Happy Halloween.

Good morning: for the third straight All Hallow's Eve, I present the Human Dickwad (click image). Your costume sucks the balls on his chin, in comparison. Also, here's the best Halloween-themed ad I've seen since I started this site. No, I'm not going to the NYC parade; I went once years ago, and that was enough. I'll be drinking vodka and shooting some bar pool with my girlfriend while wearing a black and orange leather Jughead hat.

copyranter on COILHOUSE: Kiwi Kleen toilet cleaner.

These are three of the most senseless print ads I've ever seen. And so, therefore, perfect for the seventh Weekly Ad Uncoiling. (link)

In Virginia: Republicans vote Nov. 4th, Democrats Nov. 5th.

At least, according to this official-looking (though typo-filled) flier being posted around Richmond. Expect to see the flashing siren atop Drudge any minute now drawing attention to this story. (Virginian Pilot, via)

Only 31 years left...

copyranter on ANIMAL NY: Delta insults slobby LIRR commuters.

Delta, with its presumptuous Change Is: campaign, tries to get all servicey, in lieu of actually improving service. (link)

The guys in Death Cab For Cutie are boring.

In case you were wondering.

copyranter on ANIMAL NY: Palin, Palin, Palin...

...she's been everywhere. On SNL. Mocked by street artists. And of course in a new Manhattan Mini-Storage ad. (link)

everybody suck your own d*ck this weekend...

...or you if can't suck your own dick, due to either physical or biological reasons, then figuratively suck your own dick. Have some selfish fun. See you Monday. (image via)

copyranter on COILHOUSE: Black & Decker lawnmowers.

On Coilhouse, it's all about the Strange. First, it was strange hand soap ads. Then, strange travel iron ads. Today, it's the guaranteed strangest—and sickest—lawnmower ads you've ever seen. (link)

copyranter on ANIMAL NY: To stop Global Warming, we must stop Illegal Immigration.

At least, that's what Californians for Immigration Stabilization are saying in this amazing :30 TV ad. (link)

New Art Auction Record Set.

copyranter on ANIMAL NY: Australian anti-graffiti advertising.

Graffiti just became a more serious offense down under. And public transportation advertising just became more intrusive there, also. Which is worse visual pollution? (link)

Have you ever had a canoe stuck in your ass? (link)

copyranter on ANIMAL NY: WorkSafe Victoria.

If you can't get actual, gruesomely injured blue-collar workers for your work safety ad campaign, well then you just magically make 'em the fuck up. (link)

Dead Presidents.

Another sullying of Mt. Rushmore. People just can't leave that inviting space between Teddy and Abe alone.

copyranter on ANIMAL NY: Ed McMahon raps...

...for (not) Is this what our country has come to? This will be the last thing the big guy is remembered for. That is sad. (link)

copyranter on COILHOUSE: so you walk into a Mexican restaurant...

copyranter on ANIMAL NY: Delta's Intrusive Advertecture.

(From now on, I'll be linking to every post I write for AnimalNY and Coilhouse and elsewhere here on copyranter) NYC "advertecture" is out of control. This is the evilest example yet. (link)

The Viagra Missile.

A crazy little blue pill-popping man keeps driving this "Viva Viagra" missile through NYC's various tunnels and the cops have not once inspected the fucking thing. Are you watching terrorists? Design your next attack as an ad stunt and you'll be able to blow-up whatever the fuck you want. Plus, stupid Pfizer is suing the goofball. What idiots. They should be calling cash-strapped NASA to sponsor every one of their future rocket launches. (link, via)
