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?

Boston Drops A Duece on Derek Jeter In Fart-Filled Ode to Number 2

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.

Teen Prefers Huge Cans Over Committment

nestea_huge_cans.jpg

In what could have been a far more hilarious take, though perhaps not as sweet, this Nestea commercial from Toronto-based Zulu Alpha Kilo has some fun with huge cans. In the ad, we have a teen professing her love to her boyfriend who, tongue tied and stymied, opts to put a huge can in his mouth instead of profess his love.

It's only awkward if you want it to be because is actually kind of sweet. But let's not let it slide that the other meaning of "huge cans" wasn't at least an afterthought during the creation of this ad.

Watch This Crazy Ad That Tells You Why So Many People Don't Need This Product But You Do

coffee_shot.jpg

In a classic and very funny implementation of the these-are-all-the-people-who-don't-need-your-product-which-is-exactly-why-you-do approach to marketing, BBR Saatchi & Saatchi Israel is out with a new ad for Coffee Shot.

The ad is a rapid fire onslaught of all the reasons why certain people don't need a shot of coffee and, of course, why you do. It's so rousing, you might not actually need a shot of coffee after watching.

Watch This Super Crazy Ad In Which People Walk on Their Hands And Eat With Their Feet

media_mart_feet.jpg

This is, by far, one of the craziest ads we have ever seen. It's for Austrian delivery service Media Markt and we are drawn into a world in which, well, everything is upside down. People walk on their hands and eat with their feet. And because their hands are busy doing all the walking, Media Markt is there to, ahem, lend a hand.
