The utterly and completely amazing Janelle Monaé has teamed up with Pepsi to record her own unique cover of David Bowie‘s classic song Heroes for use in the cola company’s #FUTBOLNOW campaign. The idea is to celebrate music and futbol (ie. soccer) with an ad campaign that features musicians and global futbol stars. Honestly, I’m not at a all a fan of professional soccer so I’m really only here for Janelle and her inventive take on Bowie‘s song. Click below to hear Janelle Monaé‘s cover of Heroes and see her cameo alongside a few futbol studs in a new commercial for Pepsi. More »

Stew in the new Chanel ad campaign … which hasn’t been officially released just yet.

So, with the big blockbuster movie season nearly upon us, it’s about time that we start to see this year’s batch of commercial movie tie-ins. Thus far, we’ve seen movie tie-ins for cosmetics and kid’s clothing but today we get to see a new commercial for fast food chain Carl’s Jr. When I first learned that Mystique from X-Men would be featured in a Carl’s Jr. commercial for hamburgers, I scoffed at the seemingly terrible idea … and then I saw the commercial and now I love it. Haha. Even tho you probably think that the last thing Mystique would do is appear in a hamburger commercial, check out the video embedded above and you may have a change of heart. Who’s hungry?
Kit Harington, the actor who plays Jon Snow on HBO‘s Game of Thrones, has just been unveiled as the new face of Jimmy Choo Man, a new men’s fragrance due out in September. Citing his masculinity and sense of style, the creative director for Jimmy Choo explains why Harington has been selected as the celebrity spokesmodel for this men’s fragrance. The ad campaign for Jimmy Choo Man, starring Kit, won’t be unveiled until later this year but that should give his GoT fans something to look forward to as 2014 unfolds. More »
Beyoncé is featured in a new ad campaign for Toyota and as you can see, she is heavily featured in the just leaked international TV commercial for the car maker’s Get Going campaign. As you can see in the video embedded above, footage from Bey‘s Mrs. Carter Show World Tour is used for the commercial … which likely means Bey had very little to do for this sponsorship deal other than lend her name and likeness and cash her fat check. Watch the video above and see if Beyoncé can sell you on buying a Toyota.
