Yesterday around 10:30AM a truck owned by the band Imperial Stars blocked all three southbound lanes of freeway 101 near Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles. The stunt, three months in the making, was originally planned for Monday but moved becasue of the Columbus Day holiday.

The stunt was hatched to promote the band's new single, Traffic Jam 101, which the band performed live atop the truck while traffic piled up for miles.

As many as thirty people in other vehicles were part of the stunt. Imperial Stars IT Manager Tyler Fairbanks said, "Most people were in shock, but then we started getting people yelling at us."

Well, yes, Tyler, people do tend to yell when idiots block traffic on a highway. People don't take kindly to being stuck in a traffic jam. Especially when it's for some stupid publicity stunt.

Big Brother Hottie Lends Boobs She Doesn't Want to Lingerie Brand

You've got to laugh at these celebutantes who pump themselves up to E cup deliciousness and then end up regretting it after the fact. Apparently, that the sentiment UK Big Brother star Chantelle Houghton has about her surgical boost to 32E.

But that minor issue didn't stop Houghton from using her assets to make a little money along the way. In a new campaign for La Senza, Houghton proudly flaunts her generous curves for the lingerie brand.

Sharing her regret over having the surgery, Houghton told Heat magazine, "They're just too big. Now I just want to hide them. I thought I wanted to go up to that size and I loved them at the time, but now I wish I'd never had them done."

Well, Chantelle, hoisting your pulchritudinous puppies into some revealing lingerie is hardly going in the right direction if concealment was your goal.
