So here’s a “Falling Obama” game where the point is to smack Obama around. The six months before the midterms are going to be GREAT!

Looks like small films with poor revenue-generating moxie have a whole new way to look at being profitable:
“The Hurt Locker is set to make more money from settlements with BitTorrent users than it ever made at the box office”
Looking for a solid dose of weekend outrage? Well, click on through to the outragetastic Center for American Progress report “Making Money on Oil Disasters.” A few choice bits to bring the blood up:
“Exxon didn’t fail in its response efforts 20 years ago alone. BP actually joined Exxon in its response efforts—officially BP PLC, the same firm working to stop the gusher in the Gulf of Mexico now… BP owned a controlling interest in the Alaska oil industry consortium that was required to write a cleanup plan and respond to the spill two decades ago…investigations that followed the Valdez disaster blamed both Exxon and Alyeska for a response that was bungled on many levels.”
Oh yeah, it gets worse. But there is a great idea at the end:
Seriously, have you? Her family has been looking for her for three years.
“Katie is 35 years old, 5’ 7” tall, approximately 115 lbs., with brown hair and eyes. She was last seen wearing white pants, a white shirt and flip flops. Her clothes were soiled and she appeared “unkempt”. She is also thinner than what this picture portrays. She is in need of medical attention and we have to find her. We also know she found comfort in praying, and there is a very strong possibility she would be frequenting churches for shelter and prayer. She would also be frequenting any shelters that provide food as she had little money on her at the time of her disappearance.”
Good lord. I mean… I mean…. what’s there to say about this Tweet? I’m at a loss.
By now eveyone knows about these preposterous (and kinda’ awesome) Huggies jeans diapers. Their awesomeness is in their limited edition-ness.
Well, of course the jiapers have a commercial and it’s so-so except for the tagline “The Coolest You’ll Look Pooping Your Pants” which certainly gave some copywriting a giant boner to submit.
Turns out ABC Family doesn’t want to carry the ad as it “objected to screen text at the end of the spot that included the word ‘pooping,’” It’s curious that ABC would be worried about a commercial suggesting less than up-and-up behavior when the network’s own internal ads have, you know, shown elves cutting out naked women.
Good God, the “Devore for California” gang went apeshit with this thing:
In Wisconsin, a lot of people live in crummy little row apartments which do not provide them with lawns, the ideal places to BBQ. What do they do instead? Grill out in their crummy little row garages. This photo was taken right outside my window.
The funny thing is, despite living in a cheap apartment complex, that stainless steel grill is like $900.
Everyone’s panties are bunched over an Italian ad that appropriates Hitler. The brand has a follow up ad on the way using Chairman Mao.
After the jump, a less than comprehensive survey of Mao-Hitler advertising.
