I love a good ad campaign and this new commercial from Le Slip Francais definitely falls into that category.
Shot and edited in a way to resemble a commercial from the ’50s or ’60s, the commercial features a woman who places two eggs on one side of the table, and two on the other. Hmm, I wonder what these are supposed to represent? She then shows us two different pairs of men’s underwear. The first is your basic, unflattering “not so tighty” whitey. The other is a sexy and more flattering pair of Le Slip Francais. She lays each of the undies of the two pairs of eggs. As you can see in the photo above, there’s also a hammer on the table…
I don’t want to spoil what happens next, so you’ll have to watch the commercial below to find out what happens. The ad agency responsible is BETC Paris. Enjoy!
Earlier this month, Measure B was passed thanks to L.A. voters and it requires that all porn actors wear condoms. Needless to say, it’s been a controversial topic from both sides of the fence… and continues to be.
In a new Funny Or Die video, Steven Hirsch (the founder and co-chairman of the adult entertainment company Vivid Entertainment) explains how they have taken things one step further by consulting top safety experts. Examples include prevention methods for carpal tunnel syndrome when giving HJs, wearing a face shield to avoid any bodily fluids in the eye, wearing a helmet while on a sling, and more safety precautions. Watch the video below.
Whatya’ get when you put together the tallest mountain in Africa, a handful of drag queens, and some seemingly insane paragliders? Well, you may or may not be in Vancouver this Sunday but there’s a way to help out some great charities, or just read about a pretty breathtaking worldwide adventure.
Heels for Kilimanjaro is going to be a fun drag show with tons of local talent, including local bartender Guy Herrington (or that night, Lady Guy-Guy). This will all be raising proceeds towards the event Wings of Kilimanjaro, happening February 5th, 2013, a record breaking expedition in Africa. A group of over 1000 people, including guides and crew, will take 200 paragliders to the top of the mountain, in a once in a lifetime opportunity to paraglide off. And said local Guy Herrington will be one of them!
On January 27th 2013, adventurers from all over the globe will assemble at the foot of Mt Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. The team, the largest ever group to attempt the world’s tallest free standing mountain, aim to ascend the 19,340 foot high and fly from the summit. The climb and paraglide mission, something that is usually banned by the Tanzanian Government, will raise over US$1 million for 3 charities making a difference on the ground in Eastern Africa; Plant With Purpose, WorldServe International and One Difference.
That’s right, the Tanzanian government is lifting the ban for just one day for these heroic people. And with so much to be raised for great organizations, and a lot of adventure to be had, I suggest you help make these people’s dreams come true.
This year, Americans are embarking on the earliest Black Friday ever with Walmart and a bunch of other retailers opening their doors at 8:OOpm on Thanksgiving Day (Thursday, November 22) as opposed to 4am or 5am in past years, and last year creeping to midnight for the first time.
In this new Funny or Die video, former Desperate Housewives star Teri Hatcher plays Rebecca Tyler, a wife and mother serving Thanksgiving dinner while she prepares her family for the earliest Black Friday in the history of anything ever. Her husband Nate, played by Tom Arnold, expresses that he thinks she’s overreacting but since he’s never participated in a Black Friday, she puts him in his place and asks him, “So you don’t know what it is like to sit in the electronics department of a Walmart, holding a woman so badly beaten and bruised that she is begging you to break her neck?” He responds, “Um, that never happened.” She then says, “Well it could and I’m prepared for it.” Her daughter asks if mommy will go to jail, but Rebecca informs her that all laws are suspended on Black Friday.
Watch the video below. Are any of you participating in Black Friday and if so are you attending on Thanksgiving Day, or Black Friday proper?
The sexy and funny Dave Franco (who is one of the leads in the Now You See Me movie trailer that just came out) plays a game of “Would You Rather” with Talia Tabin (Parks and Recreation) in a hilarious new Funny or Die video.
The two childhood friends find themselves in increasingly awkward and funny situations when their game of “Would You Rather” takes an unexpected twist: the choices they make start coming true. For the first time ever, they can make anything come true, just by offering it as an option in the game. Will they use their power to make their fantasies become reality, or will the temptation to mess with each other be too much to resist? Christopher Mintz-Plasse (Superbad) and Dave’s mother, Betsy Franco co-star as well.
This isn’t the first game Dave Franco has played for Funny or Die. He has also done a couple of “You’re So Hot” videos with Mintz-Plasse that are definitely worth watching if you haven’t. First, check out the new “Would You Rather” below to see what outrageous scenarios become reality.
This is actually pretty funny. With the world becoming more and more obsessed with social media as part of their daily life, this new Funny or Die video demonstrates that even secret agents are not immune to this dangerous addiction.
In the faux movie trailer, Kellan Lutz plays the world’s deadliest secret agent, but he has one fatal flaw: A dangerous addiction to social media. His commanding officer urges him, “Dammit Hashtag, this mission is top secret! Stop posting on Instagram!” Hashtag responds, “It’s okay, I recovered the nuclear codes.” The commanding officer responds, “I know, I saw your Tumblr post!” That’s not the only social media he uses. In the trailer he live tweets his car chases, follows his suspects on Pinterest, tags villains he’s about to kill on Facebook, and even when he finds himself in danger, he checks into the underground torture chamber he’s being held at on Foursquare.
The icing on the cake is when you find out what the motive is for the main villain in this fake movie is and who his character is. Enjoy!
A series of videos where a little boy lip-dubs his dad’s coworker’s voice is in the process of going viral on YouTube. A video editor named Benjamin Barak asked a coworker to record a few funny skits that he took the audio from and dubbed over footage of his son lip-dubbing the dialogue. His son’s actual name is Maximus Thor and the end result of this project is hilarious.
There are four videos so far that include: Happy Meal, Gym, Star Wars, and Nazi Gold. Here’s an example of what to expect, from some of what is lip-dubbed in Happy Meal: “So, Banjo was driving me over to a big play date at Samantha’s house, and I’m like ‘Banjo, pull into Mickey-D’s, I wanna grub up before I see my lady.‘ Pull in. Walk our asses up to the counter, and I’m like, ‘Gimme the chicken nuggets. Happy Meal’…” With what happens next, the boy is not impressed with the woman at the counter. Wanna know what happened next?
Find out why these videos are going viral by checking them out for yourself below.
A new gay magazine about men who date men based out of Australia is launching this January called Hello Mr. and it has been described as follows: “It’s the overdue response to the unending clichés that surround current gay lifestyle publications. Rather than pushing agendas or perfecting appearances, it’s about relevant material for a misrepresented generation with an evolved range of interests. A chronicle of everyday life, and the narratives which define it.”
The magazine will be published twice a year (starting in January), and each issue will contain written and visual contributions from people all around the globe. The concept description combined with their promotional images and video really caught my attention. This Kickstarter Project, headed by a guy named Ryan Fitzgibbon will only be funded if they reach their goal of $20,000 by November 24. So far, they are about halfway there. I just pledged this morning and am told that I can expect to receive my first issue in February 2013 (they do ship worldwide). I’m not sure what to expect, but there’s no harm in checking it out! I’ve seen some criticize the idea completely already, but I personally feel that that is just a symptom of when gays are harder on each other. Sometimes we are our own worst enemies and don’t support each other. In my opinion, there’s plenty of room in the market for another gay magazine that ventures to take a different angle on connecting with gay readers. Sure it may not end up being everyone‘s cup of tea, but then again, what is?
Check out their intriguing promo pictures and video below. I’ve also included the link to their Kickstarter page below as well, should you be interested in more information and/or supporting the project.
