Here's a "banned commercial" from China that touts a product that is guaranteed to protect women from rape and abduction. The translation to English is almost as funny as the video itself. Pick up a pair, ladies. It will scare the crap out of the creeps (well, most of them) away and keep you safe. Via.
Oh and Recommended Videos spits out this oddity afterwards.
OK so while these may be the only car wash ads you've ever seen (seriously, when was the last time you ever saw a car wash ad?), they are certainly the strangest. But we love the "come clean" concept. It's like a confessional except with water and scrub brushes. The ads, created by TAXI Vancouver, are for Hughes Carwash.
Perhaps summing up this Mike's Golf Club Shop ad the owner, Mike Mixson, shot with his camera phone, YouTube commenter, VicInNocal wrote, "That's what all ads should be - just something quick that describes what it is you do or what service you offer, and where people can find you. Not some forced & lame attempt at being funny or groveling for customers like most modern day commercials do. This ad reminds me of "Head On, apply directly to the forehead. Head On, apply directly to the forehead."
This is one of the most awesomely weird commercials we have seen in a very long time. It's for a cereal brand called Oatmeal Crisp and it features various "crunching" competitions between the cereal and a tortoise, a duck, a marionette and a pair of robots. But, by far, the duck version is the best. Like any good wedding slaughter, there's lots of screaming and lots of "blood."
In this Belgian ad for the Vallformosa winery a very Most Interesting Man-looking man named Rodriguez Diaz Perez Borges Y Cabron de Fernandez Figueroa Y Pintxos de Martinez is visited by his dead father who urges him to sell more cava. He then urges all Belgians to have more sex so more babies are born so when they grow up they can drink all the cava Rodriguez Diaz Perez Borges Y Cabron de Fernandez Figueroa Y Pintxos de Martinez plans to make. Get it?
Oddity this great can only come from DuvalGuillaume.
You know, after seeing Kmart's Draftfcb-created Ship My Pants and, to a lesser degree, Big Gas Savings, you wonder what the agency could possibly come up with next that would be even remotely interesting. Well, George Parker be damned, the agency has delivered again with Show Your Joe, a co-branded effort with Joe Boxer.
In a ad, six men dressed in a tux on top and boxers on the bottom perform jungle belles with, yes, their junk. And this is how we sell underwear in 2013. Your grandmother will be horrified!
As, ahem, hand jobs go, the gig is pretty straight forward. Not much skill is required. Unless, of course, you have the finesses of an elephant operating a bulldozer with a bear trap as a back hoe attachment.
However, when it comes to hands given the job of selling LG Smart TVs, the gig is a little bit more difficult and requires a bit more skill as you will see in these six, hand-powered ads illustrating epic battles for the remote.
Seriously. We've never before seen such skilled hands. The jobs these hands do are simply amazing. It makes regular hand jobs look, well, positively fruitless, limp and entirely unsatisfying.
Ukraine-based Escape created the...ahem...hand jobs.
What's the best cure for a hangover? Don't let yourself be misled by all those organic concoctions that do nothing but make you smell funny. No, the best cure for a hangover is more booze. Just ask the experts, the Russians. Admittedly well known for getting their epic drink on, they have a product called KBAC/kvass which is created by the fermentation of flour and malt and results in a beverage with 1.2% alcohol, just the right amount to take the edge off a hangover.
Or so we are led to believe in this Red Pepper-created commercial. Because after all, this method is akin to fighting fire with fire which, wait a minute, firefighters actually did employ this as a fire fighting tactic so maybe drinking more booze in the morning is all good. OK. Sounds great to us!
As part of its Something Special Campaign, Honda sent a ghost hunter to Ernie Santos who claimed his 1996 Honda Civic is haunted. Apparently, the spirits in the car were victims of some sort of crime or accident.
Honda sent the ghost hunter, Erik Vanlier of Valley Investigators of the Paranormal, in response to a comment Ernie left on the brand's Facebook page.
Following the encounter during which Vanlier asks the spirits to leave, Santos reports he no longer senses the whispers and odd sensations he previously experienced while in the vehicle.
We love the quirkiness of Barton F. Graf 9000's work for Little Caesar. BFG just has a wonderful way of capturing the mundane and turning it into something really interesting. The High 85? WTF? Like how do you even begin to think in a way that allows you to arrive at oddball hilarity like the High 85? Brilliant.
A second spot takes the simple expression of "Ohhh" and turns it into a cavalcade of silliness that's just this side of stupid.
The agency has done a fantastic job bringing to life the oddity of the brand's Little Caesars "pizza pizza" character. And they've made pizza ads fun to watch again.
