Dallas Restaurant & Bar: Baby's Arse / print, Singapore

Supposedly someone at Dallas.sg the high falutin' restaurant for family parties and great big diners signed off on this double entendre, if you want to believe that. Yep, if you're so hungry you could eat a baby's arse through the bars of a cot, you should "try ours instead".

You know this would have worked had it been a restaurant and brothel.

Flamingo Casino - Meet the family - (2012) :30 (USA)

Peter Dietrich directs this BBDO SF spec effort for Flamingo Casino.

The spot is...well, basically, a dude meets his girlfriend's family and they're all hot. Including the sexy mermaid goldfish and the dad who is a hot chick with a dad's voice. Because the boyfriend gets more than he bargained for. Or something.

It feels like it's a Bud Light spot transplanted as a Las Vegas resort hotel spot.

What does one say to this?

Beyond the sexy lady factor there's not much to say about it that can redeem it into anything approaching interesting or good.
