Smirnoff Ice Encourages Ladies to Start ‘Straight Primpin’

Here’s a 3-minute long music video for Smirnoff Ice from director Jon Jon Augustavo. From what we can tell, it encourages young women to pre-game their nights out with a substance commonly instilled on others as punishment.

Sure, the “Bros Icing Bros” phenomenon of 2010 may have jumped the shark when Coolio got “Iced” in someone’s back yard. But for anyone between the ages of 21 and 30 who either likes playing stupid jokes or regularly finds themselves as a spectator of others’ stupid jokes, Smirnoff Ice is known as something bros make their bros chug. In fact, in 2010, Smirnoff Ice even admitted that the stupid meme helped kickstart sluggish sales of the milky white beverage. The next step? Get the ladies involved with the aid of canine Tumblr superstar Tommy Pom.

Could young women nationwide start sizzurpin’ the SmirnIce as part of their “Straight Primpin’” ritual? If you encourage widespread use of celebrity Pomeranians to get the pre-party started, anything’s possible. Download “Straight Primpin’” here and view credits after the jump.

Warning: ‘It’s Bo Time’ at Bojangles

Never heard of Bojangles’? Don’t be too surprised. According to their website, Bonjangles’ are only located in these states (and Honduras, for some reason). They’re like Chick-Fil-A or Popeye’s, but only located in SEC country where people talk in a drawl and most folks subsist on a diet of exclusively chicken and biscuits. It’s a strange place, the south, so their televisions ads must seem as odd to those in the godless north as the idea of wearing a button down Confederate flag shirt to a fancy restaurant. It would seem, for example, that Kentucky is apparently too forward thinking for a Bojangles’ franchise.

It would make sense in this case that “It’s Bo Time” is Bojangles’ slogan, after “Ain’t no party like a Bojangles’ party” proved to be a bit of a mouthful (kidding). In the spot from production company HELLO!, LA titled “Coach,” the high school (or college) football coach in question truly deserves some sort of award for his acting chops. When his players pour a bucket of hot chicken grease on his back, wow does he look surprised!

Residents of the southern United States, this is how stupid a production company from LA thinks you are. This is how stupid BooneOakley, NC thinks you are. This is how stupid a fast food restaurant thinks you are. They think you’ll find this crap hilarious. You know what? Yankees assume you’ll laugh at this, too. This whole campaign is a sad mess of condescension being vomited out in your face with a side of gravy.

Two more spots and credits after the jump, including one ad that offers a quarter gallon of iced tea for 99 cents.
