- Prior to the premier, Mad Men season 3 leaks on iTunes just long enough for a bunch of madcap bloggers to publish stuff like this.

- Social media cool-kid Jeremiah Owyang leaves Forrester, calls his time there "a grand adventure!"

- ...and after Juno, Diablo Cody gives us an exorcist man-eating queen bee. With requisite dorky hot friend.

Because It's Never Too Soon to Put the Pasties on Penny.

girl-breastfeeding-doll.jpg

We were thinking the other day about all the technological advances that happened with dolls when were kids: the kind with the hair you could cut that grows back, or the one whose hair changed colour when you ran a cold hairbrush through it, or -- our personal favourite -- the one that pissed into a changeable cloth diaper! after suckling real fluid from a bottle.

So maybe Spanish doll maker Berjuan is adding a logical cobblestone to what's already a long illustrious tradition. Still, this demonstration for Bebe Gloton, a doll little girls can pretend to breastfeed, left us suffering from WTF Face.

Online Game Campaign Promotes...Bras?

evony_bra_cleavage.png

This is hilarious. American Copywriter has put together, in chronological order, a series of online ads for the free online video game, Evony. The early ads can certainly be seen as relating to the medieval nature of the game. But as the ads progress, one wonders wheter or not Evony has turned into a dating site or a retailer like Victoria's Secret or Frederick's of Hollywood pimping cleavage-enhancing bras.

Odd. Just odd.

Fashion Sale Trumps Fiance's Well Being

UI_designer_sale.jpg

Some women (oops. excuse us, PC police, some people) will take any chance they can get to score a discount on the latest in fashion. Even if it means forgoing the safety of a loved one. But we're not quite sure anyone would really know what to do with a ransom message that arrived on a VHS tape. That's sort of like asking a 15 year old to send a text from a pay phone.

Dude Catches Laptops in His Butt

laptop_butt_msi.jpg

OK so first there were the Cutwater-created videos for Ray-Ban which had a guy impossibly catching sunglasses on his face. Now we have a video of a guy catching a laptop in his...wait for it...butt. Yes, over and over again laptops are tossed into this guys butt and he catches them. Already almost a million views.

The McDonald's Anus Burger is Always A Good Laugh

mcdonalds_anus_burger.jpg

We know we're (actually it's just me) spelling challenged here at Adrants but our typos are usually pretty boring. While this typo (intentional or not) sent to us by a reader is certainly not the first time it's been made, it's hard to pass up a little bathroom humor every once in a while.

Buying a Fork For $151? PRICELESS!

Target.png

Having exhausted all contacts, (okay, I asked one person I knew), I'm going under the assumption that what I got sent to me is actually a viral campaign for Target, because, well, THERE'S BIG RED LOGOS EVERYWHERE. I appreciate a good one-line gmail stealth campaign as much as the next person, but if this is actually for the retailer, an otherwise clever idea and simple execution of the awkward price proposition was absolutely wasted.

To go through the trouble of avoiding brand mentions but then give the idea away right as you enter the site seems like a waste. If this isn't for them? It's okay. I'm an ad blogger. Facts don't matter with us when compared to real journalists. Either way, it's still a whacked site and props to the creators.

Viagra Ice Cream. All The Kids Are Doing It!

Viagra.png

Apparently London hates vanilla. (That's as far as I go with the references--for now.) The UK based Icecreamists have come out with the next step in custom ice cream evolution. Billed as natural Viagra, the ingredients are supposed to stimulate almost nealry closely as good as the little blue guy. The ice cream weapon of choice summons punk rock royalty too: The Sex Pistol. Other naming greatness from the group includes God Save The Cream.

My work here is done.

Don't Flush That Toilet! Pee in the Shower Instead!

pee_shower.jpg

This is what being eco-friendly has come to. Urging people to pee while taking a shower. Yes, it's true. There's really nothing else to say about this Brazilian effort to save water by not having to flush the toilet.
