Were the sales for Emotion so awful that it’s come to Carly Rae Jepsen singing for loose change? Sure, her last LP didn’t exactly burn up the charts, but Jepsen’s stint as a street performer was for Funny or Die.

The 30-year-old singer headed to Santa Monica’s Third Street Promenade to give shoppers an unexpected surprise. At first, no one recognized her but once she started belting out “Call Me Maybe” and other hits, pedestrians caught on. Watch below to find out how much the Canadian earned as a busker.

Looks like Heinz is the early frontrunner to earn cutest commercial honors during Super Bowl 50. Who doesn’t love cute wiener dogs dressed as giant hot dog buns? And hundreds of them at that.

The condiment brand just unleashed their “Ketchup Game Day Hot Dog Commercial” featuring numerous dachshunds running towards humans dressed in ketchup and mustard bottles while Harry Nilsson’s “Without You” plays in the background. Sure, it sounds a little cheesy, but the pups are so dang adorable. Check out the oh-so-cute ad below.

Video Description

There comes a time in every wiener dog’s life when you look in the full length doggy mirror and ask yourself, am I going to be a plain old boring hot dog forever? Or am I going to jump this rusty chain link fence and join the rest of the wieners in an epic stampede across the globe to seek out the most amazing tasting collection of Heinz Ketchups, so that I can be the best hot dog I can be? And that moment is a defining one, for every wiener dog. These little wieners chose wisely to Meet the Ketchups.

happy-backward-day

If you can decipher that instantly, then clearly you celebrate this special day. For those who are clueless and have absolutely no idea, here’s the deal.

January 31 is Backward Day. What does that all mean? Nothing really LOL. From what I gathered, it’s a day to switch things up and try something backwards. Whether it’s walking in reverse, talking backwardly or flipping something else of your daily routine, today’s the day to experiment.

Are you considering doing something to commemorate this day? Maybe I’ll switch up my meals and eat breakfast for dinner or vice versa. Perhaps, I’ll channel 90s hip-hop group, Kris Kross, and wear my clothes backwards. Sound off below.

Whenever Emily Blunt and John Krasinski walk the red carpet, they always look so polished and put together. The celebrity couple certainly are fashionable. It appears their sense of style extends beyond their attire and to their home decor as well.

The photogenic couple recently listed their Hollywood Hills home and it’s beyond stunning. As it should, given they reportedly spent the past three years remodeling it. For all their hard work, they’re asking for a cool $8 million for the 6 bedroom and 4.5 bath abode.

The rooftop patio, pool area and master bedroom are my favorite features. Check out more pics below along with a video tour. If I won the lottery, I’d definitely put an offer on this.

pokemon-super-bowl-commercial

Pokémon turns 20 this year. To celebrate the milestone anniversary, the Japanese anime brand will re-release the original trading card game, Game Boy games and other nostalgic offerings. In addition, the company just dropped a pretty epic commercial that will air during Super Bowl 50.

“For 20 years, the Pokémon world has inspired fans to train hard and have fun,” said J.C. Smith, senior director of Consumer Marketing at The Pokémon Company International. “This ad is reflective of that passion, and I can’t think of a bigger stage to share this story than the Super Bowl.”

Shot in Rio de Janeiro, the clip shows a diverse group of young people from all around the world as they explore “ambition, drive, and training, concepts that every Pokémon Trainer is familiar with.” The ad ends with the words ‘Train On’ – inspiring fans to “strive to achieve their dreams.” Check out the anniversary ad below.

worst-passwords

In this day and age, it’s extremely surprising ‘password‘ is still one of the most commonly used passwords out there. I’d love to meet these fools in person and slap them silly.

Password management company SplashData recently released its annual round-up of the worst passwords used. The list is based on more than 2 million passwords that leaked online during the year. Not surprisingly, this year’s top movie, Star Wars, ranked among the Top 25. Check out the entire list below.

cheese-lovers-day

How cruel is it to hold National Cheese Lover’s Day so early in the new year? Downright mean if you ask me 😉 How can one celebrate the random holiday without overindulging? Like a chip, you just can’t just eat one slice.

Reportedly, the average American consumes about 31 pounds of cheese each year. Their French counterparts have them beat with about 50 pounds. I’m almost scared to learn how many pounds I consume. I love mac and cheese, lasagna, pizza, cheesburgers and cheese and charcuterie board etc… You get the idea.

Celebrate the holiday by picking up your favorite kind of artisan cheese or by cooking a cheese-inspired dish tonight. If you’re on a strict diet or lactose intolerant, learn more about cheese over at Wikipedia or Cheese.com instead.

McDonalds Introduces The McChoco Potato

Love french fries? Love chocolate? Well, then you’ll love McDonald’s latest offering. There’s a small hitch though. You’ll have to travel halfway around the world to Japan to sample them.

The McChoco Potato is a combination of all things sweet and salty. The Golden Arches signature fries are drizzled with two types of chocolate sauces – chocolate with cacao flavor and white milk chocolate.

This isn’t the first time Japan has tinkered with their French Fries. They previously offered up the Shaka Shaka Potato which featured their fries topped with bacon or cheese. For me, that sounds a lot better than the McChoco Potato. Mind you, I’m not a huge chocolate lover so I’m a little biased.

The McChoco Potato will be available for only a limited time in Japan starting January 26. Take a look below at what they’ll look like.
