Who Is That Chubby Bear In Bangkok?

Citibank Thailand Bear 00

A few days ago, I just returned back home from Bangkok, Thailand. I was there with my mom for a month as my sister finally completed her gender-confirmation surgery. It has been a relief for everyone that my sister is now officially a female. Continue reading Who Is That Chubby Bear In Bangkok?

Cute Guy Uses His Cubbish Charms To Sell Trident Layers Gum And It Works

Commercials are, more or less, fairly effective.  They are visual invasions and auditory assaults to the senses which can do their manipulative job in less than 30 seconds.  When I first saw the “Sword” Trident Layers Gum commercial, the ad did its spectacular magic on me as the cute cub in it caught my attention in less than 3 seconds. [KEEP ON WOOFIN’!]

Sumo Wrestlers & White Background: “Distributel”

My good friend, Erl, from the Brotherhood Of Bears Yahoo Group has shared this “Distributel” commercial using sumo wrestlers to make a visual point.

There’s something about seeing two semi-nude large men superimposed on an overwhelmingly white background.  You can check out more screenshots in the bearmythology Flickr Photostream.

Drew Powell: Mr. “Stinky” Auto Coverage

Is Drew Powell cornering the market of “the sweaty and smelly husky guy”?  Check out his Jack-In-The-Box fruit smoothies commercial for proof.


Drew Powell as Mr. “Stinky” Auto Coverage

Anyway, I’m guessing that the rest of the population is supposed to cringe at the “fat slob” as the camera focuses on his sweaty armpits and belly fold (lol, thanks DG!).  I’m also guessing that it should induce a nasty nasal reaction from such images.  I say “guessing” because all I could see is an amazingly beautiful and huggable husky body that’s drenched in sweat and emanating a delicious musky scent.

Daddy Bear In A Heartwarming Toyota “Believe” Ad

I’m a sucker for commercials like these.  It could be due to my never really having a father figure when I was a kid.  Anyway, not only is this a heartwarming commercial, we daddy bear lovers are treated to something special…

Terry Hollands: Big Tall Order Model

BigTallOrder04

I’ve been going through the blog’s comments and missed out on Matt updating us about strongman, Terry Hollands, being a model for Big Tall Order.  I quickly went to the website and guess which links I clicked on first?  That’s right.  “Trousers” and “Underwear.”  Unfortunately, there were no husky models for those links and I hope I can convince you guys to email the proprietors and demand them that we need to see Terry Hollands modeling in trousers and underwear, because — goshdangit! — we need to, uh, make informed decisions when making our purchases…  Yeah, that’s it…  ;P

Billy Keenly Pimping Bing.com

A year ago, Chubarama posted this hilarious video that starred Billy Keenly.  I then clicked on a Bing.com advertisement on YouTube and pleasantly found Billy in it:

Anyways, so I went to Bing.com and went straight to the Images search and typed in “musclechub” (Bing.com’s musclechub results) and got 5 images.  Lol.   And that’s with Safe Search off.  I then didn’t try the rest because the Image search is a dealbreaker for me (the actual search might actually be spectacular).  Anyway, here’s more of Billy Keenly from that Microsoft commercial.  Billy has a MySpace page too and check out his Serious Lunch comedy troupe.

Cute Chub Involved In Improv & Advertising For Eclipse Gum

There’s a series of commercials for Eclipse gum in Funny Or Die.  It’s pretty good and it’s even better because there is this cute chub who I probably wouldn’t reject even if he did have bad breath.  He’s called Will but I’m not sure what his real and full name is.

Two Hawaiian Musclebears & A Whoo-Ha Black Musclechub Taking A Shower

This is a trailer for the ‘Ohina Short Film Showcase 2003 in Hawaii.  And, more importantly, whoever picked the actors for this commercial deserves a gold star.  The second musclebear is bodybuilder, Ernest Chang, and I have no clue who the other two are.  My personal favorite is definitely the massively built black musclechub.  The moment he showed up on the video, I actually silently spelled “Damn!” as “D-A-Y-U-M!” in my head.

