Logitech's Kevin Bacon commercial, in which the real Kevin Bacon plays a Kevin Bacon fanatic called Ivan Cobenk, was one of the great ads of last year. Now, there's a hilarious extended version. And it's not just extended—it's interactive. Scroll your mouse around the video, and you'll be able to click on all sorts of silly objects—with many of the links taking you to eBay, where you can bid on the fershtunkende shmates or you can go to the official store: Kevin Wonders of the World.

The Great Wall. Crispy Beef. Rouis Vuitton. Just a few of the many marvels bestowed upon the world by the "ever-inventive" Chinese.Then there's the Cleavage Clamp and what may just be the best infomercial ever. Maybe. Okay, best infomercial with boobs ever.

Say hello to the “Cue the Cab” app for Jose Cuervo by Crispin Porter + Bogusky. Basically, when the need arises, you just press a button and the app calls the closest taxi cab in the area for you. No more hunting online for cab phone numbers or trying to drunkenly flag down a cabbie after closing time. Simply awesome.

I'm not so sure about that. But it is somewhat impressive. Created by Michael Kalish, this installation depicts Mohammad Ali and is made up of 1,300 punching bags, 6.5 miles of stainless steel cable, and over 2,500 pounds of aluminum pipe. It's 22-feet high and took three years to complete. Still not sure why this exists, but hey, it's pretty cool that it does.

You Are Listening To Los Angeles is a mashup of free, Creative Commons ambient music and live LAPD radio scanner transmissions. Sometimes it's a little boring. Other times, you understand exactly why rappers always talk about "so much drama in the LBC." And if LA isn't your cup of tea, you can also listen to NY, Chicago or San Francisco on the same site.
