There's little doubt that the most bizarre commercial of the 21st century so far is the sight of Sharon Stone in post-coital bliss, having been shagged by the AOL icon. Shazza has the "most amazing experience of her life," while "he" has to run. It makes you want to cross your legs thinking about it. A truly iconic experience! But it set us wondering. Which advertising icons could make us feel really horny, baby? And which have the sex appeal of Fat Bastard? Feel free to write in with your own suggestions. Yeah, baby, yeah!
The Jolly Green Giant: We know he's a giant and he's experienced and everything, what with having spent so much time down in the valley, but there's just no getting away from it, he's just too corny for words. Oh, and he's green.
Tony The Tiger: He's grrrrreeatt! The only time you can say, "Go get 'em, Tiger" without blushing. Well, maybe not.
The Pillsbury Dough Boy: Although the Dough Boy was Toy of the Year in 1972, we're a bit worried about his performance. Nothing against his portly appearance, you understand, it's more that he was famous for his belly poke.
The Energizer Bunny: Anything furry and pink that can just keep going and going has got to make the list, right?
The Microsoft Butterfly: Sorry, we're sure that one day he'll grow up to be Bill Gates, magically transformed by the size of his wallet, but right now he's just a geeky butterfly. Call us old-fashioned, but we like women to wear the tights.
Mini Me: You know what they say, The smaller the man . . . Actually, do they say that? Still, he has a twinkle in his eye, despite coming up to most women's waists. On second thought, perhaps that's why he has a twinkle in his eye!
Ronald McDonald: Despite all the promises of a quarter-pounder (with relish), the McMuffin, the shakes, and despite his huge, er, feet, and the S&M costume, he still has to ask you to "smile."
Colonel Sanders: Insert finger-lickin' good joke here. (Mind the hyphen, there . . .)
Betty Crocker: Has all the sex appeal of her modern-day counterpart, Martha Stewart. 'Nuff said.
The Pets.com sock puppet: See above. You tell us why a hand-controlled sock puppet should make the list . . .
The Exxon Tiger: Come on, be honest, these days he usually comes unleaded. And he may be slick, but who wants to deal with stains like those?