More Woofy Commercial Bears Of Scotland

Here are more awesome commercials (courtesy of TheUnionAgency) with, of course, woofy Scottish bears, chubs, and daddies…  Slainte!

This first one is from Careers Scotland where we find a handsome daddy bear searching for career advice in a very wrong (but funny) place…

The next two are from ScotRail commercials; and I have to admit that they’re pretty clever and they work.  More importantly, both have lovely daddy bears in ’em…


I will watch this cute daddy yell “Salt & Vinegar” all day…


Guess who’s newspaper stand I’d go to?

This cute chub sold the company’s services for just being hot.  But, please, don’t eat the merchandise!

And, finally, here is a series of commercials for Broadband For Scotland.  (OMG, some are still using dial-up?!)  Anyway, a cute daddy bear goes psycho both at home and at work because of said dial-up…

Chubby Daddy Bear Taking A Shower: Healthy Living Commercial

healthyliving-bear-18

healthyliving-bear-12Actually, I’d like to disagree…

TheUnionAgency YouTube page is a great site of commercials which are all based in Scotland.  My favorite one was solely based on the amount of skin shown. Lol.  Anyway, this is part of a commercial series from Healthy Living where we see three men in various stages of “living unhealthily.”  The last man shown and the object of my attraction (the beautiful chubby daddy bear taking a shower) would definitely raise eyebrows as it’s not really making fun of chubby men, but more about providing an alternate lifestyle.  Again, it’s that fine gray line between looking sexy & hot and feeling healthy…

Goonday Moonday: Construction Workers & Assorted Large Men

dolorminworker

In this edition of Goonday Moonday, all of the media here are from ads of some kind (courtesy of AdsOfTheWorld.com).  I am still amazed to only find a handful of ads showing large men in flattering or the very least, respectful, ways.  For example, the above ad appears to be a very respectable commercial.  But look closely and pay attention to the product that’s being sold…  Caught it?  Good.  Yes, we have another hefty man being used as an “humorous advertising device” (I made this term up).

Am I bitter at this common practice?  Yes and no.  Yes, since as we are all admirers of large men, we have a better grasp and understanding for men of such beautiful sizes.  As such, we prefer to view our objects of affection in a much better light.  And, no, because, in some ways, we feel like we belong in such an exclusive group that the rest of the world won’t ever understand.  When we see such husky and chubby men in the media being ridiculed (whether it be inoffensively or no), we can’t help but grin as we know and feel something that is utterly and uniquely ours.  Laugh all they want, but we get the last laugh as we partake in a celebratory visual feast.

Still, that doesn’t mean that we cannot change the world’s view on large men…

Anyway, here’s a pretty cool commercial about construction workers enjoying some fine afternoon dining with a Wendy’s Gourmet Mushroom Swiss Burger…

There’s really nothing “negative” about the above commercial.  However, it inadvertently juxtaposes “macho” men with “queer” behavior.  Basically, it sends a message that this ad is and should be funny because rugged men with facial hair should not be eloquent, polite, and, well, “queenie.”  In turn, it also inadvertently compares gay folk with theatre-going (note my spelling of “theater”) English folk.  -_^

From the rugged construction workers, we’ll now take a look at sumo wrestlers — who are, quite possibly, the most-used HAD (my acronym for my made-up term, “humorous advertising device”).

So why are sumo men funny?  Why is their weight a great punchline for a joke?  And why are they funnier when they’re wearing a tutu or about to celebrate gay love?

With those questions in mind, here’s a Men’s Health magazine ad…

chubby-buddha-bear-mens-health

First of all, BearMythology completely disagrees with the above ad.  That unbelievably gorgeous image of a chubby bear not only has a body of a God, but someone I and many others will definitely worship.  You know that ancient & mystical Sanskrit word of “OHM”?  It was actually our female & gay bear/chub loving ancestors’ term to describe a buddha (not the slimmer Buddha, of course) when they see one walking on the streets.  They would actually say, “Oh Holy Moley!” or “OHM!” (thus it was recorded the very first instance of internet slang).

