First Old Spice knocks it out of the park with their bizarre commercials. Now it looks like Wheat Thins is joining in on the fun, which is great because this sort of humor is just my speed:
Here’s a scan of a page found in a catalog while Karin and I were looking for gifts. This is actually a pretty cool breakdown on different varieties of beer and how they relate to each other. If you’re interested in trying a new beer but don’t know where to start, you can use this info to compare what you already like with similar types of beer. Nice!

Kinda reminds me of the two years of Spanish I took in high school. In español I can tell you my name and count to ten. Let’s hear it for required classes within the public education system.
Remember this guy?
Yep. The ShamWow guy, Vince Shlomi. He hasn’t been seen on air since beating up a prostitute in 2009.
Imagine my surprise when I turned on the television last night and saw good ole’ Vince, minus his annoying faux hawk, pitching something called the Schticky.
But where has Vince been all these years?
If you recall, Vince paid prostitute Sasha Harris $1000 for “straight sex” in March of 2009. When they arrived at Vince’s hotel room, he tried to kiss Sasha who then (according to Vince) immediately bit into his tongue and would not let go. Vince then struck Sasha Harris several times until she let released his tongue, causing facial fractures and lacerations. No charges were filed in the case
The whole incident sounded strange to me. I find it difficult to believe that a prostitute, who had just been paid $1000, decided to attach herself to Vince’s tongue with her teeth and not let go for no reason. Call it a nagging doubt, but I think something rough must have happened between them to illicit that sort of response. The whole situation never sat right with me.
And now Vince is back, and he wants to convince me to part ways with my hard earned money.
Count me out, Vince. Sure, the whole prostitute thing was conveniently hushed up, but your alleged stalking, emotional abuse, and unwanted sexual advances towards your assistant in 2011 is now public record. I’m not saying you did any of these things, but until I know who I’m helping to employ with my cash I’ll stay clear of the Schticky and any other other product you pitch.
I’ve been absorbed in writing my great American novel and didn’t bother to look at the time. Before I knew it the day was done and I had no post for the blog.
But fear not, intrepid believer. It’s on the old stand-by: Pimp somebody else’s site!
And so, here are some fine examples of movie posters from an alternate universe, courtsey of Behance Network. Please check out the link for more examples!
I’m quite partial to The Hangover and Inception posters. I wonder if these will ever be offered for sale?
