Remember that Google Chrome ad featuring a Google Doc aimed at winning a spurned girlfriend back? How annoying is that commercial, right? Well the folks over at Upright Citizens Brigade made a response video, from the perspective of pissed off girlfriend Jen, and it’s pretty funny. Check it out, and watch the original video after the jump! Keep reading »
I don’t know about you guys, but if I was going to the premiere of a movie starring as many totally pretty guys as “Magic Mike” features, I’d try extra hard to look really good. But it seems like the vast majority of women who attended the “Magic Mike” red carpet premiere over the weekend didn’t really bother. Maybe they thought they just couldn’t compete against the gorgeousness of Channing Tatum and (ugh) Alex Pettyfer. Fair enough.

We’re already big fans of all things Tavi Gevinson and Rookie Magazine, the after school online project she started with a few friends and Paul Rudd. But now we’re totally legitimately jealous of Miss Gevinson. This summer she’ll be embarking on a grand summer adventure — a road trip from New York to Los Angeles with Rookie editorial director Anaheed Alani, photographer Petra Collins, and Hazel Cills, a writer for Rookie and the Urban Outfitters blog. The trip will culminate with a week-long art installation at Space 15Twenty called Strange Magic, the centerpiece of which will be a teenage shrine. Says Tavi, “Bring us some kind of souvenir of your teenagerhood that might be at home in a giant Rookie shrine. A journal, bracelet, photo, tape, or other weird thing so long as it is not dangerous and/or Two and a Half Men memorabilia, and so long as you are OK with never getting it back, ’cause we’ll need them for keeps.”
You can follow their adventures at Urban’s blog.
Inveterate bikini model and Florida girl Kate Upton was shot for this month’s Vogue (the one with Emma Stone on the cover) in actual clothes. And as she is wont to tell you, it was a very strange experience. “I’m from Florida, where your whole wardrobe is flip-flops, cutoffs and bikinis,” said Upton of the experience. Anna Wintour’s magazine set her up in a Joseph Altuzarra coat and Michael Kors boots, fully covering her swimsuit-ready frame. What do you think? Can Upton make the transition from bikini babe to couture cool? [NY Post]
Several of the stars of “Gossip Girl” have openly admitted that they’re kind of phoning it in at this point (see also Penn Badgely on Dan Humphrey: “It’s a gentle release with him.”), which is probably why Ed Westwick’s taking up other interests — like modeling. Westwick’s been a spokesperson for K-Swiss and Filipino line Penshoppe, and he’s now the face of designer Philipp Plein, which is why you can catch him in Plein’s latest runway show and in the designer’s latest series of ads. Check out Westwick’s ad for Plein after the jump!

Everybody’s got one: a friend who just won’t shut up about how awesome his or her partner is. If you’re single, there is no way you want to hear your friend prattle on about their special little flower of a relationship. Mikala Bierma and Emmy Blotnick know exactly what we’re talking about, which is why they made the very instructional “Asshole In A Relationship” video series. [Blackbook]
