Shell Is Prepared - promises not to Sue the Yes Men & Greenpeace for "lets go" Artic fail campaign

We've already asked Does Greenpeace use social media better than Shell? and the answer is yes judging by how many people I've seen talking about the "Lets go" campaign and the "Shell is prepared" twitter account today.

The Yes Men have waved their magic wand, creating a remarkably accurate looking website called ArcticReady.com pretending it's from Shell Oil, and now they've upped the ante with @ShellisPrepared from "Shell Media Team". oh haha. Our favorite tweets from Shell Is Prepared (because people are truly suckered into believing this is real)

Earlier we retweeted the Pantone Merkel which is all kinds of funny, and now we found via Nextnature that these images of our rainbow-leader were collected by Noortje van Eekelen as part of her Spectacle of Tragedy project. The real tragedy is in the cut of that suit-jacket.
"Welcome to the Visual Database of the European Show and its Leading Actors" reads the tumblr Noortje has set up and there's even a full page of Berlusconi’s favorite girls. Trust me to find the titty.

Varvatos Fall campaign featuring Paul Weller.

It happens. Mods and Rockers need to cash in. As we've pointed out here, the well is running dry thanks to online piracy. Rock n' roll don't pay the bills any more.

So it only makes sense that Jam/Style Council all around awesome Mod revivalist frontman Paul Weller would want to get his dandy on for John Varvatos. Plus it keeps him in fun clothes. And the man does look good in clothes.

 

Launching Menopause Products With Poise.

Ad Shop Organic and Kimberly Clark has just dropped what it dubs as a "taboo shattering conversation," around its line of products geared toward women who are going through menopause.

Under the name of Poise the site includes Q&A (fine) user generated content under the title "Menopause Stories" (tmi) and 360° product demos (gross.)

In addition to the usual kinds of social media suspects, this begs several questions.
