Vintage Throwback: Marlboro Tries Baby Desperados

marlboro_mini.jpg

Sometimes you need to go vintage to remember how far we have (or haven't) come. Before cowboys, Marlboro marketed with that other lovable doe-eyed mom-melter: kids. The text just kills us.

We only wish we could have invited our moms to light up pre-punishment without getting thrown into next year. See the complete ad here. - Contributed by Angela Natividad

Second Life Lets Would-Be Creepies Live Out Fantasies

You can do what on Second Life?! That was, and remains, our reaction when we discovered you can role play rape in the back alleys of the commerce-friendly virtual wonderland.

Apparently even Second Lifers can't do the rounds alone after dark. - Contributed by Angela Natividad

Talking About Sex Makes For Better (And Safer) Sex

o_sensoa-4gr.jpg

Before the wonders of the Internet, we never had the pleasure of experiencing how open other countries are about the subject of sex. In America, we toss the subject into a box, throw away the key and hope no one ever finds it. Caffeine Marketing points us to a Belgium-based sex and AIDS awareness campaign by Sensoa. There are several versions of the ad that were developed for both the general public as well as specific audiences such as school children and homosexuals. Translated, one of the ads reads, "Oral, vaginal, anal. How about verbal? Say what you like, what you expect, how far you will go. And expect the same from your partner. Because good agreements makes good sex."

Ogilvy Makes Draft/FCB Lion Ad Into TV Commercial

humping_animals_mtv.jpg

In a twisted nod to that Draft/FCB Lion ad everyone took pleasure in shitting on, this Ogilvy Amsterdam-created ad for MTV takes the whole lion fucking thing even further incorporating other species and, in an excruciatingly long 60 seconds, tells people to wear condoms because "every six seconds somebody is infected with HIV." Catchy tune though. Unfortunately, it's gonna be stuck in our head the next time we decide to go all animal on someone.

Viagra Keeps Gymnast Up

Viagra works. It really does. Even for gymnasts who need to stay rock hard during their routines. Huh? WTF? Just click here if you want to see the full version of this NSFW ad Jason Kottke received as a spam email. Damn, that looks painful!

Advertising Just Got Harder, Dan Wieden Worshiped

That double-entendre-laden Reach and Frequency video from Elvis & Bonaparte has resurfaced, this time, on a site with its own specialized URL: www.reachfrequency.com. The seventies porn-style video about Tucker Swallow & Rockhard is full of the usual word play including our fav: the insertion order. Along with employees Buck Thrustwell, Nikki Swallow, and Candy Canal, Dan Wieden gets some interesting props in the elevator.

Old Medium Shows Ass Marilyn Monroe-Style

pretty_polly.jpg

If there's one medium over any other that is, at the same time, both stodgy and inventive, it's outdoor. Extensions, cutouts, moving parts, integration with surroundings and now...a gigantic woman wearing a "real" dress that, when the wind blows, billows upward to reveal the advertisied product: Pretty Polly lingerie.

Durex Wants Hump Day Dick

hump_day_durex.jpg

Durex just can't help itself. First, it brings us pithy penis peculiarities with The Pants Whisperer, complete with hot doctor and dickorations. Now it's pitching a tent on hump day claiming it Durex Hump Day to celebrate the many pleasures associated with condoms and what they're used for. The Hump Dat site says it all, "Canadians are horny. And the weekend's too long to wait. We've got needs! So together we'll take a boring day in the middle of the week and make it sing with the sounds of beds creaking and moans of delight." Indeed.

This witty wit brought to you by MacLaren McCann and MacLaren McCann Direct and Interactive.

Manix Condoms Cause End of World

manix_condoms.jpg

Not that you've ever had the premonition this guy did before buying condoms but this particular premonition, in the form of a 90 second ad for Manix condoms, clearly illustrates the "dangers" successful usage of condoms can cause. In Bulworth, Warren Beatty said, "If we all fucked each other, we'd eventually end up the same color." If Warren were in this Manix ad, he might say, "If we all fucked each other with condoms, we might end the world as we know it."

Freezing Cold Hot Woman Can't Keep Clothes On

lynx_blow.jpg

With Winter approaching, Lynx (Axe in the U.S.), the only company that, over and over again, seems to successfully be able to milk sexual innuendo for all its worth has released yet another man-friendly amusement site filled with women who can't seem to kept their clothes on. This site, LynxBlow, offers visitors to the chance to help a poor, freezing woman standing in the snow warm up by, yes, blowing at her through your computer's microphone. Unfortunately - or fortunately for the viewer - when wind comes her way, her clothes get blown off. She doesn't seem to mind though and winks knowingly at the viewer like some sort of Eskimo exhibitionist with an Arctic freeze fetish.

Thankfully, through the kindness of our friends at Dare who worked on the creation of this visual pleasure, you don't even have to go thought the site set up to see the "goods." You can see all the best blow off scenes in a YouTube video here.
