Indian Model Lara Dutta Dons Lettuce For PETA GoVeg Campaign

lara_dutta_peta_go_veg.jpg

Here we go again. Peta. Veggies. Hotties covered in lettuce. All to convince us meat is bad and veggies are good. This time it's actress Lara Dutta donning the leaves for the cause.

Personally, we prefer her in a bikini. And short shorts. Under shower of water.

Vomit-Fueled Puke-Fest Calls Attention to Teen Drinking

two_double_shots.jpg

Gee thanks, AdFreak. Thanks for helping the us toss up our bloody mary this morning after watching this Atticus Finch-created PSA for NHS Northamptonshire. We just love watching idiotic teens drink themselves into oblivion and swim in their own puke.

But there was a silver lining to this vomit-fest. It woke us up. Oh yes it did. For a while there, we thought we were just going to blow the day off and head to the beach. Now, it seems, we just might do a little work. If only to take our mind off the disgusting realization getting drunk can, well, be really, really gross.

'Upskirt' Ad Causes Controversy For Condo Complex

look_up_way_up_skirt.jpg

Up in Calgary there's a bit of a furor over a billboard campaign promoting a new condo complex. At issue is the image and copy which consists of an almost upskirt shot of a woman in a miniskirt along with the words, "Look up... Way up."

The condo complex is being developed by ProCura which just finished restoring a sufragette home currently being used as a sales office for the new condo complex. Upon completion of the condo complex, ProCura has promised to turn the home into a community center for women's groups and a museum for the Famous 5, a group of Alberta women who fought for women's rights.

So...the complaint centers upon the disconnect between the work ProCura will do for women's groups and the campaign which some have labeled offensive.

28-year-old web designer Travis Gertz doesn't like the campaign. "My wife Rachel and I just got back from eight months travelling through the United States," he says. "The first thing I see when I get home is this offensive ad; it makes you embarrassed to be a Calgarian."

Thoughts?

Jenna Dewan Tatum Skinned to Save Reptiles

900-JennaDewanTatumSkins.jpg

Thank God we have animals in this world. Otherwise, PETA would have nothing to do! Whether it's elephants, baby seals, foxes or whatever. If there's an animal involved, PETA is there. This time, it's all about snakes and the cause group has tapped Jenna Dewan Tatum to save the plight of snakes, lizards, alligators, crocodiles and anything else with a skin.

To aid the save-the-skinned-reptile effort, Tatum was painted to look like a reptile herself.

Cleavage Alert! Do Not Watch if Easily Distracted!

vw_macgruber.jpg

There's nothing like cleavage to distract from a message. Well, that along with a MacGyver wannabe and a foreign language to cause one to wonder what the hell is going on in this Volkswagen commercial. Something needs fixing and MacGyver is there to do it...or screw it up totally. That or it's also a Home Depot commercial. Anyway...that's for pointing us to this, AdFreak.

Nothing Like A Bullet to the Head to Deliver a Message

jakarta_psa.jpg

Well now. Here's a jarring tidbit for a holiday week. Nothing like a bullet to the head to ruin a peaceful Cape Cod vacation. So we've all heard the oft-spoken phrase "friends don't let friends drink and drive." This Indonesian effort from Advance Advertising doesn't waste time preaching. It jumps right to the forgone conclusion of that phrase and puts a gun to the head of passengers as they leave an alcohol-fueled party.

Kardashian Sisters Bare Curves tp Promote Beach Bunny Swimwear

kardashians_beach_bunny_ad1.jpg

Yea. We know. There's really no redeeming quality nor reason to mention this new campaign featuring the Kardasian sister's pimping their new Beach Bunny swimwear line except for the fact it's summer and it's hot and they're hot. Well, that's a matter of opinion but they're wearing bathing suits and, well, it's summer so, yea, that justifies this.
