Kelly Brooke Bares Butt and Boob For Reebok EasyTone


This week, Londoners were treated to a gigantic billboard on which a naked Kelly Brooke illustrated how Reebok EasyTone sneakers will make anyone's ass look as good as hers. Seriously. That's all it takes. A pair of sneakers. And you'll have an ass as fine as Kelly's. Genetics are irrelevant.

Spaceman Stu Admires McDonald's Server's Legs


So...what's going on in this new McDonald's commercial from leo Burnett? Well, Spaceman Stu, a little kid, lands in front of a McDonald's, is handed a Happy Meal filed with all his favorite things. He's a very happy traveler. Especially at the end of the commercial when he catches a glimpse of the McDonald's employees killer legs. Weird.

Anyway, the ad's a month old but it's a slow news day and we caught this on AgencySpy so we thought we'd share.

Battle of the Ad Bands Returns During Advertising Week


For the last two years, McCann Erikson's More Fucking Cowbell has won the annual Advertising Week Battle of the Ad Bands. And rightly so. They rock. But just how long can a dynasty like this last? After all, whatever happened to Whitesnake? Poison? Iron Maiden?

On Tuesday September 28 at the Highline Ballroom beginning at 8PM, you'll all have the chance to see whether or not McCann can keep its title. Or, if you're so inclined, see if you can beat them. If you work in an agency and you have a band, submit your entry here (PDF).

Otherwise, just go. It's a lot of fun.
