Oh how we love us a weird-ass, whacked out Japanese television commercial. This one, which, yes, is old, is for Suntory tea which claims to help those with high blood pressure. Though it's a very good thing the guy in this commercial has high blood pressure. Nothing like putting a positive spin on a health issue.
Sadly, we'll never see commercials like this here in America. Luckily, Japan hasn't yet heard of cause groups whose sole purpose is to remove every last vestige of humor from our lives...and from all out TV commercials.
This stuff writes itself, doesn't it. *sigh* What's the penalty for being subhuman again? Oh yeah, eight years with time served. *double sigh*
Free millions of something if you can figure this site out. Described as "In The Netherlands, Lily Allen's new single is called F*ck You!, a kind of tribute to former president Bush. You will probably never hear this song on the radio in the US and UK, so I guess that's why they came up with the Lily Allen Unf**ker, a online tool to manually censor or uncensor her new hit single."
I suppose. It's also NSFW.
There's a lot you can say about becoming more eco-conscious: that it's responsible, forward-thinking and personally/socially fulfilling, for example.
But in a spot called "Good Green," the Sundance Channel takes the go-green hype and staples on a passel of adjectives that ring both hollow and wince-worthy: sexy, trippy, fierce.
Confusingly, there's also a shot of Isabella Rossellini flirtatiously hugging a giant lobster.
WOW. Thanks for all the abstraction, BIGSMACKtv. We're definitely feeling the backhand.
OK, you all know here at Adrants we are fans of anything that's weird, wacky and wrong. But this Silk Soft-sponsored Danish toilet paper dispenser toilet dispenser is beyond wrong. Beyond wrong on so many levels. First, it's gross. Second, pulling toilet paper out of someone's ass pretty much guarantees it's going to have shit all over it already. And third, it'll make people puke causing the invention of a puke whole on the bathroom floor that, yes, will graphically represent the mouth of a person puking right back at you.
Renault's launched a microsite for the Nouveau Grand Scenic et Les Tests Cretins des Lapins Cretins, which translates to "The New Grand Scenic -- and Moronic Tests by Moronic Rabbits."
Resulting spots -- in which hyperactive buck-toothed rabbits quality-test Grand Scenics en masse and sans inhibition -- don't need any translating. The effort reminds us of Scion's Little Deviants, except more frenetic and somehow scarier.
When it comes to sports, there are rules. RULES! And they must, at all costs, be followed. No, we're not talking about a sport's *actual* rules. Rather the rules sports fans must follow lest they be...um...attacked my a huge guy in a bear suit?
And what are these all-important rules? Let us share with you:
1. Don't date within the Division.
2. Never, under any circumstances, tuck in your jersey.
3. Never take a call when all you should be doing is watching the game.

"Hand-crafted by robots, every can comes with the promise that you won't be able to tell the difference between it and the one before it.With no measurable taste of distinct flavor, you can enjoy Rotgutzen without ever wondering if it tastes 'good' or 'bad' or even 'OK.'"

Oh, and yea, if you haven't already figured it out, the whole things an interesting Red Tettemer-created anti-campaign for Ska Brewing...which makes actual real beer for grownups. And which has an actual, real website.
Alrighty then. All women wear bikinis, sundresses and short shorts while exploring the world on a bicycle, right? Oh, and let's not forget engaging in a little bit of bondage, too. Um, WTF? This, to sell a bike? Johnny Loco bikes. Yea, loco is right.
Created by New Message Amsterdam, the campaign will run in outdoor, print and online in The Netherlands, Spain, Denmark, South Africa and Australia. It was shot in South Africa by advertising and fashion photographer Rene Kramers.
