Coffee, Tea ... or Richard Kirshenbaum?

kirsh-mini.jpg

Sassy Richard of kirshenbaum + bond is launching a show on Plum called Creative Lunch. Think Oprah, except people will be picking at food while weighing in on almighty Creativity. Slated guests include Martha Stewart, Matt Lauer, and David and Dylan Lauren.

We've seen Richard talk before. He's mesmerizing, especially when he does that swishy thing with his hair. Also, he never ever capitalizes anything.

Hurry for self-fellating agency heads. Now here is a promotional image of Richard barefoot. (The PR company sent it to us, except 34098343908 times bigger.)

No word yet on the debut of a "k" magazine, featuring Richard on the cover in various states of simper, following the success of the talk show. We're sure they're working on it though.

Scott's Knows 'All in One' is the Way to Go For Guys

scotts_allinone.jpg

It's true. All guys are like this. We want simplicity in our lives. We want everything at our fingertips. We want to be coddled in luxury. We want it all. All at once. We want...All in One. Actually, truth be told, we're just lazy. So if we can cut the lawn while simultaneously barbecuing and watching the game, that's what we'll do. And we love that Scott's appreciates that.

MDC Partner agency zig created the spot, it's first work for the brand since winning the account last year. The spot is running in Canada.

Come On. Deforestation is JUST LIKE Plucking Out Earth's Chest Hair.

hair-removal.jpg

Here's a video that will make you think about deforestation in a painful, deeply personal way. Try not to cry.

Except this metaphor doesn't really hold. Because after that virgin pluck session, you get all rhino-skinned and totally impervious to the pain of losing your hair, one at a time, in an agonizingly slow manner.

I know this. I have conducted studies on my own anatomy.

Geico Caveman Finally Peaks, Begins Slow Humiliating Decline

And he's channeling John Travolta! (Thanks, MTLB.)

There you have it. Fame makes everybody a dancing monkey. Or it could just be SXSW aftershock.

Once You Go Black, You Go Jeff Dahmer. Wait, What?!

axe-choco-girls.jpg

That probably generated traffic trouble.

The sex-and-candy action took place last month in Sao Paulo, when 40 panty-clad girls stood eating chocolate body parts in public places. Pics appeared on Irresistivel.net, which pinpointed their locations and Orkut profiles via Google Maps.

- Copyranter says it's Big Tits Friday. OK, so he said it last Friday.

- Jenna Jameson launches post-porn career. Help promote her new movie, Zombie Strippers, by writing some taglines.

- Again confirming its belief people are idiots who can't determine the difference between a computer and a city, Apple, earlier this year, filed a complaint to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office claiming New York's new green apple tourism logo is "likely to cause confusion, mistake or deception in the minds of consumers." Who's really the idiot here?

Gary Busey Laughs Up Saints Row 2

gary_busey_saints_row.jpg

AdFreak says the pairing of Gary Busey and the game Saint's Row 2 is perfect. They are right. Both are whacked. Besides, what else has Busey got to do these days besides taunt Ryan Seacrest on the red carpet?

There's a reason why storage companies don't let you live in or work from your unit. This is that reason.

He doesn't even give Gram the flowers! Those cold-hearted Brits: crusading against hair care ads while nana knits doilies under lock and key.

The tagline: Safestore. For those things you just can't throw away. Brought to you by the geriatric sadists at Team Rubber.
