Diesel SFW XXX

Diesel's SFW XXX viral will have you looking at pinball machines in a whole different light. And harmonica playing. And the maracas. And corn on a cob. The list goes on.

The SFW porn thing is an established internet meme. Now it will be used to sell very expensive pants. Great.

Does this have something to do with blue pants?

omg someone said sex

You know, I'd seen this idea a few times in cheeky photoshop contests, but it took an agency with real chutzpah to take this to the whole next level of live action shoppin'.

Does the sound work for anyone, or is my browser just wonky?

Yes, and it is wonderful!

You realize you don't actually have to buy the pants if you watched and enjoyed the clip, right?

Just can't keep a good meme down, I guess.

Actually, I think under the new WTO copyright treaty, that would be considered piracy.

Heh. I watched the whole thing, then typed in the web address, briefly looked it over and quickly closed it because I thought it was for a band. But if I can buy pants, and expensive pants at that, it may just be worth another look.

So, just me expecting something about Vin Diesel and a sequel to xXx then?

And here I thought I'd get a ... references list... "Harmonica and trumpet" for every twenty gallons of gas I bought. Which is odd, because my car doesn't use diesel.

I really hated this meme before it went live action. Now it's fantastic.

Hey dickbag marketers/"creatives" out there seluthing for memes! I've got a fantastic motto for you-

"Diesel Clothing: It's like you're wearing a brief fad from 2006 from a site that is the epicenter of the dregs of the internet, that great invention that has made us all retarded."

(That being said, SFWPorn is always pretty funny, even when corporate)

the fuckers at 4chan should open an ad agency. I can hardly wait to see the motivational poster parody ads.

That's a recipe for a clusterfuck of epic proportions. In other words, I fully support that idea.

For me, pinball machines will always be (deliciously) tainted by this bearded Itallian.

The ad agency that created this is called the viral factory and I could amost bet money on them being members at 4chan. ;) [this was also posted on my advertising obsessed site yesterday in quicktime format for those who fancy QT.]

Nah, it's more like Jolt cola with shitload of rum and maybe blue curacao.

Diesel did pay for Something Awful Goons that inspired the ad to get free forum upgrades on Something Awful; so it's not like they're hiding the fact they got the idea there.

The director, Keith Schofield, has been featured on the Blue at least once before, and is pretty damn awesome.

The funny doesn't quite cover up the yucky. However, the starting material isn't as soulless as could be. I wonder if older porn was picked because we don't react as vicerally to it, or because it tends to feature a more relaxed, happy sense of sexuality, and is easier to goof on. Or if there's a difference.

@ambrosia, I suspect they used the old porn because it was easier to get clearances on it (if they bothered; I'm sure a lot of porn studios have a half-life most easily measured in femtoseconds).
