Again people, can't we just enjoy something without crying racism at the drop of a hat? Some people are claiming this VW ad is racist because of all things, the folks in the commercial are talking with a Jamaican accent and they are not real Jamaicans. How dare they! Check it out.
"USA Today" has released a list of The Top 25 Super Bowl Ads of the Past 24 Years. The #1 spot went to the McDonald's ad from 1993, where Michael Jordan and Larry Bird played a ridiculous game of horse for a Big Mac.
If you need a quick laugh, search on YouTube for a new video called "Dumb as Stick". It's a dog trying DESPERATELY to take a stick home with him. But it's about five feet long, and the gate he's trying to go through is only three feet wide.
We have a "Don't Text and Drive" campaign going on right now, we should probably include walking as well. In Birmingham, England, a woman named "Laura Safe" fell into an icy CANAL. (--The high in Birmingham on the day it happened was 27 degrees.) Luckily, someone pulled her out, and she's okay. She later admitted that she was texting her boyfriend. She also happens to be a news reader for a radio station. Here she is reading a news report about her fall.
You know what a bidet is, right? That toilet-looking thing that sits next to your toilet in all the European hotels. It’s there because it's apparently pretty good at cleaning out your nether regions after going No. 2. Does the thought of a concentrated stream of water bum-rushing your bum sound good -- or weird? YouTube user JohnnyNapalm2001 decided to let us peak inside a dirty American's first-time use of a bidet. In a video titled "Testing out the Astor Fresh Water Bidet," Johnny samples all five levels of the bidet's power stream system. And how, exactly, do we get to see Johnny Napalm2001 do the test? Well, through his descriptions and facial expressions, which are enough, thank you. The video is more comedy than informational, though we do learn that the lower levels of of the five-level spray system seem to do a good enough job. However, the cat did seem to get frightened.
Mercedez-Benz has 'leaked' a commercial for one of its cars that stars model Kate Upton. It's titled "Kate Upton Washes Her Car" and we see her looking sexy while some football players wash her car. BORING!!
At a High School Wrestling match the other day in South Dakota, a couple of wrestlers were on the mat doing their thing when out of the sky....falls a huge specially designed light. Landed square on one of the guys. He'll require some stitches but could have been much worse. Wrestlers are the toughest kids going...no doubt.
On Sunday, thousands of people in 60 different cities around the world took part in something called the "No Pants Subway Ride", including about 4,000 people in New York. The whole point is to freak people out. Basically, you're supposed to get on a subway car with no pants on. And if anyone asks you what's going on, you have to pretend you just forgot to put pants on that morning.
The whole pranking drive-thru employees thing has been around a while, and it's basically just annoying at this point. But here's one that's actually pretty funny. Some guy made a costume that looked like the front seat of his car, so that when he got in and drove around, it looked like the car was driving itself. Then he went through a bunch of McDonald's drive thrus and freaked out the employees.
Every once in awhile we come across something that is pretty cool and creative....when it's part of a proposal for marriage that no one saw coming it's even better. Some goofy guy in Australia proposed to his girlfriend by putting himself in a terrible spoof of a boy band video, which he played for her at a Christmas party. The lyrics were about comparing her to an abacus. (--The last verse was about getting married. And when it ended, he got down on one knee, and she said yes.) Check out the video.
You know the whole "til death do you part" thing at weddings? A couple in San Diego almost set a world record on Monday . . . during their ceremony aboard a HOT AIR BALLOON. Right after they did the vows, the balloon got hit by a strong gust of wind, and the pilot had to crash land in someone's backyard. Fourteen people were on board, and one of them was recording with their cell phone camera when it happened. The video shows them hit the ground pretty hard, tip over, and then drag for a few feet.Luckily no one was seriously hurt, and they all made it to the reception. They were even laughing about it afterward.
