The Playboy App With Crystal Harris. Hmm...


If only Hugh had given her the app for real, perhaps then he wouldn't be single again living in a mansion surrounded by Playboy Playmates. Wait...

Caffeinate Yourself Popsicle Style. Hmm...

Blue Bottle Macchiato Pops
Makes 6  

1 1/4 c. brewed espresso
1/4 c. heavy cream
1/2 c. milk (I used non-fat, but would recommend 2% or whole milk)
2 T. agave sweetener

Whisk together all ingredients in a medium bowl or 4-cup measuring cup. Taste the mixture and add additional sweetener to taste, if needed. Chill for ~1-2 hours until cold. Pour into popsicle molds and freeze as directed.

This Generation's Major League. Hmm...



Whopperlust. Hmm...


In its final campaign for Burger King, Crispin Porter + Bogusky have tapped into America's obsession with the Whopper once again. This time, with a cable channel where all there is to watch is, well, a Whopper spinning around a flame grill. If you stare at the Whopper for 5 minutes you get a free Whopper. If you stare at it for 10 minutes you get 2 free Whoppers... How? Random alerts pop up and different intervals asking you to select them with your cable TV remote. As you do so, you win. Ridiculous? Maybe but according to news reports, so far Americans have stared for over 300,000 minutes. If viewership continues at this pace, America will have stared at a spinning Whopper for 13,500 hours (810,000 minutes) before the weekend rolls around. I don't know whether to be impressed or worried about that. Either way, CPB I take my hat off to you. Your work for BK over the past 7 years has been inspiring. Pity they no longer see it that way. 

The More You Watch, The Hotter The Party. Hmm...


This is just their teaser video for Perrier's new YouTube campaign that evolves the more it's shared online. What does this mean? Well, they devised a webvideo featuring unbelievably hot party people clubbing it up in what looks like the catacombs beneath Paris. They shot a few versions of it, one more raunchier than the next, literally with clothes melting off people. The more one video is viewed, the closer the next and more debaucherous video gets to being unlocked online. With 4.5mil views already and 3 videos released, it seems to be working quite nicely.
