Special Super Bowl Ad Previews

 

Go Daddy Ad Upsets so Many People That it Won’t Run During the Big Game

 

 

Okay … I used to be a tree so I’m not real fond of dogs. That being said, this Go Daddy ad made me lol. Seriously … it’s funny. BTW, note the driver of the truck near the end of the ad … its Danica Patrick.

But it upset so many others that it has been pulled and will not run during the Super Bowl. Groups felt that it promoted puppy mills. The ad is a parody of this Budweiser ad from last year’s Super Bowl.

Favre and Carve is Funny

Here’s a full length version of Wixom’s big game commercial featuring Brett Favre, Emmitt Smith, Terrell Owens and others.

Kardashian “Save the Data” is Funny

This T Mobile ad premiered on Conan O’Brien’s show this week and will be featured during the Super Bowl. Nice to see Kim make fun of herself.

I sort of took off from blogging today.

Old Heineken Ad is Still Sort of Funny

 

Here’s a funny foreign Heineken ad from a few years ago featuring a well-known American TV and film personality.

The TSA Found 2,212 Firearms in Carry-Ons Last Year, and Most Were Loaded

 

According to the TSA, the number of people trying to bring firearms through airport security is going up every year.

In 2014, a record 2,212 firearms were seized at the nation’s airports. Eighty three percent of those were loaded!

That’s a 22% increase over 2013, when 1,813 firearms were taken from travelers’ carry-ons. The TSA says the number of firearms seized at airport security has been going up almost every year since 2005.

Airports with the most gun activity include:

1. Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW): 120
2. Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL): 109
3. Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport (PHX): 78
4. George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH): 77
5. Denver International Airport (DEN): 70

Carl's Jr. Regional Super Bowl Ad

Hold onto Your Patties

Carl's Jr. has released an extended version of its regional Super Bowl ad. It shows as much skin as you’d expect.

It's called "Au Naturel," and indeed, it appears to show Charlotte McKinney walking around in the buff—with suggestively shaped everyday objects strategically covering her up personal parts. There is a twist at the end, of course.

Scorsese, De Niro and DeCaprio in Funny Foreign Casino Ad

Martin Scorsese famously has two favorite actors, Robert De Niro and Leonardo DiCaprio. But De Niro and DiCaprio have never worked on a Scorsese project together—until now.

Here’s an entertaining trailer for a short film called The Audition. It stars both actors and the director—and sets up a rivalry between De Niro and DiCaprio, with the two vying for the same acting role. The short film will reportedly be unveiled later this year—and will also feature Brad Pitt, for extra star power.

The catch? The whole thing is an elaborate advertisement for two casino resorts: City of Dreams Manila in the Philippines and Studio City Macao in China.

Vintage A-Bomb Ad

Yup. In case there was a nuclear attack in the 50’s, all you needed to “wash contamination away” was Flobar detergent.

Paint by Number Toilet Paper

Notice that the only color you need is “brown.”
