'I Think We're In A Viral'

mini_clubman_viral_spoof.jpg

Hilarious! And finally! Viral breaks the fourth wall and spoofs in this Mini viral that's not a viral that, well, may actually turn out to be viral after all. This rocks. Isn't it about time we crapped on all the fake videos out there from the likes of RayBan and Levis? Yes, indeed, it is time. And this one does it superbly.

If you've watched AgencySpy's Week in Advertising, you have to see Brokaw's O News. The similarities are, well, intentional, of course. Love the 'stache.

Mystery Solved! Peter Arnell is Mister Six in Disguise!

peterarnell_sixflags.jpg

Oh now it all makes sense. So this is what Peter Arnell did before he spent (wasted?) $35 million messing with Tropicana packaging (only to have the brand revert to the original) and who knows how many millions on the Pepsi logo...and that document.

Yes, indeed. Now it makes perfect sense.

It's the New WTF Blanket!

what_the_fuck_blanket.jpg

You've heard of the Snuggie, right? No? Well you're missing out on one of the coolest new fashion ever to hit the ... television in the form of a stupid infomercial. But forget about the actual infomercial and watch this parody. Did we say PARODY? Yes, we said PARODY. Get it? Parody!

Anyway, now that we've clarified that minor detail, check out the What the Fuck Blanket.

'We Want People to Be Screaming from Houses Across the Country'

sony-fuck-billboard.jpg

Guerrilla Comm and Silicon Alley Insider scooped us on this Onion spoof on Sony: its complex, overambitious product line, and utopic rape-your-eyeballs ad strategy.

Imagine all that in a news brief coloured by the profane angst-rage you suffer once you finally get that "motherfucking time vampire"* home. (Oh yeah, language NSFW.)

"Maybe the Onion was inspired by 'BD-Live,' the confusing and ill-advised plan to integrate Blu-ray disc watching with instant messaging," said Alley Insider. And the sad part is, that crazy POS was real.

Michelle Williams and Natalie Portman Catfight For Greed Perfume

greed_portman_williams.jpg

Don't you hate the over-produced, over-styled, ridiculously unrealistic fragrance commercial that insist upon portraying life as if it were based solely upon how you smell? Don't you wish, for once, a Fragrance commercial would do something interesting like...oh...show a cat fight between Natalie Portman and Michelle Williams?

Well now your wish, courtesy of Roman Polanski and Francesco Vezzoli, can come true with this spoof commercial for Greed.

Guard Your Loins! This Video Will Gay You

gay-alpha-thumb.jpg

Responding to political insinuations that homosexuals "effectively advertise, glamorise and recruit people" to their lifestyle, a handful of creatives used their downtime to develop a tongue-in-cheek recruitment campaign for la vie en gay.

"The Gay Alphabet" is all Sesame Street-inspired eightiesness, cheerfully ticking down an alphabetical list of all the things that WILL MAKE YOU GAY. So yeah, that one time you went out in chaps and confessed to loving Kylie Minogue to a dude who later grabbed your ass? That marked your fall into Sodom -- and one day you will learn to love it.

Oh Look! It's Another Advertising Parody

barats_bareta.jpg

No, not that kind. This kind comes from Barats & Bareta, an online comedy team who've decided to take on advertising and, once again, confirm the notion the industry is a very, very strange place.

People, we must "adapt and embrace."

Breaking! New Technology Turns Computer Screen Into Tanning Bed

computertan.jpg

To convince people of the dangers of skin cancer, UK charity SKCin, with help from Rubber Republic, has launched ComputerTan, a fake company and website that purports to have developed a "revolutionary new way to help keep you looking healthy, young and attractive in the office."

The gist? ComputerTan makes it possible to get a tan from your computer monitor. Activating the free trial loads a cool, full screen tanning screen which, after a while, delivers the punchline...in the form of disgusting pictures of people with nasty skin cancer legions. Gross.

But, it works. The effort hopes to make people aware of the fact skin cancer kills up to five people each day in the UK. There's a mobile app and even a line of products supporting the effort.

An infomercial-style video placed on YouTube hopes to lure visitors to the site under the guise ComputerTan is the real thing.
