Apple Adverts have definitely improved with time

Okay so everyone is talking about the iPhone4 FaceTime commercials and the Matt Damon look-a-like at the moment but by far my favourite adverts are still for actual Macintosh computers.

I still own a G4 Cube and it is beautiful if not especially well powered now. It’s great as an iTunes media share though as it’s pretty enough to have out on display. The commercials though were special if only for the awful song choices…

The other great advert was for the 20th anniversary Mac. It didn’t tell you anything about the processor, RAM or any of that other stuff you might want to know about a PC, no it concentrated on the fact it was the most beautiful thing Apple had ever produced!

Oh and of course let’s not forget Kevin Costner or the college guy in his boxers

Soccer tricks in your undies – Bonds Advert

This curly haired lad is hardly your typical underwear model, yet he’s the star of the latest Australian ad campaign from Bonds- the short. But he’s not one of those chiselled beefcakes we’re used to in undies adverts, in fact he’s a gawky teen but he does have incredible footie skills.

Watch him strip down to his underwear while balancing a soccer ball, even pausing to use his clothes as a skipping rope! More of the latest bonds undies adverts at

Genius Advertising

As anyone who knows me knows I hate advertising. Well okay that’s not entirely true. I hate when advertising ruins the experience or when advertising becomes more imprtant than the content.
Anyway advertising rant over – more to come when I don’t work where I work now.
Anyway AOL Pictures and presumably the rest of the internet are showing the following advert for a new ITV show. It starts with Mike and inviting you to see what else he is wearing…
Then we get to see what he is wearing…
mike 2
And then the prompt for the show…
trinny and susannah
The bit thatmakes me laugh though is that when you see Mike in his pants they look very similar to the ones that American Apparel make and that most of the gay stores in London sell as fashion.

Primark undies

The best line out of this weeks Pop Justice?

The new-look Blazin’ Squad have rubbish underwear.

Someone send a Primark voucher THIS INSTANT.

Picture of the boys in their kecks here.

I found this particularly amusing as I had been aimlessly wandering around glamoursmith last week when I bumped into a guy from work. He bought some Primark pants and then the following day said they were not at all comfy. So PJ I think you should send them some M&S vouchers instead. Much more comfy not to mention classy!


So David Beckham only wears his undies once. Well if reports are to be believed he buys new Calvin Klein Underwear every month and buys £1k’s worth – I don’t know about you but that’s a lot of money on smalls.

I reckon he just wants a new lucrative sponsorship contract. I’m wondering how long it will be before he is signed to be the new body of CK undies. I prefer Freddie!

David Beckham spends a staggering £1000 per month on his underpants.

The Real Madrid and England star buys his Calvin Klein Pro Stretch underpants from a department store in Madrid every two weeks.

A source told the Sunday Mirror newspaper:” He buys 30 pairs every time and spends between 800 and 900 Euros (£545 to £615). He never buys anything other than Calvin Klein from the Pro Stretch range.”

Beckham‘s extravagance doesn’t stop there- he gets through two pairs a day and throws them out after they’ve been worn only once!
The football star chooses from three different styles in the range: hip briefs, trunks and boxer briefs

Footballers Underpants

How on earth did I miss this? The world of football is going underpants crazy!
My favourite quote being “The Laurent Lunchbox has become a veritable summer picnic hamper of moist goodies…”

Then of course there is the Guardian and the smalltalk column and the penchant for asking footballers about their smalls.

Small Talk: Roy Race
Would you mind telling me what colour underpants you’re wearing today?
[Answers instantly] They’re red and yellow. [Small Talk wonders, aloud as it turns out, what style of pant Roy Race might take] I can’t answer that, Small Talk, I’ve already given away too much personal information!

Small Talk: Frank McAvennie
Ahem, assuming you’re wearing any, Frank, what colour underpants have you gone for today?
I’m wearing a pair of black Calvin boxer shorts. I wear black all the time actually, Small Talk, the colour hides a multitude of sins [laughs long and loud].
