kinda a mixture of funny and irritating, and some are definitely worst than others

bananas. said...

i don't get the stupidness of these ads. are their newest jeans called stupid? if so, that's just retarded.

but some of these ads are hilarious. the elephant sitting on the guy looks so happy and that kinda makes me happy.

speaking of...HAPPY FRIDAY!!!! FINALLYYY!!!!!!!!!

Georgina Dollface said...

Smart Genes or Stupid pants? I've got both. - G

Lady Ren said...

haha- I've seen the one where she is flashing the security camera and I LOVE these ads-

I get a huge kick out of white trashy people. I am working on being a better person.

cerebral e said...

Lame, irresponsible and a law-suit waiting to happen!

...love Maegan said...

Char said...

LOL yeah...stupid is stupid fun until you land in a hospital. just ask any of the jackasses.

Chic 'n Cheap Living said...

Yeah these ads make me want to go out and spend $150 on jeans. Not!

Kirsty said...

Yeah these are pretty lame! But what is NOT lame... is your new kitty header! love it!

L.A. Daze said...

I like the copy of these ads, but not necessarily the art that goes along with it.

K.Line said...

More in the pantheon of eye-catching offensive.

Hanako66 said...

Tia said...

in a word...
stupid.

JenRem said...

WendyB said...

I'm clearly too smart to get these.

Alisa said...

They are trying too hard and it comes off as stupid.

Worst tag line "Be stupid" - So bad.

Down and Out Chic said...

one word, "stupid." :)

Tracie said...

Seems like they ripped off Fail Blog.

Your blog looks great!

Kitty Stampede said...

well at least they admit they are stupid. but apparently stupid is really cool now.

Midtown Girl said...

I think Im gonna make a stupid dating ad...oh wait there a ton already - LOL!!!

Lianne said...

I think the only "smart" one is the elephant sitting on the person. Stupid is right. Have a great weekend.

Iva said...

clearly they are stupid, trying to make stupid 'cool'. major fail. FAIL FAIL FAIL.

but YOU?! Major, total A+++++ for your all around complete fabulousness! You should have been the marketing director for this. Diesel needs drollgirl!!

I hope you have an amazing weekend and a fabulous friday!! FRIDAY FRIDAY FRIDAY!! ITS HERE!!

Kellie said...

They are actually a tad funny. Not sure if they are doing what they are supposed to be doing, but they do get my attention. :)

You're Lucky I Don't Have a Gun... said...

well, i think they have the "stupid" market cornered.

Christiejolu said...

Some of these were funny...But what the heck are the ads for...

Erin Elizabeth said...

If I had to guess, I'd say that Diesel now officially sells douchebags.

Jennifer DeDonato said...

I don't get this whole thing!

Pretty Little World said...

I mean, I guess they catch your attention, but I don't really get all of the stupid references.

Are they trying to associate their brand with stupidity? I suppose that's one way to go...

Kathryn said...

I guess if you want your friends to think you are stupid, buy Diesel clothing.

I like the elephant one though...I guess that makes me a little stupid.

tulpen said...

I was entertained by these. Stupid though they were.

I totally flashed security cameras back in my young/skinny/hot days.
Tits and Ass. A lot.

Good times.

the spectator said...

These are dumb.

Kara said...

Not gonna lie, the one with the girl jumping into bed kinda made me giggle. The rest...eh?

Asylum Dolly said...

Yup, STUPID is the word.
The stupidist one is the last one. WTF? But really, i totally relate. This one time i was walking around the african wilderness in my undies, when i was suddenly ambushed by a lion. I thought, "fuck! I'd better run! ....but first- i'd better take a photo of my punani"

O.o

I guess some of them are mildly amusing, and if we were all smart enough to see that it is all in jest, it'd be fine. But unfortunately a large section of human beings really ARE very very stupid, and will be encouraged to to keep doing stupid things, like drink driving, etc etc. But i guess no ad in the world is ever gonna stop that.

Yep, they are stupid! Except for the elephant one. The elephant is not stupid at all.He knows exactly what he's doing :) Go Elephant!

Heather Taylor said...

Stupid is looking at these ads and going "this was a good idea."

todayandeveryday said...

You know what? I bet those stupid kids feel REALLY smart now. "Look ma, I'm stupid!!!! weeeeee"
Brother, ugh.

The Zhush said...

hmmm...would have given anything to have sat in on the meeting at the ad agency that convinced the client to go with this campaign!

Kelsey said...

I like the trial and error one

E said...

Diesel will never cease to amaze me. I still vividly remember a few from when I was in high school. Even when I was "young and hip," I didn't get them. Apparently still don't...

Kasia said...

SogniSorrisi said...

Diana said...

DIesel always gets the noggin turning.

Krystal said...

I'm kind of not a fan of these....I mean I don't get them. I think they are a miss. Maybe I'm missing something...

Lorena said...

I loved these ads, thought most of them were very clever.
When I saw them in December and pointed out to my husband that my fave was and my fave one was "smart has the brains but stupid has the balls" he looked at me like I was some kind of moron.
But I just love the Pinky and The Brain feel to it...
