iJustine Helps Pimp New Heinz Ketchup Packets


In a friendly little tit for tat (tweet for twat?) exchange between Amber, Mike and iJustine, Heinz is getting the word out about its new individual serving packaging.

For the first time in 40 years, the ketchup king has redesigned its packets. The new packets, which won't replace but be sold alongside existing packets, are shaped in a way that makes them usable for both dipping and squirting on food.

We're not claiming this is necessarily anything more than organic word of mouth. But if you know anything about Justine, she does love a good burger.

Gloves Grip, Hands Slap, Fiorina Fails, Arm Shopped


- An interesting way to illustrate the gripping power of dish washing gloves.

- Like a little butt bongo? Then you'll love this NSFW ad (but safe for YouTube) for Coco de Mer.

- See Carla Fiorina's horrific commercial bid for a California Senate seat.

- When you're stuck with unusable images from a photoshoot there's always PhotoShop.

- Want to manipulate a male model Subservient Chicken-style? Then head over to Wrangler's Manipulate a Man.

- Foursquare just might end up trumping Twitter when it comes to a revenue model.

- That head chef in those new Domino's commercial? Not really the brand's head chef at all. He's the organization's VP of Innovation. But he does run the test kitchen and does wear a white chef coat. So that makes it all OK, right?

- Have an iPhone? Like looking at hot, half-dressed women? Then download Maxim's iPhone app. Pretend to be texting while your ogling hotties.

CBS Stands For Corporate Bull Shit


Really. It does. According to Raging Grannies who whipped together a little anti-CBS sentiment for the networks decision to accept the Tim Tebow ad but not ads for other causes such as MoveOn or The Light.

The women sing, "CBS - Corporate Bulls Shit , they won't take ads from Moveon or The light , but take three million from right-to-life, they're hypocrites that won't give a voice to womens choice"

Good stuff.

OMG! Miley Cyrus's Nine-Year-Old Sister Pimps Lingerie. Not.


OH MY GOD! Little girls! In "lingerie!" Posing next to a stripper pole! Alert the blogosphere! Call out the cause groups! Notify the evening news! What, wait, why?

Everyone is in an uproar over the 9-year-old sister of Miley Cyrus and some other young girls posing around a "stripper pole" for a line of children's clothing. Everyone jumped to the immediate conclusion: the clothing is lingerie and the marketer is into kiddy porn.

Untrue says Oooh, La La! Couture Founder Annie Dugourd. "The story is completely false...it's a total lie...we don't make lingerie. We just make tutu dresses, tank tops attached to tutus."

Dugourd blames Perez Hilton for blowing the thing out of proportion.

Of course, underage dressing like like they appear to be looking for more than just an innocent pat on the head is entirely another issue.

Story trail: Adland, Boing Boing, CNBC, CNBC, Perez Hilton.

Everyone. Take a deep breath. Exhale. Relax.

Now go on with your boring day.
