Ad Banned For Claiming Cream Will Make Your Ass Look Like Mila Kunis'

The headline reads, "Get a body to die for with 50% off body sculpture for 24 hours."

Beyonce Back With Pepsi in $50 Million Deal


Almost ten years ago, Beyonce first appeared it what was, by far, one of the hottest Pepsi commercials ever to air. OK, that may be a bit of an over exaggeration but not to the gas station attendant whose jaw dropped when he watched Beyonce in all her bootyliciousness walk from her car to a Pepsi machine as Crazy in Love played.

Now, ten years later, Pepsi is, again, working with the star in a $50 million deal that will include a new "Live for Now" commercial as well as promotional appearances, her likeness on limited edition cans and a Creative Development Fund that will support Beyonce's various creative endeavors.

Jimmy Fallon to Crowdsource Ford Super Bowl Ad on Twitter


Ford has signed a deal with Jimmy Fallon to help the brand create a :60 for Lincoln that will air during the Super Bowl. Fallon, with his 7 million Twitter followers as opposed to Ford's 172,000 and Lincoln's non-existent 750, will head up a crowdsourcing strategy that urges fans to help Fallon create the ad.

Fallon will direct followers to Steer the Script, a site that explains the promotion. Beginning December 5 with a tweet from Fallon who will pen the beginnings of a script for the :60, followers can reply with their suggestions.

Somehow miraculously a workable script will emerge from what will certainly be a cacophony of idiotic tweets from people who have no idea how to artfully craft a TV script, let alone a coherent 140 character tweet.
