Remember all the uproar last year surrounding the exposure of Jennifer Love Hewitt's cavernous cleavage in ads for Lifetime's The Client List? Well, that will pale in comparison to the promotion the network is out with for the sophomore season of the series in which Hewitt "services" customers at a massage parlor called The Rub.

In the promotion, the curvaceous Hewitt can be seen seductively displaying her smoking hotness while wearing not much more than her underwear.

Sports Drink Maker Does DollarShaveClub Ad

OK, so it's not a shot for shot "homage" of DollarShaveClub's ad but it's the same concept; founder wanders through low key office/warehouse talking about the wonders of the product while dropping witty reparte and passing by randomly weird situations.

In this ad, Skratch Labs (wacky name for a sports drink company) co-founder Aaron delivers the very DollarShaveClub-like message that's all down homey and touts the brand's focus on natural ingredients.

We suppose everything is ultimately a copy of something else so to complain is really just a waste of breath, right?

bugles_canada.png

Remember Bugles? Bugles is that weird, odd shaped snack from General Mills that's been around since 1966. The snack you used to stick on your fingers like a thimble or nails.

Toronto-based Cossette created a campaign to revitalize the nostalgic brand and make it fun and top of mind again. Playing off this insight it was a novelty snack for many kids, the concept was to advertise Bugles as a game, rather than a snack. And so the snack has become The Game That You Can Eat!

Six quirky web videos take a look at the snack and just how much fin it can be.
