Longhorn Steakhouse grills the first Winter Wonder Steak

While the hipsters at my agency all have the youtube yule logs on in the background, Longhorn and Rokkan have done them one better by launching the world's first Yule Steak. Could you imagine really keeping a steak on that long? Yikes. It'd be charcoal by the time it was done. Either way sit back and get into the holiday spirit with the link below. Strangely enough I'm now hungry. Gotta go to lunch.

Jews make everything funnier. Even youtube.

To promote Jerusalem-based non-profit Comedy For Change Tel-Aviv-based digital agency Hooligans, created Go Hora! It basically takes music videos on Youtube and mixes it with random Jews doing traditional dances. Surprisingly, the beats of songs like Nicki Minaj's "Anaconda" sync up to the other dances.
It's kind of like Dark Side Of The Moon syncing up to The Wizard of Oz, except there are no munchkins and its more Jewish.
