J.K. Trotter · 12/26/14 11:55AM

Earlier this month, a video titled “LEAKED GAY TACO BELL COMMERCIAL” appeared on YouTube. It depicts two guys consuming Taco Bell, playing skee ball, riding a Ferris Wheel, cuddling on a picnic blanket, unearthing buried treasure (?), getting married, and riding a jet-ski and a motorcycle together. And Taco Bell won’t say whether it’s real.

Last week, Justin Bieber revealed plans to launch a perfume for his legion of female fans called "Someday." Now there's an official commercial for the fragrance. The ad's message?

Matt Cherette · 01/12/11 04:42PM

Maybe advertising was different in the 1970s—when this commercial for Fig Newtons made its debut—but I honestly cannot fathom why Nabisco would think that this creepy-as-all-hell ad would make anyone want to buy anything. Like, ever. Watch inside.

A City is Transformed into a Technological Playground

Christopher Han · 12/04/10 04:00PM

It's hard to tell what this commercial is for - or that it's a commercial at all. Batelco, a telephone company in Bahrain (a country in the Persian Gulf) thought it'd be cool to watch objects transform and stuff.

Wegmans—yes, the supermarket—has a couple of new holiday-themed commercials out! That's not shocking. What is a bit surprising, however, is the fact that they feature Alec Baldwin as a pie/meal-buying... TV star? Anyway, both 30-second spots are inside.

Here Are 60 Seconds of Padma Lakshmi's Boobs

Matt Cherette · 09/17/10 01:11PM

Apparently, Top Chef host/supermodel/ex-wife of Salman Rushdie Padma Lakshmi has a jewelry line. As this one-minute commercial for the line shows, however, it appears Lakshmi's greatest selling point isn't her necklace, but what her necklace rests on. (Boobs.) Watch inside.
