Diesel Sticks Giant Sneaker Up Giant Ass

diesel_ass_sneaker.jpg

There just really not much to say about this Diesel sneaker commercial which has a giant sneaker chasing a giant ass around until it corners the ass and shoves itself up the ass's crack. But this is how we sell sneakers today. Though in Diesel's case, it's right on brief because, well, the brand just wants you to Be Stupid.

Warning: This Commercial Hurts

frosty_jack_cider_sit.jpg

Ever get up in the middle of the night to have a little snack and end up making so much noise you wake up your partner? Well the guy in this Frosty Jacks Cider commercial makes a lot of noise, wakes up his lady and ends up accidentally sitting down on something not quite designed to say upon.

Of course, it being the middle of the night, the item sat upon might just become a bit of a toy if the couple turn out to be adventuresome.

NBC's Apprentice Promo Eerily Similar to Lemonade:The Movie

lemonade_movie_lemon.jpg

As you may have heard, Eric Proulx made a wonderful movie called Lemonade: The Movie. I had the pleasure of being one of 16 people featured in the film which told the stories of people who had been laid off, the trials and tribulations they went through and the new directions and successes they found.

Well, along comes The Apprentice. This year, the show is going back to its roots. Leaving behind the celebrity idiocy, the show will, again, focus on unknowns who were laid off during the recession and are currently trying to make a go of it. The promotional clip for this year's show is eerily similar to Lemonade: The Movie.

Summer's Eve Says Douche Before You Ask For A Raise

summers_eve_womans_day.jpg

So Summer's Eve runs an ad in Woman's Day offering women eight steps to take when asking for a raise and all hell breaks loose. Why? Because the first step is to make sure you use Summer's Eve Feminine Wash before you make the request.

Oh yes, people. We can't talk about "down there." On no. That area is strictly taboo. It's OK to tell people to take a shower, use good soap, style your hair properly, wear the right jewelery, be sure your skirt isn't too short, your heels too high, your cleavage overexposed. To be sure your shoes are properly polished, your deodorant appropriately scented, your posture professional, your handshake firm and your breath as fresh as a rose.

But to inform a woman, who may very well need what a feminine wash can provide, she might want to consider making sure THAT area is as fresh as all her others is a travesty. A blight against women. A disgrace. And an objectification of the entire female species as nothing more than a sweet smelling receptacle for the urgency of men.

Hey, did you expect anything other than a contrarian point of view from us?

Walkers Pitch Man Tosses Lionel Richie Out the Window

wakers_lionel_richie.jpg

So Lionel Richie. Remember him? The eighties pop star whose claim to fame was giving birth to Nicole Richie? Oh wait, he did have a few hit songs along the way so we guess he accomplished a thing or two. Anyway, he stars in a new AMV BBDO-created UK commercial for Walkers. Richie croons a hyper-annoying version of his Say You, Say Me eighties hit until he gets thrown out of the grocery store by Walkers pitchman Gary Lineker.

Hey, we could crap on Richie for appearing in such an ad but it's actually done quite well. After all, he does get thrown out the window at the end which is what any self-respecting person would do if accosted by an eighties pop star in the middle of a grocery run.

And seriously, can you really fault a guy for having a bit of fun and making some money along the way?

Agent Provocateur Does Twin Peaks

agent_provocateur_betty_sue.jpg

Intentional or not, this new video from Agent Provocateur entitled Betty Sue pays homage to the early ninties TV oddity Twin Peaks. From the music to the dancing in a strange room to the cinematography, it has David Lynch written all over it.

Alas David Lynch had nothing to do with this production. Perhaps a fan of Lynch, the video was directed by Johan Renck and produced by RSA Films. It's steamy. It's weird. It's right up Agency Provocateur's alley.

Sprint's 69 Way Better Than Verizon's or AT&T's

sprint_69.jpg

Maybe we're reading too much into this. Yea...we're sure we are but you have to admit toying around with the number 69 without making even the tiniest sexual innuendo is just a wasted opportunity. So here's Sprint touting their unlimited (and they do mean unlimited) mobile phone plan that does oh so much more than Verizon's or AT&T's. And this right after a study revealed iPhone users (using AT&T or course) have more sex than other mobile phone owners. Something's just not right here.

Japanese Ad Says Wrist Cutting is Sexy

sexy_wrist_cutting.jpg

Who new wrist cutting could be so sexy? A Japanese commercial for what appears to be a box cutting tool uses a wrist cutting motif - complete with pleated plaid skirt-clad school girls, of course. With copy like, "Let's go stylish with wrist-cutting. It's cute. When you cut, it doesn't hurt that much. The blood becomes tastier," the commercial fits squarely in the "this would never happen in America" category. But, thankfully, there are still people in this world with a gleefully twisted sense of absolutely politically incorrect humor. And we could all use a dose of that from time to time.
