You Won’t See This Coming …

Okay this ad made everyone in my suitcase lol! It’s really funny and a really good ad for the product that is only shown at the very end of the commercial. Brilliant.

I like this Audi ad because I think it shows how Dale feels every time he gets in his corvette. It’s actually a really good ad … just the wrong car.

Manure Expo: Don’t Miss a Minute of the Action

The 2015 North American Manure Expo is taking place July 14 and 15 in Chambersburg, PA.

The Worst Summer Job Ever

 

 

A nineteen-year-old in Norway has been hired by a sexual health charity to play a giant penis who surprises passers-by by spraying them with confetti.

This funny commercial for the Adobe Marketing Cloud, shows just how hard it can be to fire a robot.

Annette was a Ventriloquist?

No, Annette was not a ventriloquist … but I’m sure she wished she was. I don’t know why she’s handling the Mannequin American above, which I think is a Rene figure. I think I’m in love.
