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