Ad Age Creativity loves it. Buzzfeed (Copyblogger) hates it. We're in the middle somewhere. The premise weakly conveys the product benefit. The lead up is interminably long. The choice of music is questionable. The pay-off is unfunny.
But the spot does contain boobs with full-on erect nipples in a wet t-shirt. So it can't be all that bad, right?
But will it last given our hatred of the nipple?
This Y&R South Africa commercial for Playboy has some fun with men's changing hairstyles over the years. And it isn't shy about implying how women's hairstyles (down there) have influenced men's hairstyles (atop their head).
The spot was directed by Egg Films' Jason Fialkov.
It's been a while since we've seen Kelly Brook in the ad world. Apparently, she's been shoved aside by the latest busty babe of the moment, Kate Upton. The last time we saw Kelly she was writhing with sexual desire as an angel left behind in a Lynx ad.
Now Kelly can be seen in a Philips ad, created by UK-based WDMP, giving a Pete Cashmore look-a-like a shave. It's not your every day barber shop though. Oh no. No fat, graying white men handling the razor. Just Kelly clad in a shiny black leather dress out of which her ample breasts bulge. And this isn't your every day shave either.
Don't worry, Pete. Lisa is way hotter than Kelly!

So how does an NFL cheerleading squad promote its annual eye candy calendar? With a cover of Carly Rae's "Call Me Maybe" while prancing around in bikinis. And, well, yea. There's not much more than that to say about this jiggle-fest.
Hmm. This is a tough one. When we envision the creation of a quality tequila, we don't like imagine it being made in a sterile, unfeeling environment such as a laboratory. But what if that same sterile, unfeeling laboratory process was conducted by a hot-looking woman in a white lab coat who intoned the wonders of "tristallation?"
The campaign was created by Dead As We Know It. Thoughts?
Remember when Brooke Burke was just the hot chick on E! Network's Wild On!? Of course, she's done a lot since then including winning the seventh season of Dancing with the Stars, hosting Rock Star, viral work for Burger King and a Super Bowl ad for Burger King.
Now the the still very hot 40-year-old (my, how time flies!) can be seen in ads for her own line of recently-launched (through BeachMint) lingerie called intiMINT.
Of the campaign, BeachMint CEO Josh Berman said, "We are thrilled to be working with Brooke. She is a like-minded entrepreneur who shares our passion to bring affordable luxury to women and is super passionate about this exciting market."
Taproot India, whose site is still "under construction" (really?) and FOX are out with a humorous new video. The video highlights the fact subtitles are a pain in the ass (among other trouble they cause) and that FOX's new service allows everyone to watch movies in their own regional language. And prevent getting slapped upside the head by a hot woman with nice cleavage.
You may recall the tempest in a teacup that erupted over a Doctor John's Lingerie & Novelty Boutique billboard that appeared in Ogden Utah a while back. It seems the board offended many. So much so that the model on the billboard, Tabitha Contreras, 31-year-old mother of four and her children started feeling the pain.
A model since she was a teen, Contreras told Salt Lake City ABC 4, "I was an outcast, I wasn't welcome and everyone let me know I wasn't welcome. I felt bad that I offended people because I didn't think there was that much skin showing. My first wake up call was, I had my 13-year-old daughter come home and say people at school are saying, 'you're a porn star,' and so of course I was like, 'oh my gosh, what am I doing?'"
The board was taken down a few weeks ago but the pain Contreras feels still lingers.
You can argue this one both ways. Objectifying women to sell stuff, perhaps bad. Women just trying to make a living, not so bad. Watch the video. What are your thoughts?
A mailer sent by the U.S. Senate Federal Credit Union carries the headline, "Got Big Plans?", next to the image of a woman with breasts bulging out of her tight top. Copy includes, Preparing for a life change can be overwhelming...you have to live through it and you have to figure out how to afford it...that's where we come in. U.S. Senate FCU is here to help. We can propose products and services to assist you with financing everything big and small."
Of course the ad spawned a petition, outrage and an apology from the credit union. Pretty typical for just about any ad foisting boobs in your face because, you know, boobs are bad. And the bigger they are, it seems, the badder they are. All we can conclude here is that, when it comes to breasts, size really does matter.
