Why does this campaign bug me so much?

Here are some perfectly fine ads for a well-made product that fills a valid consumer need.

Guess I'm feeling discouraged that we still live in such a disposable society despite all the talk about sustainability.
Or maybe I just need a cup of coffee.

What happens when they come to collect?

I like the steampunk/terminator feel of the organs in these ads.

The film also has a microsite with a realistic catalog and ads for additional parts. (Don’t miss the “Two for one kidneys sponsored by Jack Cola” banner.) Creativity Online also has a few other “viral” treats promoting the film.

What did I think of the big game?

I had a great time, thanks to my refusal to spoil the fun with the pre-Super Bowl ad hype. This year, I decided to just enjoy the party. (Although I couldn't resist tweeting a bit.) So I'm not analyzing or ranking the commercials either. But I will say that my favorite was this Kia spot.

Ok, now I'm gonna spend the rest of the day reading what everyone else thought.

Am I stupid for pointing this out?

I hadn’t seen this particular "Be Stupid" ad when I first posted Diesel's new campaign.

I’ve since seen it (and several more) executions in a few places online.
But this morning, when I saw the ad physically in person for the first time, something jumped out at me.

I keep loving this campaign more and more, but I’m amazed no one has thrown a fit about this shot yet.

Is your breakfast sophisticated enough?

I had never heard of DeLonghi, but these ads leave me with the impression that they make some fine appliances.
