In an effort to align itself with greatness, Jockey is out with a new campaign entitled "Supporting Greatness" that's all about, well, supporting the greatness of over achievers one great leap at a time.

The campaign showcases the "legacy of great men wearing Jockey" - as Babe Ruth, Buzz Aldrin and General George Patton, who appear in various versions of the ad, were, we're told, all known to have worn Jockey during moments in their lives when they achieved greatness.

ALDI, the discount grocery chain that's sort of related to Trader Joe's, is out with a new BMF-created campaign that answers the all-consuming question, "Does a bear shit in the woods?" Well, according to this ALDI SpokesBear, the answer is a resounding yes.

There seems quite happy with himself tsk tsking viewers for even asking the question. On the other hand, the wall-mounted trout in a second ad isn't so happy having been snubbed for tuna.

Fallon Brings Back the Fanny Pack in Humorous Glue Ad

locite_fanny_pack.jpg

No! No! No! Please no!

High up on the list of fashion disasters is the dreaded fanny pack. It rose to infamy in the late 1980s and early-to-mid 1990s. And, for the most part, you don't see them anymore.

If Fallon Minneapolis has its way, the fanny pack is going to be reborn. At least on YouTube. In a commercial for Henkel's Locite glue. Hopefully, it'll be like trying to make Fetch happen. The fanny pack. Not the campaign. We wish the best for the campaign, Just not the fanny pack. Please, not the fanny pack.
