Credit Card Offer Increases Breast Size


If a girl signed up for this Plastic Assets credit card, we wonder if a Paris Hilton spending level would cause her breasts to explode or, perhaps, hang to her knees. Yes, The Plastic Assets credit card offers FeelGood Points for each dollar spent which can be redeemed for various surgeries such as tummy tucks, lips injections and breast implants. Applicants can sign up for various card programs ranging from the B card to the DD card. Yes, of course this site is fake and was created solely for the purpose of climbing to the top, which it did, of The Huffington Post's Contagious Festival. It also appears to be created by or at least sponsored by AOL as their banners are plastered all over the site. AdFeak links.

The tutorial then points to the "real" Where's Lepos viral site. Funny stuff.

Marketers Could Learn From Microsoft iPod Re-Brand Spoof


OK, we're a few days late in sharing this but a spoof video showing how Microsoft would brand the iPod is hilarious, true and indicative of the horrific packaging and marketing most brands puke out of their verbal diarrhea spewing mouths. Give it a watch then show it to everyone in your company and watch them squirm as they embarrassingly acknowledge, "Uh, yea, we did that once too."

Idea Grove Re-Writes Nike Kobe Bryant Ad


On its Media Orchard weblog, communications agency Idea Grove has re-written Nike's new Kobe Bryant ad replacing airy, superfluous puffery such as "Love me of hate me, it's one or the other. Always has been. Hate my game, my swagger. Hate my fadeaway, my hunger" etc." with more realistic verse such as "Hate my lies, my infidelity" etc. Check out the complete re-write here. It's pretty good.

Someone Thinks Google Knows More Than They Should


While we've all heard Google promise to "do no evil," someone thinks otherwise and has created a version of Google's logo that speaks to the giant's mission of organizing the world's information and its new "remember what you've searched for" personalized search feature. Somehow, we don't think this logo's going to appear at the top of Google's site alongside all those other cute, holiday logos. Perhaps Booble might, with a few changes, like a logo like this. Hmm. Actually a bit of quick research reveals they already do and have one of their own.

Bugle Boy Jeans Ads Re-Written For Current Day


We have vague memories of those Bugle Boy Jeans ads where the women check out the guy's jeans rather than the guy and ask, "Are those Bugle Boy Jeans You're Wearing?" Apparently motivated by seeing someone wear these fashion faux paus, What Would J.Crew Do wrote three versions of a Bugle Boy ad as if they were to be on the air today. Funny stuff.

'Date movie' Trailer Gets Carl's Jr. Paris Hilton Spicy Spoof Treatment


AdJab points to an AdWeek story about a trailer for the movie Date Movie which centers on the Carl's Jr. Paris Hilton sex-with-a-car ad and neither even point to the trailer they're writing about. Granted, the trailer's been out for a couple weeks, the movie will suck and once you've seen one Carl's spoof, you've seen them all but rather than inconvenience you by making you search for the video yourselves, we did a quick search and can point you to the spot here on iFilm along with plenty of other clips from the movie. Poor Allison Hannigan. On the other hand, who thought American Pie would be any good so we'll reserve judgement until the movie's released.

Billboard Gets Spunked


Back in November of 2004, Vodafone gave a girl a facial. Well, perhaps, not exactly but an ad they ran sure made it look like they did. Fast forward to 2006 and its a Clear Channel billboard that's received cat spunk "liberation" that brings back memories of the spunked Vodafone girl. If your in Berkley, California, you can catch the board on Shattuck Street.
