Hubba Wheels Gets Hubba Hubba With It's Advertising

Quite racy and probably NSFW comes a collection of 36 ads for Hubba Wheels which, simply, are wheels for skateboards. Heavily leveraging the brand name Hubba, the campaign takes on an in-your-face, hubba-hubba approach with ad after ad filled with bodaciously-boobed babes wearing next to nothing.

With porny headlines like "hit me with your best shot" and "nice and round. no flat spots here," the campaign is a perfect fit for youthful, hormonally charged boys who skate by day and wish they were getting laid by the bodacious babes in these ads by night.

Guy Who Cut Parking Meter With Chainsaw Just Another Marketing Stunt

in_time_chainsaw_parking_meter.jpg

Perhaps many of you have already seen the video that shows couple of workers in Brooklyn face off with a meter maid after their meter has expired. The video gets interesting when, rather than accept the ticket, one of the guys whips out a chainsaw and cuts the meter in two. With close to 500,000 views, some media outlets reported the video as an authentic capture of the event.

Well, it's just another marketing stunt. Yesterday the company behind the stunt, Thinkmodo, posted a longer version of the video which reveals it was all a publicity stunt for the upcoming film In Time which opens today. We are told the initial video contained several elements of the movie such as the blue jump suits the men wore.

It's wonderful the original video has received almost 500,000 views. The problem here, of course, is that the "reveal" video had less than 500 views. Unless that video gets as many or more views as the original, it's all really just a waste. Unless, of course, we press types all write about it and inform everyone what it's really about. Which, of course, is exactly what Thinkmodo wants us all to do.
