Ad of the Day: Paralympic Snowboarder Amy Purdy Perseveres in Toyota's Super Bowl Spot — Toyota is out with one of its two Super Bowl ads, and it's going hard for the inspirational route. As promised, actress and Paralympic snowboarder Amy Purdy stars in "How Great I Am," a minute-long spot set to Muhammad Ali's classic speech before his 1974 title fight against George Foreman.

Movie Stars From Iconic Scenes Stare Right at You in FX's Intense, Eerie Promos — How would you feel if, during high-tension moments in your favorite movies, the cameras cut to slow motion and the lead actors turned to stare right at you? Now you might find out, thanks to a new campaign by from Fox Entertainment's movie channel, FXM.

Ad of the Day: This Is How Netflix Will, and Won't, Make Your Life Better — Netflix is so good, it can even make a sullen teenager smile. The streaming content service is out with a new European ad created by Wieden + Kennedy Amsterdam. At first blush, the existential voiceover makes the commercial seem the slightest bit like DirecTV's warnings against the many dangers of having cable instead of satellite.

Maker of Giant Tablets Has a Magician Accost People on the Street and Supersize Their iPads — If you could magically turn your iPad into a much bigger tablet, would you? Fuhu is promoting its giant new Nabi tablets. (They're available in 24-, 32-, 43-, 55- and astonishing 65-inch versions.)

Tostitos' NFL Sponsorship Gets Salty and Cheesy With Eagles Coach Chip Kelly — Tostitos would like you to know that Chip Kelly, head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles, is not the official chip of the NFL-because Tostitos is. Goodby Silverstein & Partners is out with a new series of 10 pre-roll ads, 15 seconds each, riffing on the pun.

Ad of the Day: Mercedes-Benz Just Made a Great Fashion Ad, and It's a Total Piss-Take — As a rule, fashion ads are beautifully vapid. And they just got the send-up they deserve. Next week is Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in Berlin, and the event's title sponsor is out with a new video that's a delightful parody of fashion marketing nonsense.

Was McDonald's 'Signs' Ad on the Golden Globes Inspiring or Abominable?

Ad of the Day: NHL Pros Surprise Sled Hockey Players for Gatorade — For anyone who thinks playing ice hockey strapped into a sled is easier than playing it standing up, Gatorade would like to set the record straight.

Justin Bieber's Calvin Klein Ads Make Everyone Everywhere Question Everything — Stop the presses. Justin Bieber is making a Justin Bieber face in ads for Calvin Klein, and people are losing their minds. "Is he actually hot in these pictures?" some people are asking. "Will he ever be as hot as Marky Mark?" other people are wondering.

This Samsung App Helps Children With Autism Make Eye Contact — For all the griping and joking about the alienating effects of smartphone technology, it's worth remembering that ubiquitous mini computers can actually help people socialize-even people who struggle with basic forms of communication.
