Lara Stone Gets Naked in Calvin Klein Jeans X Commercial

calvin-Klein_jeans_lara_stone.jpg

Everyone has sex in the middle of a hardtop playground, right? Especially if you're not in school any more, you're a hard-bodied model and it's a Calvin Klein commercial. And if a guy named Fabien Baron directed you and Lara Stone was the object of desire, it's all perfectly plausible. Oh, and let's not forget the thousands of dollars you'll receive in exchange for a few scrapes and bruises suffered during the shoot.

Yea. It's a new commercial for Calvin Klein Jeans. And yea, there's nudity (brief). But it's art. So it's all good, right?

The Unbelievable Hotness of Justene Jaro Sells Nike Air Max 90's

justene_jaro_nike_air_max_90.jpg

OK. We are WIDE awake this morning thanks to Primitive Shoes and import car model Justene Jaro who, bless her soul (body?), has awoken us in ways that are, well, just not fit for publication...even on Adrants. Anyway, filth out of the way, curvaceous cutie Justene Jaro is featured in a two minute promotional video for the 20-year-old Nike Air Max 90.

As if we were watching a long form beer commercial of old or some cheesy auto parts ad in the back of Hot Rod magazine, Jaro's bulbous breasts burst forth, spilling from above and below the confines of her revealing top as it struggles to contain her pendulous pulchritude. Clad only in lingerie..and sometimes ripped Daisy Dukes...Jaro frolicks about on a bed, on a couch and on a set of stairs while wearing, playing with and, yes, seductively licking a pair of Nike Air Max 90s.

Microsoft's Bing Still Trying Not to End Up Like Apple's eWorld

bing_thelma_louise.jpg

Microsoft is out with a couple new ads for Bing. The ads parody movie classics such as Easy Rider and Thelma and Louise. The ads illustrate how each movie's outcome might have changed had the characters had access to Bing.

Alas, revisionist history is just that. And in a world organized and categorized by Google, it's unlikely Bing will amount to anything more than Apple's eWorld did back in the days when AOL ruled the world.

Torpedoes Aren't the Only Danger to A Submarine

specsavers_submarine.jpg

We love Specsavers. More accurately, we love their advertising. If you've seen the submarine movie Das Boot (or the Matthew McConaughey version of it), you'll appreciate this commercial. But you won't see the end coming. Though if you use your imagination and understand that Specsavers ads are always about what can happen if you don't have the right specs, you just might figure it out before the reveal.

Dita Von Teese Strips (Sort of) For Perrier

dita_von_teese_perrier.jpg

Dita Von Teese, the American burlesque dancer who's loved by Europeans, is featured in a new video for Perrier. In the video, the dice are rolled and, depending upon the outcome, Dita will "strip" or lick her lips. It's all very PG-13 and YouTube acceptable. She finishes the video by bathing herself in Perrier, hardly as sexy as, say, milk or oil but, again, this is YouTube.

Said to have been inspired by 1940s-era Hollywood stars as Betty Grable and Bettie Page, Dita was once married to rocker Marilyn Manson.

Gillette Asks How You Like it Shaved

gillette_shaved_how.jpg

Getting about as racy as it can - which isn't really saying much - Gillette surveyed a bunch of women regarding how they like it shaved. But the "it" they're talking about - though you can see it coming a mile away - isn't the "it" some might think, um, it is.

Cleavage Alert! Do Not Watch if Easily Distracted!

vw_macgruber.jpg

There's nothing like cleavage to distract from a message. Well, that along with a MacGyver wannabe and a foreign language to cause one to wonder what the hell is going on in this Volkswagen commercial. Something needs fixing and MacGyver is there to do it...or screw it up totally. That or it's also a Home Depot commercial. Anyway...that's for pointing us to this, AdFreak.

Julia Stiles Debates Merits of Commercial Versus Indi Film Making

julia_stiles_stoli.jpg

When you write about advertising every day, suffering de ja vu every once in a while comes with the job. Today, Julia Stiles is the cause of our ailment. She's in a new Stoli commercial in which she talks to herself and debates the merits of going commercial versus staying indi.

Though the ad is new, we could swear we've seen it before. Maybe it's because we couldn't stand watching Hugh Hefner talk to himself and we conjured Julia instead.Anyway, anytime we can see Julia Stiles is a good time so we're not going to complain.

Hello Ladies. I'm on a Bike. Except I Forgot to Say So

old_spike_bike.jpg

Sequels. Most of the time they're never as good as the original. Yes, there are exceptions but those exceptions are the exception to the rule. We're not clear whether or not this new Old Spice commercial with Isaiah Mustafa is an exception but we do wish he ended the commercial with a sly, "I'm on a bike." Without that catchphrase, it's kind of like an Arnold Schwarzenegger movie in which he doesn't intone, "I'll be back."

Yes, Old Spice is back with Isaiah Mustapha but something's missing. As is usually the case with sequels. Yes, it's a one shot (?) wonder. Yes, it's snarky. But it's just missing that "two tickets to that thing you like" joie de vivre. We can't quite put or finger on it. We still like it. But, alas, it's a sequel.
