Standard Time Piles on Innuendeo for Too Faced

Los Angeles-based Standard Time has a new ad for cosmetic company Too Faced’s “Better Than Sex” mascara.

As you might expect, the spot, starring Jeannie Ma (of Style Network’s How Do I Look and NBC’s Today Show segment “Fashion Tips Today”) is ripe with sexual innuendo. As Ma opens up her mascara tube a low, sultry voice begins to seduce her. The mascara gives her the “longest, thickest, most luscious lashes of her life” with a satisfying experience Ma is not likely to forget, making “the case for eyelashes as the new erogenous zone.” Ma makes suggestive faces while applying the mascara, as the innuendo-filled narration piles on. If this all seems a little ridiculous, that’s kind of the point, as the approach fits with Too Faced co-founder Jerrod Blandino‘s “wild sense of humor and more-is-more style.” Stick around for credits after the jump.

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.

With the NBA Lockout Looming, This is All We Have

Basically, it comes down to next Monday’s meeting between the NBAPA, the owners and commish David Stern (yes, it seems these meetings are proving to be increasingly useless) to see whether an actual season will happen, so, in the meantime, why don’t you NBA fans and gamers take solace with this spot for NBA2K12 from 72andSunny. Basically, it’s a follow-up to Jordan’s “Kiss my rings, biyatch” spot and asks fans, whether they be celebs like Drake and the dork from Dodgeball or your average joe, to profess what they think is the greatest NBA team ever. What say you, audience? Damn, this impending lockout irks us. Credits after the jump and, thanks to a tipster’s heads up, a Samuel L. Jackson-starring Nike spot that aired during the last NBA lockout in 1998.

Michael Jordan Would Like You to Kiss the Rings

 

The greatest hoopster of all time (in our humble opinion, at least) takes center stage in this new spot from 72andSunny for NBA2K12. Here, Air Jordan reflects on each of the six rings he won with the Chicago Bulls (let’s forget the Wizards era, please) and still argues that his game-winning shot in the ’98 finals against Utah was not aided by a push-off. But yeah, we agree with you MJ, it’s really hard to top the 95-96 era Bulls, complete with a 72-10 record and Dennis Rodman‘s multiple hairstyles. Are you one to disagree? Credits after the jump.
