Applebee's Launches Social Media Tutorials

pintastic.jpg

Now this is funny. Hilarious, actually. Lexington, Kentucky ad agency Cornett just launched a video campaign for Thomas & King, one of the largest Applebee's franchises in the country. The agency teamed with several female "social media experts" for a series of tutorials on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest.

That's really all we're going to say about the campaign because if we say any more, we'll ruin the surprise.

Some Women Have A Thing For Giant Men

nestea_giant.jpg

While watching this new Nestea commercial featuring a budding relationship between a giant and a woman who finds him by spinning the bottle, one can't help but wonder the difficulties a couple like this would face in the bedroom. In any event, the work, from Wieden + Kennedy London is all about equating the giant thirst to a thirst for giant. Or...err...the other way around. Either way, it's trippy little commercial that will have you grinning.

FOX Saves Guys From Getting Slapped For Staring at Boobs

fox_movies_cleavage.jpg

Taproot India, whose site is still "under construction" (really?) and FOX are out with a humorous new video. The video highlights the fact subtitles are a pain in the ass (among other trouble they cause) and that FOX's new service allows everyone to watch movies in their own regional language. And prevent getting slapped upside the head by a hot woman with nice cleavage.

Me So Horny...Uh...Corny

me_so_corny.jpg

Ahahahaha! Good one. You just never know what's going to jump out of your candy bar in the middle of a library. The girl in this ad finds out when she opens a a Corny bar, a snack bar from the Netherlands. Created by Fitzroy in Amsterdam, the ad features a remake of the 90's tune Me So Horny.

Wacky stuff. But wonderful!

Perhaps the Dirtiest MTV Ad You Will Ever See

mtv_vocal_cords.jpg

Perhaps intentionally. Perhaps inadvertently. Either way, if you didn't know this MTV ad was entitled Vocal Cords, you might wonder what the hell you were looking at and who (or what) was doing the singing. This work of wonder comes to us from Sao Paulo agency Loducca

Breasts, Thighs, Legs. No, We're Talking About Chicken!

too_much_chicken.jpg

How do bikini-clad breasts bouncing in slow motion sell chicken? Oh wait. Bikini-clad breasts bouncing in slow motion can sell anything! But in this case, they're selling chicken. Or, well, distracting us from whatever the hell this Chick 'N' Mix is trying to explain to us. Something about too much chicken. But if they are comparing chicken to hot women with bikini-clad breasts bouncing in slow motion there can never be to much chicken, right?

Confused.

And, yes, we know it's not a real commercial.

You'll Never Guess Who's Having an Orgasm in This Ladies Room

Certainly there are any number of options of which parents can take advantage when it comes to advice on raising children. And, certainly, there are any number of ways to call attention to those choices. However, never before have we seen a strategy such as this one from Duval Guillaume for Flemish advice site Opoedingslijn.be. Watch and be surprised.

Keyboard Licker, Hairy Mommy Hugger Shill For AAMCO

aamco_weird.jpg

This AAMCO commercial is disturbing. Very, very disturbing. Somehow it connotes the fact that AAMCO can and does fix everything. Celebrating it 50th anniversary, the brand is out with a new campaign.

The spot in question and called Trust and it's all about, yes, trust. Trusting who you allow to sit in your cubicle, trusting who you allow to hug your mother and who you allow to be your massage therapist.

Strange.

Boob Job Now A Viable Concept to Sell Cars

fiat_boob_job.jpg

Over at his new BuzzFeed ad commentator gig, Mark Duffy asks, "How the hell this sells Fiats is a mystery." And he's right. Check out this ad from Leo Burnett Argentina that centers on what is supposedly a quintessential moment in every relationship; the boob job discussion. It's like they filmed the thing in the vein of "Honey, I'm pregnant" but went the route of cleavage instead.

Once the women in the ad tells her man she's getting a bob job, we are treated to the man's long, slow, swan dive-like fantasy into...well...just watch the spot. You'll see what happens.

But should this man really be this happy? Hey, we like deliciously gigantic wobbling breasts that burst forth from their top and wobble tantalizingly with every movement a woman makes just as much as any other guy. But fake boobs? Is that really something to get excited about? Immovable objects that, well, look totally fake? To each their own we guess. Personally, we prefer the real thing.
