Best Bus Stop Ever?

qualcomm_sled.png

While it would certainly be amusing to stand at a bus top, visit a mobile site and then be picked up by a super cool sports car or a dog sled or a bus filled with carnival characters but how exactly does all that sell Qualcomm mobile services? If, in fact, that's what this stunt is trying to sell. Because we have no idea since we were distracted by all the stunt's hoopla.

This makes about as much sense as the brand's keynote at CES.

'Airplane' Star Julie Hagerty Does Old Navy

old_navy_airplane.png

Damn! If only the inside of all airplanes looked like the inside of the airplane in this Old Navy Commercial! Starring Julie Hagerty, the soft-spoken actress of Airplane move fame, we see an airplane full of people seating themselves in what can only be described as the most stylish and spacious airplane interior ever seen. Love that swank cockpit too!

Too bad Leslie Nielsen wasn't on hand as well. Oops. He's dead. My bad. The ad, Now Boarding, was created by CP+B and debuted last night. Future spots in the campaign will also feature Mr. T, Boyz II, Rachel Leigh Cook and a few other surprise appearances.

'Tampon Versus Mooncup' A Hilarious Anti-Tampon Rap

tampon_mooncup.png

In this hilarious video, two "gangs" of women take on each other in a tampon versus mooncup bathroom rap competition. For those who don't know (we didin't), a mooncup is a silicon menstrual cup women can use instead of a tampon or sanitary napkin.

It's like a direct to consumer ad that's actually watchable.

Avis Invents Retractables Skis For Stealth Ad

ski_brogues.png

As a skier I'd love a product like this. Skis that retract into the ski boot so you don't have to carry them around at the end of the day. Check out this video in which a guy demonstrates his invention, SkiBrogues, fashionable leather-clad ski boots under which skis retract.

The video directs viewers to a website on which more details about the product can be seen. But in the right hand column of the site is a big ad for Hertz touting its weekly rental rates for those planning ski trips.

Garnier Fructis Delivers Bearded Optical Illusion

garnier_fructis_blon_beard.jpg

We like this Publicis Switzerland-created campaign for Garnier Frustis' "for any hair type" shampoo that features guys with long beards that aren't really beards and aren't really attached to the guys. Look closely at the ads and you'll see what we mean.

Copyranter thinks the campaign will win a Gold Lion at Cannes this year. It just might. Whether or not it sells any shampoo is, as always, of no concern to anyone.
