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.

Fuzz Wax Bar "Street Waxing" (2013) :1:10 (Canada)

Some time this summer, the Fuzz Wax Bar (a popular destination in Canada, because Canadians are apparently still on the metrosexual trend) decided to promote its place by sending a male model covered with wax strips down the streets of Toronto.

Torontonians were very excited to torture said model. I don't know if their excitement stemmed from a deep-seeded repression of aggression normally not seen in their usually mild mannered tempers, or whether or not they just really hate the fact some Canadians are still on the metrosexual bandwagon.

Either way I have it on good authority the UN is currently investigating for human rights abuse.

Molson Canadian - The Beer Fridge (2013) (Canada)

It's been over ten years since the man ranted I am Canadian before the rantastic actor dashed off to the USA, as he is whatever for pay, and then I badlanded it all when Australia put prawns on the barbie and beets on their burgers because holy crap I've been doing this for too long. What year is it? This isn't my beautiful house, this is not my beautiful wife....

Science World - Pain Killer - (2013) :30 (Canada)

Did you know that orgasm cure pain? I did, it's the reason I have a wry smile when I tell him I have a headache and nod to the bedroom. Not the most unknown of facts, it's why that time of the month is helped by a lot of fun before that time of the month, you catch my drift.... So yes, Science World is still running the campaign where they educate us in a funny way.

This little 30 har-har skit comes from Dominic Prevost and Justin Li out of Rethink Vancouver. They explain why they hired Adam & dave to shoot it:

“Adam & Dave had a great vision and we relied on their comedic instincts to help push the performances. Anytime there's a chance to trust a couple of strangers with sailor tattoos and beards, we're pretty much game."

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.

Amnesty International FREE PUSSY - street poster QR code campaign - (2013)

Well.. The music is good.

There, I thought I'd open on a positive note, because I'm not feeling it here guys. You make wild posters with a naughty pun, that people need to QR code to see the full message, and you put these all over the stripper part of town? Yeah? You put posters reading FREE PUSSY next to topless bars.

Who do you think QR coded that? People who expected free pussy? Yeah, I don't know either. Look, I'm glad you increased your write-in by 60% (from what? Zero?) as that can't really hurt I suppose.. But did Pussy Riot get freed thanks to this campaign?
