coffee_shot.jpg

In a classic and very funny implementation of the these-are-all-the-people-who-don't-need-your-product-which-is-exactly-why-you-do approach to marketing, BBR Saatchi & Saatchi Israel is out with a new ad for Coffee Shot.

The ad is a rapid fire onslaught of all the reasons why certain people don't need a shot of coffee and, of course, why you do. It's so rousing, you might not actually need a shot of coffee after watching.

Watch This Super Crazy Ad In Which People Walk on Their Hands And Eat With Their Feet

media_mart_feet.jpg

This is, by far, one of the craziest ads we have ever seen. It's for Austrian delivery service Media Markt and we are drawn into a world in which, well, everything is upside down. People walk on their hands and eat with their feet. And because their hands are busy doing all the walking, Media Markt is there to, ahem, lend a hand.

This Creepy Bank Ad Will Freak You Out For Days

firstbank_doll.jpg

What do banks, yard sales and creepy Chucky-like dolls have to do in common? Nothing unless you are Colorado-based FirstBank. With help from TDA_Boulder, the bank is out with a super creepy ad in which a guy finds a doll at a yard sale and the old lady who's selling it says he can have it for free.

But, as we soon find out, free isn't always a good thing. Unless, of course, we're talking about free checking from FirstBank.

Coming to the aid of Croatia which currently suffers 50% unemployment among the country's youngest workers and the other 50% who are doing all they can to stay afloat, Orangina, with help from Achtung, has brought its brand of crazy to the workplace Dollar Shave Club-style.

We didn't read all the subtitles but it sure looks like an awesome work productivity effort. Hope it works.

Neutrogena Repackages Sunscreen Product For Idiots

Neutrogena_Cloudscreen.jpg

This is brilliant. And yet, such a sad indicator of how stupid people are. DDB Brussels is out with work for Neutrogena's new Cloudscreen sun protection product. Why Cloudscreen instead of sunscreen?

Because even though people know that UV rays can still get to you through clouds, they are too stupid to use sunscreen on cloudy days. So Neutrogena just repackaged their same old sunscreen product and called it Cloudscreen.

Now when idiots go to the beach on a cloudy day, they now have a product they can understand.

Watch These Hipsters Hijack This Beer Truck in Slow Motion

garagista_hipsters.jpg

So it's a well known fact that most beer commercials portray their subjects as sex-crazed neanderthals or idiotic buffoons. This Garigista ad entitled The Hipster Hijacking takes the second notion to an extreme.

The ad gives us a collection of stereotypical hipster characters who, after spying a truck full of Limited Edition Garagista, go on a rampage, assault the truck driver and make off with the beer.

If There Were Porn in the 1800's, This Soda Ad Would be It

fentimans.jpg

Complete with a salaciously sexy bare ankle, a peeping Tom, a cross-dressing judge, an S&M dominatrix and a bobby in bed, this Fentiman's soft drink ad is probably as close to porn and it got in the 1800's.

This Coors Light Ad With A Talking Bear Head Hat Is, By Far, the Weirdest Beer Ad Ever

talking_bear_head.jpg

This Coors Light ad is definitely different and it's definitely strange. It talks about going to bed not in your bed, paint fights, pantlessness, fuzzy handcuffs, magic tricks, ballerina, awkwardly-placed Japanese men, men on a bus wearing sumo wrestling suites, plastic balls with men inside and donkeys named Richard.

Oh and it's narrated by a guy wearing a bear head hat. That talks.

Created by Leo Burnett Toronto, directed by Soft Citizen directorial duo The Perlorian Brothers, and edited by Rooster Post's Marc Langley, the spot aims to highlight possible adventures of the impending summer season. While drunk, apparently.
