Paris Hilton's Carl's Jr. Commercial Re-Imagined Cowgirl-Style

weinerschnitzel_cowgirls.jpg

Derivative. Obvious. Awesome. We'd yawn except even derivatively obvious commercials featuring sexy women dressed as cowgirls are, well, awesome. Not sure the pair are going to sell any Double Chili Cheeseburgers for Wienerschitzel but that's probably a good thing.

Lexus 'Pitch' Should Have Been Pitched at Conception

lexus_wine_glass.jpg

This is the pursuit of the impossible. This is the pursuit of perfection. This is the pursuit of a stupid car commercial. Like it really matters whether or not your 522 horsepower V10 engine can shatter a wine glass? Like that has anything at all to do with the actual performance of the vehicle?

Idiots. A car is not a musical instrument. It's a car. People use it to get from one place to another. Oh sure, we all want to get there is style and comfort but shatter a wine glass? Seriously? There's probably one person in the world who cares about such meaningless precision. And that person is likely the creative director who envisioned this ego-fueled head trip.

Thanks. Now we know a Lexus can crack a wine glass. Like anyone gives a shit.

H&M Gives us the Skinny on This Year's Line of Bikinis

hm_beach_bikini.jpg

When you think H&M, you don't usually think of a group of lithe ladies seductively cavorting on the beach Victoria's Secret-style. But after you view this new-ish commercial from the retailer, you just might change your mind.

One by one, each of the five delicious ladies in this commercial gets their own personal camera love. It's beautiful. It's pleasing to the eye. It makes you want to run out and buy a bikini. That is if you weigh less than 100 pounds and aren't sporting anything bigger than a B cup.
