“I suppose it’s possible this is part of some other, thematically different Under Armour ad that was mostly left on the cutting-room floor. But I’m putting it at even-money that Bryce Harper actually powerlifts shirtless in the dark wearing glow-in-the-dark neon-green socks, and insisted Under Armour show him as such in the commercial.”

that’s some clown workout gear, bro.

Look at this fucking bullshit right here

Fuck PETA.  Just, fuck you.

PETA is not particularly known for taste or tact in its ads but this is pretty high on the egregious scale.
It’s presuming people have never run into overweight vegetarians. This isn’t intended as body snarking. I’m just saying that in college I ran into some non-meat-eaters who were certainly as pudgy as yours truly because they were truly and honestly endomorphs or they ate a lot of junk food that didn’t have meat in it either. There’s a stereotype we have of vegetarians as healthy, skinny reeds who whine on about your disgusting habit of eating meat, and that’s in part because of PETA’s ad-shaming, actually. The truth is that going vegetarian or vegan requires a lot of work in terms of new proteins, and it’s not automatically healthier or better than a diet with meat in it. Generally, we ought to eat more plants and probably should eat meat more sparingly, but it’s about balance.
Nuance is not in PETA’s handbook, though.

Giving paternalistic and hateful social conservatives the finger is always a good thing.

Marketing Campaign of the Day: As if it weren’t enough that North Carolina already doesn’t recognize same-sex unions, the state votes next Tuesday on a ballot measure that reads: “Constitutional amendment to provide that marriage between one man and one woman is the only domestic legal union that shall be valid or recognized by this State.”
This ad campaign, by Winston-Salem agency The Variable, plays on segregation-era discrimination to shock voters into voting down the offensive legislation, called Amendment 1: “On May 8th, make history. Don’t repeat it.”
Yes, please.
[adsoftheworld]

And this is the type of campaign that makes some people spit blood.
Listen, I understand the metaphorical value of comparing discrimination of gay people today to black people under Jim Crow laws — even though black people were supposed to be equal under the law, states put laws in place that did everything but allow that. I get it.
I fully support marriage equality and think what N.C.’s doing is repulsive — BUT IT’S NOT LIKE YOU ACTUALLY HAD TO USE SEPARATE RESTROOMS OR DRINKING FOUNTAINS. YOU COULD HIDE BEING GAY. IT WAS FUCKING AWFUL AND NOT ANYTHING ANYONE SHOULD GO THROUGH, BUT YOU COULD PASS THROUGH SOCIETY BEING GAY OR LESBIAN. YOU COULDN’T HIDE BEING BLACK. YOU COULDN’T HIDE THE THING THAT MADE WHITE PEOPLE FORCE YOU OUT OF RESTAURANTS, HOTEL ROOMS, AND SHUNTED OFF BY REALTORS WHO WOULDN’T SELL A HOME TO YOU IN A CERTAIN NEIGHBORHOOD. YOU CAN’T FUCKING HIDE THE SKIN COLOR THAT DROVE WHITE MEN TO PUT ALL SORT OF ONEROUS GRANDFATHER CLAUSES, POLL TAXES, AND LITERACY TESTS IN PLACE TO DENY YOU A RIGHT TO VOTE.
Was there a black person working on this ad campaign at all? Because I understand the point they’re trying to make — it’s just clumsily done and with no respect to what my family members and many others actually went through decades ago.
(P.S. never mind that there could be a sizable number of people who really do agree with the image above and want to see it put in place.)

Chipotle’s Moving, Willie Nelson-Covering-Coldplay Grammys Commercial

Someone should tell all of the advertisers at the Super Bowl this is how commercials are done. 

(via Zap2it)

Love the Coldplay cover by Willie Nelson! Puts his own spin on the song. This commercial makes me sad at first…but then immediately very happy! LOL :)

please permit me to disagree. THIS SONG IS A COMPLETE FUCKING BUMMER. I remember because I used to like it a lot, especially because I first heard Coldplay’s original when I was going through a very rough relationship emotionally. I get what Chipotle intended but it doesn’t work.

