Incarcerated Chickens Get Tortured by KFC's Colonel

button_fried_down.jpg

Portraying KFC's Colonel as a sadistic prison warden, this new Kentucky Fried Cruelty campaign, in three videos, explores the supposed life of a chicken while under the control of KFC. There's kicking, beating, drugs, electrocution - all the necessary elements one might imagine in a Hostel or Saw movie.

TBWA\CHIAT\DAY Guys (Maybe) Go AWOL; Launch AWOL Agency

shaun-white-offseason.jpg

Our enigmatic West Coast resource, who's really good at drumming up touchy rumours about the goings-on at TBWA\CHIAT\DAY, just sent us this Oakley spot by AWOL.

The spot depicts Shaun White's offseason life a lot less sexily than HP did. It's almost funny -- if you're thirsty for schadenfreude.

MORE IMPORTANTLY, the source quickly points out, agency AWOL is composed of Doug Mukai, Scott Wilson and Chris Dutton.

Because Some of Them Needed a Big Ol' Platter of Common Sense.

miller-lite-critic.jpg

Jaffe Juice pointed us over to this video of a super-talky Miller High Life employee dropping knowledge about this year's Super Bowl ads. Among his observations:

"Unibrow aside, would you wanna date a woman who smelled like nuts? Cashews in particular."

"If you're looking for work, it helps if you're a lizard."

We love how he can never seem to remember the brand name for all those beer ads he mentions.

Obama Wins Love, Loyalty of Pop Stars

obama-tatyana.jpg

Which means he deserves your love and loyalty, too. *eyebrow raise*

Here's a pro-Obama video produced by will.i.am of the Black Eyed Peas. In it, Barack Obama's "Yes We Can" speech is taken up as a kind of musical mantle by images of stars like Nick Cannon, Common, Scarlett Johansson, Tatyana Ali, John Legend ... we could go on.

We like a good-looking, nice sounding guy as much as anybody else, but with Super Tuesday in our faces, we recommend doing homework before voting. Here's one source, and here's some campaign ad analysis from the same non-partisan group.

Let us know if you've got other resources worth looking at.

Condescending White Guy Gets Ass Kicked by Asian Girls

man-in-plastic.jpg

Here's a creepy twist on the American Psycho premise.

You're in the Chinese laundry. Some hotshot white executive walks in and starts heckling the pitiable Asian owner in front of his family. He makes the nasty requisite Pokemon and Hello Kitty jokes, does the grating "oriental" accent. Things are clearly spiraling out of control.

Suddenly, a black dude in the background takes a call on his Jawbone Bluetooth headset. And in a noise-canceling orchestration Bose would be proud of, the world beyond his convo is efficiently muted.

Obama Girl Gets Super For Super Tuesday

obama%29super_girl.jpg

Once again Barely Political's Obama Girl is fighting for her man, Barak Obama. In this video, she take on the role of Super Obama Girl and kicks the crap out of Obama's competition like Superman cleaning up Gotham city. Of course, it's all to call attention to next week's Super Tuesday and urge people to get out and vote.

American Apparel Launches Video Channel With Booty Shaking

american_apparel_kristen.jpg

Fearless follower of all things American Apparel, Copyranter brings us American Apparel's apparent video debut with its own channel on YouTube. Now, aside from all those racy images over which everyone obsesses, we can all now obsess over booty in motion thanks to impossibly hot American Apparel model Kristen who tantalizingly wags her ass in our face while wearing polka dot panties. WTF? Is this supposed to sell clothes or become the next masturbatory fixation for teenage boys?

GoDaddy Might Out-Cheese Taco Bell with 'White Light'

whitelight_godaddy.jpg

Media Post says GoDaddy might do two spots instead of one. One will be a spot where some people talk about "beaver" and that "too-hot" Exposure spot.

The other one, which was approved by Fox amidst the beaver nonsense, is called White Light. Some geeky dude who spends Super Bowl Sunday registering domain names is rewarded by the appearance of a white light, out of which leaks a Hooters girl disguised as a GoDaddy cheerleader, and really really cheesy music that will make you wish GoDaddy folded in the '90s dotcom boom.

Ready to come into the light? Embrace it here (teaser only). There's a "too-hot!" director's cut available too.

Strange Foundation Says F#@k Death

fuck_death.jpg

This is just too weird to pass over. Apparently, there's an organization called Fuck Death whose mission is "the elimination of death through the generation and distribution of funds to strategically selected causes and initiatives worldwide." Basically, it combats "oldness." OK, then.

There's a website, a mission statement, a weblog, a store and a very strange video.

There's just one problem with Fuck Death's mission. If no one ever died, it wouldn't be too long before every last square inch of the planet earth were covered with human feet. That wouldn't be a pretty sight. We all want to live forever but death does have a purpose. It lets others live.

Lizard Prepares For Super Bowl Appearance With Supermodel

naked_lizard.jpg

Though the source won't confirm which advertiser this teaser is for except to say it's not for Geico which, of course, pretty much leaves Budweiser Sobe Life Water, we're just going to come right out and say it's for Budweiser Sobe Life Water. In the video, a bathing lizard, Lee, takes a call from his parents and shares the news he'll have the lead role in a Super Bowl commercial. Jokes about having to appear naked in the commercial ensue along with the fact he'll be accompanied by a supermodel.

We love how the Super Bowl itself isn't the stand alone advertising venue it once was. Sure there's always been hype pre and post game but we love when marketers craft teaser goodies such as this one to generate interest.
