AIDS Campaigns Say 'HIV is Gay,' 'Horny Heads Get Lost'

headless_sex.jpg

Beyond Madison Avenue has examined two recent AIDS campaigns. The first, an LA-based campaign which carries the headline "HIV is a gay disease" is causing a stir but if those causing the stir would just read the body copy, they'd know that's not entirely what the ad's saying. The second, a German campaign, carries a racier tone typical of many European ads and cites, "It's easy to lose your head when your horny." Oh, the double (or is it triple) meaning there is just gold.

IntelliTXT Thinks Bill Murray Hangs With Porn Stars

murray_porn.jpg

While it may be true that Bill Murray does, actually, hang with porn stars, we're thinking if he's good enough to hang with Scarlett Johansson, he probably doesn't need porn stars. Having said that, our favorite text-trashing text link poster child, IntelliTXT thought the "actors" Bill Murray was with when he played golf the other day might need a little help scoring their next gig and helpfully linked them to xxxpornjobs.com. (You do know that's not a work-safe link, don't you?) Don't you just love contextual advertising fuckery?

Bouncing Thong-Clad Beauties Spank For Biker Insurance

bennetts_babes.jpg

There aren't many people who use the term "brand spanking new" let alone use it to announce a "brand spanking new website" let along film four thong-clad women actually spanking each other while jumping up and down on a gigantic bouncy castle. But, there are some and biker insurance company Bennetts, located in the UK, is one. If you're interested in biker insurance or, more likely, even if you're not, wallow in the silliness that these three spots deliver and remember, we work in the same industry from which these wondrous creations came. For its pure foolishness, we like it. Ariel, not so much.

Napster Continues Stripper Fetish

napster_buck.jpg

Continuing its fixation with strippers and their apparent ability to convey Napster's marketing message, the once free-for-all now pay-for-all music service has trotted out yet another stripper to illustrate just how bad the iTunes buck-a-song premise is compared to Napster's all you can eat offering. We suppose the analogy works. After all, no one really wants to own a stripper. They just want to rent one for a little while until they're...well...finished.

Once Again, Butts And Thongs Sell Stuff

palmers_billboard.jpg

We're not quite sure Palmers is a clothing company because, just like Sloggis, the models in the company's ads, like the one featured here in Berlin, are never wearing much. A web search doesn't tell us much only offering up even more images of models wearing next to nothing. A lingerie company? A thong-wearing showgirl troupe? Some kind of bootie-based therapy or the public? It looks good to us no matter what the company does.

Tennis Hotties Swap Shirts For Magazine

Continuing it's Keep Dreaming of A Better World campaign, Che Magazine gives us yet another thing to dream about when it comes to a better world. That is if you think a better world is made of up female tennis players exchanging shirts at the end of a match. Oh, the things people do for publicity. This comes from our friends over at Duval Guillaume Antwerp.

Ooo. Aah. It's So Big. It's So Jewish. It's A Jewish Social Network

koolanoo_girls.jpg

From our hot women-obsessed friends over at Jewish social network. Koolanoo, comes yet another video filled with, yes, hot women and...huh...what is that gigantic thing between your legs, my friend? Oh just watch and find out. While there's no nudity (aside from a guy's backside) in this video, you might want to turn the volume down before viewing lest you want your office mates to think you've got some kind of orgy going on in your office.

Talent Zoo Unleashes Ad Industry's Pent Up Skank

giveMeAnOLogo.jpg

If you want to check out who's having office sex at the agency next door or who's grabbing ass to win new busines, check out TalentZoo's new section called the break room, a place where all the industry's nastiness can be shared by all. We particularly like the story from Becca who said, after a certain office activity, "My pumps made black marks on the wall."

Nice touch with the martini glass. Hmm, where have we seen that before?

These Boobs Were Made For iPod Support

ipod_cleavage.jpg

Warning! Warning! Attention, accuracy police. Attention those who expect only boring, serious news here on Adrants and nothing to actually lighten up the day. This is not, repeat, not a real ad for the Apple iPod Shuffle. Neither is this. These are the fake machinations of some Flickr person having fun with their cleavage and panties for the amusement of others, you included. So just look. Enjoy. And don't over analyze.
