It's Raining Noodles!

OK so dumping thousands of ping pong balls from an airplane for a dorm complex party while in college isn't exactly the same as this but there are some similarities.

Yesterday, 300 pots of Golden Wonder were dropped from the skies over Portsmouth (UK) and one lucky winner, Tuan Anh Nguyen, 24 years old from Southsea in Portsmouth, took home a pot with £1,000 inside.

The stunt celebrated the launch of The Nation's Noodle & The Nation's Pasta, a new line of instant noodle and pasta snacks from Golden Wonder.

Here's a video of the event.

Hotness Always Wins in Beer Commercials

OK, so you can see this one coming from the first frame. It's a beer ad, after all, and one of two things happen in a beer commercial. Guys act stupid and hot women always make an appearance. This one from Tiger Beer has both.

It's no wonder drinking beer is all too often an indicator of idiocy.

Fake Video Stunt Still Alive And Well

Seriously? Seriously? Didn't we leave the obviously fake video thing behind years ago? Apparently, Gillette didn't get the memo and, sadly, is out with a stupid video in which three "NASCAR drivers" play chicken on the race course resulting in a large G on the raceway made out of meticulously placed skid marks.

Yawn.

Show us the actual, un-edited video and we might consider showing even the slightest bit of interest in this tired, lame, ridiculous tactic.

It's Not A Fart Joke But It'll Do

serena_williams_mother_nature.jpg

Well this is kind of funny. It's not like any of the jokes are new or anything but, sort of like fart jokes, when Aunt Flo comes to visit every month, there's always a bit of a chuckle. No matter how old and tired the jokes are, they still get a laugh.

And that's what's going on in this new Serena Williams commercial for Tampax. The tennis star squares off against Mother Nature on the court and at a press conference. Not sure who wins but there's a lot of balls involved. Oh wait, that's an entirely different category of joke. Sorry.
