(NSFW: Language) Matthew Frost directed this clever ad for the French fashion magazine Jalouse. It takes us inside of the boardroom viral marketing video pitch. Let’s hope the kids really like it.

Volkswagen: Dog Strikes Back

Volkswagen: Dog Strikes Back

We’re not sure if dogs, weight loss, James Brown, Star Wars and Volkswagen make any sense together either. You be the judge of the extended cut of VW’s pot-luck of a Super Bowl commercial.

Kinect Star Wars: Duel

Kinect Star Wars: Duel

It can’t be good that this teaser tells us nothing of what to expect from the game, but it still had us laughing at its wannabe Obi-Wan dude. We really just want that limited-edition Xbox 360 anyhow.

There are lots of fun pop culture references in the latest ad for the Nike+ FuelBand, a wearable watch that tracks steps, calories and how active you’ve been, including everyday activities.

Vinnie Jones: Hard and Fast

Vinnie Jones: Hard and Fast

You can call him Susan if it makes you happy, but don’t you dare let Vinnie Jones know that you can’t do CPR. A great ad from the British Heart Foundation promoting hands-only CPR.

Shake On It (Ad)

A Bag’s Eye View

A Bag’s Eye View

Take a flight from the point of view of your bag. They left out the part where the baggage handlers toss your luggage and rifle through it for goodies. What do you expect from an ad shot for Delta?

Russian Burger King

Russian Burger King

Just when we thought Korea had the weirdest commercials for the BK Lounge, Russia has to try and outdo them with sheer excess. Though the in-store tattoos might not pass health code.

The Beauty of One Second

The Beauty of One Second

An assemblage of one second clips, capturing the wonders of the world and life in general. Part of a short-film competition to promote Montblanc’s chronographs. We love it when advertising is art.

Last Dictator Standing

Last Dictator Standing

Chicken x politics: Dean Blumberg’s ad for South African restaurant chain Nando’s parodies the remaining dictators left in the world; it entertains and leaves you thinking too. (Thanks Ange!)

Specsavers Ad

Is that a carrot in the sauna, or do you just need glasses? This jocular ad for UK optical company Specsavers features Gordon Ramsay and a bumbling gent who could really use an eye exam.

Fiat 500 Abarth: Seduction

Fiat 500 Abarth: Seduction

This somewhat racy but rather amusing ad from Fiat showcases their new 500 Abarth, which is apparently so seductive you may lose track of your wits. Don’t say we didn’t warn you. (Thanks Nick!)

ASICS Marathon Ad

ASICS Marathon Ad

ASICS installed a video wall in the Columbus Circle subway station and challenged passersby to race against top U.S. marathoner Ryan Hall for just 60 feet. What do you think happened? (Thanks Juan!)

Go Beyond the Cover

Go Beyond the Cover

We knew there was makeup strong enough to cover up tattoos; this cool vid shows us that it’s Dermablend, and what Zombie Boy (aka Rick Genest) looks like without his ink. (Thanks Mario!)

Müller: Wünderful Stuff

Müller: Wünderful Stuff

Yet another commercial filled with seemingly random, yet awesome stuff – this time ranging from K.I.T.T. to Mr. Men to Muttley, to an army of unicorns all coming together to sell us… yogurt?
