Personal Space Invader Calls Attention to KLM Business Class

klm_personal_space.jpg

To illustrate the importance of personal space, KLM hired a personal space invader and set him lose in an airport. The space invader would locate people sitting or standing alone in un-crowded areas and rather than leaving the obligatory few seats or space between him and the traveler, he would go sit or stand right next to them. Strange looks and heebie jeebies ensued.

The stunt was done to promote the airline's new Europe Business Class which, apparently, promises travelers they will have an empty seat beside them. No doubt that feature comes at a steep price.

Khloe Kardashian Fails Again in T-Mobile Disaster

khloe_kardashian_tmobile.jpg

Dear Khloe Kardashian,

We're sure you're a wonderful person and all but can you please stop making commercials? They are horrific. And they are destroying what little career you may have. It was bad enough you did that train wreck with Lamar for Unbreakable but this new work you've done or T-Mobile may even be worse.

Yea, yea. We know you can do anything you want because, well, you're a Kardashian. But, please. Save yourself from future embarrassment. It's easy. Just say no. It's not like you need the money or anything. And do you really want to follow in Kim's footsteps?

Slightly Stalkerish Film Wins Raymond Weil Competition

raymond_weil.jpg

We've all done it. We don't like to admit it but we've all done it. We see a person we'd really like to meet and we plot, plan and generally do whatever it takes to insure we "randomly" bump into the person so we can strike up a conversation.

Or...we just have coincidental meetups.

Late last year, watchmaker Raymond Weil held a film competition that focused on "the relationship between man and watch." The winning entry was entitled My Watch My Destiny.

peta_fellate_cucumber.jpg

- Yawn. PETA films hot models fellating vegetables because, well, it's sexy and they're never going to get on the Super Bowl anyway.

- Don't let your partner interrupt your dreams.

- And in more PETA news, the organization wants to put up a Go Vegan billboard in Denver but two outdoor companies have rejected it. Something about cattlemen's inability to come.

- The call for entries is now open for the 2011 international ADC Student Brief competition, part of the ADC 90th Annual Awards. The deadline is March 18.

Sony Sponsors Avril Levigne's Lingerie-Fueled Transformation to Adulthood

avril_levigne_what_the_hell.jpg

Just like Debbie Gibson. Just like Britney Spears. Just like Christina Aguilera. Just like just like Miley Cyrus. And just like every other starlet who, at one point or another, decides she needs to "grow up," "become and adult," "shed her childhood" and show the world that she's no longer a little girl but a sexed-up super hottie who's ready to take on the world.

With her new single, What the Hell, Avril Levigne is now part of the "I'm not a child anymore" club. Of course, Levigne never really was of the child star ilk what with her so-called punk approach to music and decided avoidance of Disney.

Ray-Ban Endorses Idiotic Behavior on Subway

rayban_subway.jpg

As Copyranter properly surmises, only total douchebags wear sunglasses on the subway. Which pretty much sums up this latest Ray-Ban entry from Cutwater who, you may remember, has done all kinds of crazy videos for the brand.

This one has a guy doing the equivalent of walking backwards on an escalator except on a subway. Real? Fake? We really don't care anymore.
