Paris Gets a Little Too Spicy

We all know (but don’t necessarily love) Paris Hilton. Goofing up on “The Simple Life”, attempting to survive “The House of Wax”, and being so ‘blond’ it’s frightening. It’s a rarity to find her doing something that has helped this world move forward (of course, that depends on what you think moves this day and age in that direction). Did she finally find her purpose in…of all places…Carl’s Jr.?

Well, now they've created a campaign for Firefox over at, and these films received 300,000 views in the first day they say. The films are predicatble, boring, pointless and not very 'viral' in the sense that I wouldn't pass it on to anyone.
