Christmas has always been a time of joy and celebration for families the world over but lingerie and sex toy retailer Ann Summers wants us all to know Christmas is also very much for adults as well.
In two new videos, one safe for TV and the other NSFW (though no nudity), Ann Summers celebrates the joy of lingerie and what happens when adults celebrate Christmas.
OK. Let's just cut through the crap and get to the nut. When you're name is Nina Agdal and you are a 20-year-old model - or, in most cases, any 20-year-old, you're going to look hot in lingerie. In fact, you're going to look hot in just about anything you wear even if it's the proverbial potato sack.
So when Agdal frolicks about in this new commercial for Aerie telling viewers they'll look sexy in Aerie lingerie it's, well, a no-brainer. Unless, of course, you weigh 300 pounds.
In a role that is quite apropos, model of the moment, Kate Upton, will appear in a Mercerdes-Benz Super Bowl commercial as an "object of desire." Upton, who does not have a license of her own, won't be driving in the ad but is said to represent just how far a person might go to attain their heart's desire.
Heart's desire might be a bit of a highbrow description for the kind of desire most people experience when they think of Upton but we won't quibble.
GoDaddy is continuing it "sexy but not sexy" approach to advertising. The brand changed direction earlier this year when it selected Deutsch to focus on the more serious nature of GoDaddy's business. It did. But not without leaving behind the one thing always present in every GoDaddy ad since the famed Candice Michelle courtroom wardrobe malfunction: scantily-dressed hot chicks.
In the latest bouncing boob idiocy...oh wait...strike that...we love bouncing boobs. The bouncier, the better. Anyway, in the latest bouncing boob...um...bonanza, racktastic Renee Somerfield can be seen tantalizing a poor pooch who's helpless in the presence of Somerfield's pulchritudinous puppies.
The ad is for...wait, what? Oh right, the ad is for Mack Boots. But you'd never know that from simply watching Somerfield's bouncing boobs...uh...we mean the ad.
For its latest zany effort to call attention to its causes, PETA is out with an anti-fur ad featuring a rather bushy Joanna Krupa and the headline, "Fir Trim: Unattractive. Don't Ruin Your Look With Fur Trim" Oh yes, people. We're gonna get some trim tonight but no bush because, well, bush is bad. No, that's not a political statement. It's just the latest bit of sensationalism from a brand who has so fully bought into the sex sells approach to marketing, they have no problem blatantly acknowledging it.
Of the campaign, PETA Associate DIrector of Campaigns Lindsay Rajit said, "Years ago, it was disgraceful for women to show their knees and we all laugh at that today. And I think that some day, nudity will stop being interesting...and when that happens, we will stop using that tactic. But right now, it's a really fun way to grab attention, and get people on the site. And that's why we do it."
PETA. Brining the Muff back to the Dive.
In Portugal, they have no problem whatsoever sexualizing not just advertising but the industry itself. Ah, if only working in advertising where really like this. After all, who wouldn't want to knock out a few creative ideas while bathing in a hottub with a threesome of awesome?
The ideas will be big and the success huge. Hmm. Today seems to be the day for a "size matters" approach to advertising. See the latest from PETA which is currently celebrating big, swinging...vegetables.
In an ad that caused on one YouTube commenter to wonder whether or not "PETA is secretly run by the American beef industry as part of a conspiracy to scare people away from vegetarianism," we are graced with a collective of delicious (or scary depending upon your viewpoint) vegetables dangling as if epic manhood ripe with veggie-fueled stamina which cause a chorus of women to sing, "Give it. I want it. I take it. I got it."
This is, perhaps the funniest and, at the same time, most horrifying work we have ever seen from PETA.
What, really, can we say about this Russian car dealer commercial? We all know that hot women go hand in hand with hot cars but this outing takes that notion and puts it on steroids. This impossibly hot model wraps her hotness around a vehicle in a showroom wearing nothing more that a cleavage enhancing bra and a booty revealing thong. She slathers her body all over the vehicle as if she were about to have an orgasm. This is how they sell c ars in Russia. Oh and we guess you can buy a car with a credit card too.
While it's common for global brands to be given certain leeway in terms of how they represent the brand in individual countries, its less common for one country to publicly comment on what another country chooses to do. But that's exactly what Sony UK did in response to an ad Sony France ran that featured a woman with four breasts and the headline, "Touch both sides. Twice the sensations."
