Walmart Hopes Miley Cyrus Can Bring Some Cool

miley_cyrus_walmart.jpg

In case you were wondering, the Miley Cyrus machine is alive and well. While we'd have to query a bunch of 12 year old girls to know for sure, it seems Miley is on her way to convincing kids it's (shudder) cool to buy clothes at Walmart. Out with her new line of clothing from Max Azria, Miley talks about what clothing means to her and what it was like to work with designer Max Azria.

While far from sluterrific Britney Spears-inspired fashion, Miley says, "This line has inspired me to take chances with what I wear a little bit more."

Ooo. Risky. But moms will be happy there's no belly shirts in this line of clothing.

Some Things Are Better Left Unseen

We really don't need to be reminded what emanates from the rear end's of others but Chinese air freshener TianTian is making it impossible to ignore with a new campaign that brings the formerly silent but deadly to the three dimensional forefront.

Oh yes, that really is a 3D representation of a fart you see coming out of that guys ass. This is just too much to take. No longer will we be able to commute without visualizing a 3D fart coming out of everyone's ass. Thanks a lot TianTian.

Possibly the Happiest Bank Campaign Evar

regions_love_tv.jpg

When was the last time a bank campaign made you feel all giddy and happy? Never? Well you might feel that way after viewing these three spots (here, here and here) for Regions bank created by Luckie & Company. Along with Crossroads Films and director Wayne Isham, the campaign latches on to recent research which finds the U.S. personal savings rate has gone from negative in 2008 to 6 percent today. Hence, Regions is there to give people's savings a home.

Along with the three spots, the campaign includes online advertising, a new microsite, redesigned ATM screens and a branch makeover.

Must have been an interesting gig for Isham. "Now hold that can up, shake it and dance." Over and over and over and over and over...

Even Adrants Thinks This Campaign is Gratuitous

Widex_wicker.jpg

Huh? Did we just write that headline? Are we now going to launch into how the use of sexual imagery is gratuitous, after having defended it (sort of) for years? Yes we are. Why? Not becasue sexual imagery is a bad thing. No. Not at all. But because this particular campaign leaves one with a giant, "You're selling what to who?" disconnect.

Copyranter found a New Zealand-based campaign for Widex hearing aids which employs "a naked hussy and a tattooed, tasseled tranny (I think)." Yea. Seriously.

Peter the Pedophilic Pilot Promotes airtran's Inflight Internet

airtran_peter_graves.jpg

We love this Cramer-Krasselt-created airtran campaign AdFreak points to. Probably because we're old enough to remember the pre-Tom Cruise Mission Impossible television series which starred Peter Graves who, more recently, also starred in the Airplane! movies as a pedophilic pilot.

He's dead-pan perfect in a series of commercials touting the airline's gogo internet service which is now on all planes. Awesome. Too bad it's not free.

But the campiagn is funny. Check it out here.

Oops. David&Goliath Photo Shoot Messes With LAX Traffic Control

dg_rooftop_lax.jpg

Recently, 110 employees of El Segundo-based David&Goliath headed to the rooftop of their building to shoot an ad for their new Brave house ad campaign. All went well until three police cars appeared with officers telling the agency to shut down the shoot immediately.

It seems the multiple flashes and smoke effects were interfering with LAX air traffic control. The agency co-operated and shut down immediately. But not before getting enough shots to make this promotional ad for the agency.

Luckily, that head didn't come from one of the police officers.
