This is hilarious. So last week, lots of people were in Austin for SXSW which is is three events in one: an interactive conference, a film festival and a music festival. During the first half of the week the film crowd and the internet geeks descend. After the geeks leave mid-week and the music fans arrive, the city takes on an entirely different vibe.
We've seen hundreds of ads with hot looking women in them. We've seen hundreds of ads which make us scratch our head and exclaim, "WTF!?!?!" We haven't seen many that mash both together but we're pleased to bring you this ad for Nila Sliced Mushrooms courtesy of Flickr user simonclare.
One part pulchritudinous cleavage. One part Fungtastic headline. One part come hither and stick your throbbing member between my huge breasts until you fill this can with your uncontrollable lust look. And you've got the perfect "WTF was that but it sure felt good" ad.

So this is what what it takes now to sell milk. Yup. Goofy videos that are knock offs of other goofy videos (movies? bands?). For Got Milk, Goodby Silverstein & Partners offers up One Gallon Axe, a rock band video that, well, you just have to watch it to truly appreciate its weirdly odd goodness.
This is only marginally disgusting. Also, it's a promotion for "Test Your Breath," a campaign for Scope by the charmers at Dentsu and Crush.
Test your toxicity -- er, breath -- at the website.
Here's our big question: why does the guy in the elevator know what rhino shit smells like? Even even if somebody's breath did smell like rhino shit, our heads wouldn't immediately go there because we lack the appropriate frame of reference.
We'd be like, "Ooh. Stale bacon mixed with carcass of month-old monkey fetus." Because you know, we deal with that stuff in everyday life.
Ah yes, that occasionally embarrassing morning moment when you find yourself (if you're a guy) tenting your sheets with no way to hide the fact you're sprung. Either due to that early morning dream about the hot girl you saw on Flickr and are now having sex with in your mind...or the serious need to take a piss, morning wood is something all guys have to deal with from time to time.
The movie American Pie made the term MILF famous. You hear it everywhere. Even where you shouldn't like in kid's movies. Somehow we don't think the same will happen with the term Shmmom or Smoking Hot Minivan Mom. Yea, we know. It's a mouthful. Leave it to a local car dealer to think up this crap.
Imagine The Warriors took place in present-day Manhattan. But replace the vicious gangs with refugees from Flashdance.
Before you virtually bitchslap us and go, "Why would we EVER do that?!", be forewarned: somebody already has.
Can -- you -- dig -- it?
The client: MTV.
AdFreak drew our attention to this ad for Philippine rock radio station NU107, which betrays pretty negligible knowledge of rock music. And logic.
The text reads, "The 80's: When looking like a ladyboy got you all the ladies." Imagery: what looks like a Kiss band member ... with boobs. (An homage to Marilyn Manson?)
More creative -- and a small dissertation on Kiss, Poison, rock-dandy dress codes and lack of actual boobage among male '80s rock band members -- at AdFreak.
It's really too bad everybody can't be Chuck Klosterman.
If you want to see a really, really weird ad about Nomis, logos, trophies, attention, sponsorship, endorsements and boots then you really need to watch this quirky video for Nomis boots (we call them sneakers here). The ad was created by Johannes Leonardo, a new agency founded by former Saatchi & Saatch EVPs Jan Jacobs and Leo Premutico.
