- Yawn. Gisele Bundchen's campaign for Brazilian fashion label Hope has been labeled sexist and pulled from TV. Seriously? In Brazil? The land of booty?
- The 2011 Silicon Valley Film Festival & Awards has announced its 2011 lineup featuring nearly 100 film makers who "celebrate the spirit of Silicon Valley."
- The Swedish Post (post office) has launched a competition to see if Swedes can carry packages as safely as the post office...using an iPhone app.
-Yawn. Hot reporter gives "blowjob" to local politician. It's for Lynx, of course.
- Yo! Send in your Toe Tappy video so you can be featured in the next Coke Zero campaign. What a joke. Easiest dance step ever.
Leave it to Lynx (Axe) to make even the description of rugby super sexy. In a two minute video filled with the slow motion gyrations of lithe, young women dressed in rugby wear that's far from regulation, we learn all about the scrum, the tackle, the lineout, the ruck and the maul.
And that's it. Hot women. Slow motion photography. And you have a branded video that's reached almost one million views within a week.
For additional mundane-made-sexy video, see Heimlich Maneuver Like You've Never Seen it Before and CPR Like You've Never Seen in Before.
Many would classify this as NSFW so be warned. JWT London has created a PSA for the Male Cancer Awareness Campaign. The ad, which features The Sun Page Three girl Rhian Sugden, aims to urge men 18-35 to make sure they check themselves for testicular cancer on a regular basis. Be warned. It's a bit of a Crying Game reveal. That's all we're going to say about this one.
Who is That Hot Ad Girl made a goof and got the identity of the woman in a Skechers ad incorrect. Hey, it happens. But the error has been corrected and we can move on...to the fact that this whole category of sneakers that make your ass firm is getting pretty hot. This Skechers ad from Spring 2011 makes the Reebok Retone ads look tame by comparison.
You've gotta love the new-found freedom the Russians have expressed over the past few years and, especially, how its made its way into advertising. Of course, it was totally predictable. You see, the easiest way to make a splash with anything you do is to...wait for it...employ a scantily clad woman. And that's exactly what the Russians have recently done in much of their advertising including in this ad for a fruit drink.
But, this ad has a twist. While this ad does go to salacious levels just to sell juice, it also sends a kind of message. When a woman with a shotgun approaches a hottie who is cavorting in a field and, seemingly, making mad passionate love to a strawberry...and scares her off with a shotgun, you know you're getting a completely different message.
Sex may have a place in advertising but certainly not in an ad for a children's drink. And the woman with the shotgun isn't going to have any scantily-clad hotties frolicking in her strawberry field to sell some juice. Nope. Not on her watch.
Following in the footsteps of Bar Refaeli and Gisele Bunchen, Sports illustrated supermodel Irina Shayk is making her debut as the new face of fashion brand rampage. Shayk will front the brand's new Fall campaign. You can watch Shayk talk about her role in the campaign in the video below well as check out the ads here, here and here.
Remember the Hunk Dorys hotties? Let us refresh your memory. Last year Irish chip brand Hunky Dorys strapped several women into bikinis and had them play rugby for an ad campaign. Predictably, there were complaints and the campaign was dubbed sexist by many who complained to the country's Advertising Standards Authority.
Over the weekend, the brand debuted a new campaign which has scantily clad women playing soccer. A few complaints have been logged by the ASA so far.
One of the ads in the campaign contains the headlines, "Still staring?" next to the image of a scantily clad woman baring significant cleavage. A second ad features the same scantily clad woman revealing her ample assets next to the headline, "Taaaasty." The Hunky Dory website contains all the imagery you'll need to conjure up your perfect Gaelic football fantasy.
Here's some more Agent Provocateur hotness for you. This work features Paz De La Huerta (who sounds like she must be a distant cousin of Oscar De La Hoya) who is touting the brand's Fall and Winter lineup. The 1:30 video, which is really a collection of a few shorter videos, depicts Huerta in scenarios realistic only in the minds of creative directors and fashion aficionados.
Huerta, who is seen arriving in a vehicle, dropping her purse and, finally, leaving in a vehicle simply cannot keep her undergarments covered allowing drooling paparazzi to capture full on crotch and cleavage shots.
One YouTube commenter sums it up perfectly, writing, "LOL okay, so what I'm getting from this commercial is a 'lady' acts like a drunk skeeze and shows her underwear off to everyone with a crotch-flashing crouch to pick up her keys. Cool, got it."
Yea, that about sums up this work. And if you simply can't get enough Agent Provocateur hotness, we've collected quite a bit of it over the years for you.
By now you've all heard the Kardashian Kollection will make its debut this week at Sears. We've shared our opinion on Sears' choice to saddle up with the Kardashian ladies already so we won't rehash that here. But at Adrants it's our duty to bring you every last story detail...especially when it involves lingerie. So with that thought in mind, we give you Kim, Khloe and Kourtney modeling lingerie from their Kollection.
But seriously. Lingerie from Sears? Really? This is the store at which you picture your mother or grandmother shopping for a few pairs of high-waisted, full coverage underwear synonymous with the antithesis of sex appeal. We're really having trouble wrapping our head around this whole Sears/Kardashian thing. Then again, if your a dying brand, you'll try just about anything to survive. And can we really blame a brand for that?
