Toshiba and Intel's 'The Beauty Inside' Explores True Love


Have you watched The Beauty Inside? It's one of the best examples of branded content ever. The story is deep, wide and intoxicatingly engaging. Over six episodes, we follow the life of a man, Alex, who looks different each day. And he's falling in love with the same woman who, of course, doesn't know he's the same man inside.

Alex keeps a journal of himself each day documenting his different personas. He's always alone because, well, it's not easy creating a lasting relationship with a person who looks different everyday...even if they are the same person inside.

Backstreet Boys Tout Old Navy Skinny Jeans For All Sizes


Hmm. So this is where the Backstreet Boys have been. Trapped inside a giant Old Navy boom box. The fashion brand has tapped the boy (man?) band to tout a new line of Rockstar skinny jeans with "more stretch" to fit "more people." Great, CP+B. Now even more fat people can force jeans over their gigantic asses falsely thinking they are skinny because they are basically wearing a stretch pants version of skinny jeans.

'Football Expert' Sean Astin Advises NFL Rookies

In the video, Astin sits down with this year's crop of rookies for some innocuous and sometimes funny banter.

Weight Watchers to Steal Jessica Simpson's Amazing Cleavage


A few months ago when Jessica Simpson tweeted, "Just taking a walk around the block. Street legal?", along with a picture of her pushing her new baby in a stroller, the world was treated to the enormity of her post-pregnancy boobs. Already a DD cup (according to her father, no less), Simpson ballooned to a much larger size, appearing double the size of her pre-pregnancy DDs. Of course, Simpson's breasts weren't the only part of her body that grew in size. Jessica is big all over now which, perhaps, is why she's hooked up with Weight Watchers again and can be seen in a new commercial for the brand.

In the ad, which crops most of Jessica out, Simpson says, "It's working. I'm on my way. And it feels amazing. Really I just want to be a better version of myself." If you ask us, Simpson looks great no matter what size she is.

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun


No, really. That's all they want. They don't want to be bogged down with the hassle of a career or a commitment to a long term relationship. No. They. Just. Wanna. Have. Fun. Well, at least according to Cyndi Lauper and jewelry brand Morellato which recently hooked up with Russian model Irina Shayk.

In a recent video, Irina prances around while enjoying her own beauty in the mirror, caressing her own deliciousness and seductively peering out at the viewer with a sultry look that would make even a seasoned Playboy photographer melt.

Chuck Norris Channels Ronald Reagan in Pro-Romney Video


In one of the oddest "celebrity" endorsements we've seen in a while, Chuck Norris and his wife, Gina, talk about a "growing concern." According to the Chuck and Gina, America is under attack and may be lost forever if we don't change the course in which we are headed.

That course change Norris advocates is a vote for Romney. As explanation for why Obama won in 2008, Gina says 30 million evangelical Christians stayed home on voting day which is why Obama won by 10 million votes. Are we to assume that all evangelical christians are republican. Maybe most are but her statement is a leap in logic.

Bar Refaeli Makes Flight Attendants Hate Their Bodies


Back in May we asked the ladies if watching Bar Refaeli frolic and writhe atop her bed, recline in a bathtub and not smoke a cigar make you want to run out and buy underwear for your man? Or does it just make your boyfriend horny and beg for a quickie?

We also wondered if watching Bar's perfection simply made women feel self-conscious about their own less-than-perfect body. Because, let's be honest, no one looks good when compared to a supermodel.

This week, after seeing Bar sporting what has to be the hottest flight attendant get up ever created, we wonder whether or not all flight attendants will become whimpering, self-conscious puddles of flotsam never again able to look at themselves in the mirror.
