Bertolli - Cooking with hot sexy Italian chef, Alfredo Caldo-Freddo - (2013) 3:20 (Australia)

Bertolli - Cooking with hot sexy Italian chef, Alfredo Caldo-Freddo - (2013) 3:20 (Australia)

Welcome to the most tired (sexist) troupe of advertising yet, it's the shirtless guy cooking in all his unhygenic glory.
This time it's Bertolli who introduces the "hot sexy Italian chef, Alfredo Caldo-Freddo". Alfredo teaches us the difference between Hot & Cold uses of olive oil, and which oil goes where - the light one is "to keep it moist on the inside" while strutting his stuff in nothing but an apron.

What happened to fat doofus dad, did we finally kill him off and replaced him with beefcake man in ads? Nope, doofus has a starring role as comedic relief as usual. Nothing new under the advertising sun.

Maple Leaf Foods "The mom who changed her life with bacon" (2013) 1:00 (Canada)

Maple Leaf Foods "The mom who changed her life with bacon" (2013) 1:00 (Canada)

This spot has many clichés. The overworked mom who bribes her family to do housework. The casting selection of a mom that doesn't look old enough to have three kids. The old "brand X saved my life," in a tongue in cheek way. The lazy dad who is lazy and never does anything because he is lazy and probably stupid because all dads are lazy and stupid. And of course, the client insisting they show the versatility of bacon.

Let me tell you something about bacon and its uses. It's bacon. If you aren't Jewish, Muslim, vegetarian, or on a restrictive diet, the way you eat bacon is by the handful.

Now I need to go on a tangent because I got distracted by one error in this spot.

Potato Thins "hands free" (2013) :30 (Canada)

Potato Thins "hands free" (2013) :30 (Canada)

WORST. BUTTON. EVER. That's really all I have to say. Except, perhaps, Lay's called, and they want their "Betcha can't eat just one" strategy back.

Remington - The HyperSonic Rifle Bonded - (2013) :30 (USA)

Remington - The HyperSonic Rifle Bonded - (2013) :30 (USA)

Currently airing, this ad shows the most lethal big-game ammunition ever devised say Remington.
"With hyper-charged velocities up to 200 fps faster than standard loads, HyperSonic® Rifle Bonded delivers more than just laser-flat trajectories and higher downrange energies. It zips through hide, meat and bone with unrivaled devastation thanks to today's most advanced bonded bullet design, Core-Lokt® Ultra Bonded. No other high-velocity load on the market can measure up, and you'll only get it from the R&D masterminds at Remington."

You know what else you get from the masterminds of Remington? An ad that wouldn't be out of place as "CSI : Hunting Town" and the end line is a pun: "The fastest way to turn a Buck to four quarters".

TSFC - Surrender Your Say - (2013) :30 (Canada)

TSFC - Surrender Your Say - (2013) :30 (Canada)

What do we want? A CURE FOR TOURETTES! When do we want it? CUNT!

June 19th at 9AM EST the Tourette Syndrome Foundation of Canada (TSFC) is launching Surrender Your Say, a Twitter campaign created by Saatchi and Saatchi Canada, to bring increased awareness to the disorder that is the butt of so many jokes. Tourette syndrom doesn't just affect speech, it includes a spectrum of tic disorders. It is most often associated with the exclamation of obscene words a.k.a coprolalia, but this symptom is present in only a small minority of people with Tourette's. Despite this, it's the star of the campaign idea.

Oreo daily twist - Oreo social media campaign case study - (2013)

Oreo daily twist - Oreo social media campaign case study - (2013)

Already a favorite for Cannes awards, the Oreo Daily twist campaign will be much copied in social media from now on. Setting out to prove that a 100-year old cookie is as relevant as it ever was Oreo left the argument about 'which is better the cookie or the stuffing' behind, and went straight for the twist.
Every day, they took a Oreo twist to what was happening in the world, in pop culture, in sports, in music, in media. Some were simple social media 'posters' if you will, starring the oreo-cooking with rainbow stuffing. Others were interactive banners, like when they celebrated 40 years of Pong. It's a modern take on the old topical press campaign, at internet-speeds. Once a day, a new twist. Bite-sized witty images easily shared over twitter, facebook and pinterest.

Tic Tac / 4 calories / Motel Room "Shake things up" - (2013) 3:00 (USA)

Tic Tac / 4 calories / Motel Room "Shake things up" - (2013) 3:00 (USA)

I honestly don't want to know why some of the things are they way they are in this bizarre, hallucination style scene in a shoddy motel written and directed by Crobin as a spec piece for Tic Tac. That's "Shake things up" Tic-Tac, and I feel a bit shook up after watching this disturbing three minute bit. So many ??????