Pabst Blue Ribbon commercial - 1979 - starring Patrick Swayze (by bigskyedit)

Beyond cool and weird. “I got Pabst Blue Ribbon on my miiiinnnnnnnd….”

To advertisers, Idiocracy isn’t just a possible dystopian future: it’s already here. And naive me thought Miller Lite had a monopoly on this ish. Am I the only one who finds that this stuff may actually be more insulting to men than women? Yes, it’s relentlessly hostile toward women in a society that often is, but it also assumes every man it’s targeting is completely devoid of a brain.

” I don’t give a shit. I do what I fucking want, which should be the first and last stupid retarded “man law” ever. Everything else is superficial bullshit”

Bingo.

(Mike’s note: I support this. One hundred fucking percent.)

I don’t know who invented the phrase “Turn in your man card,” but whoever it is should be taken out in the street and have his balls stomped on by a fucking marching band.

Every Sunday, I’m now subjected to some goddamn Miller Lite ad where the guys in it are like, “ZOMG! You’re drinking a generic light beer? YOU’RE SUCH A FAG! Turn in your man card, faggity fag fag!”

As if drinking Miller goddamn Lite is somehow a manly endeavor. This shit needs to stop. There’s no such thing as a man card. If there were, it would be the single most douchetastic thing in the history of the world. Darren Rovell would keep 12 of them in his money clip. Advertisers and film studios love to exploit the whole supposed male identity crisis they think America is suffering through right now. What’s that? You won’t drink Miller Lite? DURRRRR THEN I GUESS YOU’RE JUST A WALKING VAGINA DURRRRR BUY OUR SHIT.

No. Fuck you. If I want to drink some piss warm generic light beer, I’ll do it. If I want to take a tandem bike ride with Peter King and enjoy a citrusy Shock Top while watching the sun set, I’ll do it. You want my man card? Take it. COLLECT ALL OF THEM. You get enough man cards and I bet they’ll give you a $10 rebate at the Ed Hardy Shop. I don’t need it. I’m not a real man. I listen to Snow Patrol. I drink rum and Diet Cokes. I like a good number of Hugh Grant movies. I don’t give a shit. I do what I fucking want, which should be the first and last stupid retarded “man law” ever. Everything else is superficial bullshit.

Next time someone tells you to turn in your man card, reward them with a boot to the teeth and a shit on their porch. And never drink Miller Lite. It’s dogshit.

the one thing I really loathe about football season are the beer ads, which constantly prove one thing about big companies, the NFL, and the NCAA: they really do think we’re all crass, homophobic dumbfucks. (Many of us do act like this, but what is lost in translation is that dumb, stupid, crass, and heteronormative banter among many groups of dudes is often laced with high amounts of sarcasm. At least in my circle of friends, we say bizarre, weird, and vile things to tweak everyone else to say it. Rarely do we actually mean or want to do said things.)

You do have to admire Getafe’s, um, unique efforts to grow its fanbase in a city with Real & Atletico already dominating Madrid’s attention.

(NSFW for sure.)

if one of you ever develops this, please think of me for residuals.

Eff all those facial scrubs that get advertised “for men.” There’s one we could really use, particularly for those of us getting closer to 30 or on the other side of it: one that will help kill all the dead cells and get rid of the splotches on the face after the morning boot from last night’s party.

I already have a product name line for you: “Try ‘Hair Of The Dog’ Revitalizing Facial Scrub. ‘Cause your weekend’s just beginning.”

In the never-ending series of “Colin is Forever A 12-Year Old Boy”, let us enter this recent ad for BlackBerry Messenger, in which everyone describes the ease of using BBM. The problem is that this sounds way too much like a good old BM, and the image is not helped by the gay dude’s Dirty Sanchez lip-broom.

Heineken Light: a poor understanding of the transitive property.

If “the ladies” really do love Peter Cetera, meaning I must love him by default, then I think homosexuality may be an optimal alternative.
