You're Gonna Be Clappin' When You Hear Eminem Rappin'

There's a lot of ways to sell a CD but we happen to like this way the best. The infomercial. With Vince. Did you know a CD can slice, dice serve as a coaster? You can also put it on your hoes. And yea, that is spelled correctly.

Marisa Miller Does Tom Cruise For Guitar Hero

marisa_miller_black_dress_cleavage.jpg

In 2008, a hot model rockin' out in lingerie and her underwear Risky Business-style was deemed too risque for TV. Would that hold true today in 2010? Watch this Guitar Hero ad with supermodel Marisa Miller and let us know.

Apparently, it aired in Britain to no fanfare. Is America still too puritanical? Or are we right to keep smoking hot models far, far away from the eyes of horny 14 year old boys?

Thoughts?

There's Not Enough Shakira in This Univision Campaign

1254130923_shakiras_ass.gif

Barely making an appearance in this new Univision commercial that touts the network's exclusive Spanish-language coverage of the 2010 FIFA World Cup, Shakira sings "Waka Waka (Esto es Africa/This Time for Africa)," the official World Cup song and Univision's official theme for all of its coverage of this world-class event.

All the "cultural richness" and "exciting soccer moments" make their way into this :30. Additional campiagn elements will include print, outdoor, in-theater, radio, online and mobile. Hopefully we'll see more of Shakira in those media.

The ad might have been a bit more effective had it featured Shakira's best asset as illustrated in the accompanying image.

Media includes the NBA finals on ABC and such online sports sites as ESPN.com, SI.com, FoxSports.com, SportingNews.com, and Sports.Yahoo.com.

It's like Britney Spears decided to do a video inside a bird cage. Oh wait. That's not Britney Spears. It's TMZ's naughty girl dujour Miley Cyrus performing her new song, Can't be Tamed, inside, yea, a bird cage.

Yup. Like every starlet before her, Miley is now proclaiming, "I'm not a kid. I'm a hot pop star and I'm gonna be bad!" Billy Ray, she's fleeing the coop.

Wait, why are we even talking about a Miley Cyrus video? What does this have to do with advertising? Nothing except for the fact production company Mothership and visual effects company Digital Domain helped create the video.

Wait. That still has nothing to do with advertising.
