Two Hotties Capture Dude in Hotel Room For Webcam Action

heides_diesel.jpg

When someone sends us something they describe as "sexy and juicy," our attention perks up. So off we shot over to the Diesel site where, beginning today and running through Friday, two girls in their underwear are holding a guy, a Diesel sales rep, hostage webcam-style on a bed in a hotel room. The set up has five camera angles to choose from and the ability to chat with the two girls. Though intriguing, as with most live webcam set ups, the quality is bad and video and audio continuously cut in and out. That's no way to enjoy hotties of either sex. Perhaps they'll get it right after a while. OK, now it's working fine. Aside from pure tantalization, we're not quite sure how this is going to sell any product for the company. Oh wait. This is advertising. It's not suppose to sell. It's suppose to amuse. Our bad.

Cohabitation Stereotypes Promote Middle East Marriage Service

dubai_marriage_service.jpg

Here's a couple of spots created by TBWA Dubai for an "online matrimonials" site called Bentelhalal (we're guessing that's their version of a dating...arranged marriage?...site) that capture perfectly long-held stereotypes about men and women living together. We won't spoil. Just watch. (1, 2) They're very simple and we like simple. We're not sure about arranged marriages though.

3D Intestinal Parasites Attack Conference Attendees

virbac_parasites.jpg

We once worked in an agency where one of the B2B clients was in the dermatology space and each month a magazine called Cutis would appear in the mail room. When the magazine arrived, several of us took great pleasure in horrifying the squeamish at the agency by placing copies of the magazine on their desks. The cover of the magazine always featured some disgustingly sick skin affliction, pussing orfice or freakishly huge zit-like thing no one would ever want to see on their own body. What? You thought ad agencies were intellectual institutions staffed by scholarly folk who would never stoop to such antics?

Toyota RAV4 Great For...Medieval Joust?

rav4_joust.jpg

While quite a few commenters think this Toyota RAV4 jousting spot is for shit, we like it purely for its unique entertainment value and because it's not a winding mountain road spot. And, wouldn't it be fun to watch two drunk idiots actually try to do this? Come one. You know you like it. Admit it.

Desperate Execs Give Sexy Carwashes for Hard Drive Financing

exec-in-underpants.png

To push HP Total Care for small and mid-sized businesses, Moxie Interactive put together a few digital spots that depict hard-up SMB owners raising money for hardware. See Carwash and Experts.

Total Care acts as a kind of financing and product lifecycle management service. We dig the spots, even if we'd prefer to see a younger demographic whoring out carwashes in their underpants.

Our big question (and really, this is always our big question): how do they get into the hands of small business owners? Are you gonna mail them laptops with the ads on loop, HP?

NicodermCQ Takes Beauty Tack to Tackle Smokers

nicodermcq.jpg

Instead of harping a self-righteous "smoking kills" or "quitting can improve your quality of life" message with some skipping in the flowers imagery, NicodermCQ takes a different tack: it hawks its nicotine patch as an age lifter and clarifier.

Clever. We all know what the detriments associated with smoking are; the only problem is that tools for quitting just aren't as cute as the sultry puff-puff. Considering some women already use a patch for birth control, looking upon a nicotine patch as a beauty tool may be just what the doctor ordered.

Candystand Brings Ping Pong to the Detriment of Idle Web Workers

candystand_pingpong.jpg

Considering how often we've moodily blasted them, it's humbling to announce Candystand has put out a game so appealing we've lost half our morning. And you're about to lose the rest of your afternoon. Welcome to their Wrigley's rendition of Ping Pong.

There's also a game called Around the World that's not nearly as much fun but merits checking out because we know how badly you need something to do after lunch.

The iPhone. It Does Everything!

conan_iphone.jpg

It's a camera. It's a movie player. A bottle opener. An electric razor. A mousetrap. Lip gloss. A condiment dispenser. A cheese grater. A treadmill. A children's thermometer. A portable shower. Sideburns. And a condom. Know what it is yet? It's an iPhone spoof courtesy of Conan O'brien. Yes, the much-rumored, yet, if ever, to be released Apple iPhone is the star of this send up of all gadgetry that rules our lives today.

M&M Statue Does Rounds on Hudson for M&M Avatars

mm_liberty.jpg

Shedwa points out there's a green 50-ft idol floating around the Hudson River this morning. Much evolved from the days of the golden calf, idolators these days favour the Lady Liberty-styled M&M.

Come full circle in your worship at Become an M&M, where you can create an M&M avatar with vestiges of you. To really get in the mood, we recommend shoving a few of the peanut butter persuasion into your mouth before zipping off with that mouse.

FAQs Get Interesting on HP TV Site

hp_tv_faq.jpg

If only for the FAQ section, you should check out this HP Digital Entertainment site - created by Source - promoting the company's televisions. yes, we had no idea the company made TVs either. The section is of the usual click and chat variety but the fun picks up in th FAQ section, the area most sites simply serve up dry answers to dry questions that aren't the ones you were interested in anyway. Here, HP has fun. Or as much fun as a conservative company like HP can have without taking its clothes off. The section serves up the answers game show style and the talent selection Source made was a very good one for this effort.
