AdPunch has a few photos of Jessica Simpson in the new ad campaign for her line of footwear and handbags. We'll agree with AdPunch here and say she does look pretty good in these ads.
We have no idea how long this has been around but Adrants reader Steve Poland tells us he saw a text ad on Google which read, "Help save the crab. Gil the MySpace crab lost his job. Sign the petition to get him back." The ad linked to SavetheCrab, a site that pleads for people to sign a petition so Gil can get his job back after having been fired for apparently saying "I pinch" too many times in Honda Element commercial which can. of course, be viewed on the accompanying MySpace page. Eesh.

Stranger things have happened.

Instead of display of anger and the slashing tires in this promotion for the Gangs of London game, we get a literal version of what the English like to says when they're mad, "piss off." SO that's it. Watch it. That's all there is to it. The video was created by Maverick Media.
This spot for Five Alive, a drink we haven't seen on the shelves in years, is just goofy enough to merit mention.

From our Israeli friends Keta Keta who brought us Make Love, Not Terror; Make Love, Not War; Holy Virals (Hetro and Gay) and more (all of which you can view on their site), comes this video promoting the word's first Jewish social network., Koolanoo. In the video, there's the usual ogling men do when a woman drops her robe and struts alongside a pool in a bikini but when one guy realizes she's wearing the star of David as he is, he feels obliged to enage in some protective action.
