Buick vs Volvo - a car so comfortable it's like an extra room x 2

Nothing new under the sun, you know. Here's two ads, one from the 1960s showing that the Buick has such comfortable lounge seats you might want to lounge in it, and one from more recent years showing the same idea for Volvo.

It's funny when that happens, isn't it?

The bare-chested spokesman: shirtless shilling of edible things trend 2013

As we already noted in the zesty guy gets around post, there's no shortage of shirtless men in advertising these days - and sometimes the spokesmodel is the same guy but for different brands. The trend did not begin with Old Spice, Brawny or even Fabio shilling I can't believe it's not butter. Hell, we've even seen a naked Piers Morgan, who may not be a beefcake but at least he smelled like one.
It seems that this trend has peaked in 2013. Is it perhaps because it's aiming for the 'pink pound' (or dollar if you will), while scoring the bonus free press of offending a million moms, or are we all just easily swayed by shirtless men these days?

Honey-Boo Boo launched with watch&smell cards

The TLC 'world premiere event' last Wednesday, July 17, " Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" was launched with scratch&sniff cards. Watch and sniff! So when the redneck olympics of sliding around the kitchen linoleum drenched in butter happened, you could scratch your card and smell butter. When mama June sniffed a babies head, you could smell the scent of baby. "Scent of a baby" should be a chick-flick.

Youtube's "ambush advertising" in makeup tutorial channels, been done thrice

Stealth advertising in youtube channels is popular, so popular we have badlanders happening. Maybe this type of advertising should have its own name? Ambush advertising? Kiss and sell?

Oreo Daily twist vs Google daily doodle - only one wins a Cannes Lion

So, still hungover from Cannes, Oreo and DraftFCB are basking in the shine of their glorious Lion win for Oreo Daily Twist, when lady-who-has-real-job™ asks... "How is the Oreo thing any different from the Google doodle?" OH PLEASE! Back off, lady, this area is for professionals in advertising only. Just because you educate the next generation of consumers doesn't mean you have any idea about what makes an ad campaign. Have a seat in that tiny uncomfortable desk over there while I explain.

Animal auditions in Badland - Frontier Airlines vs Frontier communications

Sure sure, we see ads that are very similar. We see ads that have the same idea. We see ads that have the same base idea, from companies that have the same name? Hold up, that last one is a rarity so lets look at Frontier vs Frontier, because hilarious.
