In recent weeks, we’ve learned that pop star Mariah Carey has partnered with companies to appear in ad campaigns for the Game Of War video game and the Match.com online dating service. Today, thankfully, we learn that Mimi has partnered with a company for a new collaboration that makes a lot more sense brand-wise and will likely do very well come the holiday shopping season. Mariah Carey has teamed up with MAC Cosmetics for a Beauty Icon Collection launching later this year that will include items like a shimmery champagne-colored lipstick called All I Want … which is a BRILLIANT name for a lipstick, by the way. Click below to learn more about Mimi‘s collab with MAC, see what the All I Want shade of lipstick looks like and get ready to update your Xmas shopping list. More »
Well, well, well. I was wondering when we were going to get our official first pic of Travi$ Scott and Rihanna boo’d up on Instagram together, and it’s happened… sort of… in the form of a Puma ad for Rihanna‘s new Fenty line. Last week we learned from sources that the pair was officially official, and this week I’ve seen enough to fully believe it for myself. Between the ad, and a recent interview Travi$ gave on ESPN, this looks pretty trill to me. Click inside for more!
Pop chanteuse Mariah Carey has replaced Kate Upton as the celebrity spokesmodel for the Game of War video game and as you can see in her first video promo for the game, Mimi is truly the hero to count on. This clever (if poorly computer animated) video features a sample of Mariah‘s song Hero and then, briefly, MC herself appears in the clip to save the day. Mariah‘s appearance looks odd to me because it looks like her head was digitally added to another person’s body (watch closely when she runs at the end of the clip). But even tho this commercial is pretty terrible, I love it entirely. Have a look below and love. More »
That bad feeling you get looking at Dior ad campaign photos where you’re trying to figure out how you can maybe buy some new clothes, also because the kids got all those supercool back-to-school clothes and you felt left out because you need new clothes. So yeah. Rihanna took to Instagram to share a slew of photo from her Dior shoot and ermagaaaadddd she’s friggen flawless. Click inside for more!
Last week we got to see the first photos and first video from Banksy‘s ambitious new art exhibit/installation Dismaland Bemusement Park currently on display in the UK and today we get to see a just-released “commercial” for the dystopian theme park. Banksy himself has put together an official “promo video” for Dismaland that is embedded above. The narrative is pretty dismally straightforward and the accompanying music is disturbingly saccharine, perfect for this promo video of the theme park art exhibit. Have a look and see, once again, why Dismaland is the Crappiest Place on Earth.
Fast food giant Burger King took out a full page ad in The New York Times and the Chicago Tribune today in an effort to solicit fast food GOD McDonald’s with a proposal that the two companies join forces to create a joint burger called the McWhopper in honor of Peace One Day. In what would absolutely constitute a major advertising coup for Burger King, the proposal suggests that the two companies collaborate on a special burger that would bring the fast food rivals together in “peace” … and commerce. Burger King‘s thirst for this proposal is so huge that they even offered up mock packaging for the McWhopper. Unfortunately for BK, McDonald’s isn’t at all interested in this proposal. The CEO of McD’s posted a response to BK on their official Facebook profile that basically says Thaaaaaaanks … but no thanks, don’t bother us publicly in this manner, go away, bye. Click below to see this back and forth exchange between these two fast food companies and learn more about the McWhopper — which will never come to be. More »
First David Beckham did it, then Cristiano Ronaldo … more recently, Justin Bieber and Calvin Harris did it … today we learn that tennis champion Rafael Nadal has become the latest celeb to become an underwear spokesmodel. Nadal is the new “face” of Tommy Hilfiger Underwear and today, we get our first look at his first promo video for the brand. As you can see above, Rafa uses all of his assets to promote the sale of Tommy Hilfiger Underwear … and he does so quite well, if I do say so myself. There is a lot of teasing going on in this video so, it might be wise to take care when you watch this video … but trust me, it’s a clip you’re gonna wanna see. Rafael Nadal is the newest underwear spoksemodel on the block, y’all … do we approve?
Remember back in February when superstar DJ Calvin Harris was revealed as the new celebrity spokesmodel for Emporio Armani and those super HAWT photos of the man and his bulge squeezed into Armani Underwear were released? Well, I have some good news for you. Armani has released a new batch of promo photos that feature Calvin Harris modeling the offerings from their Fall/Winter 2015-2016 collections … including the new line of Armani Underwear (see above). Curiously, the new collection of Armani Underwear doesn’t look dissimilar from previous collections of Armani Underwear — and it doesn’t matter in the slightest :D Calvin models other pieces of Armani clothing and accessories in the promo photos featured below so if you’d like see more of Calvin wearing Emporio Armani Underwear etc., you might want to take a gander.
