She's Wide Open!

mich_touch_football.jpg

You know, it's just not right when a hot girl says to a hot guy in a touch football game, "Throw it to me. I'm gonna be wide open." Sorry, you witty creative. We know what you were thinking when you wrote that line and we know you laughed about it over and over and wondered if you'd get it past the client. Apparently, you did. And you know what? It was funny. Oh, was it for Bud Light? Sorry, we were, once again, distracted. Oh wait. It was Michelob. See the spot here.

ESPN Immerses Sports Fan in New Mobile Sports Service

espn_mobile.jpg

For a spots fan, walking through a city where athletes from every possible sport are doing their thing is heaven and that is exactly what ESPN is telling us in their commercial for its new ESPN mobile service which brings the world of sport to your mobile device. The spot did a perfect job with message and did it in an interesting and not so ordinary way. After all, it''s not very often you see NASCAR vehicles scream down the street. See the ad here.

Ameriquest Kills Its Patient

frame_doctor.jpg

Playing right into our enjoyment of sick humor, the first Ameriquest Super Bowl spot showed a couple of doctors presiding over a patient with cut shots to the patient's husband and daughter. A fly is buzzing around the patient and one of the doctors kills the fly with the those heart paddle things and says, "That killed him" just as the wife and daughter walk into the room. Love that sick humor! However, we forget what the spot had to do with mortgages. See the ad here.

The FedEx ad took place in pre-historic time with a cave man setting a bird free becasue the bird was delivering a package for him. but as soon as he set the bird free, a large creature devoured it. The cave man goes back into the cave and his "boss," who wanted the package delivered overnight, fires him but than man, complains, "FedX isn't invented yet!" He then walks out of the cave, dejected, only to be stomped on by some gigantic elephant foot. Funny. Click More to see the ad.

Whopperettes Create Human Burger King Whopper

OK, we were already to hate the Burger King Brooke Burke Whopperettes commercial until all those Whopperettes started flying through the air, dressed like burger ingredients, and landing face first, one on top of each other, until they formed a Whopper presented by Burke all while that really freaky looking Burger King dude looked on. From Crispin and we like it. See the ad here. And thank you Crispin for making it so easy for us ad types that obsess over this stuff to actually find and view the ad. Much appreciated.

Jessica Simpson's Breasts Are Pizza Hut Bites

jessica_poppin_mix.jpg

Is it just us or are the creative folks behind the Jessica Simpson Pizza Hut ad pulling one over on us? The copy, "These bites are gonna pop right into you" uttered by Simpson as she lears into the eyes of that horned up kid just can't help is feel there's some sort of sexual overtone going on here. Just what bites is she talking about putting into his mouth?

Animals Audition For Spike Jonze Miller Commercials

miller_auditions.jpg

In the works since last Summer, Miller, along with Spike Jonze and Y&R Chicago, has created six commercials featuring talking animals that mock all the animals Budweiser has used in its ads over the years. The "auditions" for the ads, which feature animals babbling on frustrated actor-style, can be viewed here. Who knows. Perhaps they'll appear in the Super Bowl.

Fabio Alert! The Buff-Chested One To Do Super Bowl Ad

fabio_super_bowl.jpg

In a commercial created by Dallas-based TM, Fabio will foist his romance novel persona upon us for Nationwide Insurance, the company's first Super Bowl commercial. The ad, which looks like a shampoo commercial, is replete with romantic cheesiness with Fabio dressed as a gondolier in Venice and over the top imagery of blooming flowers and white horses...all to sell insurance.
