In our continuing effort to bring you the sexiest of sexy, The Smoking Jacket has launched a new feature, The Week in Sexy Advertising. It’s written by Steve Hall who publishes Adrants, a site that writes about marketing, advertising and the use of sex as a selling point. We won’t discuss the business of advertising much because, well, that’s just boring. But we will bring you a weekly round up advertising’s best eye candy.

Kim Kardashian Hooks Up With Skechers to Keep Her Curves


Oh how we miss the beer babes of years past. The only ad in the Super Bowl this year that merits any sort of mention in terms of using sex to sell – and then that’s even a stretch – is the Skechers ad which featured Kim Kardashian. Clad in tight fitting shorts and a midriff bearing top, Kim breaks up with her six packed trainer because, well, her Skechers do a better job keeping her boobs big, her tummy flat and her ass tight.

Paintball Offers 85 Percent off Playtime


With an image of a scantily clad woman wearing a camo print bikini and black leather boots while holding some heavy paintball artillery, the headline, “It’s time to play,” is all double entendre and cuts to the heart of the matter. It is, indeed, time to play. One way or another. Depending, of course, upon how you choose to interpret the ad. And what your definition of play is.

Girls. Guns. Leather boots. A tiny bikini. What’s not to love?

Skirts Always Look Better on a Woman


In Scotland, men dance with skirts. In Trinidad, men dance with women in skirts. That’s the message carried on a billboard campaign for Angostura Rum that, of course, has all the cause groups…and the country of Scotland…up in arms. First off, cause groups claim the ad is degrading to women. If that’s the case, blame the fashion industry. They make the clothes all those supposedly objectified women wear. Second, the country of Scotland wants us to know their skirts are kilts, not skirts and they are an important part of the country’s heritage which should most certainly not be mocked. To that we say, get a sense of humor.

Because PETA Loves Nudity, We Love PETA


We’ve all heard of PETA, right? People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals? If you’re not familiar with their cause, you’re quite likely to be familiar with their advertising because, well, because it’s full of nudity. You see, PETA’s modus operandi is to hire a hot celebrity, photograph her naked, try to get the ad to run somewhere and then ride out the publicity wave after all the media outlets have claimed their ads are too racy.

The ad in question here features Germany’s Next Top Model contestant Hana Nitsche who PETA is using to help get the word out about fur and why it’s really, really bad to wear because, well, cute little animals have to be clubbed and killed to make fur clothing.

Big Breasts Can Make Dining Out A Challenge

Now here’s a classic. This poor busty bimbo who’s babbling on the phone in a restaurant can’t seem to find the chips that are supposed to have accompanied her burger. She tells her friend on the phone to hold on and calls the waitress over to ask her where the chips are. The waitress give the woman a confused look and says, “They’re on your plate” to which the bimbo quips, “No they’re not.”

At this point, the waitress realize she’s dealing with a less intelligent class of human being. Or one that’s gifted in a way that causes her just this sort of trouble on a daily basis. Watch the video to see just how the waitress helps the curvaceous hottie find her chips.

A Valentine’s Day Message From the Victoria’s Secret Angels


What would Valentine’s Day be without a little message from Victoria’s Secret? This video offers up tips for women such as the hard to believe fact even guys love getting flowers, don’t ever wear granny panties, don’t sit at home and cry if you don’t have a date and don’t expect your man to love Valentine’s Day as much as you do.

But none of that psycho-babble crap matters or is interesting in any way to a guy. All we really want to see are hot Victoria’s Secret models wearing lingerie. And that’s what this video gives us.
