Teen Prefers Huge Cans Over Committment


In what could have been a far more hilarious take, though perhaps not as sweet, this Nestea commercial from Toronto-based Zulu Alpha Kilo has some fun with huge cans. In the ad, we have a teen professing her love to her boyfriend who, tongue tied and stymied, opts to put a huge can in his mouth instead of profess his love.

It's only awkward if you want it to be because is actually kind of sweet. But let's not let it slide that the other meaning of "huge cans" wasn't at least an afterthought during the creation of this ad.

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


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


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.

Neutrogena Repackages Sunscreen Product For Idiots


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.

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.
