As you may recall, five or so years ago, there was a trendlet that involved people selling their body parts to brands. Foreheads were tattooed. Pregnant bellies were auctioned off. Cleavage was branded. Online casino Golden Palace was the biggest brand to take advantage of this trendlet placing their name on streakers, boobs, and any body part they could find on eBay.
Golden Palace is at it again with Tana Gabrielle who is lending her cleavage to Golden Palace as part of a promotion in which the online casino bid and bought for $51,000 the helmet of NASCAR driver Robbie Gordon who threw the helmet at another driver after a crash.
Gordon is donating the proceeds to Harrah's Employee Relief Fund which assists families and eployees affected by Hurricane Katrina. Babrielle, with Golden Palace tattooed to her chest, will accept the helmet for the cause.
Ever since busty Candice Michelle's tank top almost fell off in front of a "broadcast censorship committee" in a Super Bowl commercial several years ago, domain name registrar Go Daddy has milked it for all it's worth. With Go Daddy Girl after Go Daddy Girl, the brand has strictly adhered to the salaciousness sells approach to advertising.
From Vanessa Rousso to Ella Koon to Erin Kalin to Danica Patrick, to newcomer Jillian Michaels, Go Daddy isn't shy about serving up sex despite it being derided year after year for its crass approach to advertising.
Go Daddy CEO calls his approach to advertising GoDaddy-esque which he labels as "edgy, fun and slightly inappropriate."
In this year's Super Bowl broadcast, the company's 7th consecutive year, Go Daddy will air three commercials; two during the game and one in pre-game. Each of the commercials, produced in-house by Go Daddy productions, will feature both Danica Patrick and newcomer Jillian Michaels from Biggest Loser.
If the UK's Mail Online is calling the new Christina Aguilera fragrance commercial "soft-porn," they really ought to get out and surf the internet a bit more. Describing Aguilera in the ad as "showcasing her ample cleavage in a very low cut dress and writhing in a chair in ecstasy as she sprays the perfume across her chest," Mail Online thinks, "the singer's ad may be a bit too risque for her younger fans."
While Aguilera does reveal her ample assets in a low cut dress, her movement and demeanor are hardly anything close to soft porn. If so, porn has gone soft in its old age. She's hardly pushing the boundaries of decency as mail Online claims.
We get propositioned all the time here at Adrants. You name it, we've been asked to do it. Perhaps it's our demeanor. Perhaps it's our fixation with a particular form of advertising strategy. Perhaps it's our obsession with top heavy women who love football. Whatever the case may be, we get propositioned a lot. Today, we were asked to engage in a three way. Yes, a three way.
Hey, we're all for a bit of adventuresome fun around here but this particular three way doesn't sound anywhere near as much fun as another kind of three way with which we are far more familiar. The following found its way into our inbox today:
Queens-born Tehmeena Afzal loves the New York Giants. Really, really loves them. And she's showing her love in a new video that can only be described as one of the sexiest football-related videos you will ever see. And while all her R-rated parts are covered, you'd best view this video away from the prying eyes of your boss. Or anyone for that matter. If only to prevent yourself the embarrassment of being caught "visibly affected" by this video.
With her immense - though oddly immovable - underboob, Afzal goes through all the right moves to get you excited about football...and other sports. But, as we mentioned above...not the kind of sport you want to play in the office.
An Anne Summers radio ad promoting a line of Halloween-themed outfits has been blocked by the UK's Radio Advertising Clearing Centre which claimed the ad contained, "fairly overt sexual references in terms of sound effects."
The spot contains sounds of fear-based screams which then transform into more pleasurable sounding screams. In other words, women having orgasms. Nothing wrong with that in our book, of course, but according to the RACC, the spot overstepped the organization's guidelines regarding taste and offense.
As spokesperson for the RACC said, "The ad contains fairly overt sexual references in terms of sound effects. We believed that it was too strong for broadcast on commercial radio, notwithstanding timing conditions."
Anne Summers, on the other hand, thinks the ad is just fine with CEO Jacqueline Gold saying, "We have appealed the decision made by the RACC and would love to know what the great British public think. We are proud of our brand that always sparks debate and we hope this gets people talking about sex in a positive way."
