Naked_Girls_Take_Over_Boardroom_-_YouTube.jpg

Given the continuously sex-addled mind of the human male, you wouldn't think a strip club would have to advertise at all. Yet they do. Apparently even horny men need motivation from time to time.

One such strip club -- yes, the prefer to be called a gentleman's club -- Spearmint Rhino has decided its time to do an online ad. Well, a YouTube video that's an ad actually.

The ad places Spearmint Rhino strippers -- or actresses that play strippers -- inside an office setting with all the usual antics and shenanigans. Complete with charts that -- haha, we get the joke -- scream "Customer smiles on the rise" and a break room that's, well, a strip club, the semi-NSFW ad goes all out like an old school GoDaddy ad on Viagra.

Victoria's Secret's 'Body' Bra Line Comes In Many Sizes But You'd Never Know It From This 'Perfect Body' Ad Campaign

vic_sec_perf_bod.jpg

Pity the poor woman who doesn't live up to Victoria Secret's definition of perfection which probably hovers somewhere around 5'8", 34C-22-34. If you don't come close to those measurements, it appears you should should shop elsewhere.

A new campaign for the brand is touting a line of bras they call Body by Victoria. The ads carry the headline, "The Perfect Body," along with images of, well, women with "perfect" bodies.

Certainly there's an aspect of every advertising campaign which aims to be aspirational, motivational, uplifting in a way that, ideally, cause a person to respond, "I want to be like that. I want to be better. I'll have what she's having. I want to be better. Etc." And a nice motivational kick in the ass is a good thing every once in a while.

If You Thought Your Wet Dreams Were Weird, Wait Until You See This One!

Feuchter_Traum__Wet_dream__-_YouTube.jpg

This nugget is spec work. And we can see why. It's so off-the-wall weird that you can't even wrap your head around it to realize it just might be an ad for for some bank.

Entitled Wet Dream, is a visual onslaught of the sorts of things some people, but not most, might see in the middle of a proverbial wet dream.

To each his own is, we guess, the mantra here. Everyone's wet dream isn't necessarily going to be filed with women in bikinis with huge boobs or guys is Speedos with ripped abs.

What Can Social Media Marketers and Brand Managers Stand to Gain from Employee Advocacy?

employeeadvocacy.jpg

Social media marketers and brand managers alike have the same problem: how can they make their brand's story stand out in today's noisy, always-on, social world? Let's face it, not every ad campaign goes viral and -- even more -- not every social media post reaches the target audience. But this can change. What has lately been lauded by marketers as an unsolvable problem, actually has a relatively simple solution: employee advocacy.

Social media doesn't exist in a vacuum, so why are so many social media marketers expected to perform in a vacuum? Rather than limit their social media presence to just a few social media channels, many Fortune 1000 brands are empowering their employees to advocate for them -- in their own, original voice -- on social media.
