Chip Shot: The doctor said I need to drink more beer. Also, I’m calling myself “The Doctor” now.

Miss Piggy’s “Miss Adventure” Ad

On Dec. 5, Kate Spade New York will launch a new episode of its "Miss Adventure" holiday film series starring Miss Piggy and Zosia Mamet with a cameo by Man Repeller’s Leandra Medine. The film opens with Miss Piggy and old friend, Zosia Mamet on their way to a holiday party at the top of the empire state building. As the two see one another, they run into the most classic of all wardrobe malfunctions: they’re wearing the same outfit.

Chip Shot: Jingle all the way. No one likes a half-assed jingler.

 

 

 

The Present

 

 

To start off the holiday season, here is: “The Present,” created by Jacob Frey and Markus Kranzlers as a graduation project while they were students at Filmakademie Baden-Wuerttemberg in Ludwigsburg, Germany, has been shown at over 180 film festivals and won more than 50 awards.

It also landed the pair jobs. Today, Frey works at Walt Disney Animation Studios and Kranzler at Pixar Animation Studios.

Cheetos for Christmas

 

Now there are Cheeto-related gifts for that Cheeto maniac on your list.

 

Tired of that orange dust all over yourself? Wipe your fingers clean with Chester's Toilet Paw-per, or just wear the Flaming Hot Leggings so no one can see your stains of shame. People teasing you that you smell like Cheetos? Own it completely with Cheeteau, a new perfume.

 

Finally, there's a nod to the fact that Cheetos has heard the jokes you've been making about a certain Cheeto-colored human, and they've released Cheetos Bronzer to give you that vibrant orange glow, while everyone stands by green with envy.

Vintage Ads

 

I have no idea how the ad agency talked Sony into the ad above.

 

Clever but probably too politically incorrect for today.

 

Want to have more fun in bed? Just get a reading lamp!

Hard to remember that a reading light/radio was actually a revolutionary new product at one time.

Does anyone else see the irony here?

Cotton … for Uncomfortable Holiday Moments

 

The holidays are bound to lead to some awkward moments, like perhaps when Mom has a bit too much to drink. But if you're wearing comfortable clothing, they might just be a little more bearable.
