Thanks for making me click on a url with "boob" in it at work.

And yes, I was forced to do it. No choice.

This is what is called in the industry: "target marketing."

I like watching commercials from other countries because it shows that if you have an interesting ad it can bridge cultures. I thought all of them were done in an interesting way...some were more clever or more subtle than others.

But only the one for Fox Movies with the reference to reading subtitles made me laugh out loud. The rest were good because they had boobs.

I would think that women would be the main purchasers and choosers of orange juice not adolescent boys.

I loved the Fiat ad. Also the Fox Movies ad.

Also, I'd love to know what the one with the black bar and dots is advertising and what the copy says.

Something like "If the guy who invented the censorship stripe drank Skol beer it would be like this"

I don't even like Orange Juice and after that commercial I was prepared to go out and buy some. They have the best bits, you see! I would be happy to support them.

Are you sure you meant "best bits" here?

This reminds me of one of the few scenes I remember from Family Ties:

Mallory: Here's some juice, Jeff. I squeezed the oranges myself.
Alex: You know what? That is a very nice thing to do for someone, Mallory. I'm sure he appreciates it.
Jeff: Yeah, I really do. May I squeeze something for you?
