Big Nipples Not Just For Sexy Women Anymore

Like My Nippples?

There's always been something tantalizing about nipples poking through the fabric of a tight shirt on a hot chic. But big nipples on a guy is another thing altogether. Vigorsol Air Chewing Gum has launched a new commercial that somehow wants us to believe eating their gum is so exciting (read arousing) that it makes your nipples huge. On a woman, maybe. On a guy, no way. Of course, the spot couldn't air if they used a female in this spot.

Other new ads in this week's Ad Age TV Spots of the Week give us Martha Stewart in a KMart spot as if we are supposed to forget she is a criminal, hot butt shots of a surfer for Pioneer's new plasma TV's, a spot for Lipitor explaining even healthy people need to take pills, Abyss-like special effects imitate heat in a heating oil industry spot, a dude splats on the windshield of an unsuspecting family for PlayStation 2 and Standard Federal Bank launches a very standard ad for their mortgaging services.
