Back in August, images from Zac Efron’s modeling stint for John John Denim surfaced. At long last, we finally have the commercial to go along with the Brazilian brand’s ad campaign. At first glance, the clip could pass as Zac’s screen test for an upcoming installment of the Fast and Furious franchise. There’s so much machismo car revving, I half expected Vin Diesel or Paul Walker to pop up somewhere. That said, this newly-rugged bad boy Zac Efron is someone I can get behind. Before we check out the commercial, I have to get something off my chest.
Longtime readers of Homorazzi.com might remember I didn’t always feel that way about him. Two years ago, I wrote a post revealing five Hollywood actors everyone thought was hot, BUT me. Efron was on that list. I know, right? What a difference a couple of years make. The former High School Musical star has only gotten better with age. As a belated Happy Birthday (he turned 25-years-old on October 18), I’m officially removing him off that list and declaring I’m on the Efron bandwagon, which BTW I’d love to ride ;)
If you’re looking for something to brighten up your Monday, watch the following commercial by Expedia. In their new “Find Yours” campaign (in reference to finding “understanding”), the travel company really pulls on your heart strings and emphasizes how every trip is unique. “We know that every trip is unique, personal and has the potential to be transformational,” says Expedia. “With more travel options than anyone else, we exist to help each individual find exactly what it is they are looking for.”
The description of the video below reads: “On this trip, Artie Goldstein travels across the country to attend his daughter’s same-sex wedding, a journey that will test him, challenge him, and ultimately change him in unexpected ways.” It’s absolutely beautiful and I commend Expedia for putting this video together. It is such a touching story that I’m sure many families can relate to. I was holding back tears in this one for sure.
Watch the video below and share with your friends and family. I’m sure you’ll love it as much as I did.
A few months ago, photos of Britney Spears dressed as Cleopatra surfaced online. Now, we finally have our first look at the finished product. The X Factor judge donned gold attire to film a commercial for her newest fragrance, Fantasy Twist. This is Spears’ 11th perfume released with Elizabeth Arden. To date, Britney has reportedly sold approximately one billion bottles of her perfume since her debut fragrance Curious back in 2004. That’s a whole lot of girls (and some gays) smelling like the “Toxic” singer.
“I created Fantasy Twist to give women the power to choose their own destiny at will,” says Britney Spears in a statement. “Fantasy Twist embodies the two different sides of myself that I believe are also present in every woman. With notes of chocolate, jasmine, and kiwi, the Fantasy side captures me at my most sweet and sensual, making it perfect for daytime wear. Midnight Fantasy is for after dark, when I’m at my most mysterious and alluring. It contains notes of framboise and black cherry to create the enticing sense of danger that comes from a kiss with a seductive stranger.”
In the 50-second clip, the 30-year-old singer appears in four different looks including the aforementioned Cleopatra get-up. She sashays, vogues and whacks down a hallway while Goldfrapp’s “Beautiful” plays in the background. I wonder why none of Brit’s songs were used instead? Check out her new commercial which begins with a quote from French-Cuban author Anais Nin, “We don’t see things as they are, we see things as we are.”
When you’re an athlete and/or Olympian and you’re hot, you can definitely have a side career in commercials and product endorsements. Camille Lacourt, a 27-year-old backstroke swimmer from France didn’t compete in the 2012 Summer Olympics, but he’s the star of a sexy new commercial for Edison, an electricity & gas company in Italy.
In the commercial below, the hottie is enjoying a bath with his hands on his… iPad. He then stands up, showing off his tattoo featured on his lower v-abs and only covering his goods with his iPad. He’s excited because he just booked a trip to Thailand. Just then, the announcer steps into frame and bursts his bubble by reminding him that he has to pay his energy bills. I don’t have the exact translation, but that’s the general synopsis of the commercial.
The important part is that the Lacourt looks incredibly sexy in the commercial and it’s worth checking out. Rub-a-dub-dub, it might give you a… [insert rhyming word here] Enjoy!
This is the third day in a row that I’ve written something to do with homophobia in Australia. The first post was a couple days ago when someone from an Australian reality show was charged with a homophobic assault, urinating on someone and verbally assaulting them. Yesterday, I posted about the movie trailer for a film called Drown based on a play set down under that takes homophobia to the extreme in what looks to be a very intense story.
Only a matter of days ago, a new campaign called “No To Homophobia” just launched in Australia that encourages people to hold others accountable when they witness or are victims of homophobic behavior. It is to educate people that such behavior is not acceptable and that victims are protected under the law. What I love most about these this video campaign is that they’ve really shown so many examples of ways this can happen – all of which are unacceptable.
Watch the video below that shows the ads that have been released thus far.
Moving can be a time-consuming and stressful time in one’s life, and changing one’s address with everyone is just another loathed task to add to the list. Having lived in many places in Vancouver, there are many times where I’ve received mail addressed to the previous tenants of where I lived, probably because they forgot to change their addresses with certain companies or failed to use mail forwarding from the post office.
In this following Swedish commercial, a young gay couple finds love in Paris. After their whirlwind romance, one of the guys writes the other several letters to take their relationship to the next level. Unfortunately, the other guy moved and didn’t use the mail forwarding Service provided by the Swedish government postal service. Devastating.
So what happened as a result? You’ll have to watch below to see, but someone translated the Swedish captions on Reddit to read the following: “Today Kjell lives with Britt-Marie… Don’t miss any important mail… Make sure to get forward delivery when you move.”
No, it’s not what you think. Alexander Skarsgård isn’t Calvin Klein’s latest boy toy. Though I would love to read that tell-all book, especially if it had lots of pictures, only of Alexander of course. No one needs to see photos of Calvin’s wrinkly saggy butt.
The 35-year-old True Blood actor is the latest face for Calvin Klein fragrance, Encounter. Earlier this summer, the print ad campaign for Skarsgård’s stint as a model debuted. Now, the long-form commercial aka short film and standard commercial have been released. As you would expect, the sexy Swede is all kinds of hotness in both clips.
The film noir-inspired motion editorial tells a tale of unresolved tension and desire between a man and a woman. Alexander is seen driving in very inclement weather trying to reach his lady love, played here by model Lara Stone. Every time he stares into the camera, it’s intense. You’ll feel uncomfortably tingly, but in a good way. What I wouldn’t give for a steamy “encounter” with Skarsgård during a rainstorm. What a wet and wild time that would be. Check out both the long and short form of the commercial below.
Although the 2012 Summer Olympic Games are over, for your average Joe (and Joanne), it’s business as usual when it comes to keeping up fitness routines. That’s why Vitamin Water France enlisted the help of advertising firm Sid Lee Paris to help showcase the amateur athletes instead for a change.
Vitamin Water when out and brought a genuine sports commentator with them to relay the most impressive techniques or relative exploits live via microphone. The reactions of some of these unsuspecting fitness enthusiasts is priceless.
After the prank was revealed to the “good sports,” they were given a Vitamin Water by a cute guy (shown above) as a well-deserved reward for pushing their own limits in their respective sports. The tagline: “Because Vitamin Water loves athletes. Every single one of them.” Enjoy the video below.
