With the Super Bowl coming up next Sunday, a lot of companies have been preview their commercials ahead of time and setting all the buzz in motion. Toyota has revealed a couple new commercials for their new RAV4 that star Big Bang Theory beauty, Kaley Cuoco as a sassy, pretty in purple genie.
In one of the spots, she shows up at a family’s home and starts granting their wishes. As always, be careful what you wish for! In the second spot, she walks down the street with her chihuahua by her side with Skee-Lo’s “I Wish” playing in the background. She grants the wishes of people around her with the snap of a finger. When she gets into the RAV4, the guy in the passenger seat is “a rabbit in a hat with a bat,” which of course come from the lyrics of the song. Too funny.
Watch both funny commercials below.
Celebrating 30 years of Diet Coke, the soda company has unveiled it’s brand new sexy TV commercial starring Andrew Cooper as their new Diet Coke Man.
In the commercial, a group of ladies are in a park gabbing away, while one of the ladies notices a hot guy mowing the lawn. She seems to be the “horny” one and signals to her girlfriends to watch what she’s about to do. She decides to get the guy’s attention by rolling a can of soda over to him. Of course everything is in slow motion and sexy music is playing in the background. Given that the can was just rolled over, when he opens it, it litterally explodes all over him... I’m thinking that’s what the woman wants him to do in return… only not with Diet Coke. LOL.
As you can expect, he’s got to get that sticky shirt off of his body and it’s mission accomplished for the ladies. Watch the sexy new commercial below.
All you white powder-loving druggies, calm down. It’s NOT that type of coke, but Coca-Cola ;) Side note: Did you know that the beverage is sold everywhere in the world except two countries- Cuba and North Korea. Had no idea until I wrote this post. Learn something new every day.
We’re a week away from the big game and while some are looking forward to the battle between Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers, others are hyped about Beyonce’s halftime show and Destiny’s Child reunion. For this huge consumer, it’s all about those big budget commercials. I.CANT.WAIT!!!
The soft drink company recently unveiled a teaser for their Super Bowl spot airing next Sunday. Titled “Coke Chase,” the commercial features three groups- Cowboys, Showgirls, Badlanders- vying for what seems to be the only drink in the desert. Who will win? Well, that depends on you. Through a series of ads airing on Super Bowl Sunday, viewers can voice their preference through Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and other social media platforms or on www.cokechase.com.
Being a huge Priscilla: Queen of the Desert fan, I obviously cast my vote for the showgirls. Check out the commercial created by Wieden & Kennedy below. FYI: Dan Wieden, one of the founding owners of the agency coined the iconic “Just Do It” Nike tagline.
According to GayStarNews, the Thai Transgender Alliance have sent an open letter to address their concern about a “negative and stereotypical” Ikea commercial that was broadcast on Bankok’s sky train system from December 28 – January 13, as well as on YouTube. The ad is called “Luem Aeb,” which translates into “forget to deceive”.
Coincidentally, yesterday I wrote about the Ladyboys series that brings to the forefront the estimated 1% of the male Thai population that use hormone therapy and/or surgery to become women. In the commercial, a woman is so surprised by something that’s on sale that she ends up speaking in a male voice. The guy that is with her is totally shocked and caught off guard.
“The MTF transgender/transwomen character is openly mocked as being ‘deceitful’, the Transgender Open Alliance open letter to Ikea read. “The transgender content of the advertisement is negative and stereotypical in nature, perpetuating misunderstanding transgenderism as human sexuality for ‘deceitful and deviant lifestyle‘.” They are asking that Ikea release a public statement about the advertisement. Watch the ad below.
Back in 2010, I wrote about NFL hottie Eric Decker as one of our featured Sports Studs. The 25-year-old is a wide receiver for the Denver Broncos and has recently signed on as one of the faces of Proactiv and is featured in an infomercial.
Here’s what Proactiv says about Decker’s struggle with acne and how their products helped him: “Eric Decker, wide receiver for the Denver Broncos, struggled with acne until his teammate gave him Proactiv his freshman year of college. Proactiv helped him achieve and maintain clear skin, which boosted his confidence both on and off the field.” You have to wonder how much money Proactiv spends on celebrity endorsements like Vanessa Williams, Jessica Simpson, and Justin Bieber, among countless others.
Watch the commercial below to see Decker footage of Decker working out, playing football, and in the locker room using Proactiv products while shirtless.
A new commercial for Casamigos Tequila shows the wild side and perhaps the dangerous side of tequila, warning people that “It Could Happen, Please Drink Responsibly.” It’s a short film written and produced by George Clooney, and stars him, his girlfriend Stacy Kiebler, his good friend and business partner Rande Gerber, as well as his wife Cindy Crawford. The short film was directed by Oscar Nominee Grant Heslov of Smokehouse Pictures.
Here’s how the company was born: “Longtime friends George Clooney and Rande Gerber love tequila. On the rocks, by the shot, at times, straight from the bottle. Tequila-filled nights with friends is how Casamigos was born. Their idea was to make the best-tasting, smoothest tequila whose taste didn’t have to be covered up with salt or lime. So they did.”
In the video, each of the four of them take turns walking into the bedroom to find their spouse sleeping with one of the others. The one you’re probably most interested in is when Crawford walks in to find Clooney & Gerber in bed together. Hot. Watch the video below.
I feel like it’s somewhat of an homage to Friends with the hilarious Jennifer Aniston returning to a coffee shop in a new commercial for Sky Broadband.
In the spot, the coffee shop employees are concerned about Aniston who has drank countless cups of coffee and is completely wired. When they go over to ask if she’s okay, they learn that she’s been having trouble with her wi-fi at home and thus needed to used the internet at the cafe. That’s when they tell her about Sky Broadband and from there, the wacky wired woman bolts out of the cafe to make the switch in her internet provider.
Watch this new funny commercial that is airing in the United Kingdom right now below.
The controversial energy shot, 5-Hour Energy has just come out with a new commercial that seems to be inspired by the famous Old Spice guy commercials that star Isaiah Mustafa.
In the commercial, the hot guy shown above shares his crazy, unrealistic list of activities and tasks that he has accomplished in the last five hours. Whether that is having gone for a run (while knitting a sweater), writing a novel (in Spanish), or recording his debut single (also in Spanish…LOL). I especial love the disclaimer caption that reads, “For comedic purposes only. Not actual results.” LOL.
I’ve probably only ever had one of these once or twice and there’s a lot of discussion right now around their potential negative effects on you and whether their “no crash” claim is actually accturate. All of that aside, enjoy watching the hot 5-Hour Energy guy in the entertaining commercial below.
