Not Much Kate Upton in Mercedes Super Bowl Ad


So that stupid Super Bowl teaser Mercedes did last week featuring Kate Upton? The one in which she takes on the role of "object of desire" to a bunch of guys washing a car while their tongues wag? The one the Parents Television Council stupidly thought was actually too sexy? Yea, that one. Well it had nothing to to with Mercedes' actual Super Bowl commercial which features a scant six seconds of Upton.

Snickers Bar Calms Freaked Out Robin WIlliams


Hmm. We're not sure it's funny or sad that Robin Williams is appearing in a Snickers commercial. Like Mr. T, it's either because he's a washed up has-been or he's reached cult status. Given Williams' more than decent acting career, we'd like to hope for the latter.

Peter Stormare Helps You Play More Call of Duty


The multi-faceted Peter Stormare has been tapped by 72andSunny for this new Call of Duty Black Ops 2 Revolution video. In the ad, he takes on the persona of The Replacer, the man whose job involves making more time for men to play Black Ops 2 Revolution.

After Stormare notes there will be certain life events that may interfere with your playing time, we see him in several "replacement" scenarios, one of which gives a nod to the scene in Fargo in which he makes use of a wood chipper.

Say what you will about video games perpetuating violence, this ad is funny.
