adidas Originals: all Originals Represent (2012) :60 (Canada)

adidas Originals continues its love of street, style, sport and neon-wearing teenagers in this its latest "Represent," spot. Courtesy of Montreal hot stars Sid Lee no less.

It features Nicki Minaj, Jeremy Scott, Big Sean, 2NE1, Kids These Days, some flavors of the month, and Derrick Rose representing their crew. Wait, Derrick Rose? Is he trying his hand at fashion, too? I guess Beckham was too busy that week.

"Can't do it, mate. I gotta scare the willies out of some punters when they're in a photo booth.

There are some fantastic shots throughout, and now Kidsleepy is missing Rio's wavy sidewalks, coconut water and caipirinhas. No doubt the teens will love it.

Durex win the Olympics - in the cheeky headline event.

Usain - Not every man wants to be the fastest in the world reads this Durex pster, and playfully aranges a bunch of condoms as if they were the olympic rings. If this ad is for real, and Walesonline says it is, then Durex must have paid quite the buck to be an Olympic sponsor. Considering there's a lot of sex going on in the Olympic village between all those physically tip-top people, it's not a bad idea to have some condoms in your back pocket.

Nathan's Hot Dog Hut. Or: why Holland, Michigan sucks.

Just when you think social media stunts can't get any lower, and no good will ever come of it all, a potential opportunity shows up to right the scales of justice. Or something.

Last week, a 13 year-old boy named Nathan Duszynski set up a hot dog cart to help raise money for his disabled parents. His father has multiple sclerosis and his mother has epilepsy. He went through all the necessary steps, even visiting city hall with his mom to make sure everything was kosher.

But then the minute he set up shop, boom. Some bureaucratic moron came to shut the whole party down before he even sold his first red hot.
