Perhaps we missed Adventure Number One (oops, no we didn't) but Agency Provocateur, in its never ending quest to be as provocative as possible gives us Adventure Number Two, The Lady of the Manor, a full blown storybook-style glimpse inside the world of Manor living, the lady that runs the house and the maids who do her bidding. Of course, this isn't a story about your average manor living. It's a tricked out, male fantasy-focused version complete with lingerie-clad maids receiving spankings and morning frolics in bed.
We, of course, have absolutely no problem enjoying this creation to the fullest extent. However, we wonder what its appeal is to women. Apart from the few women who enjoy watching other women prance about in lingerie, we're curious how many women really want to witness the day in the life of an objectified, subservient maid. [Ed. Oh shut up you idiot. This is advertising. Can't you just leave a good T and A campaign alone?]
Now here's a campaign that doesn't beat around the bush...even thought there is beating and bush involved. Rarely do we find ad campaigns so blunt and so bold and so, pray tell, graphically honest as this one. Reminiscent of those fake PUMA ads years ago, this campaign for Hombre Magazine doesn't bother to dance lightly around what some of its readers do when reading the magazine.
Created by Leo Burnett Buenos Aires, this is a campaign we'd never see in America because, God forbid, we admit anyone ever in their entire life ever looks at "dirty" magazines or masturbates. Adland has the campaign's entire series of ads here.
FishNChimps tells the hilarious story of how he dozed off on the train with the pages of his GQ magazine open to an ad for John White footwear which falls squarely into the category of "great to look at but not in a public place." Mid-doze, he awoke with a start that seemingly caught the attention of a woman reading the Evening Standard who did her best to politely conceal her chuckle behind the paper after seeing FishNChimps' embarrassment over having been caught with a lingerie-clad booty and a pendulous set of cleavage resting on his lap.
Been meaning to get to this one for a few days. it's a campaign for ArriveAlive, an organization created by a father whose son was killed while driving drunk. The site touts the importance of the decisions and consequences that affect one's life. Calling attention to the site is a bathroom stall campaign which adheres images of drunken women to the floor and wall.
One woman is on her hands and knees in front of the toilet apparently puking. Another woman appears to be sitting against the wall in the mens room next to the urinals. Both are dressed slut-like with exposed thong, fishnet stockings and pumps. While no one really wants to look at a fat ugly drunk woman (or man for that matter), Copyranter wonders if we're supposed to think only sluts get drunk.
This commercial for a Japanese candy is more than a year old but it is so ridiculous we just have to share it with you. It's a pretty well known fact men (well, the straight ones at least) across the globe find it very pleasing to look at a pretty woman with big breasts wearing nothing but sexy underwear and a tiny bra. Even more so if the lady decides to jump up and down while bouncing uncontrollably in that tiny bra. Some countries are just more open than others when it comes to allowing that activity to be publicly displayed.
This campaign for the Chinese Greenfamily Youth Association of Environment Protection brings a whole new meaning to the phrase "squat and squirt." Created by Beijing-based Guangdong Advertising, this campaign calls attention to the plight of our polluted planet. Or, alternatively, Chinese people piss in public and they should stop that nasty habit. Whatever. Ass always gets noticed. Even if it is a completely un-bootyliciois, asexual one such as the one in this ad.
Some might say this French American Apparel ad is offensive (for the full effect, click the "more" link below which is NSFW). There's been much discussion over the years about American Apparel's ad campaign and whether or not it reduces females to play things for men. But if you spend even a few minutes on Flickr, Webshots, Photobucket and any number of weblogs that obsesses over the given subject matter, you will come to realize that women of a certain age really do like to pull their shirts up and show us their tits.
This would never happen in America but in celebration of record sales, Taiwanese lingerie company Audrey Underwear asked its 500 female employees to come to work for a day wearing nothing but their undergarments. Over 90 percent did and the company has now made it a monthly occurrence Work productivity among the company's male employees on those days is expected to drop to zero with productivity of another kind shooting upward all day long.
Agency Spy is just catching up with the whole American Apparel "Gee, I wonder why women get raped" New York City billboard thing. We've had our say in interviews with Newsweek and The New York Times. While Agency Spy "verbally exploded all over" their cab driver after seeing yet another racy American Apparel billboard, we're just glad we can look at another piece of ass. Damn, that was mean, wasn't it? But thanks for that, Agency Spy.
Japanese bra maker Maruko is getting witty in a new Asatsu-DK-created campaign that fixates on the bronski, the act of getting one's face smooshed between a pair of breasts. While certainly a pleasurable experience, the two guys in these two ads look more like they've endured a Holocaust camp than the pleasures of a big pair of soft, fleshy breasts.
This is certainly a new addition to the long list of quirky approached bra makers have taken to get their product noticed. Wonderbra has proven its ability to confine breasts in motion with a spoof of the Cadbury Gorilla commercial and the fact their push up bras make women's breasts so big they cause problems. Playtex has asked women to submit funny stories about their experiences with their bras. Vanity Fair has playfully used lighting tricks to cover the female nipple. Chantelle Push-Up bras push up more than just beasts.
Sloggi just bares as much ass as it can. Bravissimo gets people past the over D cup stigma with properly fitted F, G and GG bras. Hanes signed Ghost Whisperer star Jennifer Love Hewit, the only woman who is as equally obsessed about breasts as men are. Victoria's Secret has gone the route of glamorizing the bra to the point it deserves its own television spectacle. And U.K. bra company Shock Absorber created a website where people can go watch breasts bounce.
