CareerBuilder Hopes to Light Farts on Fire During Super Bowl

careerbuilder_fart.jpg

Two guys. In cubicles. Giggling. One lights his farts on fire. The two giggle like seven year olds while a woman between them is annoyed. When the boss walks up, she's momentarily gleeful the two will be chastised for their childish behavior. Instead, the boss hands his lighter to fart boy so he can continue shooting flames out of his ass. The woman? Well, she is not pleased.

This has to be harassment of some sort, right? I mean it's two guys, no, three, against a woman. And the guys are being very disrespectful of the woman's olfactory space. This is just wrong. Where's the cause group uprising over this one? Where's the Association of Humorless Hoes? Feminists For A Fart-Free Workplace? Gays Against Gag-Worthy Gaseousness? Bitches Against Boisterous Boys?

Oh the horror of it all!

This travesty is one of a few potential CareerBuilder commercials the company has released for people to vote on for airing during the Super Bowl.

BBC' Knowledge Hopes to Avert Idiocracy

bbc_knowledge.jpg

With the tone of a 42Below commercial and the logic of If You Give A Mouse A Cookie, this new commercial from the BBC which promotes its Knowledge program is a panoply of random facts such as the fact pencils can dram a line 56 kilometers long, a full moon is nine times brighter than a half moon and a snail can sleep for three years. Who knew?

The campaign comes from the appropriately named Three Drunk Monkeys

Guys: Clean Your Dirty Balls With Axe Detailer

axe_detailer.jpg

This double entendre-filled Axe "commercial" illustrates how guys can keep their "balls" clean. There's really nothing else to say about this one other than, damn, those are some seriously dirty balls.

Bras Big Enough to Hang From A Building Need A Big Washing Machine

OK so if a bra was so big it needed to be hung from a 30 story building to dry, wouldn't you want to meet the woman who wore such a bra? OK so that has nothing to do with this new commercial from Young & Rubicam for LG which wants us all to know their new washing machines are HUGE!

But if for some unknown reason you did want to meet the woman who wore a bra this big, she might look something like this.

Wanna Laugh? Watch These Fart-Fueled Commercials

There's nothing like a good fart joke to break up the seriousness of the day. And there's nothing like a collection of the Most Flatulent Food Commercials to make one break out into laughter in a public cafe while trying to write a piece about the Most Flatulent Food Commercials. Believe us, it's not easy. People must think we're insane.

But go ahead. You try to watch these commercials without snickering. You won't be able to do it. In fact, you'll likely have your co-workers crowding around your cubicle sharing in the farty goodness of it all. At least you hope they do or else they'll all think it's you pumping out the farty goodness.

Doritos Perpetuates Male (And America's) Idiocy

doritos_super_bowl_smackdown.jpg


Here's
one of the Doritos Crash the Super Bowl XLIV commercials. Called The Smackout, it's predictably idiotic. You know the concept. Girlfriends sit by while boyfriends perform stupid stunts as if they were five year old retards bullies on the playground during recess. No wait, five year olds aren't stupid, they're just young and inexperienced. When 30 year old guys do this sort of thing, it becomes clear why America trails the rest of the world in IQ.

This commercial's only redeeming quality? Cleavage.

If You Want to Commit Suicide, Audi Can't Help You

audi_exhaust_suicide.jpg

This is, by far, the most twisted method used we've ever seen to sell a car. Of course, this isn't really selling a car because this isn't a commercial. It's spec work from a director touting his directorial abilities.

Akin to suicidal robots selling GM cars aan bombers selling Volkswagens, this spec work touts Audi's diesel goodness by illustrating its clean technology filters out all the bad stuff tail pipe suckers look for when choosing this mode of death.

Maybe the power windows instead? Nope.

The Census is Really, Really Friendly. Honest.

census_2010.jpg

We really, really like the new Census 2010 campiagn from Draft/FCB. Five commercials tell the story of Americans from different backgrounds, how they view life in America, their dreams and aspirations and how the Census can help them realize those dreams.

The campaign is the furthest thing you'd expect from a government agency, no less one that's supposed to be all about numbers, facts, figures and other boring and mundane stuff like that.

The spots were directed by Uber Content's Jason Kohn and can be viewed here.

Dryer No Match For NHL Hockey Player

nhl_dryer.jpg

Sort of like those weepy Olympic back story montages with a little bit of Friday Night Lights tossed in, this new work from Gotham Inc. for Reebok's Speedwick training apparel line lets us peek inside the basement of the Cole Harbor home in which NHL player Sidney Crosby grew up.

Complete with the classic parents sitting at the kitchen table interview, Crosby takes on teammate Maxine Talbot in a game of whack the dryer. It's a bit of commemoration to the actual dryer beat the crap out of as a child. The dryer's now in Nova Scotia's sports hall of fame.

The work was directed by Murderball's Henry Alex-Rubin.
