That Burning Sensation May Actually Be Sunbeams, Not Hemorrhoids

sunbeam_ass.png

We used to have a friend who, when trumped by life, would look up at the sky and say, "Sun, stop shining out of my ass; it burns." We thought this expression originated with him, but apparently Greenpeace has heard it too.

The spot promotes energy efficient light bulbs (do they stink like we now imagine them to?) and was put together by Park Village London for Escape Partners. Directed by Sven Harding.

'Teeth' Horror Film Adds Briars to Places They Shouldn't Be

teeth.png

We're not really sure what to say about this movie trailer for Teeth, aside from that it involves a gynecology appointment gone horribly awry and an INSATIABLE VAGINA FULL OF TEETH.

And really grotesque punning involving roses.

Imagination is a seriously fucked-up place. Props out to Candace from DC, who sent it to us.

DILDOS ATTACK OUR INTERNETS! Oh Wait, It's Just a Led Zep Campaign

led_zep_dildos.jpg

We weren't really sure what we were expecting when we clicked on this link to check out the new campaign for Led Zeppellin's Mothership. But suddenly we heard some kinky Zep music and saw our personalized Google page get invaded by black and red dildos, which seemed to be growing.

With time we realized they were just Mothership dirigibles, which proceeded to blow holes through our portal. Uh, thanks, Zep.

NetDisaster.com is helping Led Zeppellin fans take over the 'net, one site at a time. According to the pressie, "Over 100,000 sites have been Zeppelised so far." Well, that's only mildly disturbing.

Philips Norelco Introduces Us to Second Puberty

second_puberty.png

Not cute. You mean we have to go through it twice? And apparently the second time around yields less pleasant fruit than the first time -- which generously bestowed us with about an inch in a half of boobage.

This is part of Philips' ongoing Shave Everywhere campaign.

Q: How Do You Get People to Eat Oats and Grains?

kelloggs_horse.png

A: Use a horse.

This ad was put together by Anonymous Content and agency Leo Burnett Int'l for Kellogg's Nutri-Grain bars. According to the pressie, "This high bred fancies work, hard jumping and racing, so he makes sure to take time to enjoy the good life with Nutri-Grain."

Yeah. We're sure that's exactly what people are going to be thinking (as opposed to "Oh, this is horse food").

Gotta love the British accent, though. Hey, you know what we miss that's not on TV anymore? Mr. Ed. Kudos to Anonymous for bringing on the recall.

Deflate That Bitch Says Czech Liquor

fernet.jpg

Copyranter points us to a Czech commercial that illustrates something that, at certain points in in his life, every man wishes was possible. While commenters deride it for its possibly sexist nature, if the roles in the spot where reversed, as they often are in real life, would anyone be complaining? No, we'd be laughing just as we do at most ads which portray men as blithering, complaining idiots.

So no matter whether you are male or female, enjoy what this commercial has to offer. An instant off button for your annoying bf/gf/spouse.

Notebook of Napkins Stretches Limits of Logic

napkin_notebook.jpg

Euro RSCG has created spiral bound notebooks with pages made of actual napkins because, as we all know, great ideas usually come when we're not in the office and are away from our computers and scratch pads and having a pad made out of napkin pages would solve that problem, right?

Well, it might if you had the actual notebook with you which you wouldn't because you left it in the office with all your other stuff which is why all you have to write on is an unbound napkin laying on the bar.

Here's Something That Involves Mobile Phones, Horny Pigs and Germans

saucoole.jpg

This microsite is for Debitel AG and it was built by Robert & Horst. We've deduced it has something to do with getting a new mobile number every 30 seconds. Maybe.

The million-dollar question is, why does the lei'd pig get laid until she's red-faced after a disembodied voice says "Hello"? That really puzzles the shit out of us.

Update: Adrants reader Angela from Germany has kindly elaborated. The text reads, "Every thirty seconds a cheap number." But the expression used for "cheap number" also means "quickie," which is why the pigs get down and dirty after 30 seconds go by.

Thanks, Angela.

Led by MTV, Virtual Beauties Get the Lewd Eye

gorgeous_second_life.jpg

MTV, Ford Models and Elizabeth Arden are conducting a cattle call for the best-looking avatar. You can enter from the virtual world for The Hills, a TV show.

It was probably stupid to think even the virtual world would be exempt from aesthetic groping by the "culture makers." But hey, at least it's a lot easier -- and maybe less morally constricting? -- to get work done to meet the standard. Whatever it is.

Lowe's Labels Chistmas Trees Family Trees, Blames Creative Process

Picture+2.jpg

In the first of what is sure to be many holiday advertising fuck ups, Lowes is taking heat for calling Christmas trees family trees in one of their recent catalogs. "Come on kids, let's go take a nice family trip down to Lowe's and pick up a family tree for the living room. After all, it's nice to stick a tree in the house isn't it?"

Lowe's has apologized for what it is calling a "breakdown in our own creative process." Um, right. Like no one noticed the non-sensicle heading, "family trees," above a shot of those cone shaped trees people like to put decorations on and presents underneath? Were human resources' PC police running the creative department the day the catalog was created?
