Here's a funny one. Ever been in that painful situation in which you say something to your significant other you wish you could take back? Well, Fallsview Casino Resort understands and is leveraging that notion in its ongoing campaign. The latest entry takes us to the beach where a man doesn't quite respond appropriately to his wife/girlfriend's statement, "I can't believe this bikini still fits me."
But thanks to a little luck and a coconut, our man is rescued from having his nuts handed to him on a platter. Toronto-based Blammo Worldwide created the campaign.
In the self-generated controversy category this morning we have a new campaign from lingerie outlet The Lake and Stars which features a mother and daughter posing together while modeling lingerie. The "controversy" centers on the likelihood of a mother and daughter hanging out together while clad in lingerie.
Defending the campaign, The Lake and Stars designer Maayan Zilberman said, "A lot of the themes that we're dealing with are about psychology between women as they're growing up and dealing with family politics or women in the workplace. There's no shock value here. We're not trying to make people feel uncomfortable in order to provoke dialogue. We're just trying to confront some of these issues that I think people aren't really talking about so much."
Call us crazy but is there really a need to start a dialog about mothers and daughters hanging out together while wearing lingerie? Of course not. This is yet another attempt by a fashion brand to "shock" and "surprise." Excuse us while we doze off for a short nap.
21-year-old The only Way is Essex reality star Amy Childs has been tapped as the new face of Ultimo and will be pimping the brand's new line of lingerie, Bra Queen. Amy, of course, looks great but there may soon be more to Amy than currently meets the eye.
When Amy was 18, she wasn't happy with her curves or lack thereof. She decided to undergo the knife and boost her bra size from 32A to 32D. Which is all well and good when it comes to modeling for a lingerie brand which specializes in bras B-DD cup. But poor Amy, who is seemingly obsessed with having even bigger breasts, is going to size herself out of a job when she, as reports would have it, undergoes the knife again to boost her boobs to 32GG.
Of the desire for hugeness, Childs said, "I love having big boobs but I'm ready to make them even bigger. I'm planning to become a GG cup - I want to end up being bigger than Jordan."
Anyway, there's your pointlessly prurient ad babe story of the day.
Quite racy and probably NSFW comes a collection of 36 ads for Hubba Wheels which, simply, are wheels for skateboards. Heavily leveraging the brand name Hubba, the campaign takes on an in-your-face, hubba-hubba approach with ad after ad filled with bodaciously-boobed babes wearing next to nothing.
With porny headlines like "hit me with your best shot" and "nice and round. no flat spots here," the campaign is a perfect fit for youthful, hormonally charged boys who skate by day and wish they were getting laid by the bodacious babes in these ads by night.
Be forewarned. There are briefly exposed NSFW nipples in this Halloween horror-themed video from Agency Provocateur. But it's definitely worth watching. In the spot, a women gets a phone call Scream-style and is then attacked/haunted by hotties in lingerie whose mission, it seems, is to induct the woman into their cabal of lingerie-clad horror hotties. Entitled Fleurs Du Mal, the video was directed by Justin Anderson and produced by Epoch London.
It's Halloween, right? Well that, of course, means it's time for spoofing horror classics. All of them. Most primarily, though, the hot chick fleeing a demented serial killer scenario. But this being a commercial, there's a happy ending and it's bought to us by Axe.
According to the hottie in this Lynx photoshoot video, "men can be a bit dozy at times and forget things. You know...put too many sugars in your tea or forget what your favorite drink is or forget to record your favorite TV program." Anyway for more Lynx-sponsored boy-bashing bimbo babble, check out this video.

This one's a month old but it's so weird it's worth sharing. It comes to us from the freaky folks over at Orangina and is entitled L'Ours Orangina vs La Bimbo. It involves a giant bear (well, a man in a bear suit) who tackles a, well, bimbo, as she walks down the sidewalk talking on her phone. And that's it. Right in line with Orangina's usual silliness. And there's a whole series of these videos with the bear randomly tackling people.
It's been a while since we've heard from Wonderbra but today brings news that 20-year-old Slovakian model Adriana Cernanova has been named the new face of the brand replacing Eva Herzigova and Dita Von Teese.
Of Cernanova's selection, Wonderbra Marketing Manager Martina Alexander said, "We're really excited to launch Adriana as our new face. We were looking for a fresh new face that would embody the true spirit of Wonderbra as well as someone who could grow and develop with the brand."
And of her participation as the new face of the brand, Cernanova said, "It is important to always have nice underwear and Wonderbra is special in that way because it makes you feel even sexier."
