Kenneth Cole Reaction Launches Fragrance For Idiots

kenneth_cole_idiot.jpg

A new campaign from fashion brand Kenneth Cole has wise words for men who are completely disconnected from all manner of reality when it comes to interacting with the opposite sex. And it's got a new fragrance for these idiots too. Way to portray your customer as a buffoon. And, by association, make everyone realize the only people who will purchase your brand are blithering idiots.

- Check out hottie Miranda Kerr who posed for hubby Orlando Bloom in a photoshoot for rag & bone jeans.

- It's strange and surreal but we love this video for Vanessa Bruno's clothing line.

- And let's not overlook that Bug Circus Generator for Snapdragon.

- Quitting smoking is hard. But it works better if there's a bit of peer pressure involved.

- Not driving drunk can be hard too. Here's one young creative's idea on how to solve the problem. Use a a liquor brand.

- Coke really is it. Well, according to a recent study of the top 100 brand advertisers from Covario which dubbed the brand most "liked"

Saatchi Unveils New Work For Toyota Camry

toyota_camry_2012.jpg

Everybody's waiting for the weekend Loverboy-style. Or at least the race car driver in this new Saatchi & Saatchi-createdToyota Camry commercial is who drives off the track after his pit crew redresses his race car with street legal garb.

In a second spot, we see a man envision all the things he can do and experience with his new Camry as he gets into it and gets ready to drive off to work. Both spots do a nice job illustrating all the features and specs the car has without it getting too feature and spec-y.

In all, there will be six spots. After the initial two, two more will roll out later this year and another two are slated for the Super Bowl and the Toyota Halftime Report.

Women and Wine A Match Made in Heaven

clos_du_bois_kitchen.jpg

Or at least that's what this new Clos du Bois campaign would have us believe. Shot by Kyle Alexander for California-based High Wide & Handsome (these agency names are getting stupid...or ingeniously witty depending upon your viewpoint), the campaign is called Fluent in French and features real women (not quite sure what using fake women in wine ads would be like) in every day settings. The settings are, indeed, lush and inviting.

trey_songz_rocawear.jpg

Rapper/songwriter/producer/actor/whatever Trey Songz (aka Tremaine Aldon Neverson) can be seen in new work for street wear clothing brand Rocawear. In the quick :17 teaser, Songz is seen biting his lower lip in anticipation of getting a bit more from the woman he sees disrobe in front of him. He is then seen climbing on top of her in bed to, well, one assumes, have his way with her superfine body.

Yea. All to sell a little bottle of fragrance. Because, after all, i you smell right you are guaranteed to get laid by the hottest chick in the room.

Kendall Jenner Models For Australian Swimwear Brand White Sands

kendall_jenner_white_sands.jpg

Fifteen year old Kendall Jenner, half sister to the Kardashians, is appearing in a new campaign for Australian swimwear brand White Sands. In the campaign, Jenner will appear wearing a low cut, cleavage-baring one piece and a floral bikini. It's all to promote the brand's Spring/Summer collection.

If you're into 15 year olds, there's much more of Kendall to see here. Is 15 too young to parade around scantily-clothed for an ad campaign? Should girls be required to wear burlap sacks until the age of 18?
