Diesel’s 10-year anniversary not-porn SFW XXX viral

This is a stone cold internet meme that will hardly be new to seasoned media nodes, but it bears repeating for just how superbly conceived and executed it is.

Not many things make me laugh out loud, but the mouth organ, accordion, corn-on-the-cob and Skittles bits here do.

I expect at some point this vid would have hit a brick wall at some point in most companies – even in the more edgy ones there’s probably someone high up baulking at a video like this that, let’s face it, references and virtually shows a lot of hard-core shenanigans. It takes a brave outfit to slap your name all over it.

So, well done to Diesel. No doubt that twonk Alex Zane will make making a shit joke about on Channel 4 very soon.

NB. While Diesel branded this ‘safe for work’ it is by no stretch of the imagination safe for the majority of workplace PCs.

Are These The Sexiest Adverts?

Anorak has a gallery on what it calls the sexiest adverts, a roll call of the usual titties-and-bums indulgence from people like Diesel, Calvin Klein and Durex.

I find them vaguely dull, sexist, unimaginative and almost wholly unerotic, consisting mainly of an idea of eroticism and sexuality conceived by a jaded, coke-snorting, homosexual fashion maven living in a loft in Manhattan.

It’s all oiled-up limbs, hardbodies, Lolita-esque vulgarity, with nary an original thought in the 50-odd images that make up the gallery.

Few of them are actively shit, just a bit tiresome. But the example below is in a different league. It’s quite horrible, and a truly bizarre way to advertise something great.

So, there you go. That’s what people in advertising think about sex. Pfft. Give me Nanette Newman any day.
