joy_of_fix.jpg

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

If You Thought Your Wet Dreams Were Weird, Wait Until You See This One!

Feuchter_Traum__Wet_dream__-_YouTube.jpg

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.

Thorne_Travel_Advert_2014.jpg

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.

This (No, Really), This (Honestly), This (Seriously) Is the Weirdest (THE WEIRDEST) Life Insurance Ad You Will Ever (EVAR) See

Beagle_Street_bathtub.jpg

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?

jeter_2.jpg

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.

Vancouver Whitecaps 'Sexist' Video Pulled...Because Woman Watch Soccer?

vancouver_whitecaps_woman.jpg

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?

This Nun Has A Dirty Little Habit

dirty_little_habit.jpeg

OK, now we've gone too far. Are we really to believe that a washing machine needs a cleaning product to clean it when, um, let's be honest, it cleans itself every time it runs because, oh, WE PUT DETERGENT IN EVERY TIME!

Anyway, that little bit of logic hasn't prevented Tide from introducing its Washing Machine Cleaner product. Nor has it prevented Saatchi & Saatchi New York from exponentially overdoing a "dirty little habit" joke.

Because if we only advertised what people actually needed, there wouldn't be enough business to keep all those agencies and holding companies in business.
