Stoere Vrouwen strip for a more humane fashion industry

"Stoere Vrouwen" have done it again. You may remember the strip done by actress Victoria Koblenko a couple of years ago, and then the co-ordinated stripping events in five Dutch cities where women would get down and take their clothes off for a more humane fashion industry. The motto is reminiscent to PETA's "I'd rather go naked than wear fur" as it's "Better naked than created by exploitation".

#NotABugSplat puts giant portraits of children in the landscapes targeted by drones

Notabugsplat is a giant art installation project created by an artist collective in Pakistan and the US, including the french artist JR. By rolling out a really large image of a child's face near dwellings, the artists hop to jolt drone operators sitting thousands of miles away who refer to kills as BugSplats into realizing that there's great human loss in each strike.

Samsung's Obama and Ortiz selfie sneakily breaks all the ad rules

Ortiz snapped a selfie of him and Obama holding the jersey he gifted to the president, and all hell broke loose. You see, Red Sox slugger David Ortiz has a deal with Samsung to use Samsung phones, but as he told the Boston Globe, the tweeted selfies with famous people and current Presidents isn't part of that deal. Boston Globe reporter asked Ortiz straight: “Did Samsung pay you any more money for taking that photo?”

Testicular Cancer waxing ad a bit like FatBoy Slim "Bushes" video

Did anyone else feel that the setup of hot waxing of the nether regions while filming the facial reactions in the recent Testicular Cancer Awareness ad was a bit familiar? No? Just me? Perhaps, but all I could think of was the 90s hit from Fat Boy Slim - Bushes - and the music video that came with it. They say that as many as 74 women and 2 men agreed to have their faces filmed while undergoing a bikini line wax in order to make the Fat Boy Slim music video.

Taco Bell now serving signature cocktails in select stores

With all the hoopla about Taco Bell's new breakfasts, some more interesting news slipped under the radar.

In a recent Reddit AMA Taco Bell President Brian Niccol said his dream would be to add beer to the menu. It seems he was being coy. Because if their Hollywood location is any indication, they're not only serving beer, but speciality cocktails, too.

Sorry Taco Bell, Jack in The Box already talked to Ronald McDonald

Whats up, 2002? Despite Taco Bell's brand new ads touting their breakfast so yummy that Ronald McDonald likes it, Jack in the Box already explored that idea. In 2002. Go on, check it out.

What's amazing to me is that, since Taco Bell and Jack in The Box are both on the west coast, somehow people (account people, strategists, etc) failed to notice.

First Kiss is not only an ad, but also a copy of Canal Plus ca 1994

We blinked, and suddenly there's an uproar on the web that "the touching viral video of strangers kissing was "just" an ad for clothes". Wait a minute, did WREN Fall 14 in the title not give it away? Wasn't it glaringly obvious in the cross section of pretty semi-celebs doing all the snogging? Did the line "well, you're an actress..." NOT clue you in?
