The Six Sexiest Moments in Recent Advertising History


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.

This Deal Make Doesn’t Have Time for Hot Chicks

This ad is less sexy and more silly but it’s too funny not to share. With its racy content and prolific use of curse words, this SNL knock off video, called Deal Maker, from private equity software maker Deal Market may not be on YouTube for long so watch it now. Because it’s funny. Really funny. Using the bust-into-a-rap-concept, Deal Market presents us with Mr. Deal Maker who decides to skip out on his date in favor of closing a deal at 3am. Which is probably a good thing because the date looks like it’d be really boring. The rap is far more amusing.

Keira Knightley Gives Photographer Blue Balls

Back in March on Adrants, I mentioned that Keira Knightley would be reprising her role for Coco Mademoiselle in a new film from the brand. That film debuted last week. It’s a very stylized piece which follows Knightley from her bed to a photo shoot.

Of course the whole thing devolves into the stereotypical tease-fest between photographer and model until they’re making love to each other without actually touching. As things progress, a door gets locked and even more love making is expected. But sadly for the photographer, that doesn’t seem to be in the cards.

Sex Trafficking Isn’t Sexy

do you want me

Calling attention to a certain form of tourism in that the Ukraine isn’t all too pleased is popular within its borders, non-profit group Femen has launched Do You Want Me, a website on which visitors can dig into the seedy side of the country’s sex trade.

The site aims to call attention to the notion that paying for sex creates a form of slavery. Similar efforts to fight the proliferation of the sex trade have been done by Amnesty International here, here and here, by Stop the Traffik in London, by The Salvation Army in South Africa and by the Helen Bamber Foundation.

You Wish Your Girlfriend Had Boobs Like These

So you’re sitting on a park bench texting the girl you just picked up last night and some hot chick in workout clothing decides to give you “the look” and then do a few stretches right in front of you. At that point, you’re thankful to the Gods of Chance and figure your day has been made. But the fun isn’t over yet. The hottie decides to switch the song that she’s listening to to one that’s akin to a song you might hear in a night club – full of bass and deep enough to make things shake. And that’s when you get the full on boobalicious pay off. Oh and not that you care, it’s an ad for earbuds.

Tehmeena Afzal Doesn’t Have to Sell Anything For Us to Want to Look

Technically, we’re supposed to write about sexy ads in this column. Well, this is just too sexy to let some technicality prevent you from seeing more of Tehmeena Afzal’s smoking hotness. Last week she traveled to Aruba for a shoot with photographer Jason Margarita. Stuff your girlfriend in the closet for a while, get comfortable and enjoy Tehmeena’s deliciousness.

Apart From Playboy, Advertising Has the Hottest Parties


In the advertising world, we have these things called conferences that we go to to learn stuff that, ideally, is supposed to make us smarter at what we do. But that part of a conference is a snoozefest. A bore. The real fun happens at night when all the brands with big budgets blow their wads on big parties with free booze and fancy dancers. Just last night, we attended one of these fine events and we’re going to share all the eye candy with you. Check out all the sexy photos right here. Don’t you wish you worked in advertising?
