- While Salesgenie has pulled its Panda ad, Salesgenie CEO Vin Gupta told The New York Times, "Pandas are Chinese. They don't speak German."

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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?
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.
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.
