Recently someone mentioned Adrants had begun to ignore the sexier side of advertising. And she was right. It's been a bit puritanical around here for a while. But, on an advertiser-supported site, it's not like you can write about ad porn all day long without causing some concern among advertisers.
Though the fact remains, sex continues to be an integral element of advertising. With that, we give you this video promoting Daniel Power's Energy Wasting Day. Oh don't worry. It's not all that racy. No nudity. No gratuitous butt shots. Just a quirky 80's-ish style music video with a dude and four hot chicks. It's all pretty tame. Enjoy.
Looks like Philips Shave Everywhere, pretty cool at the time, has been upstaged by Wilkinson Sword's Ma Garden Party (se video here)which officially launches March 16. Hooking up with French singer Simone elle est bonne, the brand is out to show just how much fun it can be to "garden."
It's a catchy tune. We're sure it'd be even more catchy if we could understand the lyrics. But you don't really need to to get what's going on and understand the message.
Rising (falling?) YouTube starlet Jill Hanner wonders what ever happened to those beer ads where the beer was decided on how hot the girl was? It's a good question. Where have the Coors Twins gone? The Miller Lite Catfight girls? The St. Pauli Girl? Oh wait, she's still around.
But, seriously, it's like brewers pulled out and took a vow of abstinence or something. When was the last time beers and babes were in the same frame? Maybe it's a good thing since studies keep saying sex doesn't sell. And damn, a troll through the Adrants archives reveals we've trashed the tactic as well.
Or maybe it's just the normal course of things. After all, everyone needs a bit of a break between bouts.
Fashion whore Jeremy Dante put our eyeballs in touch with the rear-wheel drive on this Armani Exchange ad -- which is currently languishing on the cutting-room floor.
Here's the story: the piece was slated to hit New York's Meatpacking District but was rejected by the Van Wagner Billboard company, which deemed it too racy. General consensus blames the rejection on the man-lumps, but I don't know, maybe it had less to do with that than the fact that it looks like he's wanking in a corner.
As an addendum to that, there's also the matter of the copious cleavage (which, to be fair, never really stops anybody from appearing on a billboard) and implied menage-a-trois (do fashionistas mind the occasional gangbang?). But hey, if the internet says VW's rejection is all about ass, then who are we to argue.
You know, we need a name for this soon to be overused math equation headline style. Anyway, it's like the headline says. Some strippers got naked for a cause and ended up in a PETA anti-fur ad.
Ad AdFreak reports, the naked (really poor term since all the parts that actuall constitute "actual nudity" are covered) women are Rick's Cabaret strippers and that that move defeats the entire purpose of PETA's nudity campaigns: that they get people who you won't normally see nude to go nude for a cause. Jenna Jameson excluded, of course.
As we have come to expect from Agent Provocateur, weird is normal. So, in this new commercial, it makes perfect sense a lingerie-clad woman in ironing on the front porch of a mountain cabin while the strangest of music plays in the background.
And that she then goes inside to go all S&M the guy laying in bed.
Yes. Agent Provocateur.
Who knew Doritos had so many uses? They can help get a guy whacked in the balls. They can provide the power to rip a girl's clothes off. And now they can function as the latest fashion on the beaches this summer.
Or at least in a Peruvian ad that imagines such a scenario
Increased heart rate. Gasping breath sounds. Curling toes. Trembling legs. Quivering torso. Tingling skin. Dripping wet lips. Increased urgency. Vocal outbursts.
Wait, what? Get your mind out of the gutter!
What did you think we were talking about?
This is a commercial for hotel and restaurants location service G Spot.
Seriously, what were you thinking?
Though if you do choose to watch the commercial, you might want to do so with earphones on.
Unless you want the rest of your co-workers to think your having a bit of afternoon delight in your cubicle, you might want to turn the volume down or wear earphones before viewing this climactic commercial from Wellington Zoo courtesy of Saatchi & Saatchi.
The blissful exuberance is all to promote Valentine's Day at the zoo which has put together a 17-plus night out including gourmet treats, a live band and, of course the animals. There's no word on whether or not the animals will "perform" during the festivities.
Not since the eighties when Brooke Shields cooed seductively into the camera have we seen a television commercial (partial nudity) for Calvin Klein Jeans. With the release of a new menage-a-trois themed commercial featuring models Natasha Poly, Anna Selezneva andAnna Jagodzinska, the once racy Shields commercial will now be filed under "tame and innocent."
The commercial, shot by Steven Meisel, will air in Europe while an edited version will air in the U.S. The unedited version run on the Calvin Klein Jeans website.
Along with the television spot, the campaign will be supported by magazine, billboards and LED boards.
