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."
Seemingly uninterested in the prospect of playing yet another hottie with a hot body - this time a character who wears her underwear in space - Megan Fox has higher aspirations; marine Biology and the invention of a technology with which to speak to dolphins.
Yes, as a follow up to the brand's wacky outing with Kiefer Sutherland, Acer is out with another Mother London-created spectacle which focuses on Fox's desire to become a "brilliant" scientist with, of course, help from Acer's Aspire S7 laptop.
A little Old Spice. A little DollarShaveClub. And a little, well, just odd. Here's some new work from Quebec agency 32 Mars for cold remedy medicine GOLDaid featuring a hot French guy wearing next to nothing. Our man attempts all kinds of cold remedies before he turns to GOLDaid. Mustard massage. Spicy Soup. And a full immersion ointment bath. But, in the end, it's GOLDaid (with help from the internet) that brings relief.
Over at BuzzFeed, Copyranter makes a great point about a recent breast cancer awareness ad from Lowe Porta, Santiago writing, "So, the spot is targeting men. Fine. What do you think the number of male viewers who jerk off to the ad will be compared to the number of male viewers who actually ask a woman to get a breast exam?"
