There's no reason the debate over global warming has to center on films created by former vice presidents when it can include guys with six packs and girls with impossibly hot bodies. That's the direction LAVA Communications' Steve Hirst took with a new Australia-based campiagn he's placed on the social campaign site GoShout.
The campaign's video depicts winter in the year 2079. While one might expect to see bleak, snow covered imagery, we, instead, are presented with what turns out to be a pool party complete with bikinied booty and bare chested six packs. Because, ya know, global warming has eliminated winter.
Maybe because the recent Lynx (Axe) Chocolate campaign needed a bit of a kick in the ass, British hottie Keeley Hazell was snagged for a photo shoot with the chocolate flavored dudes themselves.
Wearing a chocolate colored bikini, Keeley likely gave passersby an uplifting experience as they watched her cavort with the chocolate dudes on the lawn in front of London Bridge. My God that girl is hot. See more here.

With Super Bowl XLII behind us, we can now turn our attention to more pressing matters in the advertising business: the use of female cleavage and breast-obsessed men to sell stuff. Yea, yea, yea, who wants to read another story about some stupid ad that uses boobs to sell stuff? Oh, you do? OK, let's continue then.
Here's a creepy twist on the American Psycho premise.
You're in the Chinese laundry. Some hotshot white executive walks in and starts heckling the pitiable Asian owner in front of his family. He makes the nasty requisite Pokemon and Hello Kitty jokes, does the grating "oriental" accent. Things are clearly spiraling out of control.
Suddenly, a black dude in the background takes a call on his Jawbone Bluetooth headset. And in a noise-canceling orchestration Bose would be proud of, the world beyond his convo is efficiently muted.
Fearless follower of all things American Apparel, Copyranter brings us American Apparel's apparent video debut with its own channel on YouTube. Now, aside from all those racy images over which everyone obsesses, we can all now obsess over booty in motion thanks to impossibly hot American Apparel model Kristen who tantalizingly wags her ass in our face while wearing polka dot panties. WTF? Is this supposed to sell clothes or become the next masturbatory fixation for teenage boys?
Slapping down the UK's Advertising Standards Authority which didn't like a recent ad Ryanair ran in three newspaper which featured an image of a model in a school girl outfit with the copy, "Hottest. back to School Fares," Ryanair head of communications Peter Sherrard said, "This isn't advertising regulation, it is simply censorship. This bunch of unelected self-appointed dimwits are clearly incapable of fairly and impartially ruling on advertising."
Sherrard went on to site the common practice of British newspapers which feature topless women within their pages on a regular basis and stated the airline would not withdraw the ad as requested by the ASA which received 13 complaints.
Playboy has collected a treasure trove of sexy commercial and ranked the top 21 in it's February 2008 issue. The 21 finalists are ranked in the printed magazine but online they are still open for voting. Believe it or not, we don't read Playboy but AdFreak's Tim Nudd does and he shares some of the rankings.
So here's an intriguing campaign for you transparency lovers. Strawberry Frog crafted a website for Brazilian lingerie company Universo Intimo, filled it with images of impossibly hot models...then added a blog on which a woman writes about how young girls can be demoralizing and create impossible to achieve expectations.Um, nice but huh?
So when did it become a rule that it's OK (or not R rated at least) to show a woman's breasts as long as the nipple area is covered? Apparently everyone loves the rule because there's thousands of videos on YouTube (which don't like nudity) and Flickr (which can't get enough nudity) with women barring their entire upper body except for that apparently R rated area known as the nipple and the areolae.
Now it seems, at least in Mexico, it's OK to show women in ads minus nipples and areolae as illustrated by this Mia seamless lingerie ad Copyranter so kindly shares with us. Sadly, so as not to offend the faint at heart, we've cropped the thumbnail accompanying this piece. If you can to see some really strange looking n ipple-less breasts, click here for the debatably NSFW image.
