(nsfw) Scantily-Clad Lesbians And Ejaculating Man-Tree Utilized To Sell Fruit Drink.

Mac's is a Canadian convenience store chain. WTF is the name of one of their fruit drinks. Another is called Bloody Zit. Last Spring, the chain apparently did an in-store poster for WTF featuring a nun and a goat that they very quickly pulled. Previously in strange sexist spots for beverages: blow-up doll wife helps sell Czech herbal spirit.

Go to You Tube and look up more "Mac's WTF" commercials - there's a whole slew of them. The English campaign is completely different from the French, which is gross but relevant (Mac's in Quebec is called Couche Tard - you can look those up too, to compare).

This "WTF" stuff is just a creative circle jerk - a bunch of creatives with ample budget trying to get noticed and win awards. I don't care how "shocking" these web ads are - they have nothing to do with the product and everything to do with making noise about the commercials themselves, instead of the thing they're trying to sell.

This has been a hot topic around the office for months - guess I'm still riled about it!

Still reeling over the spot where a fried chicken-eating fat guy with a garden hose for a leg fills up some kid's cup with juice from said leg. And the one with the robot humping a pummel horse for 20awkward seconds. Christ, I had nightmares from that one.

Didn't you pop a few corpusles a few days ago when someone sent you an old tip? This is at least six months old.

I knew that, but I found this one myself, and that other tip was for a jingle contest which happened at a specific moment in time——last year's Super Bowl! Online videos live for months. And this one is just plain stupid-weird.

I'm going to use this commercial for a media analysis project due in one of my college courses. Should be interesting.
