Wool Keeps Your Ass Warm

wool_ass.jpg

Likely a spoof or a sick twisted joke by a local farmer, this billboard reverses the whole men and sheep thing, adds a pig and calls it good by all the tagline, "Keeping You Ass Warm Since 1856." Hilarious. And really dumb.

douchebag_mountain.jpg

It just doesn't stop. No matter what we do, the Agency.com fist bump fest just will not leave the building. Not to mention those Brokeback Mountain Parodies Here's yet another spoof of the agency's Subway Pitch Video called Douchebag Mountain that mashes up Brokeback with the boys from Agency.com. We don't know what all this will accomplish for Agency.com or what harm will befall them but we do know this whole thing is officially a viral. We also know people in this insecure industry love to one up themselves by beating the shit out of their competition whenever the opportunity presents itself.

ad_mashup.jpg

Advertising for Peanuts has launched Ad Mashup, a site where Art Directors can throw the creative brief and the client out the window, mashup various ads into their own personal works of art and share the results with the rest of the ad community. This is a great site to play around with while listening to your traffic manager drone on about what's due when knowing full well nothing will ever be delivered on time.

This ought to be fun to watch. Carmen takes the pill. Carmen lose weight. Carmen gets skinny. Carmen's fake boobs stay huge.

Puma and Foot Locker Bring Back Russian American Space Race

superstructure_puma.jpg

Somehow the creators of this site for the release of the Puma Superstructure in Foot Locker has made an analogy to the 60's space race complete with angry Russions and secret files. This is a European site so maybe there's some sort of obsession with the whole Russian American cold war/space race think but for this America, today, Russia's just a gigantic country that makes a lot of vodka.

al_gore_penguins.jpg

Like everyone else, it's Al Gore's turn to be spoofed on YouTube. While Exxon and its PR firm, Washington-based DCI Group, deny having anything to to with it, the creator of Al Gore's Penguin Army, a video that spoofs Gore's An Inconvenient Truth, 29-year-old "Toutsmith" was found by the Wall Street Journal to be using an email address that tracked back to DCI Group. He would not tell the Journal who he was or why he made the video. Oh now let's see. Al's movie slams oil companies. Exxon in an oil company. Nah. There's no connection there.

Grandma, Granddaughter Talk About Big Dicks

reservoir_dicks.jpg

If you take the least likely people expected to utter a slew of dirty language, old ladies and young girls, and fill their mouths with a full-on stream of dick talk as if it were an everyday conversation, well, the outcome is funny. Call it the bathroom humor factor or stick it in the fart joke category but it's still funny. It never tires. Oh, and if it matters, it's all to promote the Reservoir Dogs game. There's second one with f-word-filled gun play.

George Bush Doesn't Read Enough

bush_read.jpg

There's probably something funny about this Toronto SimplyAudioBook.com billboard featuring George Bush but we're so not into politics and it's too early in the AM to figure it out. Anyway, you're all a lot smarter so if you want, feel free to let us in on the joke.
