fake_social_media_stats.jpg

For years, marketers have used statistics to prop up questionable endeavors and agencies have done the same to pimp their lame ass, wicked cool ideas to clients. The beauty of statistics is that you can manipulate the numbers any way you see fit to support whatever it is you are trying to sell.

So it is without surprise that wunderkind of the moment, social media, is a treasure trove of less than reliable stats. UK site, The Poke has taken it upon themselves to have a little fun with all the bullshit statistics currently being slung about regarding social media.

Coke Happiness Machine Gets Naughty

We're pretty sure Coke isn't going to like this. We're pretty sure this video won't be up for long. We're pretty sure the people who created the video had a lot of fun making it. We're pretty sure all the girls hugging the machine need to go get a real man. And we're pretty sure we really, really like this spoof.

Dr. Schnoz, the "Nose King of Miami," is at it again with another Old Spice spoof. This one features "the man standing next to the man who could make your man look more like me" reading romantic novel Fifty Shades of Grey.

Last week, the good doctor, Dr. Michael Salzhauer, came out with his initial Old Spice parody which, to date, has garnered 205,993 views. Can Salzhauer reclaim the glory this week? We aren't sure. We called the initial work the worst Old Spice parody we have ever seen. Then again Rebecca Black's Friday Friday has achieved over 30 million views to date.

Not All Boobs Are As Nice As Kate Upton's

carls_jr_nyquil_spoof.jpg

You know how dreams twist reality? Now imagine having a dream about Carl's Jr. One might assume it'd be a pretty hot dream complete with images of you motorboating Kate Upton's huge boobs or having sex with Paris Hilton sex tape-style. Got those images in your head now? OK, now stop reading unless you want to ruin everything.

Still here? OK. You asked for it. AdamRayTV decided to create a Carl's Jr. spoof...and put it inside a Nyquil ad. Twisted? Definitely. Funny? Pretty much. A little gross? Most certainly.

Kids Toys Marketed on Liquor Bottles

spoof_baby_bottle_liquor_brands.jpg

Yes, this is a spoof. No self respecting company making stuff for kids would stoop to this tactic nor would any liquor brand stand for it. Nonetheless, it's a humorous brand mashup we can all chuckle over for a few minutes in between our Super Bowl obsessions.

Thanks George.
