Apparently, Nike is launching some new golf product. Apparently, it's going to be really scary. Apparently, it's coming on Black Friday, November 26.

Did you know Ashley Leggat did a Pepsi commercial? Do you even know who Ashley Leggat is? Well you would if you had watched Life After Derek or the Lindsay Lohan movie Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen.
Anyway, we stumbled across a message board post about a commercial she had done for Pepsi a while ago and we thought we'd share.
If you recall a week or so ago Bundaberg Run ran a commercial in which a crocodile was blown up at the conclusion of the spot. For some inexplicable reason, apparently a few people thought the commercial was a bit more than just a stunt and thought the crocodile actually was blown up.
While we weren't aware of any outcry over the spot, the brand saw fit to send us an apology video clarifying the crocodile was not killed. At least during the filming of the commercial.

As you may recall, five or so years ago, there was a trendlet that involved people selling their body parts to brands. Foreheads were tattooed. Pregnant bellies were auctioned off. Cleavage was branded. Online casino Golden Palace was the biggest brand to take advantage of this trendlet placing their name on streakers, boobs, and any body part they could find on eBay.
Golden Palace is at it again with Tana Gabrielle who is lending her cleavage to Golden Palace as part of a promotion in which the online casino bid and bought for $51,000 the helmet of NASCAR driver Robbie Gordon who threw the helmet at another driver after a crash.
Gordon is donating the proceeds to Harrah's Employee Relief Fund which assists families and eployees affected by Hurricane Katrina. Babrielle, with Golden Palace tattooed to her chest, will accept the helmet for the cause.
