Hottie Puts Booty and Boobs to Work Selling Cars


What, really, can we say about this Russian car dealer commercial? We all know that hot women go hand in hand with hot cars but this outing takes that notion and puts it on steroids. This impossibly hot model wraps her hotness around a vehicle in a showroom wearing nothing more that a cleavage enhancing bra and a booty revealing thong. She slathers her body all over the vehicle as if she were about to have an orgasm. This is how they sell c ars in Russia. Oh and we guess you can buy a car with a credit card too.

Health Net Stands Behind Fake Tweets


Back in September we shared a story about health provider Health Net which used fake tweets to promote its services. We called the work "a juvenile marketing move and yet another example of testimonials gone wrong."

Now, the brand is doing a bit of back peddling presenting us with what they claim to be the real people behind the Twitter accounts they used in the campaign. The move is laughable as the accounts - NonStopMom2, HealthNut_2 and Biz_Guy1 - have just one or two tweets, all of which read "Thank you for your interest, learn more here" with a link that points to three "testimonials" from the "owners" of these Twitter accounts.

Redhook Says 'Getting Married Is So Gay'


Leading up to election day and Washington State's referendum 74, Redhook beer, with help from Seattle-based Frank Unlimited, has taken a pro same-sex marriage stance with an ad that says "getting married is so gay. It's about time."

It's always a gamble when a brand takes a stand on such polarizing issues. At risk is the loss of business from one end of the spectrum or the other. But it's admirable when a brand is brave enough to publicly share its collective beliefs

Switzerland Insures A Timeless Vacation by Removing All Clocks


We love this Spillman/Fesler/Leo Burnett-created tourism spot for Switzerland that goes to great lengths to prove just how serious the country is when it comes to providing a pace to relax on vacation.

The work is beautifully shot and captures the true beauty of the country. You can almost believe the two men in this commercial actually did travel the entire country dismantling it of all time pieces.

We especially like the treatment the rooster gets at the end. Nicely done.
