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.
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.

Here's a fun one. To illustrate the Fiat Uno's great fuel economy, Leo Burnett Tailor Made in Brazil launched a campaign called If Pee Were Gas. The agency installed flow monitors of sorts in urinals. Based on the amount of pee dispensed by the urinal visitor, an image of the Uno on a flat screen mounted above the urinal would travel a certain distance. The more pee, the further the car would travel. Check out the case study video below.
As pundits and critics argue whether or not social media is reason Pepsi recently lost market share, the brand is out with a new, global campaign that, well, leads one to believe Pepsi now causes hallucinations, stops time, allows for teleportation or just plain fucks with your mind. What other conclusion could one come to after viewing this :90 from TBWA\Chiat\Day?
Somehow touting news radio programming, France's Le Mouv is out with a continuation of its controversial ad campaign which carries the headline, "Not everything was better before." Apparently created by DDB Paris, it's latest entry involves old school condoms and a hell of a lot of puking.
Previous efforts include a poster of a white boy holding a sign which reads, "We will not go to school with negroes."
Dr. Schnoz, the "Nose King of Miami," is at it again with another Old Spice spoof. This one features "the man standing next to the man who could make your man look more like me" reading romantic novel Fifty Shades of Grey.
Last week, the good doctor, Dr. Michael Salzhauer, came out with his initial Old Spice parody which, to date, has garnered 205,993 views. Can Salzhauer reclaim the glory this week? We aren't sure. We called the initial work the worst Old Spice parody we have ever seen. Then again Rebecca Black's Friday Friday has achieved over 30 million views to date.
This is perhaps the oddest tire commercial we have ever seen. After all, we're talking about tires here and all every tire commercial focuses on is what the tire is made of, how great it grips the road and how affordable it is. It's basic price and item type stuff.
So when we stumbled upon this Kumho Tire commercial over at Who Is That Hot Ad Girl, our first thought was, "Wait, hot girls in a tire commercial? When does that ever happen?"
The ad focuses on a group of finds out having fun at the beach while a droll voiceover intones things about friends, love, life and...the weather before ending with an excitable "Let's go!"
Odd. But, hey, who really wants to see yet another same 'ol tire commercial when you can watch hot girls frolic on the beach?
Well here's an interesting approach to promoting a hook up site. Established Men, a site that "connects ambitious and attractive girls with successful and generous benefactors to fulfill their lifestyle needs," is out with a billboard campaign. This one, spotted in Boston by an Adrants readers, has a bit of a twisted message.
The billboard carries the headline, "When your daughter asks you why she has to study for her exams...show her this picture" alongside an image of a young, fit woman with her arms around an older, far-less-than-fit man.
Don't do this to your grandmother. It's just cruel. Man up and stop using your grandmother's death as an excuse not to go into the office for a job you hate. It's just wrong. Do the right thing. Get a better job on Zonajobs. An intriguing piece of work from DraftFCB Buenos Aires
