Fruit of the Loom Infuses Luck into New Underwear

Fruit of the Loom and CP+B teamed up to make sure our private parts were covered in luck. Seriously. Lucky underwear. How, you ask? Well, a few guys traveled around America, rubbing new underwear with good luck in places like the Hoover Dam in Boulder City and the Seven Star Cavern Chinatown Wishing Well in Los Angeles. The project is not scientific, but if you care about luck, the original run called for 1,000 men’s underwear and 1,000 women’s underwear. The above video shows a brief behind-the-scenes look at the hokum methods used to make the underwear lucky.

As of publication, 1718 of the 2000 pairs of lucky underwear are still available for an affordable $10 each.

The narrator of the video mentions infusing “legitimate luck” into the fabric, which is stupidly ambitious, since there’s nothing legitimate about luck. That’s the point. But there’s something charming about the earnest dedication and effort Fruit of the Loom put into the project. Plus, the underwear is inexpensive and  soft, so if you don’t care for superstition, there’s always functionality to fall back on. Credits after the jump.

Kraft Mac & Cheese Theft Warrants a Child’s Revenge

Well, at least Crispin Porter + Bogusky is keeping it real by keeping the VO work of once again-rehabbing Ted Williams intact in this latest round of spots for Kraft Mac & Cheese. This time, the concept is “Noodle Theft” and we here we have “Officer Dan” (though we would’ve preferred this Officer Dan) lecturing some young redhead about stealing. Apparently, a little bogarting of the prepackaged, gooey goodness turns young’uns into the children of the corn. You’ve been warned. Check out the second spot and credits after the jump.
