Man in Testicle Suit is Deployed onto Ice Rink. Hijinks Ensue

carpe-testes.png

Ever consider funding the Sean Kimerling Testicular Cancer Foundation?

If you haven't, watching a man dressed like balls get slammed into a window might convince you to. And even if it doesn't, you might wander into a bathroom to check your 'nads, which is almost as good.

(Sidenote on the video: Giant pubes on the ice! Giant pubes ON THE ICE!)

See more videos by agency Struck at Carpe Testes (aww, cute URL).

Bootylicious Ass Offers Last Minute, Pre-Holiday Office Fantasy

wellrounded_800x600.jpg

Now wait just a friggin' minute. Since when does fine, upstanding AdFreak get to dwell in the Adrants gutter by posting images of impossibly hot ass? Well, apparently, a couple days before the holiday break when either no one in the industry is really working so no one will see it or all the agency bosses have left early making it open season for employees to stare at bootylicious ass rather than finalize that media plan or revise that layout for the fifteenth time.

Barbara Lippert called it "too, too cheeky." Brandweek called it "provocative." We'll just call it damn fine ass and be done with it. At this point, does it even matter what this ad is for? Do you really care? No, you don't. You just want to stare at it, fantasize about being with it and hope no one walking by your office catches you in the middle of pulse pounding mental moment..

Curves Campaign Highlights Workout, Not Weight Loss

nan_mirror.jpg

Curves International, the place where women can fine tune their curves, has launched an ad campaign that doesn't make everyone feel fat or over sized in certain areas choosing to focus more on the actual workout rather than shedding pounds. The campaign, from Publicis Dallas will consist of TV, radio and online with the tagline, "Your Curves will amaze you." And yes, indeed, some curves do, in fact, amaze.

OK, OK. That was really lame but it's the end of the year and we're trying to purge.

The Wonderbralla, Christvertising, And Check Your Balls

- Yes, it's another Wonderba ad. This one illustrates the amazing ability of well formed cleavage to function as a third hand.

- Well just how long with we have to wait for this "vertising" thingny? Courtesy of Aberdeen, Christvertising joins the list.

- Um, yup, please check your balls before stepping onto the ice rink.

Ditched Toys Are the Reason We've 'Smurfed' Up Christmas

wearethetoys_.jpg

"So what if I'm gay? You let my rainbow fade away," accuses a Care Bear in this awesome video where toys rebuke cynical adults for ditching them after puberty, thereby ruining their Christmases -- and ours -- forever.

And if our He-Man could talk, he probably would be just that ditzy.

Thanks go out to Grey, Vancouver for putting it together.

Social Media Takes Year End Beating

social_networks_chart.jpg

While desperately holding out hope there's actually be something other than agency holiday cards to write about as the week draws to a close, we found two interesting pieces about the back lash of social networking. The first story comes from CoolzOr who announces he now officially hates social networks. What caused him to arrive at this state of mind. A growing social network-focused search engine called Spock.

Spock is one of those social applications that spreads virally and that is supposed to be a search engine of sorts for the billions of bits and bytes of information generated from social networks. It's supposed to make it easy to find information about people you now on the internet. Trouble is, some people think it pries too deeply into the information people place on their social network profiles. Some also feel it generates an insane amount of email notifications and it makes it nearly impossible to stop the notifications and the collection of information.

Suffering Crises Untold? Pray a Hi! Photographer Finds You

everyone-smiles.png

For Sri Lankan society magazine Hi!, Leo Burnett Solutions Inc. put together three ads with a dark (but friendly!) feel.

The tagline: "Everyone smiles for Hi!" The angle: Even in miserable situations (a funeral, a riot, a stampede of Nazis or psychotic clowns) you're still gonna smile for a Hi! photographer.

The effort will appear on TV and in magazines, as well as at high society functions in the form of what the PR people call "quirky activations." Is that a euphemism for "overhead projectors"?

Google Lavishes Affiliates with Flip Video Cameras

google_flip_video.png

Once upon a time, before Google was worth more than the souls of our unborn children, we were premium Google affiliates.

What did we get for the holidays? A leather binder stuffed with branded Google adaptors, miniature lights, memory sticks and wireless mice.

This year, Google's giving away branded Flip video cameras.

Okay. It's not exactly an iPod touch, but come on! It's 256 times cooler than a memory stick and wireless mouse with Chinese implementation instructions.
