiness. DAMN.

Posted by: Johny Boy on July 18, 2006 12:50 AM

yep, i agree.. the girl is smoking hot and everyone, get a clue... sex sells and always will.

Posted by: adam on July 18, 2006 12:53 AM

Yep, I concur. The girl is hot as hell, like incredible, I'd love to hang with that chick. And the ad is smoking hot, it clearly works. Here's the funny part... whoever said she CAN'T act is just a jealous chick who wishes she was Lauren Jones and fronting to be a dude. It's obvious. Whatever. Who cares so much. This is obviously creating a huge stir. I can't get over how you guys are talking about BS when I'm going back to the site to watch the hot chick. She is a good actor in my book. HOORAY for hot chicks that are funny! And have nice tatas!! Go Lauren Jones! You are HOT AS HELL baby!

Posted by: Alan on July 18, 2006 12:59 AM

haha, you are all hilarious. you are so right, someone is jealous and posting nasty words.. that is just funny... and yes, this is clever marketing, whether it has been done before or not, everyone likes funny, gorgeous women who can speak clearly. come on, be realistic. I am now a Lauren Jones fan.

Posted by: Ben on July 18, 2006 1:04 AM

the girl is HOT. the ad is HOT. my whole office had a great 2 minute break. THANK you for hot chicks. and we are happy to say, we are all looking for lauren jones on myspace.. ha!

Posted by: JJJJ on July 18, 2006 1:15 AM

Um... quit ranting. Did anyone take the time to actually google Lauren Jones??? Uh, HELLLLO!!! If you have any interest at all in www.robotconferencing.com, and I assume you ALL do considering all of your comments and the time you took to post them... ENJOY fellas!

And this is why advertising never goes anywhere. People like this. Ooga-booga, me like boobies.

Yeah, she's hot, but it's old and I don't really care. I've become desensitized to tits and ass. Yes, I still recognize it and appreciate it, but I could give 2 shits about Robot Conferencing or who the girl in the add really is. A nice pair of fake boobs doesn't get my business. Sorry.

Posted by: Brent Meyer on July 18, 2006 10:42 AM

Brent, you're right. With so many models out there with huge NATURAL breasts (http://www.overdevelopedamateurs.com, http://www.divinebreasts.com), why settle for fake? :-)

Posted by: Steve Hall on July 18, 2006 11:35 AM

3 words: Lauren Jones ROCKS!

Posted by: Jayster on July 20, 2006 2:57 PM

Hey Brent, the point of the ad was not only to generate business from those who chose to sign up for robotconferencing, but also to generate a buzz... guess what buddy, you fell for it because you are sitting there writing comments about Lauren Jones' breasts and the company. So regardless of what you are saying, they apparently "gotcha!" I have to laugh. I work for a law firm and I don't really care about T&A either, but I can recognize an incredible girl. That Lauren Jones has a sparkle and everyone is jumping on the train. Whether it is her, the company, the ad, whatever, it has created a mega buzz and you happen to be a part of it.

Posted by: rett on July 20, 2006 10:27 PM

If you are a straight male, you like breasts and ass, end of story. If you are a straight male, you like beautiful women. IF YOU ARE A STRAIGHT MALE, you like this commercial. Hate and Love are two words that basically stem from the same feeling. You can't hate something without loving it on a subconsious level. If you are here posting something critical of this girl, Lauren Jones, then you are either a)gay, b)jealous because you are another girl and NOT Lauren Jones, or a fat ugly guy and know you can never GET a girl like this or d)stupid.
