Watermelons Sell Clothing

primitive_desiree_elyda.jpg

Ever heard of Desiree Elyda Villalobos? We know. It's a mouthful. And she is. She's best known for...well, not much at all...except for the fact she possesses the sort of look and shape that could catapult her to fame if for no other reason than for her look and shape. After all, what the hell makes the Kardashians so popular?

Anyway, Villalobos can currently be seen in a promotional video for Primitive Apparel. In the video, she wanders peacefully through a park and has a picnic of fruit and, yes, watermelon, as her "shape" threatens to unleash itself from the confines of her clothing.

This is what passes for fashion promotion.

Faux School Girl Lust Ad Gets Lion Rescinded

kia_ac_crop.jpg

We like this Kia ad. The Cannes press Lions jury liked this ad. They liked it so much they awarded it a Silver Lion. The ad pimps Kia's dual zone air conditioning with alternating cartoon images of a clean cut classroom scenario and a classroom scenario that is decidedly less clean cut.

It got the point across if in a very twisted manner. You can have it your way riding in a Kia. Just like a horny teacher whose mind wanders in the classroom. Twisted but it gets the point across. The problem is the ad never ran. And that's a no-no when it comes ti winning a Lion. Or any award for that matter. Kia disavows the ad and has said it never ran and was never approved.

Kids Predict Future of Air Travel

As part of their continued effort working on the Webby-nominated The GE Show, The Barbarian Group is out with another episode called Future Flight. It's an animated video that asks children - and two GE aviation experts - what the future of flight will look like. Everything from what the planes look like, where they will fly and how they will be powered is covered. We especially like the idea of algae-field jet engines.

When Lingerie Ads Sell Russian Mail Order Brides

incanto_lingerie.jpg

Hot chicks? Check. Slow motion videography? Check. Close up shots of the "do me" look? Check. Catwalk prance? Check. Windblown hair? Check? Overuse of strobe lights and flash? Check. Pulsating soundtrack? Check. Booty shots? Check. Cleavage shots? Check.

If you've completed this list then you have created yourself a Russian lingerie commercial. If you steal this commercial and upload it to your own YouTube account and drop a link to Russian Beautiful Girls then you're a lazy Russian dating service marketer.
