Good God! If ever there were an argument for why conference booth babes should be seen and not heard, this is it. David Spark from Spark Minute conducted a duel interview with the Fling.com and iBallers booth babes whose booths were facing each other at the ad:tech conference in San Francisco this week.
Spark very politely made the booth babes look like blithering idiots. Of course, to be fair, booth babes are hired to look good, not to know that much about the company they are representing. The video proved both points.
We snapped some shots of the ladies as well which you can see here. Oh and then there was this picture.
We didn't think it was possible but we might, in fact, be getting bored with Kate Upton flaunting her 34D's for just about every brand under the sun. The latest display of Upton's cleavage comes courtesy of DirecTV which is out with this very odd commercial that's not really about anything at all...except the flaunting of Kate's hotness. And her boobs. Well, she is on a beach and she is wearing a bikini. And she does have big boobs. It can't be all bad, right?
- As agencies get their Facebook Timeline in order, we're bound to see interesting iterations such as this one from Brunner Works.
- Gratuitous ass shot of the day. This one ends with a twist.
- Very strange. Clorox now makes bacon flavored cat litter and cleaning products. Hmm.
- Mazda is out with a new commercial for its 2013 CX-5 crossover SUV. Lee Majors would love it!
- Goodby, Silverstein & Partners Rich Silverstein, founder of Hacking Autism, is out with a trailer for his I Want to Say short. The film takes a look at touch screen technology and how it has help kids with autism.
Here's an interesting twist on the whole notion that AXE actually has something to do with whether or not a woman finds a man attractive. This South African :60 at first pleasantly leads us to believe that in fact, no, Axe does not attract women. It actually repels them. That is until we realize what's actually repelling the hundreds of bikini-clad women running away from the guy showering on this beach. Hilarious, actually.
Really? This is like the Bikini Ad Network or whatever that company was called that hired two hot women to walk around the ad:tech exhibit hall a couple of years ago. So this morning we get followed by @BikiniMarketing. Being the inquisitive type we checked out the profile which led to a website called, yes, Bikini Marketing. Of course, the site is "coming soon" and carries the subhead, "We know waiting is hard..."
Enough double entendres there for you? Likely this site will never see the light of day much like that other one never did either.
This, perhaps, is one of the strangest call for entry promotions you will ever see. Touting the Cannes New Directors' Showcase, this Saatchi & Saatchi London-created video directed by Chris Palmer features an adult film maker who wishes he was making commercials. Watch and see if you can identify all the ad-related references. Funny stuff.
"You could have a pair like Kelly's" if you just pick up a pair of official Sports Relief Socks at your local (if you're in England) Sainsbury today. Yes. Breasts truly can sell anything we ask them to.
So wait, Kelly's been stuffing all these years?
These days, it seems, Kate Upton is everywhere. She's done ads for Carl's Jr., MLB 2K12, Zoo York and others. Now she's pimping headphones for Skullcandy in a new campaign which Mail Online claims won't work because everyone will be staring at Upton's boobs and not the Skullcandy headphones.
Dressed in a tight, tiny bikini top that isn't able to cover much of her prodigious cleavage, this might be very true. Although just how many more Upton campaigns can the market take before we tire of her and the next new shiny object takes hold?
Boy this job is hard work sometimes. FocusClick, a site with the tagline "we do women," grabbed model Christina I. and dressed her in Second Button shirts. Well, more accurately, they tried to dress her in Second Button Shirts and failed miserably. Why? Because Christina's breasts are so jaw-droppingly huge, no shirt could ever completely cover them.
We're not sure who's getting more publicity out of this; FocusClick or Second Button. Frankly, we really don't care. Do you?
And yea, there's much more Christina to see here.
Now here's an interesting one. Canadian telecom brand Manitoba Telecom Services just launched a Dare Vancouver-created campaign to promote its Amour pay per view porn service. With three spots that appear at first to be your typical porny encounter, the campaign reminds viewers that "Fantasies happen but only on Amour Adult TV." It's quite ingenious actually. To see just how easily a fantasy can be shot down. Much like it always happens in real life. Which, of course, is why we have porn so we don't have to be shot down when we're really in the mood to be...ahem...up..
