Rokk Vodka Gives us Luxury, Status, And a Viking

rokk_vodka_adam_samberg.jpg

OK, this is hilarious, Poking fun at very over done ad concept you've ever seen, Rokk Vodka brings us back to reality. Delivered in seductive Euro accent, a beautiful woman intones, "Luxury, Status. Desire. And...a Viking." Oh, and, of course, a vodka. From that point on, it gets silly. Oh and there's Andy Samberg and Akiva Schaffer too.

We love it. Booze is just booze.

Guys, Would You Wipe Your Face With Your Balls?

true_clean_towel.jpg

No matter how close you are to someone, you don't want to pick up a towel and wipe your face with the same part of the towel with which another has wiped their ass. That's the premise behind True Clean towel and this highlighting the disgusting alternative.

The :90 video is :60 longer than the :30 it should be but it's humorous enough. And pretty disgusting if you think about it the next time you pick up a bathroom towel. Even more disgusting is the fact the shower curtain in this video is the exact same one we have in our bathroom.

Gross. Don't get us started on shower curtains. Particularly hotel shower curtains!

Polish Politician Pimps Political Prowess in Bikini

Katarzyna-Szczolek.jpg

Hey, if you're hot, why not use that hotness to get you elected to political office? Shoving aside the notion people might not take her seriously, Polish pop singer Sara May, also known as Katarzyna Szczolek, posed in her bikini for a series of ads.

She hopes the ads garner her the attention she needs to get elected for local office. In one ad, she appears laying on a beach wearing a bikini along with the copy, "Beautiful. Independent. Competent." Another, obviously going after animal lovers, shows her holding a puppy with the copy, "Honest. Sincere. Uncompromising."

We suggest an additional concept. Picture May, shot from behind, her ass clad in a thong as she peers back over her shoulder atop the copy, "Dedicated. Delicious. Open for Business."

Triumph Bra and Miniskirt Welcome Visitors to Japan

tourism-bra.jpg

Well we haven't heard from Triumph in a while. No, not the motorcycle maker, the Japanese lingerie maker. You may remember some of the their marketing stunts such as the Ass Off which aimed to discover Japan's best but. Or the marketing of a bra that carried a quit smoking message. Or their introduction of bravertising in the form of a Hanshin Tigers Bra which honored the Japanese baseball team.

Now the brand is out with a bra designed to introduce tourists to Japan,. Yes, only the Japanese can come up with ideas like this. The bra - which is really a bustier - carries images of six Japanese landmarks including Mt. Fuji and the Asakusa district. And upon pushing one of three buttons on the bustier, a message will play, saying, "Welcome to Japan," in English, Chinese or Korean.

But wait, there's more! If a hot Japanese chick is going to walk around in this bustier and allow total strangers to press buttons atop her boobs, she might as well have a matching miniskirt she can flip up to show horny tourists a map of Japan.

Yes. Only from Triumph. Only in Japan.

Undergarments in a Bunch Over Bundaberg Rum Apology

bundaberg_run_suitcases.jpg

The Bundaberg Rum saga which had the distiller first blow up then roast a crocodile on a golf course now has the brand apologizing for it's first apology. In reaction to an apparent outcry over the blowing up of a crocodile, the brand issued an apology. Apparently, that apology wasn't good enough so the brand issued another.

It's all just plain poppy cock. But take note of the suitcases.

Man Kills Alligator With Golf Tee Pea Shooter to Make Shot

bundaberg_rum_alligator.jpg

OK so blowing up kids in a classroom didn't go over so well but when it comes to using menacing alligators to sell rum, all is well. And funny.

In this commercial for Bundaberg Rum, which, for a few seconds gets lost in an overly long and complex set up, a man, looking to make a putt, is aided by the very gentleman who invented Bundaberg Rum...from an oversupply of molasses.

Just watch. The spot works. at least it works for us. We have no idea what PETA's stance on this will be though.
