Ha, this is the greatest ad! Yes, it’s going off of simple sex appeal, but the commercial is so self-aware and unabashed about this pandering to sex appeal that it is hilarious. I am looking up that app right now.

It’s funny that the below poster (a guy) was reminded of the Sexy CPR commercials when he saw this; I was immediately thinking of Isaiah Mustafa talking ever-so-wonderfully to us ladies via his Old Spice commercial.

You’re welcome, ladies.

I keep seeing Rethink pop-up everywhere. They’ve been doing some great creative over the past year.

This isn’t brilliant, but it’s kinda funny and it’s probably going to be effective. It reminds of a Cannes-winning campaign that I’ll post immediately after this (you’re welcome, boys).

Ok, ok, so I admit that upon first viewing this, the ghost of my presumptuous college-freshman-with-all-the-expertise-of-an-intro-level-women-and-gender-studies-self had a reaction to these ads perhaps best articulated by…

"Aw hell no."

Aw Hell No

HOWEVER, upon taking a closer look, I saw that the company is Playboy. And like a switch, my inner feminist disappeared and was replaced by someone very much digging these ads! It literally is Playboy’s business to objectify women in a sexual manner, and there are plenty of straightforward ways to show that. Yet here they are stepping up the playfulness of this game by adding brilliant humor, gorgeous pictures, and a neat logo to the mix. Bravo, Y&R South Afica, this was fantastically done!

AH YES—another Old Spice Man installment! W+K, you’re killing me with hilarious brilliance, love this campaign… even if this video isn’t quite as strong as some of the older ones.

This is EPIC!!! A lot of the other NZ anti-drunk-driving commercials are quite shock-inducing, but this one seems to hit the nail on the head in terms connecting with our generation.

And come on… you just can’t beat that accent, can ya, mate?

Pretty schweet, New Zealand, preeetty schweet.
