This Cosmetics Company Thinks Putting on Makeup is Like Having an Orgasm

benefit_cosmetics_orgasm.png

Nowhere near as funny as the original, Benefit Cosmetics is out with "Real Women Don't Fake It," a video whose subject matter is exactly what you think it is. But it doesn't come close to the hilarity of the original which actually kept you guessing a bit longer than does this sophomore effort.

Lynx Says Women Want Men And Boys (In the Same Body)

lynx_man_boy.png

In a strange new, Droga5 Sydney-created commercial for Lynx (Axe), we are told women want men and boys in the same body. Why? Because we are told boys dream of being men and men dream of being boys and, yes, women long for both...at the same time...in the same body.

So like Lynx is marketing to the man-child and they think using their product will attract ladies who want a man and a boy...at the same time...in the same body?

Ladies, care to comment?

This Mitsubishi is So Cheap You'll Have Enough Leftover Money to Hire an Opera Trio For Your Commute

mitsubishi_mirage_opera.png

There are many things with which you can amuse yourself during your commute to work but hiring an opera singer to accompany you to work every day is, well, out of the realm of normalcy. But not for those who own the new, 2014 Mitsubishi Mirage which get 64 miles per gallon and costs just $12,498 and, it would seem, have the extra cash laying around to hire the aforementioned opera singer for commuting entertainment.

The ad comes to us from Canadian agency john st.

Man Attempts to Sell One Pixel For $1 Million, Hopes For Million Dollar Homepage Fame

guy_who_fucked_million_dollar_homepage.png

This is so not news but neither was Alex Tew's Million Dollar Homepage...until it actually became a million dollar homepage. So, stranger things have happened which is why we're going to tell you about The Guy Who Fucked the Million Dollar Homepage. Yes, you read that right.

A guy named Bernd Zikulnig, a pilot, aims to sell one pixel for $1 million. If you recall, Alex Tew sold one million pixels for $1 each. How Zikulnig thinks he can get one advertiser to spend $1 million on one pixel (which you won't even be able to see) is questionable but, then again, it's not the pixel that has value. It's the publicity that surrounds the stunt.

pistachios_prancercize.png

Oh the internet. It gives us so many wonderful things. So many things we'd would never have experience before like, well, like the Prancercise® Lady. If you haven't heard of her, her name is Joanna Rohrback and she does this exercise thing which aims to "create the most satisfying, holistic and successful fitness program one could hope to experience." And it has nothing to do with riding a horse.

Anyway, Rohrback, along with Dennis Rodman, an elephant, King Kong and, yes, Norman Bates, can be seen in the upcoming Wonderful Pistachios Get Crackin' campaign which debuts today.

The campaign, which began in 2007, has featured such cultural oddities as Honey Badger, Snooki, Snoop Lion, Keyboard Cat, The Village People and, yes, the Secret Service.

In this kitschy but hilarious ad for Russian telecommunications company, Beeline, we are reminded of the digital divide that sometimes occurs between generations.

Laura Spencer French Kisses 'The Rainbow' in Skittles Ad

skittles_french_rainbow.png

Remember when you used to swap gum when kissing? Wait, you never did that? It was just me? Am I the only gross one in the crowd? Do I need to go see a psychoanalyst to determine how my childhood antics steered me towards a career in which I bitterly bitch and rant about things like some kind of depressed loser angry at the entire world for dealing me this deck of cards?

God, I need help!

Facebook Bans Boobs Again, Can't Tell Difference Between Birds And Boobs

booby-bird-bra.jpg

Let's just put it out there. Facebook is very puritanical when it comes to breastfeeding and boobs. The social network just can't handle the fact they are a part of life. The most recent "offense" to Facebook's distaste for boobs was illustrated when it banned an an for Christmas Island's Bird'n'Nature Week.

Wait, what? Yes, you read that right. Facebook banned an ad promoting a nature appreciation week. The ad from the Australian island invited eco-tourists to come appreciate the island's offerings, specifically, the Red-footed Booby, the Brown Booby and the Abbott Booby. Yes, they banned the ad because they didn't like the fact these birds are referred to as Boobies.

OK, OK, it might have been the ad's suggestive headline which read,"Some gorgeous shots here of some juvenile boobies." Facebook claims the ad breached the site's guidelines by "addressing the age, gender or sexual orientation of users on Facebook." Wait. So Facebook users are birds? We're confused.

Two Cops, One Hole: The Worst 'Viral Video' You Will Ever See

two_cops_one_hole.png

Jesus. Where do we start. OK, the easy stuff first. At 2:32, this "viral video," created by Hamburg-based Kinematograph 27/7, is two minutes longer than it needs to be. Second, these are supposed to be cops in NYC? With those accents? Third, why would a cop be such an asshole to a couple of onlookers? Fourth, who the hell would stick their arm into a dark hole without knowing what's in it? And fifth, who the hell takes a cow for a walk in New York city? Watch at your own risk.
