2. Paris, for In-N-Out’s “I had one margarita (and) was starving because I had not eaten all day. Maybe I was speeding a little bit and I got pulled over. I was just really hungry and I wanted to have an In-N-Out Burger” Campaign

Can’t wait to see what she does with The Burger King!

The Funniest YouTube Video Evs

by

The only thing we want to say about the following video is that we openly wept with laughter upon multiple viewings. Perhaps because we react the exact same way when delivering the weather with a roach on our pant.

(also, yes, it’s iFilm now, but only because the youtube one kept going down.)

Celebrity Quiz: What Is Scarlett Hiding In There?

by

Scarlett.JPG

Take a look at Scarlett Johanssen at The Black Dahlia premiere in LA last night. Any ideas as to what she’s hiding in there? We’re going with one gigantic, price-club sized emergency maxi pad. A lady should never leave the house without one.

Leave your guesses in the comments!

Chelsea Clinton Serviced by Bodyguards

by

ChelseaClinton.JPGThe following gossip item is so ridiculous… and yet, for some reason, we really hope it’s true. From Popbitch:

US newspapers claim to have a story that Chelsea Clinton has been getting, er, serviced by her two Secret Service minders. At the same time. The man and woman appointed to protect the ex-First Daughter are said to be in trouble for taking that to mean they should get this up close and personal with their charge. So far the threesome are keeping quiet but with US service personnel getting blown up on a daily basis, shouldn’t we just be happy that some of them are just getting blown?

First of all, we are dying to see what her bodyguards look like, but hours of Myspace trolling have produced zero results. But more importantly… ya’ll just know Chelsay Clintone is a freak! I mean, check out her ex-boyf — you guys, they’re practically twins. Kink-ay! And camman… she is Bill Clinton‘s daughter ya’ll. While she may have been handed the God-given beauty of sexpot mother Hillary, her sex drive is all Bill. We want to see Chels waving her freak flag come this Christmas, or else… she will have to continue doing so behind closed doors.

LISTEN UP: I’m Not Afraid of You…

  • And the award for “Best. Album. Title. Ever.” goes to Yo La Tengo, for their genius I’m Not Afraid of You, And I’ll Beat Your Ass. Go to Merry Swankster to see if the songs are as just as good.
  • The Supreme Council of Music Bloggers has elevated the status of Beirut, Cold War Kids, The Breakdown and a few other indie bands to label-worthy, and ProductShopNYC has tracks to celebrate.
  • Itstoolong is all in German, which is why it’s a good thing that “Joanna Newsom’s harp-strumming elven fairy warbling” is a language everyone can understand.
  • The Shins have postponed the release of their new album to January 2007, but you can still have your lives changed by three new live tracks over at YANP.
  • I’ve really been digging the Regina Spektor song “On the Radio” lately, and think you should go download it at All Things Go! for the “November Rain” reference alone.

Project Runway: Ding-Dong, The Vince is Dead

by

ProjRun41.JPGOur weekly addiction, Project Runway, delivered the couture goods last night. Our contestants are still in Paris, and kicked off the show with a relaxing Parisian meal hosted by fantasy father figure Timmy “the Tim-Tim” Gunn. (On a related note, please read this love letter addressed to Tim that I think speaks for all of us.) This week’s challenge was to design a haute couture gown — and while there have been a lot of dress-making challenges this season, we were still excited. Though we do wish they could’ve stepped the challenge up a little. Like making a dress out of nothing but discarded office furniture and sandfleas.

First of all, and we’re not embarassed to admit this, we loooooved Kayne‘s dress. While the judges served up a steaming plate of guff, we found the detailing and diagonal corset to be stunning. There is always the possibility that in person it looked like Liberace farted all over it, but we have to hand it to Kayne: The man knows how to iron a gold-mesh boost-ay. We liked Jeffrey‘s yellow-plaid ahn-somb, and were not blinded with Nicolas Rage over his win.

Ashton Kutcher Wants Friends His Own Age

by

kutch.jpgA celebrity with a MySpace account is nothing new. Everybody from Jenna Jameson to Jon Lovitz has one. So when MetaDish pointed out that Ashton Kutcher has a page, we didn’t think anything of it. Until we delved deeper.

A self-described “28 [year-old] with a step daughter in college”, it’s obvious that Ashton is trying to be just like the rest of us. He includes a picture of his favorite football player (Walter Payton), as well as pics of him with his bud, his dog, and his famous movie star wife. The Kutch is one of us! See for yourself. While you’re there, here are a few other things to look for:

  • Ashton calls Kevin Costner “a stud”.
  • Not even Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore are able to get good seats at a football game.
  • He won’t refer to his page as “my space” because MySpace totally sold out.
  • Ashton LOL’s like the rest of us!
  • And suprisingly he only has a few hundred friends. Though he’d probably have more if not for The Butterfly Effect.

Not All Sponsors Pulling Out of Survivor: Race Wars

by

CHEERIOS1.JPGThe new season of Survivor: Race Wars is facing some sponsor trouble. Apparently, companies aren’t super “jazzed” about the idea of pitting four tribes — each made up of a single race (white, black, asian and hispanic) — against one another. Companies such as Proctor & Gamble, Coca-Cola and Johnson & Johnson are acting like total p.c. a-holes, and have all pulled out of sponshorship deals with the television show.

But fret not, multi-billion dollar conglomo CBS. There is still money to be made. We’ve compiled a list of products that would all be perfectly suited to advertise on Survivor: Race Wars. Take a look:

‘Idol’ Singer Clay Aiken May Serve Bush

by

aikenbush.jpg(As everyone is freaking out about utterly unsuprising developments in Paris Hilton’s ongoing struggle with existence, news stories as AMAZING as this one are in danger of falling through the cracks, which is why we have decided to present this to you in its entirety, un-edited with the exception of our bolding emphasis, and without further comment. Also, the headline above is the actual one used in the story.)

RALEIGH, N.C. – Clay Aiken is in line to be named to the President’s Committee for People with Intellectual Disabilities, the White House said Wednesday.

Aiken, a Raleigh native who gained fame as a runner-up on “American Idol,” once worked as a YMCA counselor.

The committee’s Web site said it advises the president on issues pertaining to people with intellectual disabilities. The committee was established in 1961 by President John Kennedy as the President’s Panel on Mental Retardation.

A White House press release said President Bush intends to make the appointment. Officials did not say when. The singer’s new album, “A Thousand Different Ways,” is due out later this month.

Making a joke here would only be redundant.

ICYMI: When Local News Goes Awesome

by

Unless you live in San Diego, you probably missed this, which is a shame. During an investigative report about a local real estate scam artist, one Action News Guy gets a little more than he bargained for. If this was Ron Burgundy, I think things would have happened a little differently.
