When it Comes to Sexiness, It's What's Underneath That Counts

lingerie_burka.jpg

The debate about just what sexy is has been going on for as long as the first cave woman modeled the latest woolly mammoth fashions. Some enjoy full on nudity. Others like the teasing tantalization of skimpy clothing (think miniskirt, heels and a tight top). But some want everything left to the imagination.

In this commercial for Liaison Dangerous, we're given a glimpse under the hood of what would otherwise not be considered all that sexy. It's all relative.

If You Give A Bill to A Stripper...It Won't Have A Happy Ending

hearts_desire_germany_stripper.jpg

Ever wonder where that $10, $20 or $100 went after you handed it over to to buy some food, get a car wash or tip a stripper? Well, Germany's Heart's Desire Association takes a look at a single bill's travels. It isn't pretty. But the organization promises bills that find their way into the organization will have a much happier ending.

Auto Ad Banned For Dubbing Big Breasts 'Nice Headlamps'

headlamps_ulstertrader.jpg

Oh how boobs can get advertisers in trouble. Especially really big ones with lots of cleavage spilling out of a bra. That seems to be what's at issue with an UlsterTrader billboard campaign carrying the headline "Nice Headlamps" and copy that reads, "What do you look for in a car?"

Beastiality, S&M, Fetishes Encourage Open Mind For Film Festival

vancouver_film_festival.jpg

You know those ratings that precede every movie you see in the theater? Well, the Vancouver International Film Festival has a new one. It's "V" and it states, "An Open Mind is Advised." So how do they creatively make people aware of this "new" rating? They employ a collection of sexual proclivities designed to widen our acceptance level of, by association we assume, new and different forms of film making.

The work was created by TBWAVancouver and directed by Tim Godsall. It's all about sexuality. We think.

Robots Educate Clients on Creative Process

robot_creative_text.jpg

If you don't mind robots swearing at each other while bitching about the creative process you'll love this cheeky-ish video pimping xtranormal Text-to-Movie software. It's a brilliant take on the expectations and misunderstandings more than a few people have regarding what's involved in the proper development of creative

Yawn. American Apparel Pushes Boundaries Again. Oh Wait, Was That A Boob?

aa_flexfleece_seminude_boob.jpg

So yea. Britain's Advertising Standards Authority has received several complaints about a new American Apparel ad in Vice Magazine which features a young girl wearing shorts and a hoodie which, in one shot, almost exposes her nipple. The ASA upheld the complaint dubbing the ad "offensive and irresponsible" as the girl in the ad appeared to be under the age of 16.

According to American Apparel, the girl in the ad is 23 and the ad was meant to depict her relaxed in a "home" environment. But the ANA says the ad is inappropriate and must not appear again in its current form.

Inappropriate? How so? Hasn't everyone heard all girls sit around the house self shooting themselves? Have these complainers never visited a Facebook page? Or Webshots? Or Photobucket? Never seen a mirror shot? This is hardly racy compared to what's out there. Oops, this is an ad. Not some 14 year old boys afternoon "motivation."

OK so yea. Cover a bit more of the boobs and everyone will be fine with this.

Doggy Style, The Little Toad and The Rider. Yea, It's A Condom Campaign

the_rider_condom.jpg

OK then. What's Advertising Week without the Pièce de résistance of advertising? Nothing. So it's our duty on this fine sunny (at least in New York) Monday to present yet another sex-laced advertising campaign. This one's from Barcelona-based Suigeneris for La Condoneria. Yea, it's a condom store and the campaign's called Rub-It. Yea, you read that right. Rub it. Which kinda makes sense for a condom campaign, right? After all, that's what you do after you put one on.

Somehow Nudity Promotes Cider

growers_cider.jpg

Don't have any good nude pictures of yourself (or your friends) to send to your lover or post on Facebook (to embarrass your friends)? Toronto agency HQvB and Lollipop have created Growers Au Naturale for Growers Cider where you can upload any picture of your choosing and have the site "nudify" the pictures which are then posted to the site's gallery.

It seems most pictures are just "relative nudity" meaning all the parts that would truly make the picture nude are somehow covered. So we leave it up to you to toss some full frontals at the site to see what happens.

Pawk the Fawking Caw You Retawd!

ma_men_funny_or_die.jpg

Watch. Just watch. You don't even have to know anything about Mad Men to love this Funny or Die clip in which a bunch of Massholes run an ad agency pitch. Don't miss New Kid Joey McIntyre as Roger Sterling.

There's no nudity in the clip but unless your office is cool with language akin to that spoken in a bar after the Red Sox lose, you might want to listen to this one with earphones on.
