My cats are large, sluggish monsters. But despite their obvious girth and weight, they are absolutely terrified of the vacuum cleaner. They run and hide under the bed anytime it’s turned on. I find that hilarious, especially because my mom likes to tell me how she used to treat our old, skinny cat to vacuum baths. Clearly, this kitten is not having it either. The look of sheer, adorable terror on this cat’s face kind of says it all. [The Stir]

It’s common knowledge that toys are marketed to boys and girls in hugely different–and often troubling–ways. Media literacy advocate and video artist Jonathan McIntosh has come up with a super effective way to illustrate those differences. It’s called the Gendered Advertising Remixer, and the concept is simple: on one side of the screen is a selection of ads targeting boys, on the other side are ads targeting girls. You drag one ad to the audio box, one to the video box, click “Mashup,” and you’ll watch a sweet, maternal ad for a baby doll accompanied by the explosions and violent rhetoric of a GI Joe commercial (or swap the audio and video for equally confusing results). Some of the remixes are funny, but all of them bring up major questions about our culture’s definitions of gender, how early they are instilled in us, and how harmful they can be. But you don’t have to take our word for it. Remix some ads for yourself! [Gendered Advertising Remixer]

Oh noes, ladies!  The menz! What about the menz!?!? How will they ever have a chance of conquering Western civilization if we keep oppressing them so? These are the concerns of “Two and a Half Men” co-creator Lee Aronsohn, who is fretting about the overrepresentation of women on television.

Hipster specs company Warby Parker pranked the internet on April Fool’s Day by introducing their “new” subdivision Warby Barker, which makes eyewear for dogs. I so wish pugs with monocles would become a real thing. [Warby Parker]

London fashion designer Marcus Lupfer is known for making cheeky, creative videos to showcase his collection, and this latest video, to highlight his Fall/Winter 2012 collection, is no exception. It features London band No Cars emulating some of Lupfer’s favorite ’90s Japanese indie pop bands, like Cornelius and Pizzicato 5.
