Adult-TV Ads Poke Fun at Absurdity of XXX Plots (SFW) Funny series from Dare Vancouver

Doing ads for adult-television networks—not an easy job. You can't use the channel's content, for one thing. Yet Amour, an XXX station in Canada, consistently does amusing work. A couple of years ago, they did a funny series of promos (via Cossette) in which porn actresses attempted to read Shakespeare—with text that clarified, "You won't watch for the acting." Now, Amour is back, with a new agency—Dare Vancouver—and another humorous series of ads. This time, the spots (directed by Tim Godsall of OPC/Biscuit Filmworks, with editing by Arcade Edit) start off like porn scenes—but take hilarious left turns at the end, pointing out that real life is quite a bit more mundane than what happens on Amour. "Fantasies happen, but only on Amour adult TV," says each spot. Two more ads after the jump.
