France Finally Shocked By Something: Anti-Smoking Ad

Monday, March 1, 2010


The slogan for the above anti-smoking ad currently running in France reads “Smoking means being a slave to tobacco.” Despite promoting a universally recognized good cause — getting kids to stop smoking — the ad has managed to piss off pretty much everyone. And this is in France, where the words “sex” and “scandal” (or, [...]

The Man Your Man Could Smell Like

Thursday, February 25, 2010


This new Old Spice ad is genius. Check out this Twit interview with the creators of the ad for the play-by-play of how they did it.¬† The commercial pokes fun at both men and women (refreshing!), which means it appeals to both men and women and thus doubles Old Spice’s potential buying market. Since being [...]

Our reader IC brought our attention to Puma’s genius ad campaign, The Puma Hardchorus, with the tag line “They want to be in your arms. You want to be in the stands. What do you do when Valentine’s Day falls on game day?” The site allows hardcore soccer fans to dedicate and send a video [...]

The Super Bowl Ad Superlatives (in the Love and Sex Category)

Monday, February 8, 2010


BEST OVERALL: Dove Men+Care’s “The Journey to Comfort” At last, a commercial that celebrates manhood without being sexist, stupid or beer-related! It’s basically a mini-movie crammed into 45-seconds (seriously, try counting the number of scenes they had to shoot) that follows one Everyman’s life from birth to adulthood by highlighting the big moments as well [...]

Pro-Choice Responses to the Tim Tebow Super Bowl Ad

Friday, February 5, 2010


To kick off your Superbowl weekend, check out these 3 bits that you won’t (but should!) see during the game this Sunday — all are in response to the anti-choice, anti-equality, anti-gay Christian group Focus on the Family’s 2.5-million-dollar spot (that we mentioned the other day) featuring football star Tim Tebow and his mom talking [...]

The Superbowl Ad You WON’T See This Weekend

Monday, February 1, 2010


We used to look forward to Superbowl Sunday for the ads (that, and the excuse to over-indulge in junk food). But it looks like CBS is determined to ruin the one sports-related joy in our lives. First of all they went and accepted an¬†anti-choice ad from conservative Christian group¬†Focus on the Family — apparently CBS [...]

Pine-Sol Ad Jumps On Housework-Improves-Sex Bandwagon

Friday, November 20, 2009


photo from Porn for Women Finally! An ad for a cleaning product that doesn’t feature a woman going into an orgasmic paroxysm over a new mop. Only on Madison Avenue does doing the chores turn a woman on. Sure, Pine-Sol may have shamelessly ripped off the Porn for Women books with their new ad, but [...]

SpatSolver, the Ultimate Argument Resolution Device

Thursday, November 5, 2009


Infomercial parodies are a fine art that only a few have mastered. But we think YourTango has just joined the ranks of elite spoofers with their “SpatSolver.” We guarantee you’ll be wishing this thing was real in seconds! Yeah, the commercial goes on a little too long, and the free “Apologizer” is pretty unfunny, but [...]

Monday, October 5, 2009


photo by EMandLO.com Sometimes what happens in Vegas simply can’t stay in Vegas. While driving through Sin City this past weekend, Lo saw the crazy-ass billboard above — so crazy-ass that she had to pull the car over and take a picture.¬†The ad is for a night club — not a BDSM club, or the [...]

Korean Air Ad Lays It On Thick

Friday, September 18, 2009


This ad from Korean Air called “The Color of Perfection” has been around for a while, but it’s making the rounds again on the some of the news networks (just accidentally saw it during a commercial break of¬†the awesome “Rachel Maddow Show” after an amateur forwarding maneuver on TiVo). Some have referred to it as [...]
