So, yea. Transformers 2 is here and so are all kinds of "robot sightings" across the globe. Yea, we know. Yawn. But they are The Real Effing Deal and they are Giant Effing Robots! And besides, we like Amy.

Unexpected Biological Changes Make Zack a Less Dull Boy

tampax-arg

"V-Day" kicks off a new online video effort by Tampax that follows the story of Zack Johnson, a guy who woke up one morning to find he has a gaping vagina where his second head should be.

Don't know how it'll all pan out, but it promises to be occasionally funny in a banal teen angst kind of way. Follow the progression at Zack16.com, a site reminiscent of a teenage boy's notebook, complete with videos, a blog, Polaroid-styled images and a Twitter feed.

The tweets are kind of funny and appear to be getting progressively more emo. Apparently he's already had a period and now feels every guy should experience one.

Hear, hear. Although to be frank, marvelous breakthroughs in birth control make it so even real women don't have to endure random visits from Aunt Flo anymore.

Work by Leo Burnett/Chicago.

Yes, Stella Even PILLAGES Prettily.

stella-artois-legere.jpg

The cool thing about Stella Artois is that it maintains a semblance of flair without ever forgetting it's still just a beer.

"Pirate Paper Boat" takes place somewhere French Riviera-like. A woman fails in her attempts to flag down a waiter for a Stella Artois Legere; an entirely-too-suave dude, separated from her by the breadth of a fountain, witnesses her distress and sends her his Stella in a paper boat.

It'd be a charming little piece if the ad stopped there. But it doesn't. They call it "Pirate Paper Boat" for a reason!*

Ultimo-Clad Breasts No Match For Flesh Quaking Roller Coaster

ultimo_roller_coaster.jpg

Some bra marketers, such as Wonderbra, love to tout the fact they help a woman look bigger than she really is. Others, such as Ultimo, are more practical and love to tout their product's ability to control what they've already got. Even in the most extreme circumstances like, oh, on several roller coasters at Allton Towers Resort.

Host Holly thanks us for joining her and a bevy of lingerie-clad ladies who illustrate how Ultimo is all about allowing women to enjoy "thrills without spills."

Ladies, do not attempt while wearing a Wonderbra. You will get hurt.

Hey, SMB. Don't Get a Mascot; Hire an Agency!

mop-monkey.jpg

To drum up some biz-nass in its home state Kansas, the Russell Agency cobbled together this low-budget spot called "Bob's Mops." In it, a desperate business owner dons a saucy gorilla suit and dances on the street for would-be mop clients, ultimately scaring most innocent bystanders away.

We like gorillas that dance; more importantly, we like agencies that are trying to reach out to their communities, particularly small businesses, which need all the creative help they can get. Ya just don't see enough of that.

Come On, Not Everyone's Cut Out to Work in Model Massage.

model-massage-therapist.jpg

Instead of going down the office space ennui route and depicting depressed people with depressing jobs, Brazil-based Emprego Certo ("Dream Job") showcases a guy with a truly enviable metier -- but who can't stop bitching about it.

The "Massage Therapist for Models" complains about the long hours, the malcontents, his aching muscles and the lack of holidays. One day, he vows, "I'll quit this nightmare."

Tagline follows: "More than 140,000 job positions. One of them will make you happy."

Cute. According to the PR folk, the video hit over 1.7 million online views and was spread generously from inbox to inbox. Work by BorghiErh/Lowe films.

Van-Tastic Seeks Freeloaders for Ultimate Aussie Roadtrip

van-tastic.jpg

"We're looking for seven pairs of travellers, one for each of Australia's stunning states, to become Van-Tastic Adventurers."

Winning pairs will be flown from anywhere in the world to Australia, where they'll be given a "karmic campervan" that looks a lot like the Plaid Nation tourbus, actually. They'll also get to digicams and laptops for six weeks, $1000 worth of gas, free access to the area's top attractions and a list of places to go.

But that's not all! The best travel documentary produced by one of the seven couples gets $10,000 and two Virgin Blue domestic flights.

I Broker Mildly Complex Summer Promotions; What's YOUR Superpower?

radisson-fridays-freedays.jpg

So the Radisson is running this summer-long promotion called "FRIDAY IS FREEDAY," which is about as straightforward as winning FREE! timeshare. If you book at participating Radissons between May 15th and September 15th, you can score a free Friday, provided you stay two or more consecutive nights, including a Thursday or Saturday.

And as an added bonus, you also get free internet (ALL days!) and a buy one, get one free coupon for TGI Friday's.

To promote this truly cockles-warming offer, the Radisson is disseminating a web series about a little boy who's unwillingly taken on vacation by his mediocre dad and ditzy mom. He's rescued from total ennui by a Radisson employee with a heart of gold, who outfits him in free hotel gear and turns him into a FREEDAYS FRIDAYS! superhero.

Toddler Does a Dance! And This is Why You Should Buy Designer Water.

evian-baby.jpg

Remember the Ally McBeal days when the whole dancing baby gimmick was fresh and new, then companies like Etrade and Evian decided to leverage that same creepy phenomenon to sell things?

Yeah, us too. Anyway, Evian sent us its latest baby video, "Baby Moonwalk," which features a cute toddler that suddenly, randomly moonwalks. Consider this the fine water bottler's contribution to YouTube's amateur vid bargain bin.

Can't get enough involuntary baby manipulation? Watch for the Evian Live Young baby film -- coming to a monitor near you!
