Here's an interesting way to get some attention to a public service announcement.
The folks at Nestle Fitness created a campaign called #CheckYourSelfie for Breast Cancer Awareness month.
The theme of the promo is simple: "Your breasts are checked out every day."
To prove that, they fixed a small camera on the partially exposed bra of an actress who then goes about her daily business, all the while recording the folks who glance at or even ogle her breasts. The video's under 90 seconds long and shows three dozen check-out instances.
Others are checking yours. "So, when was the last time you checked your own?"
Check out the promotional video... And then the explanation of the whole thing below that.
At first, it sounds like something played strictly for laughs.
Ashton Kutcher, pretending to be a product engineer for Lenovo, conducting focus groups to get feedback on the company's products.
You figure he'll goof around, put the members of the focus groups in awkward situations, and then reveal that they've been pranked.
Not so. In this clip with a group of seniors, Ashton manages to keep the conversation light and flowing without pushing for laughs, so the laughs come from the participants and the situation with Ashton simply riding herd.
Nicely played, Mr. Kutcher. And Lenovo.
This is the first in a weekly series, so be sure to go back and catch some more.
“… I can’t relocate. I have two babies under 4. Being a mother and wife comes first and I just can not uproot my children and separate the family by moving away. I will miss this job desperately and wish everyone the absolute best.”
Nice simple sweet resignation letter.
Not the stuff Hollywood is used to.
The producers are probably sitting in a bungalow right now, trying to figure Alyssa’s angle in all this.
Just in time for Halloween, archaeologists claim that they‘ve discovered a dungeon that held Vlad the Impaler.
Vlad, in case you missed that day in whatever class teaches these things, was the real-life inspiration for Dracula.
The dungeon was found in Tokat Castle in Turkey, where Vlad was held by the Turks as a political prisoner in the 15th century.
One of the archaeologists on the dig said that the castle is “completely surrounded by secret tunnels. It is very mysterious. It is hard to estimate in which room Dracula was kept, but he was around here.”
Sounds less like an historical find than a prelude to a haunted castle tour, doesn’t it?
On Wednesday, just two days after playing his final baseball game at Fenway Park in Boston, Derek Jeter has launched his new enterprise.
He’s the founding publisher of a digital company called The Players’ Tribune. A web site where athletes can tell their stories.
All throughout his farewell MLB tour, Jeter was criticized – okay, not all the time, but often enough – for not showing a lot of emotion.
In a statement released about the new venture, he says he’s not a robot. “Neither are the other athletes who at times might seem unapproachable. We all have emotions. We just need to be sure our thoughts will come across the way we intend.”
It will be a way, he says, for athletes to connect with fans, without any filters.
First Amanda Bynes, now Michael Phelps! The Olympian was arrested for a DUI yesterday. He released a statement, saying, "Earlier this morning, I was arrested and charged with DUI, excessive speeding and crossing double lane lines. I understand the severity of my actions and take full responsibility. I know these words may not mean much right now but I am deeply sorry to everyone I have let down." Michael Phelps's blood alcohol content was nearly twice the legal limit. This is his SECOND DUI arrest.
Who would have seen these two couples going out together?! Joe Manganiello and Sofia Vergara were spotted enjoying a double date with his Magic Mike co-star Channing Tatum and his wife Jenna Tatum. They met up at a local bar in Savannah, Georgia and had some drinks. Well, they all have one thing in common: THEY ARE SUPER HOT! Hot people stay together!
File this under the EWWW documents! Gene Simmons believes in the five-second rule a little too much, because while he was eating a piece of his hamburger at the airport, it fell on the ground! Well, not only did he pick the meat up off the floor, but he put it right into his mouth and ate it! AFTER IT FELL ON THE GROUND! I don't think ANY burger is that amazing!
Well this isn't settling! Amanda Bynes was arrested for a DUI over the weekend and it turns out her parents were in the dark about her arrest! On top of that, they have no idea where she is or what she's been doing since her conservatorship ended. Amanda Bynes' father Rick said he and his wife learned about Amanda Byne's arrest from the media and they weren't the ones who bailed her out! They need to step in!
Tracy Morgan is fighting back and attacking Walmart after the company blamed him for the injuries he got in that car crash that involved one of their truck drivers back in June! Walmart claimed that because Tracy Morgan didn't wear a seatbelt, it's HIS fault that he was hurt so badly. Here's what Tracy Morgan has to say: "I can't believe Wal-Mart is blaming me for an accident that they caused. My friends and I were doing nothing wrong. I want to thank my fans for sticking with me during this difficult time!" I hope he kicks their butt in court!
This is pretty cool of George Clooney! He put his wedding pictures on the auction block and a tabloid was one of the winners! But all of the money is going to charities that he supports! The money will be going to several human rights charities and every photo in each of the magazines that won the auction will be saving a life! I wish my pictures could do that!
Once a cheater, always a cheater? Justin Bieber is back together with Selena Gomez but he was spotted getting a champagne dinner with Kendall Jenner last night! The issue? Selena Gomez doesn't like the Jenner girls and cut of all ties with them, calling them TOXIC! So why would Justin Bieber disrespect her by hanging out with Kendall? Well Kendall Jenner's reps say that the two of them are just long-time friends. Do you believe that?
