Clear Windshield and Navy Beans Key to Safe Driving

apple_auto_glass.jpg

There's a few ways to sell auto glass replacement. Most are boring and forgetful. While this Apple Auto Glass campaign from Jan Kelly Marketing may not end up becoming the most memorable, it gets points for being one of the strangest. By associating meticulousness, safety conscious behavior with a dented windshield, Apple Auto Glass gives us reason to remember. That or we'll just be continuously reminded there are just a lot of weird people in this world.

Muscular Man Boobs Scare Up Planet Fitness Membership

planet_fitness_pow.jpg

You know when you see some street freak or maybe it's even your friend acting so beyond weird that you blurt out, "what planet are you from?" Well, Planet Fitness has tapped into that sentiment and in its first commercial for the client, Mullen gives as yet another example of the "what planet are you from" scenario.

In the ad, we see a a guy signing up to join Planet Fitness. But, he's just not any guy. He's a bit off. He's a bit full of himself. He's a bit in need of the guys in white coats with a strait jacket. But the cute Planet Fitness employee doesn't freak out. She just sits quietly as this man does, apparently, what he needs to do to make himself feel he's the man he really is.

Bali Prevents Collapse of Civilization by Concealing Nipples

bali_concealer.jpg

While there's absolutely nothing wrong with the female nipple, it would seem their presence will usher in the demise of society. It's as if civilization as we know it would end at even the slightest hint of nipple protruding from under a woman's clothing. Which, it seems, is why Bali is out with a new line of "concealer" bras with "revolutionary concealing petals for complete modesty." Because, God forbid, we'd never want any human to see what the human body actually looks like.

So ladies, if society has put so much pressure on you that you feel you have to perpetuate the charade nipples don't exist or if you're just shy or you just think your nipples are way too big, Bali has come to your aid. Need to conceal? Bali is for you.

Broccoli Saves Parachuter's Life

parachute_broccoli.jpg

Who knew? The Television Bureau of Canada (TVB) and john st., Toronto has just revealed that a 5-week campaign featuring the virtues of broccoli, was not for broccoli at all. Instead, it was to prove that television advertising can sell anything.

Back in January 2010, a TV campaign aired for broccoli pitting its "miraculous" health benefits against other so-called miracles. After just five weeks on air, without any other form of communication or marketing efforts, the "Miracle Food" TV campaign garnered some serious attention. Fan-created Facebook pages attracted over 20,000 followers and broccoli sales were up 8% over the previous year. The most rewarding metric of all was the extra 188,574 pounds of broccoli that went into grocery carts across Canada the month.

The TVB's "Miracle Food" campaign, via john st., Toronto, consisted of three broadcast spots, directed by OPC's Brian Lee Hughes, which point to TheMiracleFood.ca and a post-campaign print ad revealing the campaign.

See one of the three commercials here or below.

Diesel Continues Stupidity With Flabby Ass Sneaker Kick

diesel_kick_ass.jpg

Thanks to Copyranter who subjected us to watching a less than tight ass wobble for twenty seconds...in slow motion...after having been kicked by a Diesel sneaker, we have no choice but to share the jiggle with you. If only to help remove the imagery from our mind.

that said, you've got to love a brand that comes right out and says what it's products are good for. In this case, Deisel's sneakers are no good for running. But they are very good for kicking asses.

For more ass kicking, see Diesel's giant sneaker on wheels kick a giant ass on wheels.

Be Stupid. Be Very, Very Stupid.

Dana Ford Gives Us 1-900-Buy-A-Car

ill_hanner_dana_ford.jpg

Video blogger Jill Hanner is in a few commercials for Tri-State area Dana Ford car dealer. In one, looking all 1-900 dial-a-date sultry-like, she seductively coos, "Wanna save even more? Text the word 'fusion' to me, Jill at 50123. I'm waiting for your text."

Of course some creep called the car dealer asking if he could have Jill's phone number so he could call her.

Hanner was an "agent" for Ford's Fiesta Movement campaign which gave Ford Fiestas to 100 social media elite so they could record their every experience with the car during a 6 month period.

Warning: This Commercial Hurts

frosty_jack_cider_sit.jpg

Ever get up in the middle of the night to have a little snack and end up making so much noise you wake up your partner? Well the guy in this Frosty Jacks Cider commercial makes a lot of noise, wakes up his lady and ends up accidentally sitting down on something not quite designed to say upon.

Of course, it being the middle of the night, the item sat upon might just become a bit of a toy if the couple turn out to be adventuresome.

So Yea, The New Megan Fox Armani Ad is Out

megan_fox_stomach_emporio_armani.jpg

While we're not all that excited about it - which is odd because, well, we're usually very easy to excite - the new Megan Fox commercial for Armani is out and the internet is slathering all over it. Which, of course, is totally understandable given the unbelievable hotness of Fox.

Called The Tip, we see Fox open a hotel room door to let a handsome waiter in who proceeds to set her dinner up while Fox changes out of her robe and into her jeans...in full site of the waiter...who does all he can to take as long as he can to set up her dinner so he can admire Fox as she changes.

When she finishes changing, perfectly time with when the waiter finishes setting up the table, Fox presents the man with a tip. Of course, he turns it down because, well, he's already received the best tip any waiter could have received.

That said, we hate her tattoos.
