J*** in My Pants: Philips 56-inch Ultra-Widescreen Cinema TV

Philips's new 56-inch LCD, displayed at CES this year, plays in 21:9 aspect ratio and lets you enjoy movies as you would in the theater. No more borders on the top and bottom! However, delicious aroma of double butter popcorn not included.

Note that regular TV, HDTV, or the large number of films that aren't filmed in 2.40:1 may look wacky. This is ideal for your home theater reserved for big-budget blockbusters. Call me!

I'm filing this under super cool. So the guys at Sony weren't clever enough to make this up but at least we can all enjoy it for what it is. I love it when they take a pretty simple concept and marry it with the outside surroundings. Throw in a little fantasy or absurdity and you have a kick-ass campaign. Too bad it's fake. Someone call the Sony guys and tell them to hire… Continue

How Sony Ericsson's 8.1 Megapixel Camera Will Make Boobies Even Better: FHM December Ad

Gotta give it to Sony Ericsson for showing us that sex sells. Are we amazed that this ad campaign was shot solely on your new C905 8.1 megapixel camera? Not that much. We know there was probably a lot of air brushing, perfect lighting, etc. What it does go to show is that a well targeted ad with an interesting spin can gather some nice attention. Oh yes and beautiful boobies… Continue
