I recently came across MIROSLAV Underwear‘s brilliant campaign that revolves around their slogan, “Best Appreciated Up Close” and I just had to share them with you.
Thus far, they have four print ads (including the one above), as well as three commercials that all show people having to get right up to the underwear (and I mean RIGHT UP) in order to truly appreciate it. They are so funny. The three short commericals are titled “Hotel,” “Walker,” and “Airbag” and they are all worth watching. I have not doubt they’ll be receiving some sort of marketing award for this campaign.
The Australian underwear line was designed by Miro Kubicek and uses Japanese cotton which ensures that there is no excess heat. I definitely want to try a pair myself! Until then, I’ll likely watch and LOL again at these commercials a few more times. Enjoy!
Recently, Redd wrote about the fact that Jean Paul Gaultier has become the new creative director for Diet Coke. Well, the famed designer has wasted no time having just revealed three new Diet Coke bottles in a new ad and commercial.
One of the bottles draws inspiration from Madonna’s iconic infamous cone bra outfit from back in 1990 which he designed. The other has black & white stripes, likely inspired by Jean Paul Gaultier’s own look. The third is another edgy outfit but I’m not certain what it’s inspired by. The bottles and ad will only available in Europe.
Check out the picture of the bottles below, as well as the TV spot and behind the scenes look at the shoot. Bottoms up!
With an X Factor deal potentially close to being finalized, it’s the perfect time for Twister Dance to have Britney Spears star in their commercial. Yesterday, Spears tweeted, “Couldn’t be happier with the Twister Dance video shoot! It’s gonna be so hot…” And it looks that way for sure… In the still images that have been released thus far, Spears looks freaking incredible. I feel like she keeps getting better with age!
The Hasbro game prompts users to place their feet on LED colored spots that move around to the beat of the music. Recommended for one or two players, ages 8 and up. The game hits the shelves in Fall 2012 with a retail price of $34.99. The game will include a new remix of “Til The World Ends.”
“Dancing has been such an important part of my life since I was a little girl,” Spears said in a press release. “As soon as I saw the new Twister Dance game, I knew I wanted to be involved. I think kids will love rocking the spots and dancing to the music as much as my boys and I do. It’s a lot of fun!” Check out the first images from the commercial below.
The other day Nike unveiled it’s big budget commercial featuring Rafael Nadal and Cristiano Ronaldo battling it out for athletic supremacy. Not knocking that creative, but I much prefer this Nike ad instead. Why? Simple. It’s absolutely adorable and the lyrics to the song are beyond cute.
The premise of the commercial has a long-distance couple living on opposite coasts. In an effort to see each other, the two embark on a cross-country run to meet halfway in the Midwest. As the ad says, love makes people do crazy things like run across the country.
What starts off as a romantic idea, quickly becomes quite arduous for one half of the couple. As one is sprinting across the US declaring her love, the other is panting singing he’s about to collapse. Here’s an example of the lyric exchange between the two.
Girl: I love you. There I said it.
Boy: I think I’m gonna need a medic.
Girl: You filled the hall with flower petals.
Boy: Why does my mouth taste like metal?
Girl: Baby I might die without you.
Boy: Baby, I might die.
The clip was directed by renowned commercial director Ringan Ledwidge and shot in three cities and five states over the course of 11 days. Watch the clip below to see if the couple eventually meets up.
As a side note, a new Burger King commercial has come out that features the nine-time Grammy winnwer singing about Crispy Chicken Wraps. She sings it to the beat of her own song, “Don’t Mind,” from her latest album “My Life II…The Journey Continues.”
When asked what’s in the new wraps, Blige sings, “Crispy chicken, fresh lettuce, three cheeses, ranch dressing, wrapped up in a tasty flour tortilla.” A lot of people are surprised to see her peddling chicken, especially since some people believe that it feeds into a stereotype. That being said, Salma Hayek, David Beckham and Jay Leno are also featured in new Burger King commercials, and Sofia Vergara and Steven Tyler are also expected to each do one as well. Check out Blige’s commercial below.
Two of the world’s biggest athletes go head-to-head in a battle of explosive speed. On the tennis court, Rafael Nadal‘s supremacy is almost unrivalled. However, against Cristiano Ronaldo and the new Mercurial Vapor VIII soccer cleats/boots, he faces a challenge like never before.
In the commercial below, Ronaldo is on court with Nadal, rallying with him but using his feet & body as he would in a soccer game as opposed to using a racket. Well, and using his Mercurial Vapor VIII shoes, which is the focus of the whole commercial.
Cristiano Ronaldo has always worn the Mercurial and he give his seal of approval on the latest version. “This boot is perfect for me. I can get an edge on defenders, knowing that the boot will give me the speed and traction I need without compromising support, control or, of course, style.” Check out the commercial below.
One of my favorite funny ladies, Anna Faris recently teamed up with The A-Team‘s legendary Mr. T for a hilarious infomercial for Old Navy. The two stars discuss the brand’s “Best Tees,” designed to fit your body in contrast to the unflattering box-like tees. No one likes those.
Faris goes on to share a personal story of when she used to suffer from wearing bad-fitting t-shirts. They then show a clip of a “Drama-Tee-Zation” of what she was like during that time. Let’s just say it isn’t Mr. T who gets all crazy and angry in this commercial. LOL.
Check out the over-the-top-cheese-ball infomercial below. You even get to learn how these t-shirts are made.
Sex sells and that’s what Liquid Plumr is counting on with their brand new commercial. Who knew unclogging drains could be so sexy? The company is promoting it’s new double action Liquid-Plumr Double Impact Snake + Gel System. Speaking of double action…
In the ad, a housewife fantasizes about two hot plumbers knocking on her door to assist her with her clogged “pipes”. You know were this is going, right? Side note, why is it in real life, plumbers never look like this. Admit it, you also secretly wish the repairman you just called turns out to be a hot tottie. Alas, they never are. Instead you get a lot of crack and not the good kind.
Starring in the clip is model Aaron O’Connell. I previously wrote about this stud when he was rumored to be AnnaLynne McCord’s new boyfriend, replacing Kellan Lutz. He’s definitely as cute as I remembered, if not cuter. He along with this scruffy hot bear titillate in this sexual innuendo-filled ad spot. Be sure to watch the entire clip and see O’Connell feeling up melons. Sexy.
