break_bad_mentos_parody.jpg

From our current favorite TV show, Breaking Bad, comes this Mentos parody that has fun with the scene in which Walter buys new cars for himself and his son, Walter Jr.

The scene, of course, lends itself perfectly the oddity of previous Mentos work.

Ladies, Would You Jump Hurdles to Get Your Axe-Wearing Man?

axe_high_street_hurdles.jpg

This one's no where near as good as its sister ad, Hot Putt, nor is the woman in this second ad as hot as the woman in the first. But, hey, there's only so many times BBH can create "hot" ads for Axe before they strike out once in a while. OK, OK. She has a really great ass. Satisfied?

The second ad, High Street Hurdles just doesn't have the same oomph and lustful determination of the the first ad. In each ad, a woman is drawn to a man wearing Axe but the woman in the Hot Putt ad goes to greater lengths to get her man. And, unlike the woman going after the construction worker in the second ad, the woman in the first ad actually gets to full on have her way with the lucky guy.

So you remember that crazy skydiving stunt Hotels.com did when extreme athlete JT Holmes booked a room at a hotel while in free fall? If not, here it is. Now, Hotels.com, with help from Y&R, is at it again but this time they've got stuntman Andy Bell trying to book a hotel room while he's running with the bulls in Pamplona, Spain.

As the kids say, that shit is cray.

Horny Women Do the Strangest Things

Usually when a guy needs to lay some pipe, he does all sorts of stupid stuff to get the girl. But when a girl gets the urge, it's a bit more subtle. But not when you are a woman under the spell of the Axe Effect. In this case, a woman will do everything she can to get the meat she craves.

Brian Atwood Ads With Naked Candace Swanepoel Banned

candace_swanepoel_brian_atwood.jpeg

Fashion brand Brian Atwood hooked up with Victoria's Secret angel Candice Swanepoel for a steamy ad campaign. The ads are so steamy that print versions has been banned from hanging from the brand's Madison Avenue storefront and the video has been pulled from interior taxi video screens.

What all the hubbub about? Nudity. And lots of it. Nudity and a plethora of S&M-like activity. In the ad, Swanepoel sits in an office (naked) and watches herself on video screens engage in a bit of clothed, orgy-like action. It's fairly tame in actuality but we can see why it was pulled. No one really wants to be caught in a cab with their grandmother when that comes on.

La-Z-Boy Ad Attacks Brooke Shields

lazboy2.jpg

One really can't write an item about Brooke Shields doing La-Z-Boy ads without referencing her spectacular advertising debut 32 years ago (yes, 32) for Calvin Klein when, at 15, she coyly uttered the famous line, "You wanna know what comes between me and my Calvins? Nothing."

Now, at 47 and still looking quite the hottie, Brooke can be seen in a pair of new La-Z-Boy commercials. In one she is tormented by a neighbor who just can't get over the fact she got her furniture at La-Z-Boy. In another, Brooke makes note of the fact it's La-Z-Boy's 85 anniversary and that the brand knows it doesn't need an ad that screams, Sale!"

Or does it?
