An elderly couple sits on a bench overlooking a snowy park. The woman looks up at her partner, lovingly, and he returns the glance with a grin. The piano music swells, and they go back to observing the park. This is, of course, an ad for porn.

You know when you watch a beer commercial or an ad about fruit or anything relating food and think, man, that looks absolutely delicious? And then when you go to the market to get that same exact food, it looks absolutely nothing like the commercial. It happens every time! How do ad men make the products look so good? With awesome slow motion apparently.
When Charlie bit his brother's finger in 2007, the entire internet fell in love. It's one of the most popular YouTube videos ever at nearly 500 million views and those adorable little boys could do no wrong. Until, well now. Five years later it looks like the family has teamed up with Ragu to slang tomato sauce using the old viral video. What?
Some of us would probably prefer for all of Apple's Siri ads to feature Zooey Deschanel asking inane questions. But Zooey/Siri jokes are getting a little tired — and the Samuel L. Jackson ones never caught on. Luckily, two new Siri spots aired this evening, both featuring the inimitable John Malkovich.
Here's how you know your phone's camera is powerful. If it has 41 freaking megapixels. Here's how you know to trust your powerful cameraphone. If it's used to make a commercial about itself.
You guys know Brian Barrett, he's a Senior Editor on the US edition of Gizmodo. GIFs made from his commercial appearances make the rounds in our internal chats all the time, so we thought we thought we'd let you guys in on the fun. So please, sit back, and bask in his boyish charm.
It's about .co domain names! It has girls in it! Danica Patrick! Jillian Michaels! Bodypaint! And... it predictably teases you into going to GoDaddy's website to "see more". Oh yeah, and it predictably sucks.
Crushing glowsticks for their oozy neon contents and spraying it all over the place in a room filled with paint and loud music sounds like a wonderful way to conclude a drug bender. It's also a super yogurt commercial!
Keith Olwell and Elizabeth Kiehner had an epiphany last year. At a TED talk, the two New York advertising executives learned that captive monkeys understand money, and that when faced with economic games they will behave in similar ways to humans. So if they can cope with money, how would they respond to advertising?
We're hardly the target audience for a pink phone and Lady Gaga-esque visuals, but Nokia's latest commercial does make me laugh. Or weep, when I remember that Nokia's stock prices are at a 13-year low.
It's long been established that the mighty brain is nothing but a mound of putty. We don't see what we think we do, we don't remember what we think we do, and we don't like what we think we do. If we did, advertisers would be out of business. As it is, they're literally putting false thoughts inside our heads.
While this is one of those ads that leaves you scratching your head and wondering what exactly it is they're advertising (I think handwash?
