    These are PaleoBarefoots, a pair of minimalist chainmail shoes made for running around in the woods pretending you're on a dragon slaying mission or whatever. They're a real product you can actually buy. WHY you'd buy them is beyond me, but maybe you misused your neighbor's t... / Continue →

    This is the $150 Dark Knight Batman hoodie from Marc Ecko. It looks... "Kinda crappy." You said it, not me. It reminds me of what a cheap knockoff of a real Batman hoodie might look like. Yeah, this is no joke. You're looking at the closest thing to taking on the role of Go... / Continue →

    Unveiled at this weekend's San Diego Comic-Con, this is the real-world version of Hyundai's Elantra Coupe Zombie Survival Machine (previously: the renderings). As we had suspected, it's definitely NOT the vehicle you want to be driving when the undead shit hits the fan. Me? ... / Continue →

    This is West Coast Chill, a poorly named energy drink that comes in a self-cooling can. You just press a button on the bottom, and the can will cool the drink inside 30-degrees in 3-5 minutes. No word what happens if the can was already frozen to begin with, but hopefully a g... / Continue →

    This is the new cover of DC Comic's Catwoman #52, which is drawing criticism because it looks like she's just an ass with tits and a head. Oh right, I forgot -- because realistic human anatomy has been such a staple in comics lately. What's the big deal? If Catwoman wants to... / Continue →

    So apparently Rolls Royce puts fiber optic lights in the roofs of its cars to look like lil stars because God forbid you put glass there so you can see the real ones. Impressive, Rolls Royce. Kidding -- I'm pretty sure the limo I took to prom a decade ago had this. Creating ... / Continue →

    This is a viral ad for the TNT network in Belgium. Basically they set up a button in a random Belgian square then waited for somebody to push it. When someone finally does a whole choreographed shitstorm goes down (plus a girl on a motorcycle in lingerie). I think people wer... / Continue →

    In case you haven't heard, marketing agency BBH Labs hired 13 roaming (and possibly scavenging) homeless people and strapped them with belt-bombs Wi-Fi hotspots to help serve the internet needs of South by Southwest (SXSW) convention goers. It's drawing a lot of controversy BE... / Continue →
