Police Officer Busts Makeup Offenders


Benefit Cosmetics has unleashed Chelsea Lately writer Sarah Colonna, dressed her up as a police officer, placed her on a Segway and charged her with handing out tickets to makeup crime offenders.

Colonna is blunt in her approach asking one woman if she can "order a hamburger of your face" because her eyebrows look like "McDonald's arches."

Crazy stuff. She even tells one woman her fake boobs are "ridiculous looking."

Of course, the stunt aims to align itself with the brand's tagline, Laughter is the best cosmetic."

Dior Addict Film Transports You to St. Tropez


Though set in 2012, this RAF Films-created work for Dior harkens a more 1960's-ish feel. Specifically, the Brigitte Bardot film And God Created Woman. Directed by Jonas Akerland, the work, which was shot on the beaches and streets of St. Tropez, touts Dior's Addict fragrance.

In the film, released in June, a Brigitte Bardot-like model, the very full-lipped 17-year-old Daphne Groenveld, frolics her way around the beach and streets tantalizing onlookers with her exotic looks.

The film doves a wonderful job almost transporting you to St. Tropez and almost making you feel like a woman as beautiful as Groenveld would almost give you the time of day. So that's an accomplishment in and of itself.

Keith Stone is still up to his old antics in this new Keystone commercial which examines the art of flipping a burger and, with a choose your own adventure tactic, how to get the hot girl.

As an avid skier, we can appreciate the surreal joy of a chairlift ride up the mountain. It's a time when you can drink in the beauty of your surroundings, enjoy conversation with a stranger or, in the case of these Wexley School for Girls-created ads for Copper Mountain, wax eloquently about the oddest stuff imaginable.

Seven new ads, shot entirely against a green screen, allow for brilliant oddities such as kids who aren't really kids, a miniature spaceship and the ability to have your actors just sit there and rap about whatever you want them to.
