Monday Funday: dance to the dildo

 

Sexy content

Ok this is weird. But it’s also funny, innovative and memorable – and that’s the holy trinity for creatives. To highlight its new partnership with Ann Summers, spotty-teen favourite Porn Hub has composed an electro track using only the buzzing and jingling of sex toys. Stop laughing at the back.

Who scored? Who got the assist? Why do I lie awake at night thinking about Huddersfield Town’s reserve goalkeeper? If like MF you’re a fantasy football fanatic, you’ll know what we’re on about.

This John Smith’s ad from 1983 is a delight to watch both for its simplicity and the thought of the guy crouching behind the bar holding the dog.
