- Keg party on Twitter. May be a mite warm, though.

- Tinseltown jailbait.

- Very Funny Ads is a glowing testament to the following truth: it's not that people don't like ads, it's that they don't like shitty ads. Embrace it.

Newsflash! Site Pimping Erotic Stimulators Crashes. Le Yawn


Yea, it's true. And we have the press release to prove it!. Apparently hoards of people had to check out U.S. Marine Roberto who does a bit of an online strip show to help Ann Summers promote their line of Rabbits. No, not the furry kind.

Who really knows if the site ever did crash. But who cares anyway. Check it out here. Yea. A bit of beefcake for a Wednesday morning.

Asa Bailey and Cream Make Naughty with Saatchi


Asa Bailey and Cream Recruitment tag-teamed to poach a bit of business -- and maybe some creatives, too -- from their new London neighbour: Saatchi & Saatchi.

The pair pretended to "hack" the Saatchi site (its actual site is located at sports subversive scribbles and a video that lends unattractive insight on the big agency's goings-on: how it crushes the dreams of earnest creatives, etc. The video's end promotes Cream Recruitment, but the lower left-hand corner features also subtle pluggery for Asa Bailey Viral Advertising.

Cold, man, cold. Though to be fair, any agency that thought this was socially acceptable behaviour was just begging to have their interns snatched.

Gillette Tackles the Hairy How-Tos


In its latest YouTube campaign, Gillette plays the Sagacious Big Brother for lessons on shaving things you wouldn't ask your actual brother about. Well, apart from maybe the armpits, but hey, we all would've figured that out ourselves anyway; and possibly your head, but only because he probably had to do it for you first.

What we dig about the videos: they're easy to watch, no-nonsense and talk in a chill factual tone. We actually learned stuff. And we don't even need to shave our faces. Nice work by BBDO/New York and Proximity Canada.

'That's Not a Vegetable, That's a Starch.'


Gerber shocks parents into submission: In "Really?" parents on the street discover that the "vegetable" consumed most by the average rosy-faced US toddler is ... wait for it ...

French fries!

After this revelation, each Designated Caregiver looked appropriately shocked and appalled. Yeah, didn't see that coming. It's not like we have a nationwide obesity problem or anything.

It's Not Abuse If It's Consensual. Waivers, Too? Better Still


For client G4, Hal Riney took a little man-on-man BDSM fun and turned it into skin-crawly bruise-based animation.

Each guy was given a stencil of a character, whose likeness was bruised onto their skin in various creative ways: mousetraps, big rubber balls, ass paddles and the like. (If only mummy and daddy were that creative.)

The bruises were then stitched together in consecutive shots and enlivened by the brain-rending voice of YouTube's The Kid from Brooklyn.

Saatchi & Saatchi UK Site Hacked. OK, Not Really


Asa Bailey is up to his stunts again. Claiming to have hacked the Saatchi & Saatchi Uk website. Of course it's all a joke because the site he hacked was, not the real Saatchi and Saatchi UK website.

So why the stunt? Asa has moved his company in right next door to the real Saatchi & Saatchi and wanted to have some fun.Oh, and it's all to promote Cream+, a recruitment company.

Adify Sports the Algo that You Never Dared to Dream Of


Youthfully charming Adify Media launched two promotional vids to illustrate that extra-special intra-personal something you'll get when your remnant ad inventory is placed in its warm, able hands.

The creative is formatted like eHarmony testimonials. Adify's merits are described in a leisurely, quasi-intimate way as both client and account strategist finish each other's sentences, make silly gestures, touch inappropriately and give each other weird sidelong looks when one coolly mentions having tried other algorithms before.

It's all just creepy enough to pass. Our only complaint is that everybody's already done the service-as-soulmate, let's-all-laugh-at-eHarmony thing, so it's got a mildly uncomfortable two-years-tardy feel.

That's cool though. No idea's original, yeah?
