hatner_california.jpg

Hmm. William Shatner just can't seen to keep himself away from flames and explosions. Much like that turkey fryer video he did, Shatner can be seen among flames once again in this Visit California commercial created by MeringCarson

The latest entry in the campaign is a spot entitled Dreamers which highlights the fact California has always been a magnet for dreamers who dream big. The ad features singer-songwriter Sara Bareilles, Olympic Gold Medalist Kerri Walsh Jennings, professional skateboarder Bob Burnquist and pro-surfer Rob Machado who let's us know that, like us, he "puts his board shorts on one leg at time."

britney_spears_perfume.jpg

We haven't written about Brittany Spears in years. There was a time she dominated the pages of Adrants. Both because she was very active as a spokeswoman for many brands and because, well, we always had a thing for Britney. She is kind of hot after all, right?

Along with the Alice in Wonderland theme, there are touches of Little Red Riding Hood, The Magic Carpet (with a hot guy), the Wizard of Oz and...Helena Bonham Carter.

The model is question is Rosie Huntington-Whitley and the work was created by RKCR/Y&R for Marks and Spencer. Enjoy.

This Ron Burgundy Dodge Ad Likely Beats the Record For the Number of Brand Mentions in A Single Ad

dodge_ron_burgundy_do_odge.jpg

So by now you've seen quite a few of Ron Burgundy's Dodge commercials, right? The brand gave Will Ferrell broad control over creative in the campaign and the results, given Ferrell's oddball sense of humor, are quite good.

We love this latest entry called Do-dge which must break some kind of record for the number of times a brand name gets mentioned in a :30 commercial.

Whenever sports stars come to Asia, they do an autograph session. But when Dwight Howard came to Manila, adidas, with help from TBWA Singapore, adidas went all in to do something that had never been done before. By coding a new ball-tracking program, adidas enabled Howard to create autographs for his fans with a ball and a court.

Fans were invited to play one-on-one with Dwight, with the movement of the ball captured to create the signature. The signature was then printed onto an adidas shirt, creating a one-of-a-kind piece for the fan to take home.

You are likely all familiar with the Kardashian Kollection which is sold at Sears. A similar collection is being sold in the UK at British chain Lipsy. A new campiagn for that collection was shot shot Terry Richardson who loves to hang with and shoot Kate Upton and other super hot models.

Writing for The Gloss, Julia Sonenshein expected the campaign to consist of the Kardashians "naked and straddling heaps of the clothing" but was pleasantly surprised to discover the campaign is "decidedly un-pervy."

That didn't stop Sonenshein from dubbing the collection "something you'd wear to an 18-and-over club that takes place in an upscale funeral home."

Kate Upton Has Sex With Hot Pocket, Dreams of Snoop Dogg

hot_pockets_kate_upton_snoop_dogg.png

In Kate Upton's latest dalliance with food -- it's like some kind of aphrodisiac for her -- arrives home with her roommate, gets hungry, seductively changes, heads to her bedroom, turns on Larry King, practically has an orgasm while consuming a meaty Pocket and slips into a psychedelic dream featuring Snoop Dogg doing a mashup of Biz Markie's 1989 hit "Just a Friend (You Got What I Need) which ends up "You Got What I Eat."

Now if that isn't a dirty double entendre, we don't know what is. Yea, selling sandwiches with a fantasy in which Snoop Dogg sings to Upton about how much he'd like to eat her.
