There are no two visages more recognizable in contemporary rap than Kanye West and Jay-Z. So in the marketing push for 'Watch the Throne,' the duo's upcoming collaboration, it only makes sense to fuse the megastars' mugs together.
After a days-long duel in which original Old Spice Guy Isaiah Mustafa and challenger Fabio battled for the seat of Old Spice's official spokesman, a winner has emerged. During the battle, both parties released countless YouTube videos charming their fans all over the web. Watch the finale to see who claimed the crown:
Washington Post columnist Gene Weingarten knows that flying is uncomfortable enough (strict carry-on rules, awkward TSA patdowns) without a rude invasion of space by your fellow passengers. Cramped quarters on most airplanes make it downright inhumane to recline your seat, minimizing the already-meager leg room of the person behind you.
Who says airplane safety has to be a somber matter? These airlines have fun with the tired in-flight procedure, from rapping through oxygen mask instructions to demonstrating proper storage of overhead luggage in the buff. C
If you're a frequent flyer, you've probably zoned out during quite a few airplane safety demonstrations. Pegasus, a Turkish airline, brilliantly eschewed the usual bored flight attendants for some seriously adorable kids. The tots, dressed as attendants, passengers and even an aviator-clad pilot, walk us through proper seatbelt buckling and how to operate an oxygen mask with panache.
Can't wait until 2012 for more 'Mad Men'? We've got two suggestions to whet your appetite: Emotions with Jon Hamm, a Tumblr dedicated to the expressive man behind stoic lead Don Draper, and this animated re-imagining of the show's opening credits, from the mind of illustrator Paul Rogers.
The sleek, colorful images of the characters' favorite props (a typewriter, a pack of Lucky Strikes, Don's Coupe de Ville, Joan Holloway's pen necklace, etc.) are enough to make ousted art director Sal Romano jealous.
NewsCorp executive Rebekah Brooks, forced to resign from her post after her division's 'News of the World' phone hacking scandal, has been treated to internet fame thanks to readily-available streams of her testimonies in London's parliament. And since Brooks resigned on a Friday (June 15), the trolls couldn't help but give her the Rebecca Black treatment.
A clever YouTuber put together a parody of Black's viral hit 'Friday,' with Brooks singing about her shattered reputation ("Friday, Friday / Gotta resign on Friday"). The song also includes jabs at NewsCorp and head honcho Rupert Murdoch.
Morning commutes just got a lot more fun in Utrecht. Recent renovations to a train station in the Overvecht neighborhood of the Netherlands city included the installation of a slide (their transit authority calls it a "transfer accelerator"), which passengers can ride to the platform instead of taking the adjacent stairs.
When the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, a Canadian Football League team, scored against the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, they eschewed typical touchdown celebrations like chicken dances and got their plank on instead. The offensive team drop into the rigid plank pose that's been sweeping the globe (and more recently, fellow athletes like Dwight Howard and Gilbert Arenas).
Cutest rescue ever! Like a scene from a Pixar adventure, Ferris the Corgi embarked on a mission to free his sister, Dot Matrix, from a cage. After assessing her enclosure, Ferris neatly unhooked the clasp on the cage's door and Dot scrambled (well, ambled) out. See the great escape below:
Beyoncé's choreographed flash mobs are the hottest ticket in music right now. First, B surprised a group of kids mastering her 'Move Your Body' moves in their school's auditorium and on Thursday, she snuck up on a group of shoppers at a Harlem, New York Target taking a dance lesson from her choreographer.
The crowd was dancing to her latest single, 'Countdown,' when Beyoncé emerged (to hysterical screams, naturally) and joined in, too.
Orlando Magic teammates Dwight Howard and Gilbert Arenas tried their hands at planking -- a bizarre, imported Australian fad wherein people lie face-down and absolutely rigid on strange surfaces. Howard and Arenas documented their best planks, with surfaces including a vending machine and luxury cars, on Twitter. And, yes, planking is better when done by super-tall basketball players. Check out some of their best shots below:
