Adify Media Helps Ad Buyers Reach Freaks


Adify Media, an advertising network that places ads on niche sites, wants us to know just how niche some people can be. With two new videos that introduce us to Cheryl, a fan of "accidental toast portraiture, and Wally, a three-time world champion cat shaver, Adify Media wants online ad buyers to know they hold the keys to the World Wide Weirdo Web.

Which is a very good thing because God knows the web is chock full of lunatics with freakishly strange behaviors in search of products to support those freakishly strange behaviors.

Holy Bulging Cleavage! Who Knew Bowling Could Be So Hot?


Taking the breasts as bowling balls metaphor to, well, the bowling alley, Jonathan Leder, who earlier showed us the orgasmic effects of playing squash, now shares with us the tantalizing excitement of bowling. Model Lauren Young, whose more than ample breasts are barely contained in a French cut bra, prances up and down the alley as Leder's lens follows the every gyration of her mountainous flesh within.

Lingerie Brand Provides Pedestrians Hole to Glory


Elle McPherson did it to sell her lingerie. Now Marissa Lingerie is doing it. Doing what, you ask? Holes. Yes, holes. No, not holes in their underwear...though given the see-through nature of most lingerie, holes do play a role in lingerie. Rather we're talking about a different kind of hole here.

While McPherson offered up a keyhole to pseudo masturbation, Marissa created hole. Yes. A hole through which passersby can peer and watch lingerie-clad construction workers do their thing. And many a passerby took the time to gander at the hotness within.

College Students Strip For 'Epic Sexy Charitable' Axe Undie Run


Holy Hot Humanity! Hot college students across the nation will, once again, strip off their clothing and donate it to charity in a ten school competition that promises to, much less hot than it's portrayed in this promotional video.

No, women won't be running around campuses with thongs on. No, women won't be tearing off their shirts to display their bras. No, guys won't be running around in their boxers. No, a girl with "Kelly" written across her underwear won't be riding around on a chariot.

More likely, what we will see are fully dressed college students with kitchen trash bags full of extra clothing walking slowly across campus to place them in Axe drop boxes.

Yea, we know. Ads are always more exciting than the reality they depict.

Netherlands Schooled in Art of Assisting in Violent Situations


Apparently, there's a lot of violence against public service Employees in the Netherlands. So much so, they needed an ad campaign to call attention to it and to illustrate the inactivity of onlookers in violent situations.

Created by Amsterdam-based N=5, an interactive billboard was created that showed a green screen film scene of violence which was then coupled with live shots of the people looking at the billboard. The net results out passersby in the middle of a violent situation. Once the scene played out on the billboard, four tips where then provided to educate onlookers how to assist public service employees if they witness a violent situation.

Here's a video showing how it was created and how it was received.
