Beyonce seems to have a ripe new business plan that she’s trying out, which is hiding her new tracks in her own commercials like gems in troll bellies. That’s a normal simile that normal people use, right? Cool. More
Leave it to Amy Poehler to make me start liking celebrity endorsements. More
While at first glance Courtney Stodden’s new commercial may look like a shameless publicity stunt for FreeCreditReport.com, it’s actually offering us a complex message about the way we look at our dwindling domestic fishing industry, our neverending need to catch on to the next biggest thing and most interestingly, our views on mermaid-human sex.
Remember when Brenda Walsh left Beverly Hills to study acting in London? It looks like she finally scored an ad campaign! Shannon Doherty the new face of EducationConnection.com, an online service for learnin’ and schoolin’. In the video, Shannon dresses up as a businesswoman, a scientist, a chef, a nurse, and, inexplicably, a flapper — all while touting the virtues of Education Connection. More
Sorry about this in advance, but we can’t resist posting this ad from a British alternative tampon brand called Mooncup. Think of as many euphemisms for “vagina” as you can. We guarantee each and every one of them is featured in this video. “Mini haha”? Yep, that’s there too. Terrific! More
We suppose we can’t expect the promotion of a women’s perfume that smells like barbeque to be particularly subtle, but this has to be the single most amazingly obtuse thing we’ve ever seen. Girls like Sex and the City and feelings! Boys like sports and ribs! They’ll never be compatible unless they’re tricked into liking one another by a little eau de pork rind. More
Here’s the narrative of Justin Bieber‘s perfume commercial: Girl spritzes her neck with “Someday” and Justin suddenly appears behind her. He sniffs her and then she’s Raptured up into Heaven. And again: the girl sprays the other side of her neck and once more, Bieber appears to send her soul skywards.
We don’t know what to make of this French ginger ale commercial starring Uma Thurman except to say that a bottle of Schweppes is a far cry from a six-dollar milkshake. Who’s with me? More
If you’re anything like me, you only take dinners alone one way: frozen. And when it comes to learning how to cook for myself, well I never got farther than the start button on my microwave. But luckily I found my very own personal chef years ago. My first choice for the job was a stay-at-home hunk who always put extra cheese on my daily personal pizza, but Lean Cuisine fit the bill just fine. Cheap, easy and loaded with sodium – beat that, dream man. So color me heartbroken when I heard Lean Cuisine was recalling 10,000 Spaghetti Meatball entrée dinners due to possible hard, red plastic found in the food. Hey, I’ve swallowed worse in my day – amirightladies? More
Oh man, we have a new favorite commercial to replace the “I’ve fallen and I can’t get up” Life Call ad we thought was the funniest thing in the world when we were five. And this one also involves old people! Two cute elderly men reenact the Brad Pitt/Ed Norton ear-punching scene from Fight Club in this BLU-RAY ad. The reimagining supposedly backs up the tagline “Don’t mess with an original,” though we’d honestly rather watch two hours of David Fincher‘s attempts to work with geriatrics than the actual film. Spirit animal = sloth! More
Okay — we’ve seen a lot of crazy Asian commercials in our time, but this Korean ad takes the cake. Two fat men parade about with elaborate faces painted on their bellies before going nuts on a rollercoaster. And what’s this piece of advertising glory actually selling? Well, we’re not entirely sure. (via Warming Glow) More
Remember that fake iPhone commercial with Jane Lynch that was circulating a little while back? Now her former Party Down co-star Adam Scott is starring in a similar parody about the new iPhone 4, which makes us believe that all … More
Jane Lynch Spoofs iPhone Commercial – Dude, where does Jane Lynch find the time? “Yeah I just got married and am getting ready for Glee‘s finale, but sure I will star in your Internet parody video.” This is why she is the best. (via Vulture)
