Kids and Glory Holes to Win Doritos Crash the Super Bowl


Doritos has unveiled its five finalists for its Crash the Super Bowl ad competition. Of the five finalists, two are quite lame and, oddly, are based on the exact same scenario. It's quite clear we won't see either Office Thief or Breakroom Ostrich during the game.

The other three, Time Machine, Finger Cleaner and Cowboy Kid all show promise.

Old Spice 'Momsong' Ad Is the Best Weirdest Ad You Will Ever See


To a teenager there's nothing worse than having your mother creep into your social life. Yet, that's exactly what a group of moms does in this new Old Spice ad called Momsong. In the ad, the moms break into song and lament the fact their little boys are turning into grown men.

The ad debuted last Friday and already has over one million views on YouTube. It is, by far, one of the craziest ads we have ever seen.

Jen Selter's Amazing Ass Landed Her Endorsement Deals

Selter, who began taking belfies (butt selfies) of her ass after she began working out following high school, has endorsement deals with New York water brand NY20 as well as nutrition supplement company Game Plan Nutrition. She's also had offers from Nike, Lulumon and New Balance.

Even Fidel Castro Won't Stop You From 'Finishing" Too Fast


If there's one thing PETA's good at, it's leveraging every last sexual connotation to prevent you from eating meat. But maybe this connotation is the best yet because it has to do with meat (both kinds) and the fact that eating meat (the animal kind, not the human kind) can apparently cause men to "release" to quickly. Watch as this one guy conjures Fidel Castro while aiming to go long with a hottie busy polishing his knob.
