Jesus Gives Flat Chested Plain Janes Makeovers and Breast Implants

plugtv_jesus.jpg

AdFreak calls our attention to this freakishly weird video for England's Plug TV which features a Jesus fatty taking a trip down from the heavens to visit the dirty, raw wold of human beings. It doesn't take long before he's drinking and magically turning flat chested librarian types into large-breasted, bikini-clad hotties whom he takes with him for a ride in his mega-stretch limo. That is until Dad gets angry.

Predictably, the Catholic church is a bit miffed.

Friday Foolery: Vaginads, Boobs, Google, Keira Knightley, Agency.com

i_love_a_boy.jpg

- Tom Ford and Vulva fixate on a particular female body part and introduce a new advertising trend: Vaginads.

- Not that you frequent a laundromat all that often but if you do, you just might be assaulted by washing machines bearing gigantic advertising posters.

- We stir debate as to whether or not Mazda, which does still make cars, can still create good commercials.

- What's a week without an appearance by our favorite hottie, Obama Girl? This time she's hooked up with Giuliani Girl to support the troops on behalf of the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans Association.

- Look! Look! Look! Now you can blow an ad banner and make a website freeze!

Hugo Fragrances Hauls Out Mutual of Omaha Mating Ritual Dance

hugo_fragrances.jpg

We're having a really, really tough time deciding whether this new video promoting the Hugo Fragrances XY for Men and XX for Women is insightfully witty or over-the-top horrific. Using the male stalks female in the wild analogy, the video lets us observe the mating rituals of a man and a woman in a museum. The video leads to a website which features Jonathan Rhys Meyers and Bette Franke sparring in a boxing ring. All to promote dueling fragrances.

Dennis Told How to Catch Hepatitis C

hepatitas_day.jpg

Here's an odd little video calling attention to World Hepatitis Awarness Day on October 1. In the video, a stick figure character named Dennis is given advice on how to catch Hepatitis C. Hmm. Makes you want to wrap yourself with impervious plastic wrap and just separate yourself from the human race for the rest of your life. The video's message? Get tested.

This Commercial Break Sponsored by Cleveland's Brokaw

brokaaw_eran.jpg

This is a year old but look what fun Cleveland-based agency Brokaw has with it's own. An unsuspecting Brokaw employee named Erin gets the shit (well,not exactly) scared out of her when her co-workers decide to set off one of those air horns in her office. Hey, it's not news but we all need a commercial break from that sometimes. Consider this that break.

Yawn. Another Starlet Gets Nude For PETA

alicia_peta.jpg

PETA's digging deep now. Hitless for at least ten years, Alicia Silverstone (whom we still adore) has been tapped by PETA for their latest "let's get a celebrity nude" campaign. It's all to promote PETA's vegetarian stance and to share with us how much Silverstone's life has changed for the better by becoming a vegetarian. Watch as Silverstone get naked but not really. They always block the crucial parts. Anyway, see the video here.

Big Boobed Cheerleader Teases New Movie On YouTube

amy2.jpg

Oh we love how some marketers know exactly how to attract attention on YouTube. To promote the new Fox movie The Comebacks, which aims to do for sports movies what the Scary Movie franchise did for horror flicks, videos of a very pretty, double-entendre spewing, huge breasted hottie in a low cut cheerleader's uniform spouting valley speak are making the rounds.

In the videos, cheerleader Amy, who is the proud owner of magnetically eye catching cleavage, sits in the locker room and in the coaches office of the team telling us things like how hot the players are and how quarterback Lance, who stared at her during cheer practice, is "way hotter than Trotter." All while stroking (jacking off?) a baseball bat she's placed between her legs as she mentally imagines it's the real thing.

McDonald's 'The Savvies' Seeks Dollar Menunaires

savvies_toilet_paper.jpg

So there's this YouTube video contest called The Savvies Make the Logo Bigger points to that asks people to submit videos illustrating how they plan to become Dollar Menunaires just like the stuck-in-the-seventies dude in the contest video does by showing how to save money by turning an old pair of jeans into a pair of shorts...too short shorts, that is.

One of the best responses we saw in the five minutes we gave ourselves to witness this not so bad piece of CGMish marketing came from YouTuber JamesatWar who shared with us how to save money by using less toilet paper.

Horizon Air Convinces Sloggers The Slog Is Not the Best Way to Travel

the_slog.jpg

After spending some time on Horizon Air's The Slog, a site created by WONGDOODY which highlights the landmarks along the 200 mile stretch of Interstate 5 between Seattle and Portland - in order to convince us to fly the 200 miles instead of drive - we actually want to take the 200 mile drive just to see all the cool stuff the site highlights. OK, so it's not all cool, the road sucks and the rest stop bathrooms are disgusting. But the way WONGDOODY crafted the site - a collection of videos highlight each of "the slog's" oddities and frustrations Old West-style - lends a certain attraction to the road.

In addition to the site, the campaign also includes print, radio and a branded truck with a museum-like diorama of the road that makes stops along the highway. Brochures will also be handed out to travelers on the road convincing them Horizon Air is really the way to go. In all, it's one of the best airline campaigns we've ever seen.

Obama Girl, Giuliani Girls, Leah Kaufman Pay Respects to U.S. Troops

i_love_a_boy.jpg

Barely Political, the organization that created the Obama Girl and Giuliani Girls videos have gone in a different direction with their latest release, I Like A Boy. Rather than focus on a presidential candidate, the video, which stars Obama Girl Amber Lee Ettinger, Giuliani Girl Rebeca Dipietro and rapper Mims, salutes U.S. troops.

Partnering with the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans Association, the video features U.S. soldiers, their wives, girlfriends, friends and family singing along to the Leah Kaufman-penned and performed song, "I Like A Boy." Creator Ben Relles tells us, "It's sort of a a rockin' non-partisan salute to the US Troops - men and women - serving our county." Proceeds from the sale of the song, available on iTunes, will go to the Iraq Afghanistan Veterans Association.
