Do you have any Abercrombie & Fitch clothing kicking around the house gathering dust? Hopefully the answer is negative. No self-respecting homo should have a logo tee from the brand in their closet since the early 2000s, especially all you 30+ ones. That’s right, I’m talking to you. Unless you’re in high school or early college, you have no business wearing A&F. I’ll give a pass for those pieces with very subtle branding on it. On the off chance that you do, here’s a brilliant and hilarious idea on what to do with it.
Greg Farber came up with a creative idea to change the brand’s image. His video is in response to Abercrombie & Fitch CEO Mike Jeffries’ ridiculous statement about how he doesn’t want “not so cool” kids or women who wear size large to wear his company’s clothes. As Farber points out in his video, this coming from a guy who looks like Biff from the Back to the Future flicks makes it all the more absurd. Watch Farber as he covers the company’s business practices and goes on a hunt for A&F clothes in vintage stores in hopes of donating them to skid row residents. Check out the clip below.
Ever wonder how much hair your head grows in a year. Apparently six inches worth. If that bit of knowledge excites you, then you’re going to love this video created by BuzzFeed. It covers other bodily functions over the course of a year. From how much skin your body sheds, to the number of sweat you produce, everything is covered. The human body is truly a fascinating thing. The only thing I wish they would’ve uncovered is the amount of semen an average man produces. Can you imagine the number of buckets? Watch the video below.
Have you seen those Dove “Real Beauty Sketches” commercials? It’s where women sit down with a forensics artist behind a white sheet to describe themselves. Then another person comes in to give their description of said person. The whole point of the campaign is to show women they’re more beautiful than they think. Regardless of gender, we truly our own worst critics.
A few parodies of the Dove creative have surfaced online. A few weeks ago, one showed men having an inflated opinion of themselves. They thought they looked like movie stars like Brad Pitt and George Clooney, but in reality they weren’t. As funny as that sketch was, this new #Balls parody is even funnier.
Only 4% of men around the world know how beautiful their balls are, according to the video description. Watch men discover that their soggy freckled balls are actually beautiful visions to behold. Check out the new parody below, along with the original Dove commercial.
Well this is exciting news. If you’ve ever felt left out because there are male condoms and female condoms, and you’ve always wondered where the condom for your pooper was… you may be in luck.
Daniel Resnic’s ‘Origami’ condom designs are made of latex-free silicon and come in three varieties. You have your standard male condom, a female condom, and a receptive anal intercourse condom (Which, as far as I know, is a first.)
The condoms are said to be safer, and more pleasurable. They claim that the condoms simulates the sensation of ‘sex with out a condom’, which is great news for you bareback lovers out there who still want to protect themselves from STIs. If approved, the condoms could go into production as soon as 2015.
If you can manage to not laugh your ass off there are a few hilarious videos explaining how the condoms work and are inserted into and onto the body for use. Unfortunately, I had to turn them off because I’m immature and when I giggle too much I have to pee.
That’s what social commentator Dr. Boyce Watkins says about the clip. American rapper Tyler The Creator is the man behind Mountain Dew’s three part trash-talking ad spots featuring Felicia the Goat. The first one showed the wily goat violently throwing a soda at a waitress while the second spot had her pulled over for a Dew-U-I, but it’s the last one that’s creating so much controversy that forced PepsiCo to issue an apology.
The ad features a battered and bloodied woman, sporting a neck brace and crutches, as she attempts to pick her aggressor from a police lineup. Meanwhile, Felicia threatens her from behind the mirror with zingers like this, “Keep your mouth shut. I’m gonna get outta here and I’m gonna ‘dew’ you up.” Dr. Watkins eloquently describes the offending lineup as follows:
“Of course, in the world of Mountain Dew, every single suspect is black. Not just regular black people, but the kinds of ratchety negroes you might find in the middle of any hip-hop minstrel show: Gold teeth, “mean mugging,” sun glasses wearing, white-t sportin, hard core n*ggaz ready to “get into some ol gangsta sh*t.”
One of them is even called Beyonte (OK that part I admit I chuckled at ;) This isn’t the first time Tyler the Creator has come under fire. The 22-year-old has often drawn criticism for being homophobic and misogynistic in his raps. His rep issued a statement to the Hollywood Reporter about the offensive commercial. Check out the clips after his statement.
“It was never Tyler’s intention to offend however, offense is personal and valid to anyone who is offended. Out of respect to those that were offended the ad was taken down,” it said. “For those who know and respect Tyler he is known for pushing boundaries and challenging stereotypes through humor. This is someone who grew up on David Chappelle. This situation is layered with context and is a discussion that Tyler would love to address in the right forum as he does have a point of view.” – Tyler The Creator
It’s time for your monthly roundup of the best bloopers and blunders by newscasters. Not surprisingly, the April 2013 montage begins with A.J. Clemente’s huge first day flub. His on air debut which featured him swearing then deliver an incoherent introduction went viral.
Another high profile blooper which involved Ryan Lochte also made the cut. One of the news anchors burst out in a laughing fit after interviewing him, while the other one imitated the Olympic swimmer by quoting one of Lochte’s ridiculous answers. Other highlights include a Pakistani reporter slapping a kid who gets in his shot, another fending off two women trying to kiss him and horny sea lions. Check them all out below.
I simply have no words. I can’t believe will all the departments and people needed to sign off on a new ad creative, that no one thought this could possibly be offensive.
Believe it or not, the European division of Hyundai came up with the brilliant idea to feature a suicide attempt to highlight their vehicle’s new feature. At least with Ford’s controversial ads featuring the Kardashian sisters tied up was a bit tongue-in-cheek. The suicide clip is just in bad taste. Naturally given the uproar, Hyundai issued an apology and removed the ad from YouTube.
“Hyundai Motor deeply and sincerely apologizes for the offensive viral ad,” Hyundai says in a statement. “The ad was created by an affiliate advertising agency, Innocean Europe, without Hyundai’s request or approval … Hyundai apologizes to those who have been personally impacted by tragedy.”
Titled “Pipe Job,” the one-minute commercial shows a man sitting in a car in a closed garage trying to kill himself with toxic exhaust fumes. In the end, his suicide attempt is thwarted due to Hyundai’s 100 percent water emissions. Surprisingly, a 2002 ad by Citroen and a 2009 ad by Audi were also based on similar concepts. Check out the yanked commercial below.
I can’t with this story, it’s too much. Drag Race mega goddess and friend to Homorazzi MANILA LUZON is at the forefront of a fabulous scandal.
In an article by CHARISMA NEWS (which is the gayest name I have ever heard), it states that this is the second year of this controversial drag show at the University of San Diego. ‘The drag show will be emceed by Manila Luzon, a professional drag queen and openly homosexual man who advocates same-sex “marriage.” ‘
Like I can’t, it’s SO FUNNY! Marriage in quotation is too much, and Manila Luzon a professional? PLEASE ;)
