It's Chiquita Madness!


Of the egg-throwing variety. Because they have invisible arms and are adept at pranks, no window is safe from them, for they are bananas. Not even Facebook can hide. Or microsites. Or Twitter. Or mocumentaries.

(Good to see the 12-step meme is alive and well because I need a Bananavention.)

Naked People Furniture Will Be HUGE


It's probably not the nekkidness usually posted here that Steve likes, but it's got the wtfness not seen in a music video or commercial in some time. Directed by Mekanism's Dave and Rory, it's not a bad song, and as the bio says, Valley Lodge is working overtime channeling Cheap Trick, T. Rex, Big Star, the Kinks and a few others. But I guarantee you won't turn on a lamp again or flip a light switch without washing your hands after.

We Get Email - Redux


Putting the Rants in AdRants for a sec, OH you have no idea what gets sent in. Record labels' latest CDs from D-list talent. Nude iPhone tips. (Those we like, actually.) Upcoming Access Hollywood interviews with an extra from the first season of The Hills. 15,000 word PR releases--with no image or link to a campaign--asking if we'd like an image or link. To. The. Campaign.

Ya think?

Because Drunk Chicks Pole Dancing Make Everything Better


Trying hard to work in some party girl material before I leave, Heineken is back with the Know The Signs campaign and a Buzz Toolkit. They have a series of clips out where you can roll over parts of scenes which takes you to... more other scenes. Interactive! They have a series of different characters to watch out for. (Except I don't see drunk dad anywhere.) Ennyway, Drunk Pole Dancing looks like a lotta staged viral fun, after the jump. For my money, the Taxi spot is still the best spot I've seen for drinking responsibly.

A New Spin on Word of The Day

George Parker tested and approved. "Because it's easier to learn with sex, drugs, and f***ing swearing," there's Chris Baker's The f***ing word of the day. It's not your dad's Word of the Day site:

Does This Make My App Look Too Big?


Oh, there's an app for it alright. Why shouldn't plastic surgery have its own app? Developed by facial plastic surgeon Dr. Steven Denenberg, you can either look at hundreds of before and after shots, or take a pic of yourself and email the good doc for an evaluation over coffee. (Nip/Tuck/Latte?) Download it directly kids.

William Shatner for... Dell?


Dude, yer gettin a... overexposed celebrity shilling for anything? (Ohhh, I'm sorry. We were looking for Rachael Ray. Rachael Ray.) What I meant was, a new survey out from Millward Brown claims they've developed a system to rank celebs and the brands they'd be a good fit for. While The Shat has already hawked Commodore computers in the past, the numbers say he fits best with Dell. Miley Cyrus? L'Oreal or Starbucks! Reese Witherspoon for Target. Carrie Underwood equals GUESS. Brad Pitt? Gap. Might we suggest Jon Gosselin for Massengill?

And to Alltel, a Good Night


Lame headline? Sure. But let's not focus on that. What's better than using Fred Willard in this new Alltel spot from Campbell-Ewald? Better than not using of elves and reindeer in yet another Christmas spot? The move to a 1-year plan with FREE, I said FREE, LG Touch. No big deal except the industry has been gouging people with early termination fees for a long time. It's only reluctantly adopted the current system where ETF fees drop $5 a month over the length of contracts. (Didn't keep Verizon from doubling theirs.) Spot below, after the jump.
