Men aren’t usually in commercials for period products. But this spoof ad — which Proctor & Gamble denied via Twitter is affiliated with Always — has lots of them. Men in bright red lipstick, men in bustiers, men with beehive hairdos that would put Amy Winehouse to shame. The spoof stars drag queens and lots of ‘em; each one is boo-hooing like a three-year-old girl because he’s got man parts down south. “There are some people who would just love to have a period,” the subtitling reads. “Let alone a happy one.” I, a person not usually known for her love of advertisements, think the commercial is actually pretty revolutionary. I mean, drag queens? In a commercial? And it’s not the Super Bowl and they’re not being mocked?
Other bloggers did not quite agree with me, calling the commercial “transphobic.” Keep reading »
Don’t you worry your pretty little head about Miss Lindsay Lohan. Earlier today, numerous headlines appeared across the internet of the “Did Lindsay Lohan Buy Drugs In Broad Daylight?” variety. These stories were on account of the video above, which shows LiLo hanging with her friend outside a bar in Venice, California. Two guys approach the pair and hand them a plastic baggie. Lindsay and her friend inspect it. Eventually, as Lindsay lights a cigarette, she awkwardly hands the guy some money. This whole incident was caught on tape by a (very annoying) paparazzi photographer.
Only, Lindsay’s publicist says the baggies didn’t contain drugs. Nope, the mystery objects in the bags were crystals. Keep reading »
File this story under “the Internet is awesome.” Just a few days ago, an anonymous soldier posted this video
of a military band covering Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep,” starring a camo-clad singer with a serious
set of pipes. Carson Daly saw the video and was able to track down the mystery woman on Twitter. Her name is Angie Johnson, and she’s a member of a U.S. Air Forces Central Expeditionary Band called “Sidewinder,” currently stationed in the Middle East. She and Daly exchanged a few Twitter messages, and it looks like she might be appearing on a certain singing competition/reality TV show in the near future. Check out a screencap of their convo after the jump… Keep reading »
You know what’s so confusing and hard? Driving. All those signs! And lights! And potholes! And other cars you have to avoid crashing into! How do you ever wrap your pretty little head around it?
Boy, this Goodyear Polyglass commercial about “when a woman’s at the wheel” is a gem. [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »
Hello. Here’s a side of Mandy Moore we haven’t seen: raunchy sex comedy star. She stars in the upcoming comedy, “Swinging With The Finkels,” as a wife who suggests she and her husband, played by Martin Freeman (or Dr. Watson on “Sherlock,” for all you BBC nerds), “see another couple” as a way to spice up their marriage. This looks pretty funny. Especially the part where she bonks Jerry Stiller in the crotch with a vibrator. It’s already debuted in England, apparently, so ask your friend who lives in London how it is. [YouTube] Keep reading »
How excited am I for the new book, Fashion Cats
(available on Amazon
)? So excited that I made up a song to the tune of the “Spiderman” theme song that goes “Fashion cats, fashion cats, my two favorite things in the world collide … FASHION CATS!!!” [This is true. She has been singing it all morning. -- Editor]
That’s how much. Also, incidentally, these cats clearly want to die from embarrassment. [YouTube
