I know there has been a lot of news about Russian recently, but I can't believe no one is talking about this. A zoo in Moscow is suing the advertising company Art-Msk after they rented a raccoon, used it in an ad featuring a topless woman, and returned the raccoon in a state of shock. Seriously, in Russia, you can rent a raccoon from the zoo.
This week on the Fleshbot Podcast, we did our first crowdsourced minisode!
In the days before the internets, horny teenagers had to scramble to find something to jerk off to, usually settling for hints of cleavage in mom's Lillian Vernon catalog. Now lingerie company Jane Pain has presented a throwback to those halcyon days with their new ads featuring hints of cleavage. The only problem is, the cleavage in this particular campaign is an elbow, a shoulder, and a knee. God damnit! How am I supposed to get off to an armpit?
Nobody like Goatse. Nobody. The memes it has spawned are certainly amusing, but that original picture is pure nightmare fuel. If for whatever reason there were people in the affluent Buckhead section of Atlanta that had not been exposed to Goatse prior to last week, they can now join the ranks of can't-unseers everywhere when the image was splashed across a billboard.
Spirit Airlines, aka A La Carte Airlines, has just unveiled their latest advertising campaign and it's a doozy. In the past they've courted controversy by making references to smoking crack and MLK's "I Have a Dream" speech, but for this particular ad campaign, they're going full on giggling teenage boys with all manner of sexual innuendos to celebrate the acquisition of their 69th aircraft.
Crashing your car due to the sight of a naked woman is no longer exclusively an Austrian problem apparently. That's right, Austria, Russia will see your several car accidents and raise you, I don't know, 500. That's the estimated number of accidents caused in a single day due to the mobile advertisements seen above.
We all know that sex sells, but sex has never really been presented overtly in advertising (unless you count SNL's classic Schmitt's Gay commercial). Well, leave it to Slovak artist Matus the First to turn potentially the unsexiest thing in history, the pencil sharpener, into the most erotic inanimate object since the peach pie in Labor Day.
A wise man once said, "Sex sells." I think it was Abe Lincoln. Either way, sex has been used by plenty of companies over the years, some more overtly than others. Fashion labels tend to be the most forthright in this regard, just flat out putting naked people in their ads.
Is it an orgy? Is it a rave? As long as everyone's wet and sexy, does it really matter?
If you haven't made plans for this weekend, you should see if you can squeeze in a trip to Lilliput. The locals have always been into bondage, but ever since a shipment of Durex lube washed up on their shore, they've been much more hospitable to tourists!
Highlighters, sponges, hearing aids, and canned soup: what do these things have in common? They all have something to do with fucking! Really? No. But don't tell that to these advertisers; those campaigns ain't cheap.
Hey, remember Spice (the network, not the drug from "Dune")? One of our readers does, and his memories of a certain sexy advertisement on Spice are so potent, so permanently gnawing at his brain, that he reached out to us for help. In fact, this is the second plea we've heard from the same man, three years after the first one. His lust is deep and dire, folks.
If you remember the advertisement Michael Bay did for Victoria's Secret in 2010 (which you naturally do, because it was epic), you recall there being some motorcycles, knife throwing, desert strutting, helicopters, and finally a big explosion. His latest video has a sweet looking Lamborghini Aventador, but that's about it.
Next Friday, we're having our monthly burlesque show, Fleshbot Friday at Headquarters Gentlemen's Club, and Lisa Ann is going to be our very special host. We saw her at AEE, and as soon as she learned we're with Fleshbot, she started going on about how stoked she is to host. We're so touched! She's a legend and she digs us! So here's a shameless plug out of the mouth of Lisa Ann.
Having trouble with your Christmas shopping? Looking for something special for that special someone? Agent Provocateur invites you to slap on some of their racy lingerie and take naughty Polaroids of yourself in the supply closet! Ironically, we bet Polaroid film is more expensive than that fancy underwear.
