No, not an iPad — a menstrual pad. We were reading that article the other day about the big biz of vaginal products — how marketing and advertising industries aren’t shying away from female genitalia anymore, now that their target market has a million and one shameless blogs about the comings and goings of their [...]

As the Dominique Strauss-Kahn case spirals downward into an all-too-familiar he-said-she-said situation — with blame-the-victim rumors thrown in, just for kicks — we are reminded of a product we were unfortunate enough to stumble across the other day. Sold by the Rude Dude Boxers company, our Dubious Product of the Decade is a pair of [...]

New Season of Craigslist TV

Monday, October 18, 2010

0 Comments

A few weeks ago, Craigslist TV (on YouTube) launched their second season of mini-documentaries based on real Craigslist ads. (Watch the trailer for the series here.) If you think reading the ads is great entertainment for inducing second-hand embarrassment, try watching them. Our favorite, of course, is still the first one from the first season, [...]

The Tumblr blog Bitter Buffalo said it best: “What‚Äôs this? An anti-rape campaign that focuses on preventing rape instead of preventing women leaving the house? Holy crap it‚Äôs Christmas.” Read the full post on SUNfiltered

He captured our hearts this past winter with his first breakthrough ad that had him going from shower to ship to white steed all in one take. At the end of June, he was back with another ingeniously absurd one-shot commercial, an awesome upping of the stakes of the first (log rolling? check! jacuzzi busting? [...]

The German ad agency Butter recently released a series of award-winning print ads — “Pin-Up Calendar 2010″ — for Eizo, a medical supply company which apparently specializes in medical imaging. While it effectively shows the quality of their radiographs, it also entertainingly pokes fun at the whole porn genre: You can see everything! Check out [...]

Best Condom Tagline Ever

We just saw this awesome condom TV commercial from Trojan the other day. We’re not necessarily endorsing the product, just the ad. First of all, the tagline “You can’t wait to get it on”? Genius.

At first we were tickled by these quirky ads for India’s Adam Extra Long Condoms by the world’s third largest ad agency Publicis. The illustrations are cool, and they obviously have a sense of humor. But take a look at the details, and things get downright sinister. (You can check out the larger images at [...]

Thursday, March 25, 2010

1 Comment

We saw this fantastic ad for a new line of period products called U from Kotex while we were watching American Idol the other day. (We can admit this viewing habit without shame because in the same week we watched the 13-and-a-half-hour, black-and-white German film “White Ribbon,” which pretty much balances things out.) Anyway, the [...]