Now let’s take a look at ads that are just using silhouettes of large men.

radiantgymtwicetheman

Admirers of stocky & large men are typically torn: healthwise, it’s better for such men to be “fit” rather than husky or obese.  Unfortunately, we love them big.  And, more often than not, to us, the bigger the better.

Well, that’s something that I cannot cover on a post that’s just called “Goonday Moonday.”  It’s too complicated.  😛

And to end this post, here are more ads of our beautiful big men…

Okay, I lied.  This is the last thing I’m going to say.  I’m typically very open and forgiving, but I absolutely hate the following ad.  Any ad that equates depression to obesity then sell a gym out of it is downright low and insulting.  The chubby man needs to see mental help and not an aerobics instructor…

Shirtless Saturday: OMG! Screenshots Of The Turkish Bears In A Bath From The Halls Candy Commercial

The very day I posted and asked about the burly Turkish bearish men from a Halls Candy commercial, a kind soul by the name of Michael emailed me screenshots from it!  Even though I was searching for a video, I was more than willing to repay him for his generosity.  Alas, he’s stubborn as a bull.  -_^  Seriously, friend, thank you very much!

To me, this Halls commercial is 30 seconds of pure homo fantasy.  Picture a dad skiing with his two kids.  Suddenly, he suffers from a runny nose and starts coughing, thus ruining his children’s vacation.  He then takes a Halls Candy (debatable if it’s truly a candy, but that argument is for a different blog).  The vapor action goodness of the candy’s menthol eucalyptus whisks our daddy away to a Turkish bath and ends up seating between two burly Turkish men wearing only a towel.  The burly men then educates the “little” dad how to inhale and exhale properly.  And if you watch closely, the dad is overtly ecstatic about the whole metaphor-thing-coming-to-life business.  His kids then disrupt him from his fantasy sequence as our daddy skis away with a big smirk on his face.

Well, okay, so it wasn’t all that homoerotic (plus I’m not sure if I had accurately remembered it), but you gotta admit that it’s a tad bit homo just by looking at the screenshots.  And, also, why was he wearing pajamas in a spa?  Note how his hands are clasped together while covering up, oh, I don’t know…  MORNING WOOD???!!!  Uh, yeah, sure…

turkish-bears-halls-01I have no clue who they are; so I’ll hereby baptize the bearded, unibrow wonder
as Brian Blessed, while the other as Speed Racer’s dad, John Goodman.

Dimitri Ivanov: Head Weight Lifting Champion

ESPN Brazil had a couple of print ads during the Beijing Olympics displaying some “unique” champion athletes who, despite such extraordinary skills, are considered by the majority to be “not good enough for Beijing.”  One of the three ads is my favorite.  It had a fictional athlete, and a seriously massively and beefy musclechub, named “Dimitri Ivanov.”  He was a “Head Weight Lifting Champion.”  Lol.  [AdsOfTheWorld]

Happy Thanksgiving From The Shane Twins

Unfortunately, I only have the final 3 seconds of this commercial (someone shared it from my old BM Yahoo group).  I haven’t uploaded it yet but will do so when I get to it.  Right now, I just want to get back to eating, just chilling, and watching some games on the television.  Anyway, here are the screenshots from that Shane Twins commercial for Sonny’s BBQ…

And if there are any reasons to be thankful today, it is that we’re all so lucky to be blessed by such magnificent behemoths such as these fellas…

Shirtless Saturday: Leon Allen White As Bull Power

Leon Allen White (popularly-known as the massive and acrobatic pro-wrestler, Big Van Vader) once appeared as “Bull Power” in a television commercial for a waterbed company.  Unfortunately, I have yet to find this blurry commercial somewhere in my aging VHS archives.  In the meantime, here are some collages from that pretty funny ad.
