  1. These Australian Tampon Commercials Are Weird As Hell, And I Vagging Love Them

    "Your Vagesty."

    How much am I loving our cultural Renaissance of period commercials? Very, very much. Especially when it gives us this (panty)line of ads from Carefree, which technically has as its aim dispelling common period-related myths. In actuality, I'm just glad they brought the names "Fanny Glitterwinkle," "Harmony Freebush," and "Stefan Van Der Blöed" into our lives.

  2. HelloFlo Returns With Another Spot-On Commercial For Menstrual Products

    "Do you know how hard it is to find a uterus piñata?"

    HelloFlo already declared themselves the refreshing antithesis to your average tampon commercial—blue fluid, always blue fluid—with their Camp Gyno ad from last year. Now they've done it again with "First Moon Party," a commercial for their period starter kit that doubles as a how-to guide for throwing your very own menstruation-themed party. I already did that for my birthday last year, but the rest of you could use the tips.

  3. Bizarre Evian Commercial Has Spider-Man Dancing With Baby Spider-Man?

    Wait... does Evian turn you into a baby? What's happening?

    If you've ever wanted to see regular-sized Spider-Man dance with a baby Spider-Man then Evian's got just the commercial for you! I won't say this isn't cute, but it's also completely bananas.

  4. Mystique Wants You To Know That Cheeseburgers Aren’t For Ladies In Bizarre Hardee’s Ad [VIDEO]

    As far as Jennifer Lawrence-related tie-ins go, this Carl's Jr./Hardee's commercial is about ten times worse than that time Subway created a special sandwich for Catching Fire, that movie about starving kids. (The video has been taken down; I guess Subway got embarrassed.) The Subway commercial was mostly just insensitive and weird. This commercial, in which a (non-Lawrence or Rebecca Romjin) Mystique has to transform into a dude before she can eat a Thickburger, manages to be insensitive, weird, and actively offensive. Also making the rounds: A commercial that implies the reason sexist, catcalling construction workers are sexist catcallers is that they haven't eaten their daily Snickers. You can find that one behind the cut.

  5. Do You Want to See a Woman In a Pretty Pink Dress and Heels Break Tiles With Her Head? I Thought So.

    Pretty Pretty Princess

    The woman in question is Japanese actress Rina Takeda, who has a black belt in karate. Those roofing tiles never stood a chance. Behind the cut you'll find a making-of video, and while I'd normally scoff at the idea of a credit card commercial, or any commercial, getting one of those, this time it's understandable. You won't understand any of what's being said if you don't speak Japanese, but skipping to 1:50 will give you two more angles on Takeda's tile breakage. It's the universal language.

  6. Car Insurance Commercial Remade With LEGO Proves Everything Is Better When Remade With LEGO

    Why isn't everything in my life made of LEGO?

    We get a lot of emails that are obvious ploys by companies to try to fool us into posting a commercial for them under the guise of it being interesting content. Well guess what, Confused.com: sometimes it works. They remade the above boring insurance commercial with LEGO and now we love them and their little robot Brian.

  8. Woman Uses GoDaddy Super Bowl Commercial To Quit Her Engineering Job And Do Puppetry Full Time

    Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

    Full disclosure: I didn't watch the Super Bowl. That being said, I am doing a bit of catching up on the commercials to spin out of it. You might be familiar with web hosting company GoDaddy's usual approach to marketing. Turns out, they decided to go in a different direction this year. And it's surprisingly positive.

  9. Here’s How to Watch Today’s Super Bowl Commercials Without Watching the Dumb Super Bowl

    Football is the worst kind of ball.

    You may have noticed a common thread in today's Geekosystem posts. That thread, of course, is that football is boring. That's because it is. Commercials that air during the Super Bowl tend to be pretty good, and for years we've had to suffer through football to see them. No more. Here's how to watch just the commercials.
