Video links: Nadverts (8)

I have been wondering for a while why it is that so many companies think it's a good idea to show guys getting hit in the nuts in their commercials. I mean, this is the eighth (!) post featuring what I affectionately call "nadverts" (previous posts herehereherehereherehere and here).

The first of today's clips might give an explanation: In this commercial for a beverage, guys around the world watch a soccer match. When a player gets kicked in the nuts on TV, they all react the same way, cringing in sympathy. A nutshot unites the male half of the earth's population regardless of race, nationality, political or religious beliefs. See for yourself.

And the other half of earth's population leans back and laughs. In the following clip, a delightfully evil young woman employs voodoo to crunch her ex-boyfriend's nuts while he's making out with his new girl. Hilarious!

But it's not just girls who resort to cheap tactics and use a boy's obvious weakness between the legs to their advantage. I really like this Game Boy commercial. The nutshot is offscreen but I love the victim's reaction and the wonderful sound that he makes. Just by the sound of his groan you know that his testies have taken a hit. Victims of bullying around the world rejoice as the guy falls to the ground...

Oh, we love to see arrogant guys get smashed in the goolies, don't we? The hottest thing about the next clip is that we all know what the guy was hoping for - and he gets exactly the opposite...

I could watch that clip again and again and again. And that's exactly what the next clip is playing to. It is a classic, and it's one of my all-time favorite nutshot commercials. It's delightfully silly, the guy is hot, and the setting is awesome. And I just love the way the director behaves. He's so casual and not at all compassionate about the poor actor getting smashed in the nuts over and over again. It's as if he doesn't care about the poor guy's fertility at all. Hilarious!

Reader's pick:

Our reader OMB Stories (who runs a wonderful story blog you should definitely check out) sent us the following clip. It's a very sexy commercial for AXE underwear that starts like like a soft porn video and ends with an unexpected nutshot. I love the buildup and the guy's cute little groan when his balls are smacked...

What's your favorite nutshot commercial? Let me know by leaving a comment or sending me an email (!

Thank you!

A great collection of nadverts once again Alex! I'm sure there's plenty more out there for another juicy installment at some point, can't wait until that day.
