Creepy Bar Scene Hook Up Explains Big Data Perfectly

Girls_Are_Assholes.jpg

If you ever need to explain big data to someone and demonstrate how powerful it can be in advancing a cause, be sure to point them to this Girls Are Assholes video in which a guy, seemingly with access to some kind of big data warehouse, has all the data he needs to pick up a girl in less than 30 seconds.

Really. Forget all the business buzzwords and mumbo jumbo. This creepy dude has it down to a science. If only consumers were as pliable and compliant and the woman in this ad, brands would be getting laid whenever they felt like it.

Microsoft has, today, pulled a video it posted Friday entitled " A fly on the wall in Cupertino" in which two actors present to "T", aka a fictitious TIm Cook (which is this video actually looks more like Steve Jobs), what they've been working on leading up to last week's Apple iPhone event.

The video has been pulled from official channels but still floats around and can be viewed. Of the video, Microsoft issued a statement which read,"The video was intended to be a light-hearted poke at our friends from Cupertino. But it was off the mark, and we've decided to pull it down."

weiner_mini.jpg

Having a bit of fun at the expense of sext-o-holic Anthony Weiner, the folks over at Butler, Shine, Stern & Partners created this MINI ad which they tweeted from a Twitter account they created called @CarlosDMotor. "Wanna get your hands on my stick?"

The ad and the tweet mocks the pseudonym Weiner chose for himself, Carlos Danger, when he sent naked pictures of himself to younger women.

With just 37 followers, the @CarlosDMotor Twitter account isn't gaining much ground but, hey, it's a nice diversion on a Friday.

It them gets really creepy when Creepy Dude comes front and center to completely disrobe. It closes by asking, "Why did you start thinking you were beautiful?"

OK, right up front let's be clear -- this is not a real ad. However, the message it sends -- sharks are attracted to blood -- is well demonstrated. The "ad" appears in the very rotten film Movie 43 and is for Tampax. It urges woman to make sure their tampons don't leatkso, ya know, they don't get sniffed out by a giant shark that will tear you a part with spooftastic, Jaws-style hilarity.
