Sex Sells #48

It may surprise you that so far in the SEX SELLS series, we have yet to feature any kind of commercial advertising for condoms. Well, Trojan Condoms have an interesting way of making their product memorable. Both scenarios in these two commercials have a slightly surprising twist – I don’t want to drop any spoilers […]

Perhaps I am slightly biased, but I so much prefer seeing a sexy man stripping off compared to a sexy woman. Levi’s have produced some of the sexiest commercials ever seen – and they always do it with a little humour. Fun and sexiness seem to work very well. I think Levi’s 501 are right […]

Considering that their products are perhaps mainly consumed at children, Cadburys have a surprising number of sexy commercials. One of my own favourite is a very alluring rabbit used to advertise Cadbury’s Caramel. This sexy rabbit was such a hit that there is a large collection of bunny commercials all with that voice that makes […]

Carl’s Jr have missed the point again with this commercial. It is just cheap on every level. I love it when companies get sexy advertising right, but I think Carl’s Jr are living in an alternative reality. Guys – come on! A hottie getting off to a burger is not the way to go. Just […]

I am sure the secret to this commercial is the music. Who would have thought that sharing your gum with someone could be so incredibly erotic? Wrigley’s did a great job with this advert and it was memorable. This is one of those adverts from childhood and it taught me a lot about flirting. I […]

It’s about time the classic Nescafe Gold Blend series of commercials had a mention. This is another example of classic advertising, with an understated sexy theme going on. The couple really fall for each other over coffee, and this compilation of adverts has it all – flirting, chat-up lines, suppressed desires, misunderstandings, confessions, and more. […]

Doritos have another stab at sexy. The last Doritos commercial I saw with a sexy theme did not impress. But this one I do like a lot more. Apart from the terrible music, it made me smile. From the start I was distracted by the figure in the background. I thought it was Dad in […]

Here we find another advertiser resorting to blatant innuendo. But I will be honest, I don’t mind. So many commercials for household products are tediously boring. I can enioy the cheesy Liquid-Plumr adverts I have seen. In this case – it is not over the top – it’s more about making the most mundane daily […]

Sex Sells #40

Last week I featured probably one of the most overt commercials I have found, which was memorable really for all the wrong reasons. I think Cadbury’s could teach Carl’s Jn about how to create a sexy marketing campaign. There is no innuendo in their Milk Tray adverts and no provocative flaunting. Oh no, but this […]

Boddingtons have been one of our favourite producers of sexy commercials. They have truly knocked it out of the ballpark so many times. They often employ a very sexy brunette who transpires to be more interested in her the ale than she is in her men. Although we have seen much more memorable Boddington’s adverts, […]
