Old Crooner Laments Inability to Charm Hotel Vixen


We suppose there was a time back in pre-internet times when scoring reduced price hotel room or an upgrade depended a bit more on one's personality and charm than on one's mouse clicking skills. Sadly, those days are gone as the old crooner in this Barton F. Graf 9000-created Kayak ad laments.

Thankfully, there is Kayak. But, sadly, our crooner wants nothing to do with advanced technology preferring to further wallow in depression with drink in hand.

Mad Men Cast Sing Rick Astley's 'Never Gonna Give You Up'


It's not the most musically pleasing experience but you've got to give credit to the video's creators for culling through four year's worth of Mad Men episode to editing together just the right lyrics to verbalize Rick Astley's Never Gonna Give You Up.

The video was created for Richard Sandling's Perfect Movie, a monthly stand up comedy show about films at The Leicester Square Theare, London.

In a way, the Mad Men cast have Rickroled Astley, himself.

Is This A Shoe Commercial or an Audi Commercial?


We're not sure what we're supposed to be paying attention to in this new Venebles Bell & Partners Audi commercial which touts the new 2013 S8 sedan. The 60-second spot, entitled Suspect and scheduled to air during the Giants vs. Cowboys season opener on NBC Sept. 5 game, takes cues from heist films.

As the ad progresses, we are left to decide whether a robbery has transpired or if the scene was purely a figment of the driver's imagination. Personally, we wonder what the women in the red pumps is going to look like when she is finally revealed.

Resurrected Obama Girl Still Has Crush on Obama


Five years ago, the smoking hot Amber Lee Ettinger (who, by the way, loves Adrants) took on the role of Obama Girl in a series of videos created by Barely Political and scored by Leah Kaufman. This time around, Ettinger has decided to sit out telling The Daily Caller she "is not as excited as I was the last time, that's for sure."

In her stead, songstress Leah Kaufman, herself, is in front of the camera with a new song entitled "Still a Crush on Obama." Sure, she's not as hot as Ettinger but her message is just as passionate this time around.

Chuck Norris Channels Ronald Reagan in Pro-Romney Video


In one of the oddest "celebrity" endorsements we've seen in a while, Chuck Norris and his wife, Gina, talk about a "growing concern." According to the Chuck and Gina, America is under attack and may be lost forever if we don't change the course in which we are headed.

That course change Norris advocates is a vote for Romney. As explanation for why Obama won in 2008, Gina says 30 million evangelical Christians stayed home on voting day which is why Obama won by 10 million votes. Are we to assume that all evangelical christians are republican. Maybe most are but her statement is a leap in logic.

Mitsubushi Facebook App Dubs Former Adrants Editor 'Most Pretentious'


Oh who would have thought? So we're checking out Mitsubishi's new Facebook app Unpretentious, a witty app that takes a look at your fiends, determines which are the most pretentious and then destroys some of their images and posts with the new 2013 Outlander.

The app, created by 180LA, chose none other than former Adrants Editor Angela Natividad as our most pretentious Facebook friend. While we'd never consider Angela to be pretentious in real life, we do sort of envy her Paris-based lifestyle which includes annual trips to the south of France and other exotic locations the world over. And, perhaps tricking up the app into thinking she actually is pretentious, no one can spin a phrase better than Angela.

Bonjour, Angela!

At 32D, Stone doesn't really need a push up bra but her pushed up 32Ds sure do look good in this new video, part of the just launched ad campaign.

You Won't Ignore These Flight Safety Instructions


Once you've stepped on a plane, placed your bags in the overhead bin or under the seat in front of you and sent that last, very important "I'm on a plane" text, you sit back, relax and completely ignore the flight attendants doing their flight safety routine.

Unless, of course, the flight safety routine is really a guerrilla marketing stunt like the one in this video.
