In one of the most hilarious and beyond-awesome promotions we have seen in a very long time, Toronto-based agency Bensimon Byrne has crafted a hilarious bit for its client, Carnivore Club, a meat-of-the-month club that sells all kinds of salami and other meaty delicacies.
The agency created a video that clearly illustrates how one can insure they get out of truly fucked up situations if only they get coverage from Fucked Up Insurance. Of course, Fucked Up Insurance is actually a subscription to Carnivore Club but from what we see in the video, it's exactly what will get one out of a very fucked up situation.
Did we write fuck enough?
And yes, the campaign actually registered and is using the domain fuckupinsurance.com (which redirects to f-upinsurance.com) as its promotional landing page.
There's just something about Japanese ads. The right amount of goofy. The right amount of innocent fun. The the right amount -- read: complete lack of -- political correctness. These elements combine to make truly light-hearted, fun advertising.
Now you're going to have to stow away your Facebook-style outrage to enjoy this one but try. Really try.
You have to wonder about this one. If you're TV shopping and suddenly tour TV salesperson turns into a freakish looking zombie and scares the shit out of you, how likely are you going to be in a mood to buy a TV?
But, who really cares. This one's not about selling. It's about shocking, getting YouTube views and getting press coverage. Oh and it's Halloween so it's timely.
Give it a watch. And the next time you go TV shopping, you might not want to turn your back on your salesperson. On and it's for Samsung and it was created by Cheil UK.
Here's a brilliant example of creativity. To tout the benefits of Sugru glue, the brand has created The Joy of Fix. Yes, it's a knock off of the famed 1970's book, The Joy of Sex. The work comes complete with diagrams on how to "enjoy the fix."
There's also a second poster that gets all sexual innuendo on us. The six steps on this poster include Feels good hard or soft. Sticky, but in a good way. Rub it gently. Use your imagination. No more dribbles. DO it anywhere and everywhere.
The campiagn also includes a hilarious video in which a guy get all friendly with a bunch of people while they fix things
This nugget is spec work. And we can see why. It's so off-the-wall weird that you can't even wrap your head around it to realize it just might be an ad for for some bank.
Entitled Wet Dream, is a visual onslaught of the sorts of things some people, but not most, might see in the middle of a proverbial wet dream.
To each his own is, we guess, the mantra here. Everyone's wet dream isn't necessarily going to be filed with women in bikinis with huge boobs or guys is Speedos with ripped abs.
Who knew? Apparently travel agencies do still exist. If you aren't one of the almost 1 million people who have viewed this so-bad-it's-so-good long form ad from Thorne Travel Agency then you need to stop what you are doing this very moment and watch. No, seriously. Drop everything you are doing right now and give this video a watch.
It's cringe-worthy awesomeness is beyond reproach. You can just see that it was done without the least bit of irony which, of course, is why it's so horrifically good! And it's one of those things that upon first view you're reaction is, "Oh this is totally a joke!" But, no. It's a real thing.
Well after that headline there's not much we can write to further our point about this odd Beagle Street Life Insurance ad created by The Corner. It's like a troll farts and then turns into one of those cute little furry creatures from Gremlims. You know, the movie that had that hot chick from Fast Times at Ridgemont High who took her top off and made Judge Reinhold lose it in the bathroom?
By the way, how's life these days, Phoebe?
So you all know how Derek Jeter is retiring and there was that Gatorade farewell, right? Well now Jeter has being honored with a different kind of farewell. The kind that comes from the minds of junior high school boys telling jokes and the bathroom and laughing at each other's farts.
But, hey, farts are funny. Especially when they're eminating from the stall next to you and it's all you can to to contain your laughter. Anyway, have a gander at this ode to number 2 from quirky sports slogan t-shirt maker, Sully's.
In, perhaps, the most baffling case of well, we're not quite sure, an ad for the Vancouver Whitecaps soccer team was pulled because some felt the ad was sexist. We're always up for a good controversy so we watched the 18 second ad waiting for some crazy, egregiously sexist moment.
After 18 seconds passed and the Whitecaps logo appeared, we scratched our head and thought, "Um...what?" The video is a candid capture of three women cheering on their team earlier in the season. It wasn't staged. No actors where hired. Just three women enjoying the game.
Some say the video, produced in slow motion, is reminiscent of Pamela Anderson n the opening scene of Baywatch. And that was sexist how?
Created by Strawberry Frog for Wasa Crispbread, we present to you, perhaps, the oddest cracker commercial you will ever see. And when we say odd, we don't mean bad. We just mean, well, odd.
