A1 Steak Sauce Changes Name to A1 Sauce With Awesome Facebook Video


Here's some fantastic work from CP+B for A.1. Steak Sauce which is changing its name to, simply, A.1. Sauce. To make the move, the agency created a humorous video during which A.1., who is "in a relationship" with Steak decides to accept friend requests from others -- such as salmon, green beans, lobster, bacon and many more -- which ends up making things "complicated" for A.1.

Is This Non-Sensical Unilever Campaign Selling Ice Cream Or A News Channel?


The press release for this campaign promoting South African news channel WWW News describes the efforts three videos as yawn-worthy. We'd agree. But we'd go a step further and call the entire campaign yawn-worthy.

Not only yawn-worthy but confusing. Why? Because it's not even for a news channel. It's for Unilever's Wall's Ice Cream.

Even A Disrobing Table-Dancing Hottie Can't Distract This Guy From His Studies


In this Dutch ad for Vifit, a health drink that apparently helps keep you focused, a college girl does her best to distract a guy from his studies. But since he's drinking the magical Vifit, even a hot girl who strips down to her underwear and does a dance routine on the table right in front of him can't sway this guy from concentrating on his studies. Via.

We haven't seen ad ad this blatantly sexual in a very long time. Thank you, Vifit.

Fallon Brings Back the Fanny Pack in Humorous Glue Ad


No! No! No! Please no!

High up on the list of fashion disasters is the dreaded fanny pack. It rose to infamy in the late 1980s and early-to-mid 1990s. And, for the most part, you don't see them anymore.

If Fallon Minneapolis has its way, the fanny pack is going to be reborn. At least on YouTube. In a commercial for Henkel's Locite glue. Hopefully, it'll be like trying to make Fetch happen. The fanny pack. Not the campaign. We wish the best for the campaign, Just not the fanny pack. Please, not the fanny pack.
