Kmart’s rendition of Yo Mama jokes on their commercial for free layaway.
*It’s obvious that the “dozens” came from a negative place in history and it should’ve remained there, but it graduated on through the years to rap battles and so on. But now…THERE HAS BEEN A BREAKTHROUGH!!
The “yo mama” jokes of old have received an uplifting makeover via Kmart’s new free layaway commercial with children on a playground checking out each other’s new duds for the school year.
Now we all thought that the jokes were funny because someone would have the funniest, but ugliest, comments about someone’s mother that usually mentioned her being “fat” or “stupid.” But not this time.
*During American Idol, Fox has shown commercials for the new “Beats Pill” featuring Nicki Minaj and comedian DeRay.
It’s a cute commercial that focuses on the Beats Pill’s sound capability by morphing it into Nicki’s loud mouth girlfriend.
But Radio Shack has a different ad for the newest addition to the Beats by Dr. Dre family. Radio Shack is attempting to bring sexy back to its brand, and by that we mean revive the brand by attracting to a younger crowd that have no nostalgic ties to the store.
In their ad, Robin Thicke is getting his sexy on with a group of scantily clad ladies with a Beats Pill between them all …even on a hot dog bun?
The commercial features the hot track by Robin Thicke called “Blurred Lines” featuring T.I. and Pharrell.
As they groove to the song, they keep passing around the Beats Pill that at one point ends up on a hot dog bun.
From that point on, you can’t see the Pill as anything but a hot dog or other phallic-shaped item.
The singer and sex tape extraordinaire just signed a $1 million deal for Princereigns Ingrown Hair Serum.
As “infomercially” as that sounds, you have to admit, the man is making money.
The product is made of all natural ingredients including aloe vera, eucalyptus, chamomile, sage, lavender, vitamin E and citrus oils.
Ray J is not alone on this new venture. Actress Sophie Monk is displaying the feminine side of things, showing the expansiveness of the line that includes shaving gel. The two filmed a steamy long-form commercial promoting the product (watch it below).
*Um, depending on how you feel about this topic, the following story may be disturbing … or downright hilarious.
Long Beach, Cali hip hop hop artist Warren G has decided to enter into the business of penis enhancements. Yes that’s right. He is the new spokesman for AffirmXL enlargement pills.
So far, five commercials have been released of the West Coast rapper acting as an “advisor” to a man contemplating using the pills.
In one of the commercials, A man is laying on the bed with a woman who says she’s “ready.” So he heads to the bathroom where he finds Warren sitting on the toilet reading a newspaper.
“What are you doing here?” the man says. “What does it look like I’m doing here?! You need to take your AffirmXL,” Warren tells dude.
Long story short, he advises the stimulated man to take AffirmXL and hand him a package of pills.
By the fourth commercial, the man has finally decided to actually take the pill, only to find Warren G has beaten him to the punch. The rapper is laying in his bedroom surrounded by scantily clad women, as he informs the man that it’s too late.
“I tried to tell you to take your AffrimXL but you didn’t want to listen. As you can see, I take my AffirmXL and now I’m going to regulate.”
Oh yes, a classic already. Not! Anyway, once you’re over the shock of Warren G doing this kind of commercial, we think you’ll enjoy the over the top approach of the spots.
*Snoop Dogg is promoting a new, caffeine-laced alcoholic drink that has prompted calls for its ban even before it hits the market next month.
The drink, called Blast by Colt 45, is manufactured by Pabst Brewing Company and scheduled for release on April 5, reports Reuters. A promotional video (seen below) features Snoop posing with scantily clad young women at a photo shoot.
The 23.5 ounce drink has a 12 percent alcohol content and comes in grape, raspberry watermelon, strawberry lemonade and blueberry pomegranate flavors.
Critics say it is a hazard for young people because it can be confused with soft drinks.
“You look at this product, and you think it’s a fruit drink,” said John Challis, senior vice president of Daytop Treatment Services, aimed at rehabilitating substance abusers. “They (breweries) are creating a demand, and then offering the supply.”
New York City Councilman Robert Jackson recently called for Blast to be banned in New York.
“Blast, along with similar drinks, is specifically targeted to younger people,” said Jackson’s aide, Martin Collins.
“In the short term, a drink like this masks and shrouds the effects of alcohol. That’s dangerous for our young people.”
Another caffeinated alcoholic beverage, Four Loko, made national headlines last October when nine college students in Washington State were hospitalized for alcohol poisoning after drinking it and similar beverages.
A month later, the Food and Drug Administration warned that caffeinated alcohol drinks were unsafe. New York and other states banned the sale of Four Loko. In response, its maker, Chicago-based Phusion Projects, said that it would no longer add caffeine to Four Loko. The new caffeine-free version is now on store shelves.
“Blast is the successor to Four Loko. The shiny, florescent cans attract young people’s eyes, and it is stocked in shelves next to drinks like Coca Cola,” Collins said.
*Here’s the new commercial for Rihanna’s debut fragrance, Reb’l Fleur.
The singer is seen basking in a huge flower comprised of feathers before passing through a mirror that allows her to discover her “reb’l” side—complete with a black dress, several hands covering her eyes and, of course, a provocatively placed perfume bottle.
