Porn Network Promises Bad Acting Delivered by Big Breasted Bimbos

amour_cosette.jpg

OK, so there's no redeeming value to these ads for Canadian adult entertainment network Amour apart from reveling in the irony of actresses doing a good job acting poorly. Created by Cossette, we see a trio of bimbettes doing their best work. Which is to say, really bad acting. Which, of course, is what good porn is all about. Which, as we all know, people don't watch for the acting. Which, as it turns out, is why this is such a great campaign.

LG Puts McGruber Into Iron Man 2

iron_man_2_lg_ally.jpg

This is funny and stupid all at the same time. Funny because it's always fun to watch people act like idiots in a crisis situation. Stupid because in this day and age of mobile connectivity, people would actually engage in this sort of idiocy during a crisis.

But funny and stupid go hand in hand here because we're talking about a commercial. And if there's one thing commercials do well it's making people look stupid so the rest of us can laugh at them.

Somewhere in this idiotic hilarity is a promotion for the LG Ally and Iron Man 2.

Logo Liked, Bad Work Costs More Than Good

- Though many hate it, we kinda like the new United Airlines/Contenental logo.

- The One Club will be host its Second Annual Creative Week in New York City from May 10 to May 16, 2010.

- Hey we like this promotional video for the Seattle International Film Festival.

- Here's the latest from ESPN' s World Cup "One Game Changes Everything" campaign promoting the FIFA World Cup in South Africa.

- Never date a Flyers fan even if she shaves her mustache.

- A long diatribe in Ad Age on the topic that bad work costs more than good.

Hornitos Tequila Makes You Horny For Cougars and Hotties

hornitos_pool.jpg

Spotted. That man/woman who plays that creepy Mormon gangster on HBO's Big Love. He/She helps a guy get off worked so he can...ahem...get off with a couple of hotties hanging at the pool table. Hmm. How very un-Mormon-like.

It's all part of a Hornitos tequila campaign dubbed Purer Than Your Intentions. In another commercial, a guy calls the cougar he met last night only to be surprised at who she turns out to be.

Short and sweet. Just the way we like it.

Yawn. Ford. Mustang. City.

mustang_stardust.jpg

Car drives through city.

Honest.

That's it.

Because that's all that happens.

Thanks Team Detroit and Stardust. Oh, and Ford.

Oh and there's this from the release: "The collaboration between Ford, Team Detroit and Stardust has dropped something kick ass into the conversation."

Yea. Someone actually said that.

Eastpak Loves Little People

eastpak_little_people.jpg

Hmm. After viewing this new Eastpak campaign from Satisfaction in Brussels, one might think it's an early tie in with the next Transformers movie. That or the brand is trying to become the latest fashion-wear for skateboarding little people who love to rock.

Or, take note cause groups, Eastpak is saying it's perfectly OK to stuff a little person inside a back pack and watch them do silly things as if they are some new form of entertainment. But hey, overseas, they aren't as outrageously politically correct as we are here in the States. They have no problem referring to the people in the ad as "our pint-sized cast of characters." So it's all good.

You can view the ads here, here and here.

Lip Gloss Will Give Your Twin An Orgasm

deborah_milano_lip_gloss_commercial.jpg

We've got Catholic school girls. We've got pleated plaid skirts. We've got twins. We've got a twin taking a shower. We've got another twin having an "orgasm" in the middle of class. Sounds like a beer commercial, right? Nope. Just an Italian lip gloss ad.

Human Musical Puppets Illustrate Lipton-Powered Creative Process

lipton_lalo_shifrin_biscuit.jpg

If you appreciate the skill of digitally removing stunt gear, you'll love this new Lipton Yellow Label commercial from DDB Paris and Biscuit Filmworks. And if you appreciate the process of scoring a popular orchestral piece such as Lalo Schifrin's Mission Impossible theme, then you'll love this visualization of the creative process. Or if you just love the notion of people being controlled as if they were puppets, you'll love this commercial as well.

Puke-Worthy Music Wins Girl, Sickens Puppy Dogged Suitor

trax_magazine_crooner.jpg

There's one at every party. Some slacker/hipster dude who uses his "musical skills" to cock-block his way into the pants of the party's sweetheart...much to the chagrin of the guy who really should get the girl. The clean shaven one. The one without unkempt hair and goofy glasses. The one without the cheesy pick up moves. The one who has actual musical taste. Or at least the kind of musical taste French music magazine Trax touts.

Witness the pain our cock-blocked one must endure as his girl is wooed by this hipsteresque horror and his brand of emo lust.

79 is the New 69

79_new_69.jpg

He's 79 and she was born in 79. Hey, what's wrong with that? A man can date a younger woman can't he? It's a free country. Why should there be limits on that sort of thing. Besides, what man wouldn't want to be with a younger woman if he could?

Wait, what were we talking about? Certainly not the Neanderthal nature of man and their inability to appreciate anything but a barely legal, bootylicious piece of ass in a thong bikini with nothing smaller than a set of 34DDDs.
