Mrs. Mac’s crusty top meat pie: TV ad pisses off some viewers

Politically incorrect? Yes. Funny? Yes.

Apparently some viewers find the ad offensive. Not me.

I love that twist ending.

The song is “If It Don’t fit (Don’t Force It)” by Barrel House Annie. The ad is from Australian agency Marketforce.

English occultist Aleister Crowley wasn’t merely a poet, painter and the Great Beast 666, he was also an aspiring chef! That’s right and if you’d like to make some magick in the kitchen tonight, The Master Therion’s recipe for his “famous” (or would that be “infamous”) curried rice dish, “Riz Aleister Crowley” has been posted on the Music is the Heart Tumblr blog, after being found among his papers at Syracuse University in New York.

Bon appetit! (Larger page 1 here, page 2 here)

Hamburgers = Heroin!

A commercial made to raise awareness in a current social epidemic and to draw attention to those whom the artists believe are most responsible in a bid to drive discussion and action to reverse the downward trend.

A short and sweet film by The Selby about some urban hipsters and surfers opening a taco stand and juice bar in the aging community of Rockaway Beach, Queens. I used to go surfing at this very spot.

Scandalous ice cream ad depicts pregnant nun and two priests gettin’ jiggy wit it

As expected, folks are pissed by the new ads from Antonio Federici, the world’s most blasphemous ice cream. From Campaign Live:

One ad created in-house shows a pregnant nun eating from a pot of Antonio Federici Gelato Italiano under the strapline “Immaculately conceived”.

Another ad shows two male priests apparently about to kiss, with the strapline “We believe in salvation”.

The print ads appeared in women’s weeklies Grazia, Look and The Lady, but were investigated by the advertising watchdog after it received a number of complaints about them.

Antonio Federici said the idea of “conception” represented the development of their ice cream, and its decision to use religious imagery stemmed from its strong feelings towards their product – the text also read “Ice cream is our religion”.

The Lady later said it regretted the offence that had been caused to its readers and said it would not publish the ad or anything similar to it in future.

The ASA told Antonio Federici that is was not to repeat the ads in their current form, as it was likely to be seen as distortion and mockery of the beliefs of Roman Catholics.

Italian ice-cream ad banned by ASA for religious mockery

Chouthi Bai from a village in Rajasthan breastfeeds a three day old calf whose mother recently died. Bai feeds the calf 3 or 4 times a day. “The gods will be pleased if I raise her.”

What an extraordinary way to acquire good karma.

I just randomly stumbled upon and decided to share this late 60’s Japanese chocolate commercial featuring The Walker Brothers. So funny to see Scott Walker, eternally brooding quasi-operatic divo, happily hawking the chocolate here.
 

 
This of course made me want to hear The Sun Ain’t Gonna Shine Anymore because it’s such a hauntingly beautiful song.
 
Hear/see that and more Walker Brothers after the jump…
