Wonderjock Revolutionizes Ball Size a la Wonderbra


Here's proof we'll arrive at gender equality with increased commodification of one sex, not decreased commodification of the other. For those of you with ball anxiety, check out Aussibum's Wonderjock, which boasts "ball/extension support technology" and has a wicked little logo that's got us itching for some kind of South Park reference.

The text ad that appears over our e-mail reads, New cup pouch to lift and extend. Warning - it will appear larger. Awesome. And we dig that little star-studded PATRIOT motif they've got going on.

Guess this means the sock stash will last a couple weeks longer than usual. - Contributed by Angela Natividad

Sexual Fantasies Fulfill Old Khaki Campaign


Spanking and that old standby - milk poured over a woman's chest - are central elements in two ads for South African fashion brand Old Khaki. While we know we should say something pithy about this approach, for some reason we simply can't seem to come up with anything. Could we possibly be bored with this whole "sex sells" thing? Of course not. It's all about precarious positions promoting homegrown pleasure.

Drug Cures Headache Without Four Hour Erection


Advergirl, recently back from some sort of job-imposed exile, points to a direct to consumer drug commercial we can only wish to see in the United States. Free of law suit-induced medical blather ruining half the commercial, this ad tells the story of a Finnish "headplayer" who fell from fame due to headaches only to return with help from headache-reducing Pamfol 500. Much better than those four hour erection ads.

Exclusive! Tiger Woods Makes Fart Joke in Enclave Commercial


Yes, we are the first to bring you behind the scenes "stealth video" footage of Tiger Woods in a shoot for the soon to be released 2008 Buick Enclave. Our "insiders" leaked this very secretive video exclusively to Adrants only moments ago so you too could share in the glory of a spontaneous fart joke! It doesn't matter who took the Senate this week. Tiger Woods made a fart joke, "someone" videoed it and "someone" sent it to us hoping it might get some Lonelygirl15-like YouTube action.

Jeep Compass Promotes with Bobble Heads, Bad Singing


Apparently a major incentive to owning a Compass is creative license to sing real badly. Make your own musical avatars and wreak havoc everywhere you go with such cult classics as "Borderline" and "Hey Mickey" while your moody-looking Compass bobble-head nods cheerfully to something people wouldn't even cry to.

Yeah. We know. You're dying for a Compass now. - Contributed by Angela Natividad

Sex-Crazed Commercialism Doesn't Hold a Candle to Mother Nature's Perversions


We want to say no, it's not weird to see genitals in nature, but photographing them and putting them all together does vibe slightly weird. And calling the whole thing Nature is Sexy? It completely warps the meaning of "tree-hugger."

We're a little worried somebody at the office is going to come up behind us and catch us looking at ...

... at what? Fruit? A gaping hole in the ground? What? - Contributed by Angela Natividad

Yes. Blender Companies Can Make Virals, Too


Coffee and Manipulation points us to some virals for Blendtec, a company that hawks ordinary-looking blenders that are apparently not so ordinary. We were mesmerized in a pathetic sort of way when the man in the white coat fed a rake to his blender on the :90 second soup cycle.

We suspect these virals strike a chord because they speak to a desire to put things that will create fatal shrapnel in contact with swirling kitchen blades. But hey. It's not like videos go viral because they're deeply profound. - Contributed by Angela Natividad

Snickers Puts Us In Contact with Creepy Inner Child


The scenario: opening the front door, expecting to find a trick-or-treater, and finding yourself as a six-year-old staring back at you. TBWA/Chiat/Day writer Robert Kleman tells AdCritic that this ad "[taps] into the thought that if you were a kid this Halloween, you'd like to be given Snickers." We're happy he explained because we couldn't think further than "Dude. Fucking twisted."

The ad's a photographic collabo between Shawn Michienzi and Julian Wolkenstein. - Contributed by Angela Natividad

Babies Look After Best Interest in Condom Ads


These ads remind us why it's important to wear a condom - indeed, even to press condoms into the hands of unwitting couples who may need them more than others. The print reads "Don't forget to use 'em. Please." Nice touch with the baby handing over the protection. - Contributed by Angela Natividad

Axe Turns Tunnels Into Erogenous Zones


Continuing the road/tunnel advertising thing, this Axe ad in Sao Paulo ensured we will never see tunnels as mere means to ends ever, ever again. Tunnels are magical destinations in and of themselves. - Contributed by Angela Natividad
