Make the Logo Bigger's Bill Green points to this pulchritudinous contextual oddity which features sleeping men in NyQuil ads surrounding a story about a study, out for about a month, that claims staring at the breasts of well-endowed women will increase the life expectancy of men.
The corrigendum? The fact the sleeping NyQuil men are wasting away their lives taking drugs and sleeping while they could be ogling mountainous cleavage and getting healthy without drugs. A stretch? Perhaps. But for once, it wasn't us making the stretch.
We'd be remiss in our reportage of sex-laced advertising if we didn't inform you of this French Aubade lingerie campaign created by Chainsaw which has a woman pimping the lingerie from an apartment above a busy street where passersby can watch her silhouette behind a window curtain. And when she's done prancing around in the room, she unveils herself (point for product shot) and then closes the blinds revealing the brand name (point for actual information transferal).
And that's it (point for salaciously gratuitous post for the day).
It's Monday. The day after a week long, much-deserved break from the action. Since the advertising industry might as well not exist between Christmas and New Year's, there isn't much news to report today.
Other than the fact boobs and butts still sell stuff. But you already knew that didn't you?
- The Humane Society says get off your ass and save the world's abused and neglected animals.
- Ladies, not happy with your ass? Booty Pop will make you bootylicious. One problem. Can you imagine the look on your man's face when he undresses you and sees this thing? It's like tissue falling out of a padded bra in middle school.
- Random sexy ad on Flickr.
- And yes, the Sexiest/Raciest/Raunchiest Ads of 2009 will come sometime this week. If you're lucky.
OK. So they're not really sounds of the season and they're not really sounds you can listen to at work which...is OK, right? Because no is at work this week. Sadly, for the poor souls who are, starp on your earphones before you give this Durex commercial a view. And don't worry about the video portion. It's all text.
The ad was created by Shanghai-based Exis.
When you're sitting in the weekly agency bore-fest otherwise known as the traffic meeting, your mind tends to wander a bit doesn't it? You think of the bills you have to pay. The grass that needs mowing. The house that needs to be cleaned. The Christmas presents that need to be shopped for. The oil change appointment you need to make for your car. The new business presentation you need to prepare for. The groceries you need for dinner tonight...and girl on girl action between the traffic manager and her assistant.
Say what? OK, so maybe that last one only happens in a CrazyDomains commercial with Pamela Anderson and her attractive assistant who are looking for a new domain name for their business. With the help of one employee who finds himself in the middle of a full on fantasy, the ladies get what they need and the man ends up the star employee of the day.
Hey Bob Parsons, your commercials use to be fun like this. What happened?
What is is with women in showers these days? Burger King in the UK has launched Singing in the Shower, "the world's first guilt free showercam." Created by Cow and Pancentric Digital, visitors can "watch our shower babe shake her bits to the hits at 9:30 every morning." And they can vote for the outfit she will wear and the song she will sing the next day.
Targeting men (over 18...the site is age-protected) to get them to buy breakfast, the site also offers the chance to win a date with the shower babe who, presumably, could shake her bits in private for the winner. That or slap the boy silly for even thinking such degrading thoughts.
Oh look! Just in time to counteract all the hoopla over the Shiny Suds "rape scenario" fiasco. Tit for tat as they say. If you believe the woman in the Method Shiny Suds commercial was somehow being sexually assaulted by those leering, dirty-minded bubbles, you'll definitely relate to the horrific plight of the man in this Orangina commercial who is verbally taunted, assaulted with a whip and forced to strip while he fears for his life.
Oh the horror of it all! The insensitivity to the plight of men! Reducing a man to nothing more than a caged plaything! How dare Orangina portray men as sexual objects for S&M-fixated women! It's as if sexually assaulting men is an acceptable form of behavior! Good God. What has this world come to?
What? No cause group outrage over this one?
Ladies, don't you hate it when your man is obsessed with stupid things like cars and trophies and memorabilia? The girl in this DIY Network commercial certainly is. But not in the way you'd expect. In the end, she's a good girl who serves her man exactly what he needs And for those who hated the Method Shiny Suds commercial, yes, she probably is perpetuating the woman-as-sexual-slave-to-men stereotype. But, hey, this is advertising. This is what we do. We live on stereotypes like vampires live on blood.
Here's some ridiculousness for a Monday morning after a long and overstuffed Thanksgiving. If you think you've put on a few pounds after eating turkey for four days, you might appreciate the rotundness of the slapping asses in this "commercial" for Orangina. Though there;s no nudity, many might consider this NSFW. You decide.
And if shaking asses weren't enough to jolt you back to reality this Monday morning, check out these asses wearing glasses in a campaign for Glassing Sunglasses. ANd no, we have no idea what the intended concept of these ads are either. Other than, as AdFreak points out, the literal interpretation people who wear sunglasses as a fashion accessory are sometimes categorized as pompous, self-centered asses. Though why a sunglasses brand would take this route is a bit questionable.
By the way, welcome back to work. We hope you had a wonderful break and don't think we're too much of an ass for shoving ass in your face as you sip your morning java. Oh wait, we are a giant collection of asses here at Adrants so yea, we so totally wanted to ass face you today!
