White House Gate Crashers Invite Industry to Agency Party


Remember the Salahi's? Michaele and Tareq? They were the famed gate crasher couple who managed to sneak into a White House party in the November 2009. Perhaps wanting to clean up their act or wash the filth of Real Housewives of D.C. off their skin, the couple agreed to appear in a video promoting the holiday party of Herndon, VA-based White + Partners.

In the promotion, Michaele and Tareq riff about the fact no one actually carries around an actual printed invitation when they go to a party and make it clear we won't need one either if we want to attend the White + partners holiday party.

Guys, Would You Wipe Your Face With Your Balls?


No matter how close you are to someone, you don't want to pick up a towel and wipe your face with the same part of the towel with which another has wiped their ass. That's the premise behind True Clean towel and this highlighting the disgusting alternative.

The :90 video is :60 longer than the :30 it should be but it's humorous enough. And pretty disgusting if you think about it the next time you pick up a bathroom towel. Even more disgusting is the fact the shower curtain in this video is the exact same one we have in our bathroom.

Gross. Don't get us started on shower curtains. Particularly hotel shower curtains!
