In a new video from our friends over at Barely Political, our fave video girl, Obama Girl and her friends take on President Bush hotly pointing out his lameness all while wishing everyone a happy holiday season. Bush might be lame but the girls sure aren't.

Butternuts Beer & Ale Billboard Comes Alive, Attacks Pedestrians

porslap_times_square.jpg

Earlier this month, we wrote about Butternuts Beer & Ale farm-themed campaign that's gracing the CBS SuperScreen in Times Square through New Year's Eve. As a follow on to the campaign, the brewer's agency Woods Witt Dealy & Sns have cobbled together a Drink Responsibly video about getting smashed. And this kind of smashed involves an angry billboard and a bunch of beer cans.

Man in Testicle Suit is Deployed onto Ice Rink. Hijinks Ensue

carpe-testes.png

Ever consider funding the Sean Kimerling Testicular Cancer Foundation?

If you haven't, watching a man dressed like balls get slammed into a window might convince you to. And even if it doesn't, you might wander into a bathroom to check your 'nads, which is almost as good.

(Sidenote on the video: Giant pubes on the ice! Giant pubes ON THE ICE!)

See more videos by agency Struck at Carpe Testes (aww, cute URL).

Ditched Toys Are the Reason We've 'Smurfed' Up Christmas

wearethetoys_.jpg

"So what if I'm gay? You let my rainbow fade away," accuses a Care Bear in this awesome video where toys rebuke cynical adults for ditching them after puberty, thereby ruining their Christmases -- and ours -- forever.

And if our He-Man could talk, he probably would be just that ditzy.

Thanks go out to Grey, Vancouver for putting it together.

Picnicface Bitchslaps Us with Powerthirst Rocket Edition

thirst_quenched.png

If you, like every other college student suckling from Facebook, enjoyed the first Powerthirst ad -- a spoof on testosterone-rich energy drink ads that make ridiculous promises -- then you'll be marginally interested in watching the spot for Powerthirst Rocket Edition, brought to you by Picnicface and College Humor.

Now your favorite non-existent drink comes toting new flavors (MANIMAL! FIZZBITCH! GUN!) and new words for your lexicon like "beveryman," "preposterone" and "douche-fag."

And not only will you be preposterously good at sports, you'll win at irony, art and "everything forever!"

Testimonials added for effect.

Toastvertising Rears its Crunchy and Delightful Head

toastverts.jpg

Unless the Virgin Mary toast phenomenon counts, we don't see much of a future in toastvertising.

(A moment of emotional wrestling: We once had a Hello Kitty toaster that burned a Hello Kitty-shaped head onto our bread. That was actually pretty awesome.)

Anywho, Martijn at Fresh Creation's got the meat on toastvertising, as well as the making-of video for the Book of Spam/toast ad linked above.

Arnold Shares Agency Culture with Award Show Reflections, Tame Insights and Bad Rock

magic_awards.png

Lest we perceive Arnold as naught more than a passel of salty stripper-lovin' pervs (that's how we like 'em!), the agency has decided to educate us on its "culture" with a series of online videos.

The first installment, which is understandably very boring (the better to fight the "perv" connotations), is all about the AdColor Awards, which took place in Boca Raton, FL in early November.

Listen to one employee wax poetic about the award show's "positive messages." And hear snippets of quotes from people whose titles include Change Agent, All-Star (like Magic at left), Innovator, Legend, and other monikers whose meanings we don't feel super-clear on.

Stay tuned for more episodes that feature different employees from its offices in DC, Boston and NY.

Rosie Gets All Snot-Nosed Over Blogger's Choice Awards

rosie_bloggers.png

Ever wonder what celebrities (including ourselves) do with the promotional packages you send them? Rosie O'Donnell put her reactions on video, for no less than a gift package from the Blogger's Choice Awards. We like how she gave us a full-face Chris Crocker shot for, like, two seconds.

Uh ... we don't think that's a giant pencil, Rosie.

Journelle Lingerie Creates Visual Feast of Beauty

journell_lucie.jpg

For Journelle's new "lingerie concept" concept store at 5th and 17th in New York City, WIKA Director Gabriel Winer shot five soundless films featuring New York women alluringly move about their apartments showing off their lingerie and their beauty. The films are being projected on a flat glass wall which separates the dressing rooms from the rest of the store.

First, we have Sam, the auburn-haired, freckled, girl-next-door modeling simple, white, tame underwear. Then, we have Aslin, an exotic looking brunette slowly going through her morning routine while offering us beautiful views of herself and the lacy black booty-barring lingerie that leads one to believe there's still a man in her bedroom.
