Chip Shot: I may get up and go jogging today. I could also win the lottery. Same odds.

 

 
Selfies have gone too far.

 

Lower Your Bills, Not Your Standards

 

 

Here’s an entertaining commercial from Jechange, a French insurance company.

The Paper Makes the Toilet

I think these print ads are from Germany. Wherever they’re from, good job.

Vintage Wall Paper Cleaner Ad

 

I can’t imagine why Climax Cleaner isn’t still around.

The Future of Websites

If you have anything to do with owning, designing or programming a website, you need to take a look at Jeff Dunham’s new venture in that area. It’s undoubtedly a look into the future of websites.

Be sure to move your cursor across the page. Pretty awesome.

Dale’s Dates Used to Make Him Wear One of These

Cold head? You need The Face Blanket! Seriously, you do.

Cottonelle Says it’s so Good, Users can go Commando

Cottonelle wants you to "go commando." That's right, the toilet paper brand says you should walk around without underwear because its CleanRipple texture imparts a superior clean. And in this ad, the lady does just that.

Kids Clothes Covered in Pandas Having Sex?

Indonesian Police are asking the public to please help prevent the sale of children’s clothing with depictions of pandas having sex. Sorry, but this is true.

Funny New Honda Ad Demonstrates the Advantage of Lane Watch Display

 

 

 

Here’s a funny little commercial for Honda that a lot of parents will be able to relate to.

McDonald’s Perfect Ad for the Oscars

I know McDonald’s takes a lot of heat from fast food haters, but I’m not among that group, and I admire much of the chain’s advertising. During the Oscars on Sunday night, McDonalds ran this very creative ad. See if you can decipher all of the movies referenced in the ad.

I still haven’t figured out “12 bad guys + 1 cop + 2 bare feet” … Ooops. Was just notified that it references “Die Hard.” Remember Bruce Willis walking on glass?)

 

M&M Oscar Ad … “Do You Think I’m an Idiot?”

 

 

Here’s a funny Oscar ad from M&M’s. They seldom let us down.

Great After Valentine’s Day Furniture Ad

The ad above is from the U.K. and uses very few words to say a lot.

Deep Food Thoughts from Cookie Monster

THIS IS TEST 

“It’s weird that we cook bacon and bake cookies.” Here is a 90 second video of deep, but funny thoughts from Cookie Monster.

Apparently Even Jesus Benefitted from Marketing

Jesus Christ pulled off some pretty impressive miracles in his day: turning water into wine; healing the blind; feeding the multitude with the loaves and fishes.

But according to this video, those miracles needed to be “publicized” to be effective. So He turned to Montreal's 1one Production—at least, according to this "never-before-seen original footage" of Christ and his marketing team from a couple thousand years ago.

Stunts are apparently the forte of 1one Production. But … I’m guessing here … I predict some negative fallout from using Christ as a pitchman for the agency.
