There's a bunch of big cocks (no, not that kind) in UK advertising and they're all highlighted in this BBC video clip presented by British comedian Charlie Brooker. Not much else to say. Just watch. Oh, and who would you nominate for biggest cocks in US advertising?

Adrants Poll Winner Anna Strips Again For Marketing Book

anna_2_punk_marketing.jpg

Dare we say watching a woman stripping in a YouTube video is becoming a bore? It may be but since the readers of Adrants voted Anna, the woman who reads from the new book, Punk Marketing, while taking her clothes off to be hotter than Cleo, the other woman who did the same thing for the book, we thought it would be a disservice not to give you more of what you want. So, here she is for a second time; Anna stripping while reading Punk Marketing.

Nokia N95 Wants to be iPhone. Might Actually be Better

nokia_great_pockets.jpg

Not to be outdone by the iPhone, Nokia has launched Great Pockets, a site that creates an entire line of fashion with special pockets just to carry the burgeoning supply of digital devices we all use on a daily basis. Of course, the fashion are horrible and after a bit, you are whisked to another site that sings the glory of the Nokia N95, an iPhone wannabe that's a phone, mp3 player, gps, camera and video cam all rolled into one. It's entirely unsexy compared to the iPhone but Nokia's always made things that work quite well...and with more than one service provider. If you choose the N95, you won't be as cool as your iPhone toting hipsters but you might have a bit more cash in your pocket and a little more flexibility.

Southwest Tubes, Dial Takes on Axe, Rachael Does Dunkin'

rachaelray_pinup400x500.jpg

- Look! Look! Another YouTube video contest turns into an ad campaign! This time it's Southwest Airlines who's awarding the winner of its December contest with placement during NBA playofs in April. Are you just oozing with anticipation?

- Dial thinks it can get a piece of Axe's body spray action with the introduction of its RX Bodyspray. While Brandweek's Constantine von Hoffman thinks Axe's advertising has been "highly sophomoric," we'd choose to categorize it as highly successful. Dial has an uphill battle on this front.

- Eesh. Now we have to endure Rachael Ray in Dunkin' Donuts ads...through 2010!

- Massachusetts retailer Jordan's Furniture is offering a full refund to anyone who buys furniture before April 16 if the Red Sox win the World Series.

Norwegian Model Assures All Her Boobs Are OK

boob_girl.jpg

The music industry is insanely competitive and those hoping to get by need to have an effective shtick. Some work and others do not.

One gimmick that never seems to exhaust itself is the liberal showcasing of jugs. That's the prop Norwegian model Lene Alexandra Oien is leaning on to set off her blossoming music career. Check out her single, My Boobs are OK, and you'll get the gist. She even has an animated version of herself, a handy optical illusion Mariah Carey invented in Heartbreaker.

Word on the street is Lene had some kind of car accident, after which she stepped out of her vehicle and announced to surprised onlookers that her boobs were OK. Well, you can't really attack a chick who knows exactly what assets she brings to the table.

McDonald's Cures Oversleeping With Video Contest

morning_impaired.jpg

Aside from maybe the coffee, we can't really think of a reason why a visit to McDonald's is necessarily an activity that will help you wake up and face the day. Well, other then the fact you have to actually be awake to go to a McDonald's but let's not get bogged down in the details. One would assume a nice big, greasy, artery-clogging McDonald's breakfast would make you sleepy and want to crawl back into bed or, more likely, barf but McDonald's, with it's Moroch Partners-created Morning Impaired site thinks otherwise.

Unix Geeks Represent on Stanford Campus

killdashnine.jpg

Nothing is safe from an awkward rap spoof. CS Rapper Monzy appears at Stanford University to rap hardcore about the merits of Unix. Appropriately, the footage was later used in a documentary called "NERDCORE for Life."

Considering Linux/Unix are slowly taking schools by storm, it won't be long before it's been appropriated beyond the realm of its l33t h8x0r geek demographic.

"Unix geeks are among the most endearing geeks," a colleague observes with an almost pitiful expression. Yeah.

Kinky Voyeurism Promotes Episodic Web Video Site

network2.jpg

While it might be fun to watch and video tape your roommate's hot girlfriend strip down to her underwear, we're not sure it would be equally as enjoyable to watch and video tape your roommate strip down to his underwear and make out with his girlfriend while you watch. Oh wait. Sorry. Some people like that voyeuristic stuff. And, apparently, so does Network2, a destination for episodic web productions not destined or television but for your computer screen. A promotional video, created by Keta Keta, illustrates exactly what we're talking about.

Dell Copies Best Buy's Geek Squad With Nerd Buddy

berd-buddy.jpg

When there's computer difficulties at home, sometimes there's simply no replacement for an actual human skilled in the ways of kicking the crap out of your computer until it works again. Big box retailer Best Buy created its Geek Squad, a cadre of computer techs that travel to people's homes in a customized VW Beetle. Others have followed suit. Now, Dell, without physical retail locations or a human geek squad to assist its customers in need of unsnarling nasty computer bugs, has launched Nerd Buddy. Well, they've actually launched DellConnect by humorously illustrating why it's really not so convenient to have a geek-like Nerd Buddy follow you around all the time to make sure your computer isn't causing you to use it as a projectile out of frustration.

Aside from the fact Best Buy's Geek Squad and other similar services are nothing like the Nerd Buddy Dell so joyously ribs, the computer maker explains its virtual tech support solution, DellConnect is better than having a human geek follow you around. It's all presented in one of those goofy, docu-style videos complete with fake scientists in white lab coats.

Anna Wins 'Punk Marketing' Stripper Preference Poll

anna_wins.jpg

Yesterday, we asked you to take a look at a YouTube campaign for the marketing book Punk Marketing and tell us which of the two models, who strip while reading excerpts from the book, you though was hotter. Perhaps because Cleo did three videos to Anna's one, Cleo suffered the burden of burnout. I mean, how many time can you watch the same woman strip? Oh wait, that's a stupid question. In any event, newcomer Anna trumped Cleo with a resounding 75 percent of the vote. What was it? The blond hair? The girlie jean skirt? Do tell.
