Bad Weather Won't Stop High Heels, Red Lipstick...Or Lexus From Exuding Style

luxus_walk_the_walk.png

El Segundo's Team One, along with Serial Pictures Director Jonas Akerlund, have come up with a message for Sandy...and any other kind of weather that might crimp your style; don't even try. Because, according to this commercial, stylish is stylish no matter what Mother Nature thinks.

Though we think prancing about in high heels in the middle of a snow storm is a bit much, we aren't going to complain. We'll take any chance we can get to watch a hot women in high heels, a mini dress and flaming red lipstick saunter down the sidewalk. We're easy to pleas that way.

Megan Fox Leaves Booty at Home in Brainy Acer Ad

megan_fox_acer_dolphins.png

Seemingly uninterested in the prospect of playing yet another hottie with a hot body - this time a character who wears her underwear in space - Megan Fox has higher aspirations; marine Biology and the invention of a technology with which to speak to dolphins.

Yes, as a follow up to the brand's wacky outing with Kiefer Sutherland, Acer is out with another Mother London-created spectacle which focuses on Fox's desire to become a "brilliant" scientist with, of course, help from Acer's Aspire S7 laptop.

Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody Now Sells Gum

trident_fresh_bohemian_rhapsody.png

Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody. A classic with such staying power it will likely be played as we earthlings launch our first armada of Starships into space some hundred years or so from now. But, for the time being, Brazil's F/Nazca Saatchi & Saatchi has put it to use in a new commercial for Trident.

To illustrate the refreshing, full flavor of Trident Fresh, a man experiences a bit of Queen while visiting an otherwise very quiet pet shop. Produced by Stink Sao Paulo, the :60 is filled with a menagerie of digitally animated pets that deliver full bore Bohemian Rhapsody.

We last saw Bohemian Rhapsody bring bravura to an ad for the new Cosmopolitan in Vegas.

A little Old Spice. A little DollarShaveClub. And a little, well, just odd. Here's some new work from Quebec agency 32 Mars for cold remedy medicine GOLDaid featuring a hot French guy wearing next to nothing. Our man attempts all kinds of cold remedies before he turns to GOLDaid. Mustard massage. Spicy Soup. And a full immersion ointment bath. But, in the end, it's GOLDaid (with help from the internet) that brings relief.

TV Fail Causes Anarchy and World Disorder

Remember all those studies that told us TV rots the brain, causes anxiety, makes you fat and causes a whole host of other problems? Well, perhaps it's the opposite. In this Scholz & Friends-created German commercial for TV provider Saturn, we see the devastation and disaster caused by poor TV reception.

Is TV really this important to us?

The Worst Halloween Ad You Will Ever See

chainsaw_psycho.png

Here is, perhaps, the dumbest Halloween-themed ad you will ever see in your life. It's cheesy, illogical and, well, just stupid. Yes, it follows the tried and true approach of people helping others when they really shouldn't but this effort is so lame you can't even get to the notion it's supposed to be funny.

Created by aftermarket additive brand Gold Eagle in partnership with crowdsource video company, Poptent, the spot, Chainsaw Psycho, aims to spoof the 1974 cult classic, Chainsaw Massacre. But all we get is further proof crowdsourcing always results in lame-ass, unprofessional work that should never see the light of day.

Dell Helps Business Achieve Great Outcomes

dell_outcomes_commercial.png

I had a Dell. It served me well for six years. An Inspiron laptop. But now I have an Apple MacBook Pro. Love it. Doesn't mean I don't like Dell but I do like the MacBook better. None of which really matters but all of this popped into my head when viewing Dell's new Dell Outcomes commercial created by Y&R and produced by B-Reel.
