Goes down easy

Goes down easy... Lots of companies use sex to sell their products, but few as boldly as Flirt vodka. [via digital graphite via NSLog();]

There was a series of ads for a nightclub last year that featured several Austin Powers-like sexual innuendo "Ha ha it looks like he's humping that girl from this perspective" shot. One was at a beach.. one was at a bar.

It won all sorts of awards, but I can't remember the name of the club (I guess that's indicative of how crappy of advertising it was). I'm also too lazy to dig up my Communication Arts annuals to find out. Anybody know it?

I'm assuming that the caption is hilarious if you read Bulgarian. Otherwise, that ad has less redeeming value than an episode of "Three's Company." I'll stick to Popov, the pride of (disgusting) Lewiston, Maine.

Sure, I'll go blind, but I won't be supporting an ad agency run by sixth graders.

(disclaimer: Don't really drink Popov vodka.)

cogat: Thanks for the links -- that's funny as hell! Must have been fun setting everyone up.

You have a dog and Bingo was his name-o, thanks cogat. And I'm still with it. I'm with it X-treme, whippersnapper.

I like how you cannot determine the gender of the, uh, provider. Ensures more sales that way, eh?

Hmm... Either that, or it implies that if you drink enough, the gender of the person going down on you doesn't matter, which would ensure fewer sales, at least from me.

Hmm, I think I see painted fingernails.

Of course, maybe that doesn't prove anything anymore, what do I know.

Good point, if I blow up the res, the fingernails ARE painted ... but in some ungodly metallic shade of ... some color.

It's probably a drag queen, then.

Only one vodka for me, Iceberg! But it doesn't come with a free blow job, so I might try this Flirt one.
