GSD&M becomes GSD&M Idea City

Today, GSD&M takes on a new name - GSD&M Idea City.

When GSD&M staffers arrive at work today they'll be surprised with a visit from one client, PGA Tour Commissioner Tim Finchem. They'll also be treated to video well wishes from bold-name friends Bill Clinton and author Jim Collins. It's all in celebration of changes in its day-to-day management and the hanging of a new shingle. As of today, the company known for 36 years as GSD&M becomes GSD&M's Idea City.

Bullet proof baby hoax viral gets lots of press attention.

Sometime I find it just a tad depressing how easy it seems to be to trick journalists into writing about your viral as if it was the real deal. Take Bullet Proof Baby shows a woman shooting at a kevlar-dressed pram with her own baby in it. The site not only claims to sell everything from toddler tazers to baby riot gear, but also that "Stella decided to establish 'bullet proof baby' when her first son, Randy, was nearly killed in a drive by shooting in 2004."

Naturally the press just ate this up, a mother who shoots with an automatic rifle at her own baby? Who wouldn't love that story? Looks like everyone who got the pressrelease wrote about it, Metro.uk, bounty.uk, slashgear and many more. A few have updated their stories now that it's been revealed that the viral is for a film, so aftonbladet.se published a correction, as did Raising Kids, Nine MSN and the Daily Telegraph Australia. Even the presurfer fell for it.

Tom Ford Perfume For Men - sold by hot wet naked women.

No strangers to controversy Tom Ford decided to launch his new scent by placing the perfume bottles on the shaven genitals of very naked models. No more G's shaved into pubic hair, this time we have no pubic hair at all! Does this mean it smells like pee? I'm not sure, but Terry Richardson probably had a grand old time instructing the model to squeeze the perfume bottle between her breasts as if she was in a porn movie. Whomever the fluffer... sorry... makeup artists was must have been amused too, likely called in to re-apply the shiny oil on her skin every five seconds.

And then they all went home and did more coke. True story.
