PETA Says Veggies Give You A Big Cucumber

peta_firm_fresh.png

In an ad that caused on one YouTube commenter to wonder whether or not "PETA is secretly run by the American beef industry as part of a conspiracy to scare people away from vegetarianism," we are graced with a collective of delicious (or scary depending upon your viewpoint) vegetables dangling as if epic manhood ripe with veggie-fueled stamina which cause a chorus of women to sing, "Give it. I want it. I take it. I got it."

This is, perhaps the funniest and, at the same time, most horrifying work we have ever seen from PETA.

Over at BuzzFeed, Copyranter makes a great point about a recent breast cancer awareness ad from Lowe Porta, Santiago writing, "So, the spot is targeting men. Fine. What do you think the number of male viewers who jerk off to the ad will be compared to the number of male viewers who actually ask a woman to get a breast exam?"

Alex Bogusky Attacks Soda Brands With Parody Video

CapturFiles-Oct-10-2012_12.38.52.jpg

Since he once worked on the Coke business while at Crispin Porter + Bogusky, one could argue Alex Bogusky is being hypocritical in creating an anti-soft drink video for the Center for Science in the Public Interest. The four minute video, which features Coke-like polar bears, is a litany of facts and figures about how sugar is wreaking havoc on humans.

Or, one could argue he's simply providing awareness to the other side of the story; the story told by various cause groups that don't have enough clout to counter the billions spent on messaging by soft drink brands.

Belgian School Girls Forced to do Hard Labor

CapturFiles-Oct-10-2012_11.57.53.jpg

Well this would certainly be a surprise. At several Belgian schools, Duval Guillaume pranked the girls into thinking they would be doing something special for the day while the boys headed to class. Well after thinking they'd be doing something fun, the girls were informed they'd be peeling potatoes, washing floors and cleaning toilets. Of course, they hated it.

When asked why they were being made to do these tasks, they were told, "Because you are girls." And when the boys wondered where the girls were, they were told, "The girls do girl things and the boys do boy things."

First World Problems Are Not Third World Problems

CapturFiles-Oct-05-2012_10.18.41.jpg

Water Is Life, with help from DDB New York, is out with a new PSA that llustrates just how entitled and lame most of us in the first world are as compared to those in the third. And now that we're mentioning the first and the third world, why doesn't anyone ever talk about the second world? Is there one? If so, who lives in it and, for that matter, where is it?

Anyway, we like this PSA. Watch it and you'll feel like an idiot the next time you bitch about getting pickles on your burger when you asked for no pickles or when your phone charger cord isn't long enough to reach your bed.

Mental Illness No Laughing Matter in This Video

stand_up_kid.jpg

A new PSA for the UK Department of Public Health takes a long, hard look at mental illness and really hits home by illustrating just how unfunny it is how how deeply it can affect one's life. In the video, a student stands up and shares with his classmates just what his life is like. The class, initially laughing at the boy's antics, begins to understand what he's all about and what he's trying to survive. Powerful and engaging.
