MINI Mocks Anthony Weiner With 'Carlos D. Motor' Twitter Account


Having a bit of fun at the expense of sext-o-holic Anthony Weiner, the folks over at Butler, Shine, Stern & Partners created this MINI ad which they tweeted from a Twitter account they created called @CarlosDMotor. "Wanna get your hands on my stick?"

The ad and the tweet mocks the pseudonym Weiner chose for himself, Carlos Danger, when he sent naked pictures of himself to younger women.

With just 37 followers, the @CarlosDMotor Twitter account isn't gaining much ground but, hey, it's a nice diversion on a Friday.

Underwear Brand Paints Politicians on Brazilian Boobs


You've gotta love breastvertising. After all, who doesn't love breasts? Men can't help but ogle them and turn into blithering idiots in their presence. Women can't help but stare so as to size up their own assets. Frankly, with everyone on the planet obsessed by them, it's the perfect ad median.

So it makes perfect sense that every once in a while a brand decides to capitalize on our boob obsession with some witty advertising. This time, it's Brazilian lingerie brand Hope that's having a bit of fun on a few pairs of pendulous breasts with some political figures.

Google Ads Favicons to AdSense Ad Units


- Google has added favicons to its AdSense ad units.

- Awesome advice for those looking to become a social media guru:)

- Here's more data that support Apple's latest ad campaign is a failure.

- Seems a couple of ad ladies are miffed over the fact Nike doesn't sell shoes in women's sizes and aren't designed appropriately for women. Need more pink, we guess.

- AOL plans to launch an ad-tech upfront with a focus on programmatic. AOL CEO Tim Armstrong says,"It's essentially a machine upfront. We believe you will have an upfront commitment cycle that will rival TV."

- Not everyone is a fan of the Dove Real Beauty campaign. Predictably, it's a fashion form founder who has become a vocal critic of the campaign.

Vegas Nightclub Promotes With Vine-Like, Double Entendre-Laden Videos


O'Keefe Reinhard & Paul, working (according to the press release) "with the subtlety of a jackhammer" for Las Vegas nightclub, The Act, has crafted a series of double entendre-laden, Vine-like (love that new descriptor?) videos to promote the club.

Three videos include the headlines, "We trim the green, you putt the birdie," "We mix the frosting, you lick the spoon" and "We oil the trumpet, you blow the notes."

And yes, the double entendres are exactly what you think they would be.

Bookstore Chain Helps You Sleep With Your Favorite Book Characters


Books? Actual printed books? People still buy those things? Apparently so. Otherwise this ACW Grey-created campaign for Israeli bookstore chain Steimatzky is a total waste of money.

Whether or not it's wasted ad spend remains to be seen but one thing is clear; this is one very creative ad campaign. The work centers on print which carries the headline "The Right Book Will Always Keep You Company." The visuals then convey the headline quite literally by placing characters from well known novels in bed with readers.

Yes, yes, we realize this could kick up quite a different set of scenarios given racier book titles but let's keep things innocent for now.

Insane Runaway Bride and Groom Save Betrothed From Life of Misery in Silly Nissan Note Ads


This is, perhaps the worst and most annoying "stunt commercial" ever created. TBWA/G1, rather than create your typical virtual test drive video for the Nissan Note, came up with a scenario in which either a bride or a groom bails on their wedding and gets picked up by a person taking the Note for a test drive. What ensues is some of the most grating, insipid, and utterly silly acting we have ever seen in a commercial of any type.

As you watch each of two video (one for the bailing groom and one for the bailing bride) you come to realize it's not these two who are saving themselves from a life of misery; it's their betrothed who are escaping unscathed.
