The Week in Advertising: Everywhere, Vulvas

Note: The first ad we share is pretty NSFW!!!

Today on the Week in Advertising we tackle the sensitive subject of vagina-scented perfumes. Er, colognes. We have no idea where this concept originated, but the ads for it are pretty…pretty awesome. That is to say a guy sniffs the seat of a stationary bike that was being used by a woman. Awkward? Totally. But you should probably see it just in case.

The Week in Advertising: Matt Braves the Elements (Or at Least His Hotel Room) at SXSW

Even though my intrepid cohort Matt Van Hoven has been running around covering all the digital hoopla in Austin the past few days, he still found time to join his TWIA co-host Kevin Allocca from the safe haven of his hotel and file this report. As you will see, Matt’s SXSW trip was chock-full of adventure.

The Week in Advertising: American League’s Best Player Insulted by Second Best Gaming System

Playstation: who do they think they are? Yeah they have sweet “video games” that keep childrens and adult men sane &#151 but along the way they’ve had to be mean a couple of times. Case in point: Joe Mauer. He’s good at…cricket, is it? Also Kevin Allocca is searingly absent from the show this week. Find out why by pressing le play.

The Week in Advertising: The Olympics Aren’t Your Pal, Buddy

Today on the show we went to Canada. Also, Kevin totally meant to say “you’re not my buddy, pal” in his segment. If you don’t know what that refers to you need to watch more SouthPark.

The Week in Advertising: CBS Bought All Their Own Ad Space

Today on the Week in Advertising, we take a look at the part of the Super Bowl no one cared about &#151 CBS’ many, many promos for their many, many programs.

Did you know there’s a new trend out there where instead of shaking hands people now just slap one another in the back of the head? Thanks, NCIS!

OK, fine, Letterman’s ad was great and yes, NCIS/CSIxMiami-Vegas-NewYork-TheMoon are the most watched shows or whatever. But do we really need to be reminded of that? Sure, CBS sold out all their ad space but it seems more likely that they limited inventory by filling a bunch of space with useless promos.

The Week in Advertising: Not Funny, Nothing to See Here

Sometimes when you try to make a Web show, it’s just straight up unfunny. Wait, actually ‘sometimes’ is an understatement. Today’s attempt at an ad revenge falls on its face, but only because the joke we were going for was killed by the trailer we tried to poke fun at. Valentine’s Day is a parody of itself, and therefore unjokeable. Is that a word?

The Week in Advertising: Mobile Ad Wars, Explained (and Made Fun of)

This week on the show, we take a stab at actually reporting something. I know, weird. Anyway, since the mobile phone world got all shook up at CES, we thought it prudent to explain the whole AT&T versus Verizon scenario &#151 the players, how it went down, and what the result was. We also took some time to get our revenge on the Luke Wilson work, which is about as heavy on truth as balloons on a scale. Forgive the failed attempts at humor, they’re Blake Gernsomething‘s fault.

The Week in Advertising’s Pieced Together Holiday Extravaganza (That’s What She Said)

Since I’m reporting from the wintry Midwest, the show had to be lopped together from older shows. With the help of producer Weston Almond, the talented Blake Gernstetter and hell’s demon, Kevin Allocca, the show went on. Wait for the “that’s what she said” joke &#151 it actually makes sense!

The Week in Advertising Taken Over Violently by Sexy Faction

This week I am writing from American chilly-ville Chicago, which means the ‘Week in Advertising’ was open to violent take-over by pretty much anyone who knows where we tape it. You’ll notice some differences in this week’s show &#151 namely, I am dead. Also, my replacement is totally sexy. And a little violent.
