If anyone here can help me decipher how on earth anyone might think this was a good idea, feel free. The first ad has Silvio Berlusconi and his personal collection of bound and gagged barely clad women in his trunk, which sort of makes sense as I assume that's how he lets his girlfriends travel with him (zing!). Next there's Paris Hilton with a trio of Kardashians in her trunk, and the third ad puts some gender equality in it as Michael Schumacher stows away Sebastian Vettel, Fernando Alonso, and Lewis Hamilton in his trunk. Everyone has junk in their trunk! Wait, what?

Placing these in central locations and at specific points on Obama's planned road trip, during his official visit to Israel on 20-22 March 2013, there to greet him on his way the headline simply reads "Pollard's been waiting since your college days". Jonathan Jay Pollard was born in Galveston, Texas and while working as an American civilian intelligence analyst, he passed classified information to Israel. He pleaded guilty and received a life sentence in 1987. As his crime occurred prior to November 1, 1987, he is eligible for parole, and may be released on November 21, 2015. Israel granted Pollard citizenship in 1995.
thetutorcrowd.tumblr.com is the tumblr where all the helpful street graffiti tutoring has been collected for your enjoyment. You see, people who vandalize walls usually don't have the best grasp on spelling and grammar. They'll write slogans like "Less Boats, More Fish" (Oh wait, that was greenpeace), and forget where the apostrophe goes despite Bob the angry flower's helpful guide. So The Tutor Crowd, which is a website that helps you find tutors, have made this clever campaign to alert yobs out there of their services. Cheap on media?
Playboy are trying their hand on being cutting edge advertisers, with this street poster that has augmented reality. First, you have to download the Layar app in order to be able to see the augmented reality attached to this street poster. Like the Lexus swimsuit model print ad which already used an extra layer to a print ad, the extra you get to see with this poster is simply more of the ladies. Unlike the Lexus ad though, there's more that just what meets the eye, as the Layar app unlocks music playlists and behind the scenes videos from the models photo shoots as well.
When I got to chez Kidsleepy this evening from a long days work I checked the mail, and found this little mailer, warning me to not send money in the mail to foreign lotteries because they are a scam.
And by "warning me," I don't mean me but old folks. You can tell because the message is sponsored by the Old Folks Lobbyists, AARP.
I get it. Scamming is serious and for realsies. But wowzers, the back copy is so hilariously over the top, parts of it are written like a Cold War era relic:
You're told to mail or wire a small amount for taxes and fees to claim your prize.
What should you do? Hang up the phone! Ignore the email!
You just know the copywriter wanted to add extra exclamation points to each sentence. I can feel it.
In the world where there are no bidets (ie; everywhere but France), but urinary tract infections and there's a monthly Clean-Up in Aisle One needed Playtex have launched their Fresh + Sexy Intimate Wipes and are selling them on sexy-time, unlike competing brand products who only vaguely discuss "freshness" and target women only.
