This is Not the Raciest Commercial Ever Made

OK, we're like days late to this new Lifestyles Skyn Condoms commercial and all its domestic, international and web-only versions. But when a release screams, "quite possibly the raciest commercial ever made," our interest is peaked.

Sadly, it's no where near the raciest commercial ever made, online or off. Oh yea, it's got all kinds of sexual gyrations, racy shots of barely dressed hotties and a condom fairy but it's far from the raciest anything. Seriously. How racy can a commercial featuring people having sex be if the people having sex are still wearing their underwear?

Created by AMP Boston and produced by Best Company Ever, the ad...wait for it...uses sex to sell a sex-related product. How revolutionary! Brilliant! Call Cannes!

Yet Another Product Solves A Problem We Don't Actually Have

Aw...look. It's butter that's nice to bread and croissants. How is this GayLee spreadable butter so
nice? Because it's not hard, spreads easily and doesn't destroy what it's being applied to.

But come on.

Have we really arrived at a place where we need a product like this when all one needs to do is store regular butter out of the refrigerator where is won't get hard and will spread just as easily as a "spreadable" butter which is likely filled with unnecessary chemical ingredients?

Well At Least Granny Isn't Pissing On A Test Diaper Here

Many brands use analogies to help explain their product features and benefits. Even makers of diapers for grownups. But seriously, WTF? Touting the new line of Depends by comparing the fact they're different to the fact men drive differently than women and commentary on who rules the world; men or women?

Relatable? Yes. Lame? Definitely.

Black Battles White For Green Obama Girl

obama_girl_americas_green_campus.jpg

So where's Obama Girl when you need her smile to cheer you up? She's in yet another Barely Political video pimping a new environmental effort America's Greenest Campus, an efforts which urges schools to compete against one another to see who can reduce their carbon footprint the most.

We aren't even going to comment on the oh-so-tired hip-hop black dude trumping the lame-ass white guy stereotype. Oops, we just did. Sorry about that. But don't listen to us, green is color blind, right? Oh wait, that makes no sense at all.

Just watch Obama Girl. She's way more exciting that reading about her here on Adrants.
