Renault Reveals Saucy Secrets In These Ads From Italy

One advantage European ads have over their United States counterparts is that since European society is much less prude, their commercials tend to push the envelope more than the ones we have in America. Sure, our ads are often suggestive, but something as blatant as this hilarious Italian campaign for car company Renault would never fly. In them, sexy surprises are progressively revealed as different pairs are driving in crucial situations. A different safety feature of the Renault Scenic is featured with each reveal, as they’re the types that would take your attention off the road. The featured song is “Stuck in the Middle with You” by Stealers Wheel, which fits but is pretty overused in pop culture. They’re quite amusing ads, created by Publicis Italy in Milan.

Get The Office Kleptos Meal At McDonald’s!

McDonald’s is revamping its Dollar Menu once again with the “$1 $2 $3 Menu.” In this new campaign, men in unfortunate circumstances come to McDonald’s to put together a cheap meal. There’s the “my office is full of kleptos meal”, purchased by Paul, who’s had his work lunch pilfered. The “we haven’t been to the grocery store in weeks meal” is bought by a man who passes out after sniffing his long-expired milk (his roommate has done the same). And the “save the tailgate meal” for football fans who lost their grill after making a sudden turn. So even when life goes wrong, you can sadly eat McDonald’s. Yeah!

IHOP: These Pilots Are Into Pancakes

All You Can Eat Pancakes are back at IHOP. I’ve done it before and noticed that the more pancakes you want, the slower they are to actually serve you. Maybe to make you impatient and get you out the door…but I digress. Anyway, IHOP’s new spot from Droga5 features pilots and pancakes. The words pancake/pancakes are repeated 13 times in the 30 second ad, so IHOP really wants you to remember about $3.99 All You Can Eat Pancakes.

Applebee’s Has All You Can Eat Riblets And Tenders

You’ve definitely heard “O Fortuna”, even if you didn’t know what it was called. It’s pretty much a pop culture cliche at this point. And now Applebee’s is in on the act…getting ridiculously overdramatic to promote all you can eat riblets and tenders in this spot.

Allstate’s Mayhem Turns Good As A New Year’s Resolution

For years, Allstate’s Mayhem has been living up to his name and well…causing mayhem. But this year, Mayhem has made the resolution to be helpful. We see Mayhem as things that help keep you safe, like a road flare, a lightning rod, a home security system, and the tennis ball dangling from a screen in the garage. But with the ominous “resolutions are made to be broken” message at the end, will Mayhem’s change be for good? By the way, Mayhem is played by Dean Winters.

1/16 update: Yup, those resolutions were broken in a week.

Taco Bell’s $1 Belluminati

Taco Bell’s got a new and improved dollar menu and in these spots, they show a mysterious secret society behind the power of the dollar. That secret society is called The Belluminati. Ugh.

Intuit QuickBooks Goes “Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger”

An a cappella version of Daft Punk’s “Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger” seems like an odd choice for an Intuit QuickBooks ad. But when combined with images of work, it actually makes for a compelling commercial. The cover is sung by 13-year-old Willa Amai.
